‘Make sure you put the time in’

So far on this podcast we’ve had several great guest and there are so many yet to come! But on this episode of The Business Mentor Podcast Jay discusses the most valuable asset that a person has and the important of using it in the right way, especially if you’re looking to start a new business.


  • I want to congratulate Luca Gallone who I mentor and have been working with for around 6 years now as he’s just hit 1 million followers on Instagram, which is amazing! He’s been on this podcast twice already and I hope to get him back on here again for some valuable content.
  • Upon reflection of being an entrepreneur, the biggest thing for me was my time. This is because you have to take the time to learn all of these processes, lessons and things that help us become successful.
  • When entrepreneurs fail it’s usually down to them not putting the time in to do things such as research.
  • There’s been people who have said that they’ve done 18 hours of work to me but they’ve not been focusing on the right type of work. So ensure you surround yourself by people who have already been there and done it so you don’t waste that time on doing something that’s not really progressing you.
  • Getting experience in what you want to be doing by working under someone in that niche is one of the best things you can do to learn from them. You’ll see what they do right and wrong and see how you can make your business different to your competitors.
  • The 3 things that’s going to accelerate your success are either: Working under someone to gain knowledge, learn their model or get them as a mentor.
  • If you’re looking to start a business, then put the time in researching and do your due diligence before you jump into anything.


  • “Your biggest and best asset is your time.”
  • “After 20 years in business I’m still learning.”
  • “The reason my most successful clients have done so well is because they’ve put the time and work in.”
  • “At the start you’ve got to put the work in.”
  • ‘Get feedback from people who have already been there and done it successfully’’
  • “Get yourself a mentor.”
  • “really value your time”
  • “Use your time wisely”


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.
