 ELENA CARDONE : Building Your EMPIRE Is More IMPORTANT NOW Than EVER! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2406

What are the Cardones up to lately? In this episode of The Business Mentor Podcast, Jay talks to Elena Cardone about how the power couple (referring to her and Grant, of course) are staying sane, spending time with their family, and keeping their business up and running even though they’re stuck at home. Luckily for the Grants, they’ve prepared for such a threat to their business empire. They’ve got their Plan B, and even more back-ups, up their sleeves. But what if we aren’t like them? What if our businesses are in the danger zone lately? Elena Cardone recognises this—that there will be more people who’ll be suffering from this outbreak. Listen to Elena give some tips so you can still get back up as soon as the economic turmoil dissipates. Other topics discussed today: separating business talks from family bonding time, maintaining healthy couple relationships, and more, so tune in. KEY TAKEAWAYS Most analysts have long been telling us about a market crash, but this global market shutdown was not what they were expecting. This coronavirus pandemic totally changed everything. But Elena and Grant were prepared. This is what separates them from the others. And they really hope others were too. The truth is, most small-scale businesses will suffer. They won’t survive this collapse. They must go back to the planning table and rethink of ways they can make it through this transition to—what most call—the ‘new normal’. Maybe this is the right time to reinvent and look at new ventures in other industries. Always learn how to separate business stuff from your family life. We are all stuck at home, with very limited movement. We have even taken our work home. So, imagine the stress from work and the additional stress from all the COVID-19 news colliding—it could get difficult to keep the familial ties healthy. It’s already difficult to avoid clashes of ideas or aspirations between two people who live together. Surely even more so with a couple who are in business together? Whenever there’s an altercation, Elena sees to it that she makes the conscious effort to pause, breathe, and to be less emotionally reactive. Trust is also very important—you have to let your partner do his/her part. And also, remember to always stand beside your partner no matter what. Some tips from Elena so our businesses can go through this tough period: Accept where we’re at and there will be a needed change. Economise; don’t spend frivolously. You can use your resources to improve on yourself. Surround yourself with positive people. Everything’s tough, so don’t let anyone make it tougher. Find time to create fun now and then. Do everything to remove the stress! BEST MOMENTS “The uncertainty of not knowing the market, not knowing what’s coming, is stressful no matter who you are.” “It’s hard to not get sucked up in it with the uncertainty going around.” “We will hire people” “There are changes, and that you just have to accept that life is different.” “Wear your role in the relationship despite the difficultness.” VALUABLE RESOURCES You can reserve your 10X Growth Conference seat now!

Together they have created a real estate portfolio of almost one-billion dollars. Elena has been happily married since 2004 (July 4th to be exact – and the fireworks have never stopped) and lives with her husband Grant and their two daughters, Sabrina and Scarlett, in Miami Beach.

From humble beginnings, Jay grew his first business from 0 to 500 employees and three locations, racking up sales of over £30 million – all with no investment other than a slight amount of savings. The business went on to acquire major clients such as Landrover, Jaguar, Toyota and New Look, to name a few. Its immense 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 succeed 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.

 GRENADE | Building a BILLION Dollar Brand with CEO ALAN BARRATT | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3543

In this episode of The Business Mentor Podcast, Jay talks to Alan Barratt, Founder and CEO of Grenade, the UK’s fastest-growing sports performance company, to shed a light on how can businesses, especially those in retail, continue to thrive during these tough times. He gives different tips so you and your team can stay productive during and after the outbreak. Some other topics discussed today are why mentoring is better than coaching, why being choosy with people who surround you shouldn’t be frowned upon, how he built his fitness brand (which is soon to reach the billion dollar value) from the bottom, tune in today! KEY TAKEAWAYS This coronavirus pandemic will make a big dent to the global market economy. If your business has prepared for such, then there won’t be a colossal problem. Businesses, in general, were doing very well before it, so this will just be a pause. For some, this might be a big reset. Businesses should always aim to be sustainable and be prepared for any crash. It can happen anytime, not only amid a global pandemic. Mentoring is better than coaching. Mentoring focuses on your holistic development throughout time while coaching focuses on the outcome itself, mostly on just one (i.e. your business). Mentoring values also not just self-improvement, but also your relationships and network. Grenade company is now celebrating its 10th Alan will forever be grateful and proud of achieving such a milestone. He wouldn’t expect that his passion for sports nutrition would also bring impact to larger communities decades ago. Everything will change. Stop waiting for the shops to reopen. You can move now. Accept the change that is happening and learn to adapt slowly. You can up your online marketing, strengthen your team dynamics (& check on them) and prepare your after-lockdown plan. So, how do you plan to go back and continue business operations efficiently? Though completed diplomas and certificates are influential factors in increasing your credibility, you can’t spend most of the time sitting at a desk. It helps enormously for you to put what you learn into practice. You understand the business operations more when you become hands on. BEST MOMENTS “2020 is going to be the year we lost, but we’ve gained a lot of perspective.” “I’d rather learn through someone’s experience than set up a business and teach people stuff that they haven’t done themselves.” “It’s every entrepreneur’s job to surround themselves with people clever than they are.” “Less thinking, more doing.” VALUABLE RESOURCES Alan Barratt: £70 a Week to Billion Dollar Brand | Grenade's Secret Recipe | Rob Moore’s YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ch1lv7GBVW4 Order products from Grenade: https://linktr.ee/grenadeofficial ABOUT THE GUEST Alan Barratt is the Founder and CEO of Grenade, the fastest growing weight management, energy and lifestyle brand in the world.

 Generating $20 million using LinkedIn and how YOU can do this also with Dennis Brown | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2088

“Present yourself as if you’re going to sit down with one of your prospects for lunch.” In this episode of The Business Mentor Podcast, Jay asks Dennis Brown how can entrepreneurs utilise LinkedIn to gain more leads and more clients. Dennis has successfully grown his business through LinkedIn, as soon as he signed up, he landed his first six-figure client. Hard to believe for some since it’s a platform for millions and millions of people. Dennis  wants you to know it’s possible—you can also hit the “LinkedIn Lottery”! They also discuss the 3 main things you can do to utilise LinkedIn, 3 primary strategies on generating business on LinkedIn, what highly successful people do, how to scale up your business and more. KEY TAKEAWAYS Before you become the expert, you have to be a practitioner. There is more you can learn from being in the workforce and having hands-on entrepreneurial experience than reading business books. You can memorise all theories you read, but you have to learn how they apply in the business world. It’s easy to scale up a business when you acknowledge that you won’t be alone climbing the ladder—you need a team. You want your business to grow bigger and continue thriving. Not let it stand still. Let others do tasks you aren’t an expert at. How can you utilise LinkedIn? Find. Connect. Engage. Your target market is easy to find in LinkedIn. Everything will appear in the search results. Then, gather some sales intelligence—this will depend on whatever relationship you want to build with the individual. Write the perfect LinkedIn Connection Request before sending it to the prospect. Don’t use the default template; make it as personal possible. After that, you can message them, or they can now see your content where they can engage with you and other people. 3 Primary Strategies on Generating Businesses on LinkedIn: Paid Advertising, Targeting Outreach, Content Utilising LinkedIn is not about having the greatest number of connections. It’s about having quality connections—engaging with people who you can be of value to and vice versa. Publishing some impactful content helps too as the LinkedIn algorithm will make sure you reach your targeted market. BEST MOMENTS “There’s a difference in being a practitioner and knowing only the theories.” “I need to find the right people. And more than finding the right people, I need to be willing to trust them and give away the things I was already doing.” “If you’re selling a business, then the people you are selling to are in LinkedIn.” “Don’t get caught up in the numbers of connections and followers you have.” VALUABLE RESOURCES Listen to The Growth Experts Podcast on Apple Podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/the-growth-experts-podcast/id1339203435 Read Danny Brown’s The 7 Habits of Highly Successful LinkedIn Users! here: http://www.linkedacademy.com/ Download The Ultimate Guide to Generating Inbound Leads with LinkedIn for FREE here: https://www.askdennisbrown.com/guide Read Mike Michalowicz's book Profit First: Transform Your Business from a Cash-Eating Monster to a Money-Making Machine here: https://profitfirstbook.com/ Listen to LinkedIn Ads Show by AJ Wilcox on Google Podcasts: https://podcasts.google.com/?feed=aHR0cHM6Ly9saW5rZWRpbmFkcy5saWJzeW4uY29tL3Jzcw&hl=en-PH ABOUT THE GUEST Dennis Brown is a successful entrepreneur and the author of The 7 Habits of Highly Successful LinkedIn Users.

 BILLIONAIRE David McCourt Interview : How To SURVIVE And make MONEY During The ECONOMIC Collapse | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2593

When David McCourt, the billionaire entrepreneur, was writing his book Total Rethink, he didn’t know it would be so relevant so soon. Industries have been shaken up big time during this pandemic. So, in this episode of The Business Mentor Podcast, Jay and David discuss how business leaders and entrepreneurs should think (and act) during and after the coronavirus crisis. Listen as they give their insight into the ‘new normal’, the urban-rural divide, the ‘cash is crash’ myth, the need for incremental change, and more. David also shares what it is he has been doing to further improve the state of the telecom industry in Ireland. Plus, he also answers viewers’ questions related to the coronavirus. KEY TAKEAWAYS David has always been a big-time innovator in the telecom industry. Currently, he’s securing the largest public-private partnership in Ireland, which aims to bridge the urban-rural divide. Those in rural Ireland can soon have the same level of support given to urban areas. A successful business makes money and contributes value to society. It’s possible to be a millionaire, or even a billionaire, as long as your determination and passion never falter. Listen to what your gut is telling you, just ensure that it also helps other people. There will be a new normal. In terms of jobs, it will be a different responsibility that you’ll take in once you return to your job. For some, unfortunately, they might have no job to go back to because of the changing demand. It will also be inherently easier for the elite to bounce back from the coronavirus crisis than those who work under them. What can small businesses do amid the Covid19 pandemic? Watch the cash. Cash is the oxygen of your business. Work harder than you ever did before. Stay focused. And ask yourself, how can my business fit in? Aim for incremental change. Since everything is going so fast, it’s time to think of revolutionary ways to cope and find solutions. Communicate clearly. Be compassionate to the people affected by the crisis. There will be ground-breaking innovations that can emerge. How does an entrepreneur start again post-coronavirus? Go back to what you consider is your strongest suit. It’s easier to bounce back and climb the ladder when you’ve been playing the game for a long time. BEST MOMENTS “When you come from the bottom and you have nothing, you’re much more willing to take risk.” “What you should do with your life, because it’s a limited amount of time, is something you love with the people you love for a reason you love.” “Entrepreneurs need to communicate clearly. They need to be consistent, empathetic, and passionate.” “Be disciplined. Say NO more often.” VALUABLE RESOURCES Read Total Rethink: Why Entrepreneurs Should Act Like Revolutionaries by David McCourt.

 Rob Smallbone Interviews Jay Dhillon - Recorded in Feb 2020 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2300

This week, Jay is joined by entrepreneur Rob Smallbone KEY TAKEAWAYS The Coronavirus outbreak has the potential to cause a crash, but Jay is cautious. Panic and speculation are far more likely to invoke trouble than the virus itself. Preparation is what helped Jay to survive the last recession. Do all you can to survive, and ask yourself the question: If my supply chain disappeared tomorrow, could I survive? As a business-owner, you need to make sure that you’re the one who can take advantage of your competitor’s poor planning in these circumstances, and not the other way around. Business has to go on, so make sure you’re the one doing so. Jay built a successful business and then sold it, allowing him a rare insight into the entire process of entrepreneurship that many do not have. It has made him one of the most sought-after coaches in the world. The difference between a good coach and a good mentor is that a mentor usually teaches by relating a real-life example, which is much more effective in terms of instruction. One of the greatest things to come out of podcasting is that Jay has built relationships, formed connections, and created a legacy that will last and endure. Be patient. If you’re consistent in your approach, and take your time, you’ll succeed. Don’t just look for quick wins. Find a strategy that works for you and stick to it. BEST MOMENTS ‘Preparation is so important now’ ’Some hard decisions had to be made’ ‘We’re buying the business, not the business owner’ ‘If I’m going to mentor, then this is my challenge’ ‘Doing it is the most important thing’ ‘Look at yourself. Have you been going up or down?’ ‘Be patient and learn to pivot' ‘What are you going to do today?’ ‘KMF – Keep Moving Forward’ ROB SMALLBONE’S CONTACT METHODS LinkedIn Facebook Instagram Twitter YouTube VALUABLE RESOURCES The Property Nomads Website The Property Nomads Podcast – iTunes The Property Nomads - Stitcher Buy To Let: How To Get Started – By Rob Smallbone (Amazon) The Business Mentor Podcast - https://www.jay-dhillon.com/podcast Jay Dhillon’s website - https://www.jay-dhillon.com Jay Dhillon YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNRouhFVktGDQcCRAzoHydQ 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.

 Swim! And Have a Shark Mindset with NBA Superstar Walter Bond | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3020

“We need to keep escalating up the food chain to keep getting bigger, faster, and stronger. That’s the attitude of an athlete. That’s what we bring to the business world.” Our guest for today is Walter Bond, a pro NBA player turned entrepreneur. In this episode of The Business Mentor Podcast, learn about the transformation that having a shark mindset will bring in your journey towards success. Be determined like a hunting shark. This discussion also covers the difference of mentorship and leadership, the importance of talent and ability in choosing a career, the similarities of excelling in sports and business, and much more! KEY TAKEAWAYS How to make mentorship work for you? You and your mentor must have a harmonious relationship. Find a good mentor who you can trust and communicate well with. Follow and execute what your mentor encourages you to do. Get out of your comfort zone and put in the work. What can we learn from pro athletes turned entrepreneurs? Athletes value the importance of the process and development. Not everything can happen instantly. You can’t expect success to come the next day in a business. Do things incrementally so you’ll get the long-lasting results. Like in NBA, master the fundamentals and be incredible at everything to really excel. Take a break if needed, enjoy the off-season. Have a shark mindset. Great white sharks are positioned so highly in the food chain because they’re ruthless and insatiable. Sharks too need to move a lot, or else they die. Be determined and unrelenting as much as possible. Leaders are readers. Walter’s top tip for aspiring entrepreneurs is to commit to the journey and read a lot about what you’re going into. Do what you can to gain knowledge. There are many provided resources out there. BEST MOMENTS “It wasn’t like I chose basketball; basketball chose me. I was a good athlete.” “Patience. It takes time. When you’re given advice in mentoring or coaching, you have to do it over the course of time.” “… We took them to an off-season process so to experience exponential growths. The same metaphor in sports translates to business in a million different ways.” “I made it to the NBA because I’ve mastered the fundamentals of basketball. I’ve been successful in the business because I’ve mastered the fundamentals of business.” “Before we decide on our career, we need to discover our gifts.” VALUABLE RESOURCES Download Swim!: How a Shark, a Suckerfish, and a Parasite Teach You Leadership, Mentoring, and Next Level Success by Walter Bond On Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07VKQN37P/ Download your FREE shark action plan here: https://walterbond.com/ ABOUT THE GUEST Walter Bond is a NBA player turned entrepreneur.

 100's of Millions of Views and Building a Global Brand of " Singing Dentist " Dr Milad Shadrooh Joins me on The Business Mentor Podcast | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2441

The Singing Dentist Dr Milad Shadrooh didn’t know his videos would break the internet and make the international news. When he made a parody of Hotline Bling, he was just in the zone singing and not really thinking about what others might think of it. In this episode of The Business Mentor Podcast, the Singing Dentist shares stories about his childhood, his career, and his rise to fame. Learn about some tips for private and self-employed dentists who are massively affected by the coronavirus pandemic, so tune in! Also, help NHS by purchasing The Singing Dentist’s latest single I Like Molars. You can check links to where you can purchase and stream the track below. KEY TAKEAWAYS Dr Milad was born in Iran and moved in the UK when he was 5 years old. He recalls that it was already becoming a doctor that he answers whenever he gets asked about his dreams. He is now 39, a dentist, and has now a global brand. Michael Jackson, Earth, Wind & Fire, and Chaka Khan are just a few of the musical influences of the Singing Dentist Dr Milad Shadrooh. He danced, sang, and rapped whenever there’s a chance when he was young. He was also a DJ for some time with quite a few gigs under his belt! His first viral video, a parody of the Hotline Bling by Drake, was initially just shared to his dentist friends, then to other dentists, and then to the whole wide world. The people loved it, so Dr Milad made more funny and entertaining videos. Is it safe to go to the dentist this pandemic? Since the government advises to lessen close contact, dentist appointments are no exception. Dentists are only allowed to give medical advice through telephone triaging setup by the NHS; physical treatment can only be performed in an emergency. Some private dentists might have a hard time surviving this coronavirus outbreak since there are no patients. As they are private businesses they can furlough staff but even the government help might not be enough for many. BEST MOMENTS “Reduce social interaction. Stay indoors. Be sensible and follow the guidelines… These aren’t tough things that we’ve been asked to do.” “Right now, we’re in the survival phase. Stay afloat.

 GRANT CARDONE | Economic CRASH & What We Can Do About It NOW! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1958

“This sh*t is real, and it’s not going anywhere. You’ve got to do something about it.” – Jay Dhillon In this episode of The Business Mentor Podcast, Jay talks to Grant Cardone, a bestselling author of multiple business books, about the imminently predicted economic crash. Grant himself has had to implement drastic measures in his own business to keep it afloat amid the coronavirus situation. Though some may criticise his big moves, Grant firmly believes he has done the right thing for the future of his business and team. Learn today how you can do it too, especially if you’re a solopreneur. KEY TAKEAWAYS The first thing we must do is solve the coronavirus crisis first before we look for people to blame for it. Just like in business, how you handle tough situations is an enormous part of the game. What could solopreneurs learn from the current coronavirus situation: Make money. Don’t just offer free content Avoid Houses. Sell. Get out of equities. Don’t buy yet. Acknowledge the seriousness of the situation. Focus on how you can survive the economic crash first. You can’t help other people if you are having a hard time maintaining your financial stability. Some people will comment on the small blunders you make, but not on the gigantic steps you have taken to save your company and your team. Don’t mind them. What existing assets do you have that can be liabilities in the future? Even your loved one’s safety (which can be considered an asset) can be compromised amid this crisis. First, get the mentoring you need to keep going. Then, you can guarantee your loved ones’ safety. BEST MOMENTS “To solopreneurs, don’t go into an economy by yourself. It’s too small.” - Grant “Shit happens. This stuff happens. It’s about reacting to it and making sure you’re prepared.” – Jay “When you’re broke, toilet paper is not the first thing  on your list.” – Grant “The reason that people are busy is they have data that are conflicting.” – Grant VALUABLE RESOURCES Read the article US job losses: Stock market panic as 6.6 million apply for unemployment in week here: https://www.express.co.uk/finance/city/1267087/us-stock-market-dow-jones-us-unemployment-figures-wall-street-us-stocks Read the article London Live condemned for allowing David Icke to air 'lunatic conspiracy theories' here: https://www.thejc.com/news/uk-news/london-live-condemned-for-allowing-david-icke-to-air-lunatic-conspiracy-theories-1.498968 Listen to the Business Mentor Podcast Episode #62 where Grant talks to Jay About Property, Recession, Religion, Money, & Family here: https://businessmentorpodcast.com/billionaire-grant-cardone-talks-to-jay-about-property-recession-religion-money-family/ Read the book How To Become A Millionaire Now by Grant Cardone ABOUT THE GUEST Grant Cardone is a multimillionaire entrepreneur whose personal property empire is valued at over $900 million.

 PATRICK BET-DAVID - The Opportunities Now in the WORLD CRISIS..! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2324

Cash doesn’t mean ‘crash’. Saving is an evergreen philosophy that businesses should have noted since they started. Entrepreneurs should put aside some savings to be ready for the rainy days. In this episode of The Business Mentor Podcast, Jay invites Patrick Bet-David to talk about what entrepreneurs could do during the coronavirus outbreak and what cash savings can do during this hard time. Patrick advises creating more content and making more phone calls to increase your sales. He also gives a no BS take on how China handled (or mishandled) the coronavirus outbreak. Tune in to learn more. KEY TAKEAWAYS The COVID-19, or coronavirus, won’t go away unless we find a solution. And that is what’s scary; we still haven’t found the vaccine yet. According to Patrick, it will help if scientists and entrepreneurs team up together to solve this global pandemic. Each country has a unique approach on how to contain the virus. This vitally depends on their healthcare system. If their hospitals cannot accommodate the projected number of cases, then it’s best to be strict with how the lockdown or quarantine will be. With these kinds of problems, it’s the data you should always trust. The Chinese government have kept the news about Wuhan coronavirus from international health agencies and other countries. China knew what the virus could do. It wasn’t until it started to spread to its other cities that people were informed. Opposing opinions are needed and should not be shut down. This proves that people think critically, and that they don’t just follow orders from the authorities. If China listened to the coronavirus whistle-blower from the start, this outbreak could’ve been reduced. Businesses need to keep some cash. This is to ensure you are always ready when things don’t go as planned (i.e. the global pandemic effect). The 2008 recession has taught Jay so much. He always aims to keep 50% of net worth (or savings) in cash. How will your business survive this outbreak? Patrick’s advice: Think of what’s the most important thing today? Examples are learning how to make sales through phone calls and online, to communication through web apps and creating higher quality content. BEST MOMENTS “The longer people live, the lower the mathematical cost is. You shouldn’t be paying more for your insurance than you did 20 years ago.” “I don’t trust China on any data they give since they don’t have any free press, any free speech.” “Everyone wants to be called an entrepreneur but some people just need not to be entrepreneurs.” “Be patient. Everyone’s going to find the leaks to everyone elses philosophies.” VALUABLE RESOURCES Listen to the Patrick Bet-David episode of The Business Mentor Podcast on Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/031-interview-entrepreneur-patrick-bet-david-founder/id1370793386?i=1000424401063 Read the article about the Wuhan coronavirus whistleblower doctor on BBC (https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-51403795).

He wants to continue helping you guys on your business journey, even in these hard times! The Covid-19 pandemic poses an enormous threat to the UK market, and it will affect your business. Jay gives tips today on how he survived the 2008 recession. You could apply these tips too if this outbreak leads to a recession. Time to listen in. KEY TAKEAWAYS Jay used to do paper runs until his bike got stolen. So, when this happened, he had to find another way to earn income.  At 23, Jay was already starting his own business. He’s created a team of his own. We should also note that it was very easy for them to level up since everyone on the team had the same vision. But when the recession in 2008 happened, and as a first-timer in this kind of situation, Jay had a tough time to weather through. He had to lay-off some of his trusted team members and had to give up many possessions. Having a mentor helped Jay save his business. His mentor was experienced with recession and knew what viable solutions could help Jay. He then realised that he can also help other entrepreneurs, even the aspiring ones. This is also the principal reason Jay started the podcast. BEST MOMENTS “That really ceded me about business—how to create my own income.” “During recession, the job market goes first.” “Not having the ability, not having the knowledge, or not having the support network was something I really struggled with.” 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.

 Surviving Covid-19: Accountant Simon Misiewicz, Answers Your Questions on Business, Self Employment & Property. | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2151

Jay is with Simon Misiewicz founder of Optimise Accountants, he is a tax specialist with extensive experience and expertise and is answering the questions everyone wants to know the answers to, whether they are an employer, self-employed or an investor. They discuss the rapidly changing financial landscape and the moves the government are making to support businesses whether you are an employer or self-employed. Uncertainty is the new norm and this episode has practical advice and clear information that is of value to any business, in this very different time that we all find ourselves in, listen in and learn more.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Furloughed employees The government is having to build a system to be able to pay employers so employers are going to need to cover furloughed employee salaries for March, April and early May prior to the Government being in a position to pay-out. Loans The British Business Bank is offering a loan and there is a holiday payment of 12 months available but you need to consider the interest that you will be paying later on. These loans will still take 2-3 months to process and your own bank or loan provider may be able to offer a loan that is cheaper and quicker than what’s on offer from the Government. If you need the money immediately start talking to your bank about what they can do to help now. VAT If someone was about to make a VAT payment then the payment does not currently have to be made, potentially providing a cash injection for your business. If your payments are via direct debit make sure you cancel it as it will take approximately 6 weeks for the money to be returned to your account. Self-employed, how will it work? One of the roles of your accountant or tax advisor is to keep your profits as low as possible so that your tax is as low as possible so it will be difficult to work out an approach or system that will be fair for everyone. Whatever is decided there will be some people who will lose. Are you self-employed if you are an investor? The government definition of self-employed is someone who is actively doing something to provide a service or sell a product. Property investment is passive, you get the money regardless of what you do, the government will not be providing assistance to investors. You need to have a contingency plan and also understand there are opportunities that you need to be prepared and ready to take action on. Everyone is in the same situation don’t be proud or bury your head in the sand communicate with others and ask for help if you need it.   BEST MOMENTS ‘Whatever they bring in some people will like it and some people will loathe it, it’s a very difficult situation and any solution will be complicated’ ‘It has to be a fair and equitable number that is paid to most people’ ‘There are on online businesses that will not be affected’   VALUABLE RESOURCES Recruitment Boss http://Jay@jay-dhillon.com Optimise Accountants website Optimise Accountants YouTube   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.

 Losing 400 Staff, James Sinclair & Jay Talk Corona Virus | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2143

‘Having a plan is vital because what you do in the second or third month of this unprecedented  situation with COVID 19 is what’s going to be really important for the future’   Jay is in conversation with James Sinclair, Founder and CEO of the Partyman Group of companies. James has built a business group that encompasses leisure, childcare, outdoor attractions and a training business so his business knowledge is diverse and extensive. In this episode, Jay and James discuss the impact of COVID 19 on business and share the ways entrepreneurs with the right mindset can work through the global business ‘pause’ and be prepared to press ‘play’ and move forward in a position of strength when the global economy resumes. This is a great episode with lots of valuable content from entrepreneurs who know what it’s like and what to do to carry on moving forward, listen in and learn more.   KEY TAKEAWAYS In these challenging times, the key for businesses is to act with speed. I didn’t panic I planned and we planned fast and implemented fast. I’m confident that when the play button is pressed and we start again we will be one of the strongest businesses in our sector in the UK. Every day we are in this pause phase the global and UK economy is changing. The saying cash is king has never been more important, it is vital to always have cash reserves -you have to prepare and plan so that you are ready whatever happens. If you are someone who can make stuff happen you should make stuff happen for others. It’s important not to be distracted from your business and the trajectory you have set, this is the time to be focused, now everyone has the opportunity to do what’s important but not urgent in their business. We will go into recession but this is an opportunity - more millionaires are made in times of recession than at any other time. There will be people who will lose momentum in the 3 vital ‘E’s’ of business -  effort, energy and enthusiasm but those who have the stamina and tenacity and the 3 ‘E’s will be the ones who will succeed. You need to make sure you don’t forget the basics of business. As soon as the play button is pushed you’ve got to be ready to go.   BEST MOMENTS ‘Once you get started the momentum kicks in’ ‘Last night I started writing my new book ‘ The Dream Team’ everyone can get on with something’ ‘We need to remember money is a digital asset and a method of control’   VALUABLE RESOURCES Recruitment Boss http://Jay@jay-dhillon.com James Sinclair website     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.
