This time Jay is coming to you from a very special live event that took place at the Entrepreneur’s Secret To Success Event.
If you weren’t there on the day, then now’s your chance to hear Jay’s incredible keynote speech, in which he discussed his story so far, the importance of values, mentors, and the surprising places in which you find life lessons.
- Everything that we do defines us. You can either let your challenges beat you, or learn from them.
- Installing values into your children is important these days, especially as most children have everything.
- Jay came out of university with few practical skills from his business degree, but did learn the far more important lesson of how to survive on a small amount of money each day.
- Opening up to a mentor, and receiving their advice, is the best thing you can do. Not only can they help you achieve bigger things, but can pick you up at your lowest moments.
- Sometimes it takes a tough period in your life to make you realise the value of the people you have in your life.
- We’re always building our own personal story. Focus on it. Remember what you’re creating. Remember what you’re documenting.
- ’Stories are very important’
- ’That’s how you make money: you get something and you sell it’
- ‘You don’t need a complicated vision. You just need something to believe in’
- ‘He gave me the belief that I could do it’
ABOUT THE HOST
Jay Dhillon is a serial entrepreneur, investor and philanthropist based in the UK with a proven track record of growing businesses from start-up to success- and helping others do the same. From humble beginnings, Jay grew his first business from 0-500 employees and three locations, racking up sales of over £30 million – all without any investment other than a small amount of savings. The business went on to acquire major clients such as Landrover, Jaguar, Toyota and New Look, to name a few.
Its huge success inevitably brought about outside interest, and at the age of 33, Jay eventually sold the company to a London investment firm in Doyen Resources. Today, Jay owns several businesses in different sectors and helps entrepreneurs achieve success.
A calling to give back and help others led to Jay being chosen for the highly-coveted role as a Prince’s Trust mentor, where his achievements were marked by a personal invitation to Buckingham Palace to meet Prince Charles.
After helping several young entrepreneurs to success as a mentor for the Trust, Jay’s burning desire to bring his wisdom and knowledge to a wider audience ultimately triggered the concept of The Business Mentor Podcast.
Jay feels that anyone can achieve success in business with the right advice and mentoring and is now sharing his knowledge with his growing audience via his podcast.
In the UK alone, 95% of business fail within the first five years, and Jay’s aim is to reduce that number.
Backed with the hard-earned knowledge and experience from his time in business, The Business Mentor Podcast will share Jay’s personal business lessons as well those of other successful entrepreneur guests who share their wisdom and secrets on the show.
