Rank #1: The Simplest Way to Make More Money

Podcast cover
Read more

Keep It Simple.

In this fascinating episode, Jay explains the quickest way to make more money for anyone. He shares the techniques and processes he uses when working with entrepreneurial mentees, shaping and growing their businesses.   

Jay takes us through practical advice that can be implemented rapidly and will quickly lead to more income.   

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Look at what you  already have

Record all the income streams you have, this may be one or multiple streams. What is generating income now? How can you generate more income from your current income stream. This is the quickest way to make more money. 

  • Double up

If you are already making money from something then the quickest way is to double up. There will always be opportunities for innovation but it's important to never neglect the money-making part of the business. 

  • Systemise it

If you have reached a ceiling with your current income stream, don’t want to work in it or grow it further then you should systemise it. 

Entrepreneurs, by their nature, like new ideas so the danger is that you pursue this and neglect the income stream that is making you money. Systemising your business can help to ensure that the money-making income streams run smoothly. 

  • Use a proven formula

If your motivation is to make money  very quickly so you can build your business around it, then use a proven formula. 

Something that has been done before, something that has positive results, an industry that is making money. 

Get the education, get the mentors, get the mastermind and be part of something that will give you the information you need to make it a success. 

Once you have created more cash flow you will have more freedom to  innovate and develop new ideas 

BEST MOMENTS

‘Go into an industry where you know you can make money’ 

‘If you don’t look after it the income stream that is making you money will dry up’ 

‘You may see a new and shiny idea and think it's going to make you lots of money’ 

‘You’ve already got the systems in place’ 

‘Look at what you’ve got initially then move forward’ 

‘You get bombarded by loads of videos telling you how to get rich in 30 days’ 

‘You don’t need to overcomplicate it’ 

‘Ultimately we want to do it for ourselves we want to be the first into the market, innovative and find something different’

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 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.

The Power of Unity, Mentors and Leverage for the Entrepreneur

‘If you are not happy in what you are doing and feel you’ve got something inside you about wanting to have your own business then go and do it’

Catherine Turner and Jay Dhillon are in conversation discussing their entrepreneurial journeys and experience as mentors in this engaging episode. 

They share a passion for mentoring and giving back, helping the next generation of entrepreneurs to achieve their dreams. 

Listen in and be inspired to take action and begin your entrepreneurial journey. 

KEY TAKEAWAYS

The importance of Leveraging

  • Learning to leverage is a lifestyle and being able to do it effectively is beneficial to your mental health. 
  • A lot of people don’t leverage in the right way or understand what leveraging is. It's important to leverage and systemise in the right way to gain the most impact. 
  • Leveraging your lifestyle to make memories with your children and family is what is important. These memories are what we have and hold throughout our lives. 

The journey of an Entrepreneur

  • If you are not happy in what you are doing and feel you’ve got something inside you about wanting to have your own business then take action and do it. 
  • You need to keep going through the tough times, this is when you will be most challenged but is an opportunity for learning. 
  • Do little things every day and momentum will build. 
  • Catherine – there was a moment of realisation that I could either be stuck in a job I hated and didn’t feel passionate about and wasn’t working or I could go my own way and do something I felt passionate about, that’s how it all started, and property was my entry point. 
  • Jay - I didn’t push my brand, I just wanted to build a business, but it is important to build your brand so getting out there and letting people know who you are and what you are doing is important to build your credibility and legacy. 
  • The journey as an entrepreneur is about change, as the journey progresses your goals alter to be more focused on the long term and making a difference, contributing giving back 

Mentoring and Mentees

  • A mentor has been there, done it, seen it, they can help you get through it. 
  • It’s about sharing and passing on the 'knowledge'. 
  • You have to have built a business before you are a mentor, it makes you more valuable. 
  • You have got something to give because you’ve gone through it. 
  • Having a mentor is about investing in yourself. When you are looking for a mentor, find someone who is living the lifestyle, you want someone who has achieved what you want to achieve. 
  • It’s a 2-way thing both the mentor and mentees must be invested in making it work. 
  • Mentoring and coaching are powerful because they hold you accountable. 
  • As a mentor, it’s important for mentees to achieve, to have made something. 
  • It's all about sharing and there is great unity in doing that. 
  • If you are not happy in what you are doing and feel you’ve got something inside you about wanting to have your own business then go and do it.  
  • You can achieve it in different ways, lots of people think you have to have money to make money but there is always a way to make money. 
  • Whatever it is there is a way to start if you have it within you, an entrepreneurial spirit. 

BEST MOMENTS

‘The power is in the action you take’

‘Its your story that they are buying into’

‘You need to go through some challenges to learn and develop’

‘Go through your journey and when you are ready then undertake mentoring’

‘Hiring into chaos only creates more chaos. Making sure you have the systems in place and a plan is vital’

Rank #3: Interview With US Actress & Movie Star Rachele Brooke Smith, Talking About Mindset For Success

Podcast cover
Read more

It’s time to be the hero of your own life story.

Aren’t you tired of always playing as the prey, anyway? Life gets tough, and it’s you, and you alone, who could pull you out of that phase. Now’s the time to build the right mindset to prepare yourself on your ultimate success.

In this episode of The Business Mentor Podcast, Jay talks to Rachele Brooke Smith, an actress and the Founder of the Disruptive Movement. Discover today the different techniques you can use so you can disrupt your thoughts and empower yourself for the next significant steps you’ll do that will change your life. Being the best version of yourself does not require extravagance; use your power within you and take control of your mind, body, and soul to get there.

KEY TAKEAWAY

  • While young Rachele’s friends were attending parties, she was busy preparing for personal development conferences. This was her childhood. It was full of fascination with how the mind works and how important mindset is.
  • Rachele started The Disruptive Movement to help and empower everyone so that they become the hero in their life stories. It’s how you perceive and react to what’s happening to you that could either make or break what you want for your future.

Techniques in Having the Mindset for Success:

  • Be open-minded. If there’s a part of you, your tasks, or your goals that is not serving you or not making you happy about yourself, then be open on trying new things.
  • Have a healthy routine. Create patterns in your daily life depending on what you want your life to be. If you want to be successful and happy in the future, then you have to win at things that you’ll do today.
  • Harness your power of creativity. We’re all creative beings. Choose to use your creativity to produce compelling experiences to help other people.
  • Remember that you are what you consume. What books, podcasts, and videos are you consuming? Who are the people you are following in social media? What are the foods you’re eating?
  • Practice gratitude. On the end of each day, Rachele records herself speaking about things that she’s grateful of. She relistens to them regularly to remind herself and reaffirm her visions while on her journey.
  • Start with a tiny habit. Being disciplined and deciding to make tiny habits every single day can bring a massive benefit to your life right now and in the future.
  • Create value for others. In the digital world, where most people consume their time online, and there’s a lot of noise when it comes to content, it’s best that you aim to be one of helpful voices even to a small group of people.
  • Learn about the Release Meditation Technique. This leaves everything in the past and opens you up to new possibilities.
  • Have a mentor. Find someone who could help you to refocus when you get lost along the way, to brainstorm your ideas with, and also to reinforce all your visions.

BEST MOMENTS

  • “When I first started acting and dancing, that’s the first time I felt alive.”
  • “All the things that I thought the worst that happened to me along the journey ended up being the best things.”
  • “If you keep doing what you’re doing, you keep getting what you’re getting.”
  • “Vulnerability is a superpower.”
  • “What has been helpful is to say, ‘I’m so grateful I’m in the process of becoming my strongest and most beautiful self.’”
  • “Anytime I feel fear, I am rewiring myself so that I feel it, acknowledge it, and be disruptive anyways.”
  • “If you really want to change, you have to have a lot of pain around it.”

Rank #4: Making £17k Per Month With no Real Investment Funds; 24 Year-Old Property Entrepreneur, Ahmed Khan's Story on How he Did This…

Podcast cover
Read more

IN CONVERSATION WITH AHMED KHAN

In this fascinating episode Jay is in conversation with Ahmed Khan, Property Entrepreneur, they discuss and share vital advice about how to begin in business and the mindset and methodology required to ensure growth and success. This podcast provides an informative insight into the successful journeys both Jay and Ahmed have taken in business.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • If you are looking for an opportunity to begin a business consider;
    • choosing something that is tried and trusted
    • if there is someone who can teach you the process
    • if there are other people who can teach you how to do it

  • Communication is key across all areas if you are able to communicate your message in a clear and concise way with passion and commitment more doors will open.

  • When you are young you have a much lower risk - no family, no bills, no mortgage

and everyone wants to give back by helping the new young bloke. The challenges are that people don’t always take young people seriously and you don’t know as much.

  • When you’re in business you will get to a point where you can leverage and put in place systems to continue growth successfully. Technology can be effective in creating the necessary systems.

  • Make 3 lists - things done daily, weekly and monthly, review them to see what can be moved out of the daily list and how systems can support effective progress. When you gain back time through systems this can be reallocated to working on your business.

  • Dedicate time every day to work ON your business, not IN your business. This when you can look at the bigger picture and work on continuing to grow your business.

  • Being around successful people fosters a mindset that will lead you to think about how you can also be successful. The next step is to formulate a plan and begin to implement it.

  • Investing in a mentor demonstrates your personal commitment and signals that you are prepared to invest in yourself.

  • Mentors won’t give you a magic wand, but they can bring certainty. Mentors have seen the patterns and coupled with their own experiences bring the belief that it’s going to be alright as the cycle repeats.

  • Mentoring is only a good business if you want to help people out, there isn’t any leverage in mentoring as there are only 24 hours in a day. It has no scalability and is massively time intensive but it is hugely rewarding.

BEST MOMENTS

‘If you do it right with the right mindset you can see results quite quickly’

‘A very practical approach;  always ask ‘what’s the practicality of it?’

‘When you are younger your risk is lower, but you don’t know as much’

‘When you’re older the risk is higher, but you know more and have better contacts’

‘People who’ve gone through it know it’s a pattern, part of the economic cycle’

People don’t value it if its free’

‘One to one is powerful’

‘It’s nothing I created, someone taught me’

Rank #5: How to Stay Ahead in a Competitive Market!

Podcast cover
Read more

In this hugely informative episode, Jay answers one of the most frequently asked questions

What do you do when the market gets competitive?

If you want to know not only the answer but how to make sure your business is successful in a competitive market listening to this podcast is essential.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Pricing

The client will always demand a lower price because it creates more profit for them, but they will come to an agreement over price If you explain the level of service and value you are providing.

  • Relationships

Building a positive, honest relationship with the client based on trust is key to ensure that if there are issues they can be quickly resolved.

To build relationships it’s important to get in front of the client as much as possible during a job. Ensure that you are in regular contact and offer lots of information, these actions show that you care.

Tell your story – people love a story and it helps to make you stand out from your competitors.

Be realistic about timescales and make sure you can deliver as agreed. Late delivery breaks the trust you have with the client. If there is an unavoidable delay be honest and immediately contact the customer so that they are well informed about any situation.

  • Competitors

Identify what a competitor is not doing or taking out to achieve a lower price. Make the client aware and be very clear about the service you are offering and the advantages you provide.

You must justify why they should pay that price rather than the competitor’s price.

It’s a downward spiral if you do keep reducing your price. You will ultimately reduce the value in your product and won’t be able to deliver the service required resulting in loss of the client.

BEST MOMENTS

‘Makes it real because they know who you are’

‘Show that you care’

‘Little things do make a big impact’

‘If you have an honest relationship it helps you to get better’

‘Need to work with clients who value your product and services’

‘You had 100% fulfillment can you come back in’

‘Everything in business is built on being competitive, that’s what keeps it healthy’

‘If it was easy you wouldn’t be innovating’

Rank #6: How to Prepare For a Recession?

Podcast cover
Read more

Market crashes. Brexit. Recessions.

Be prepared. Look out for your business.

In today’s episode of The Business Mentor Podcast, Jay urges you to prepare for recessions and market crashes. It’s unpredictable when and how grave will recession’s effect be to your business, so it’s better to anticipate the worst right now. Don’t miss the 4 tips that Jay gives on how to prepare for a recession. Whenever it happens, you have to be equipped to get through it. Remember to yourself surrounded by the right support group (including your mentor), be financially stable, and be adaptable. Discover more when you tune in.

KEY TAKEAWAY

    • A recession happens, on average, every 10 years. It happened since 1946, and it’s unpredictable of when exactly it’s going to happen and what’s its effects will be. The last recession that occurred in October 2007 took 65 months to recover.
    • Lately, there has been too much competition, and a lot of people are looking at investing in property. According to Jay, that’s a tell-tale sign that recession is coming.
      • Laying off employees happens a lot in the first phase of recession.
    • You don’t know what you don’t know. You have to be prepared when it happens. For Jay, it was approaching his mentor about it. He asked about his mentor’s experience, studied about the recession and did a SWOT analysis. It became clearer for Jay how he should plan for his business’ next move.
    • Keep going even if it’s recession. It will happen no matter what, and your business shall be able to withstand the outturns. You should be fully aware of even the minute details of your business so you can prepare, and once it happens, it’ll be easy to adapt.
    • 4 Tips for preparing for recession:
      • Have an emergency fund. Jay advises that you save at least 10% of your business’ profit. The sooner you start, the better.
      • Have multiple streams of income. If you only did one market, you’re vulnerable. There’s a lot of ways you can earn income. Look into where you can branch your primary business, look into the skills that you can develop.

  • Keep some cash aside. When the market crashes, stocks become cheap, so buy stocks.

    • Have the right support network. The most important thing is you have the right mindset that can face the consequences that happen during a recession. If you’ve got the right mentor and the right community, you become firmer and more driven to overcome it.

BEST MOMENTS

  • “If you’re not prepared, when it comes, it could take out the market.”
  • “Recession comes out of the blue.”
  • “When recession does come, rather than panicking and saying, ‘We can’t do anything’, we did a simple SWOT analysis.”
  • “If you’re going through hell, just keep going.”
  • “You may never use your emergency fund, but at least it’s there when you need it.”

Rank #7: Don't Say Yes to EVERYONE!

Podcast cover
Read more

Should You say Yes to Every Customer or Client?

Should you say yes to every customer or client?, This is a frequently asked question by entrepreneurs and in this episode, Jay provides not only the answer but advice on how you can consistently qualify your customers and clients to make sure they are right for you and your business.

Listen in now to hear how to build an avatar of your ideal customer and use it effectively to move your business forward.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • When you start a business you are at your most vulnerable and if you get the wrong type of customer or wrong company then it can stress to both you and your business.
  • You need to qualify a client and make sure they are the right fit for you.
  • Creating an avatar of your ideal customer can be an effective way to establish who your ideal customer is.
  • It will provide you with a checklist of what you want to work with and will represent your ideal customer.
  • You will find it easier to recognise what is and isn’t a good client for you and your business
  • It’s important to recognise there is a difference between a bad client and a difficult client.
  • A bad client will be someone who doesn’t pay, doesn’t give the information you need and their expectations are not what they should be.
  • A difficult client will be someone who asks lots of questions.
  • It's important to not say yes to any customer or client unless you are really sure they are the type of people you want to work with.
  • Work on a sales funnel so you are bringing in a continuous flow of new customers and clients then you are in a position to decide who you say yes or no to.

BEST MOMENTS

‘It’s so much easier if you have identified your ideal customer by creating an avatar’

‘Not only am I checking if I can help them I’m also working out if I want to work with them’

‘We don’t say yes to everybody’

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 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.

Rank #8: Celebrity A-List Cake Maker Paz Heer; Working With World Elite Stars, Such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Floyd Mayweather to Name a Few..

Podcast cover
Read more

This episode is a fantastic opportunity to find out about the journey of Paz Heer ‘ Cake Maker to the Stars’. Jay discusses with Paz the traits of entrepreneurs and how these have played a vital role in the success story of the ‘Cake Maker to the Stars’. Listen in to find out more.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • The beginning of the journey

I went through university studying marketing and retail but still didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do. Entrepreneurs were very much a part of our family. My mum broke down barriers in her work as the first lady Asian driving instructor in Midlands alongside her role as a social worker.

  • When there was an opportunity to take over a cake business and I went for it.

I didn’t know anything about baking and had to work my way up from the bottom. I worked with the previous owners and learnt from them.

I started at the grassroots of baking, learnt all about that and then was able to begin learning about decoration. I have always been creative, so the decorating was an exciting prospect. I took the skills I learnt and then practised extensively. I had no other option other than to practice non-stop, it's not glamorous.

As a business owner you’ve got realise that you are always learning. Lots of business owners fail to recognise this and it is damaging to their businesses.

  • Knowing your worth

You take on everything when you start, whether you can do it or not – it’s being a busy fool, you need to understand your skills and worth and develop the confidence to say no in some circumstances.

Why do all those hours if you are going to end up with something the customer doesn’t want, there is no profit involved and you potentially damage your reputation.

  • Reputation is everything

If you have a product or service you must take a long-term view. With the reviews we have, as part of service, the market will call you out. Sometimes you may not be able to compete on price but can offer great service.

  • Doors opening

I had the opportunity to make a cake for Floyd Mayweather and the media coverage opened lots of new doors. Following the positive media, I networked to secure more work with high profile celebrities. This was important as I was aware the initial media interest in the Floyd cake was limited so I wanted to make sure I could continue the wave.

  • Future plans for the business

I am going to launch my own YouTube video series and brand aimed with the celebrity cakes as I want to see how far I can go with this and I am still very involved in the day to day aspects of the cake shop

My passion is the designing of cakes where I’m given a brief and have the opportunity to be creative doing new things.

  • Key lessons

There is no short cut, I had to wash pots and work my way up

You have to keep doing it over and over, don’t give up something will happen

With patience and hard work, you will create the luck

BEST MOMENTS

‘Let the dots connect themselves together’

‘A true trait of an entrepreneur is about putting the work in’

‘If you’re looking to buy a business find out if the current owners care’

‘It’s all about the networking’

‘It’s a piece of art, not just a cake’

‘You're not just feeding someone with the cake it's about creating a celebration’

‘You can create a visual and a special memory for  lots of different celebrations’

‘Grab everything, work out how to do it later’

‘I’d rather have a happy customer’

‘I’m talking big time, ‘A’ list celebrities’

‘Everyone has their own personal journey’

Rank #9: Jay Dhillon & Mark Homer Talk Business Strategies, Foreign Property Investment & Jeremy Corbyn!

Podcast cover
Read more

What drives you to keep going in property? One of the fascinating questions that serial entrepreneur, investor and philanthropist Jay Dhillon poses to Mark for The Business Mentor Podcast. They talk about Mark's childhood in Singapore, how he got into property and the rights and wrongs of politics and property in 2019. Listen here for a conversation on learning from two experts in property, and business.

Key Takeaways

What are you doing at the moment? I’ve got three projects on the go at the moment. Our biggest project is just under 100 flats. I’ve got another project, with a commercial tenant on the ground floor with some residencies above. I’m doing lots of different things, with various different projects.

How was your childhood? I was born in Singapore and came back to England when I was around 12. I went to an international school in Jakarta in Indonesia. Jakarta is a crazy city, pollution, and people everywhere. I learnt the local dialect and played outside with the other kids in the area. I’ve found that to be a really useful experience in dealing with very different types of people.

Private schools give you a bigger network and a bigger outcome. The difference between the mindset of the private school, and the local college in the area is massive. The people I met at college are all doing more vocational things like dentists, doctors, and solicitors. Whereas the private school went more into business, and are earning lots of money. There is no right and wrong, but if you have the opportunity to invest in your children you can.

The academics are really useful. If my child wants to go to university, I’ll encourage them to but at the expense of life skills, I think that’s wrong. I think if you can have academic skills, and have business skills, rather than just what a textbook says then that’s even better.

In 1997/98 it was like the gold rush, and the market was ripe. My father had worked across the globe and met a lot of business people. He knew that business and property was a good route to go down. My friend had made over £70,000 on property and even without planning permission added an extension. I got really into property books, videos, learning loads. I met a local letting agent who'd figured out which properties were good to buy in Peterborough, which is where I started really.

I’d bought lots of properties abroad especially in Eastern Europe and Florida. So I thought that when they would enter into the EU there would be an increase in the middle class and the property values would go up. What I didn’t realise was that I didn’t know the local knowledge. It’s really exciting to have international property, but the yields are really low, and the maintenance will be very high. Everything that you’ve learnt in the UK is wrong abroad, and you have to learn it all again. There is lots of corruption in various different places around the world, and it’s really difficult to work out the local rules if you’re not from there.

Treat your property as a business, so systemise it. The one guarantee in business is that it will change. If your systemising your business, doing monthly management accounts, and getting your viewings and inspections sorted then you are going to find it easier to adapt to the change. You’ll find it easier to grow your business because you are able to find out what is working and what isn’t.

Do you think the middle class now are being hammered, so you need to grow all the time? You need to grow otherwise you are in decline. If you carry on doing what you’re doing and not grow, then you will fail. We’ve had various changes in the legislation, and it will all happen again. Make sure you get a really good accountant, who’ll be able to save loads of money for your tax bill.

Let’s talk about Jeremy Corbyn if he did get into power what would happen? People were concerned about the Labour party before but Tony Blair turned out to be quite a light touch. He says he will introduce rent control, but hasn’t given out any specifics on that. Dependant on how that is introduced could be positive or negative. He says he is going to nationalise, water, and rail. With big companies, he says he will give 10% of the shareholders to the staff, but I don’t know how that is going to work in practice because they are so divested. I don’t think he will be a sustainable model. The debacle that is the EU is costing the country millions in decisions not taken, and uncertainty.

Which property/business strategies will work in 2019, and why? In business and property it’s best to find what you love and what you’re good at. If you’re good at marketing then build a business that needs that skill. Build a team around you who are good at the things that you are not good at. It’s better to do what you love rather than what’s hot in the media at the minute.

What drives you? What keeps you going? I like driving income, and rent roll, I like having a bigger and bigger wall of money to hit the back account every month. I find that very exciting, more than the value of the properties. I get a lot of pleasure in learning from others in the training business we have. We are able to have choices, travel and buy the right house that I want.

Where would you start in property now? I would buy single lets, under £140,000, probably stuff that has been built in the 1970’s. West Midlands, and in the North are probably best rather than in the South. Cut your teeth, and make some mistakes before moving to HMO’s. You don’t have to move up, just do what you enjoy.

What mentors have helped you? There have been loads of different people over the years. I have a lot of friendships who’ve done lots of different things, often in their 50’s and 60’s who have been there and done it all. I had more informal type mentors.

Rank #12: Long Eaton (Nottingham) Property Hub Q&A with Jay Dhillon!

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode of the Business Mentor Podcast, we hear Jay answers questions during the Q&A session during a talk about ‘Property as a Business & Multiple Streams of Income’ which was held last February 26 in Long Eaton Hub. He met with fellow property investors, and he was an absolute inspiration and a mentor to all of them.

Jay also talked about his businesses – how did he start and grow them, what efforts he has to put in them, and what obstacles he has to face every single day. If you want to increase your streams of income, make sure to take down notes of what Jay has to say about it.

KEY TAKEAWAY

  • When to start your brand and create your content? The ‘brand’ can just be doing one or two post on your Facebook. When Jay began the Business Mentor Podcast slowly. It wasn’t getting enough engagements, but this didn’t let him stop producing content. But now, he was able to monetise it and invest the money to the team.
    • He sets up the systems to set up his brand with the help of his staff and technology.
  • When something unexpected happens, what do you do with it? Acknowledge the fact that not everything you do will go as you planned. Be ready for it and condition yourself that there will be times that you’re going to do things outside your comfort zone.
    • Sometimes you’ll have to stay in and won’t be able to go home to get a shower or see your family. There are sacrifices.
  • What is passion? Jay’s mentor advised, “If you do something well enough and it makes you money, it makes you passionate about it.” That’s the way it goes. Passion is overrated and makes some money.
  • What drives Jay to do the podcast? Jay answers the legacy out of it, and he’s able to help other people. He’s happy that he’s doing what he loves right now.
  • What do you do if you want to start a business (i.e. coaching business)?
    • Think of what you can charge.
    • Offer them a demo service for free.
    • High ticket – Think of what events could you offer.
    • Start small.
  • Should you use LinkedIn? LinkedIn is one of the hottest platforms. It’s easier to network and get some resources on the platform.

BEST MOMENTS

  • “You got to get on with it. Sometimes you got to get dirty.”
  • “For me, I work for mentors that are above me. I look up to them and think, ‘I want to be on your level.’”
  • “Don’t think of building your social media to build this massive platform. Just build a core group of people and built it slowly.”

Rank #13: Dealing with Rejection in Business

Podcast cover
Read more

“Rejections should not discourage you or should it end your dreams.”

As entrepreneurs, you’re going to have to accept that it is highly likely that you won’t please everyone. A customer can love your product/service, but they could also dislike it too. But should you be affected by a sole customer’s decision?

Today on The Business Mentor Podcast, Jay discusses the 4 key areas to focus on when dealing with rejections in business. It’s understood the first rejection will significantly hurt you and that’s okay; We are only human! But you have to accept that there can and will be more rejection in the future. Treat them as motivation that can help you grow and progress in your business. Time to discover more! so tune in...

KEY TAKEAWAY

  • Rejection an excellent way to tell you that your product is not good enough for the market. You’ll be rejected not just once, but twice, thrice, or a couple of times. But you should take this as learning instead.
  • You won’t please everybody. But you have to have that burning desire to continue what you have started and aim to be successful.
  • Get the right people around you. Have a mentor who you can help you grounded and remind you of your long-term goals. Don’t let rejections get to you.

4 Areas to Look At When Dealing With Rejections In Business:

  • Don’t take it personally. Your business is a separate entity from your personal life.
    • For example, some business owners think that selling their products and services to their family and friends. Though it might be good for your business, there’s a possibility that they really don’t need and buy them. And business owners tend to get hurt when this happens.
  • Make it a learning opportunity. Aim for constant learning. If someone tells you something, listen and make notes on how you can incorporate it to improving your business.
  • Use it to educate customers. Instead of seeing the customer’s comments as an attack, why don’t you educate them on what you can do for them and what other services can your offer. Give them free trials, demos, etc.
  • Take it as an indicator where to go next. Round up 50-60 people, ask for feedback, and evaluate the gathered data.

BEST MOMENTS

  • “Rejection is part of the business. You are gonna get rejected.”
  • “Rejection is not a bad thing, it’s a positive thing.”
  • “If someone or the statistics and the math are telling you that the part isn’t up to speed, it’s a great way to learn, right?”
  • A lot of us assume that the customer we deal with knows everything about our product, they don’t. so, have an option to educate them.”

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode, Jay explains how important taking breaks away from your work is. He also covers the benefits of taking small breaks away from work and how they can benefit you in several ways.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

Taking complete breaks from work can change the game

  • When you’re working hard and are so busy that you don’t even consider taking time off, taking a break can be a massive game changer.
  • I remember talking to my mentor when I was absolutely flat out and he told me I need to take a break, I felt like I couldn’t because I was so busy. But I later realised that not taking a break would lead me to crash and burn.
  • You need to take breaks to notice the little things that can make a huge difference to your pathway.
  • Take a day or two to relax and take a break to reflect on what you’ve done and achieved even if your mind is telling you you can’t.
  • Mini breaks will help give you clarity of thought which is partially why you see all of these successful people playing golf, not only for Networking but to relax and have a break from their work.
  • If you’re going through a tough time or a massive challenge, take some time away from your work. This doesn’t need to be a holiday or a big getaway, it could just mean an evening away from work enjoying some ‘you time’.
  • Allow your body to be recharged, we as entrepreneurs think we’re machines that can keep going. However, we’re more like batteries and we need to be recharged, breaks will enable this.

Benefits of taking breaks from work

  • You will have thoughts come into your mind that wouldn’t have come in there if you were thinking about your day to day work.
  • It will give you the chance to refocus on your work, when you come back you’ll be refocused, which will give you a clearer mind and enable you to work more effectively.
  • Breaks will benefit your health as your mind and body isn’t build to be stressed all of the time. It gives your body the chance to relax and recover.
  • You’re able to become more creative when your mind is away from your work.

BEST MOMENTS

‘Taking a break is sometimes the biggest game changer’

‘1:1 Mentoring is such a game changer for me and you get that focus of thought’
