 How to Effectively Post on Social Media to Grow Your Business and Brand | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 402

In this episode of The Business Mentor Podcast Jay provides tips on how to post on social media effectively and what is important to remember when posting on different platforms. Listen to this episode to find out more! KEY TAKEAWAYS The quality of your content matters more than the quantity of your posts on social media. Social media’s allowed people to market their products and services for free and widely. But because it’s free, it allows people to post at any time which can cause people to post irrelevant content. Although it’s important to be consistent, posting content that has no value in it, is not likely to get much engagement. If you’re thinking about getting into social media then think about what you’re posting carefully before posting, choose quality over quantity. BEST MOMENTS ‘Quality over quantity” “1 or 2 posts a week rather than 4 a day” “Think about what you’re posting” VALUABLE RESOURCES Recruitment Boss Jay@businessmentorpodcast.com 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 to 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.

 Ask Jay Anything! Is Facebook & Instagram The Best Platform For Social Growth | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 325

Welcome back to the Business Mentor Podcast! In todays episode, Jay takes a listener question from Anton. Anton is starting a new journey teaching football within his local community. Anton wants to know “I just want your advice in terms of advertising. Is Instagram and facebook the best way of doing that OR are there better platforms?”   Simply put, Jay says Instagram and Facebook are the go-to platforms of choice. Start with Facebook: Create a page and/or group for your brand/company and start populating it with content. You want to coral your audience and community into places you can interact and share with easily. Show activity, results and push interaction with followers to encourage better reach and exposure. Do the same with other platforms, including Instagram. Create a page/profile and start creating content for others to like, share and interact with. Jay strongly suggests you start organically. Test and observe your existing engagement and growth to get a much better idea of which platform (and paid-for choice) could yield the best results.   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.

 Going Into Debt is NOT Cool; Why You Shouldn't Take a Loan to Start a Business | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 507

In this episode Jay explains whether starting up a business with debt or by taking out a loan is a good idea. There are a lot of stories where successful entrepreneurs have said they’ve been in tonnes of debt and got themselves out of it because of their business and the debt’s helped them get to where they are. Jay explains why you shouldn’t listen to them and expresses his views on this subject… KEY TAKEAWAYS There are lots and lots of stories where you hear people have been in tonnes of debt and now have a successful business and a lot of the time they lead you down a path where you may think you need to be in debt to start. Do not take a loan or credit to start a business because 99% of these people who take out loans to start a business fail. A good type of debt would be when you’re using the loan to buy an asset that brings in money. An example of this is property. The best way to start up is to save the money yourself and know that you’ve worked hard for tat money rather than taking out a loan. If you don’t have any money, then get your first client before starting your business, then scale up from there. Start slowly then build slowly and when you get the cash flow start investing. You can save money up by selling things on Ebay or online. You can work really hard part time to get enough money to be able to save. BEST MOMENTS ‘Having a start up business is hard but having a start us business and debt is even harder.’ ‘You can raise money through joint ventures’ ‘If you really believe in your product or service then it should sell that straight away’ ‘Getting into debt is not cool, especially if you’re buying the wrong things’ VALUABLE RESOURCES Recruitment Boss Jay@businessmentorpodcast.com 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.

 Do You NEED an Office? Where Are You Most Productive? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 627

Does an entrepreneur really need an office? Or would it be okay to work remotely from home?  The choice depends on your productivity and current circumstances. If budget seems tight, then it’s best to work remotely at the beginning but then, it will require a certain discipline not to get distracted and not to slack off. That’s why Jay still suggests getting an office as soon as everything becomes stable.  Let Jay help you today in this episode of The Business Mentor Podcast on deciding where your workplace should be and more. Start tuning in.  KEY TAKEAWAYS  Understand the present circumstances. Your working condition and working environment might be suitable only for the office setting. If you’ve got a tight budget or doesn’t see expanding soon, then consider working remotely to save up and increase the cash flow.  Some entrepreneurs have a difficult time being productive at their own homes, so as much possible, they choose to separate the work from home by getting an office.  Jay suggests that when the time is right—when you already got the budget—it’s time to get your own office.   Look for service buildings in your area.  When signing a lease, make sure you got a get-out clause.  Be consistent with your business hours.  Get whiteboards where you can write your KPIs.  BEST MOMENTS  “Challenge yourself. What’s your bigger vision?”  “Consistency always win over talent or anything else.”   VALUABLE RESOURCES  Recruitment Boss   Jay@businessmentorpodcast.com   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.

 How to be Proactive in Business During Brexit Uncertainty | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 758

In this episode of the Business Mentor podcast Jay discusses his thought on Brexit and how it’s going to affect business. He also gives some tips and advice on how to prepare for big changes that will affect business such as Brexit. KEY TAKEAWAYS 3 years ago I didn’t believe that people would vote Brexit. Think long term about your business decisions and think about your businesses strategy before you make any decisions. The property market will pick back up again so think long term and you never know what’s going to happen so look at your own strategy and where you are then make decisions based on what your circumstances are. Look at the opportunity that Brexit is going to bring rather than the negatives. Look at what other investors are doing especially people like Warren Buffet. Watch what your mentors are and aren’t doing and replicate them. There are so many amazing platforms now that are free where you can get information out there easily. Don’t wait for things to happen such as waiting for Brexit because you don’t actually know how long it’s going to take to affect things. Brexit’s been happening for 3 years now, imagine all of that growth you have missed out in the past 3 years because of holding back because of Brexit. Have a buffer so when the bad times do some you wont completely sink. Start saving when your money’s good. BEST MOMENTS ‘You can’t run around with the panic of things that you can’t control.’ ‘What’s you long term strategy?’ ‘As long as you’re growing long term, compound growth will get you there.’ ‘Generally speaking, the opportunity’s there for the taking’ ‘Business changes all of the time and you and your business will have to adapt.’ ‘Winners will be the one’s who are prepared and always looking for the opportunity.’ VALUABLE RESOURCES https://www.jay-dhillon.com The Business Mentor Podcast 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.

 Which is The Best Business Model to Build? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 675

Jay discusses the business model that he believes is generally the best at the moment and why. One of the main reason for having a reoccurring business model is because it makes your business more attractive to investors or people who may want to buy your business. You could introduce this model to your current model too without having to start over. Listen to this episode to find out more!  KEY TAKEAWAYS  The most lucrative models on the market are reoccurring. E.g. Netflix. This is much like a subscription based model where their revenue is monthly. These often charge less money however are generating monthly revenue.  Having a reoccurring business model made the business a lot more attractive to buyers than having a model where our revenue came from constant of off deals.  The other models do work and can work really well but over all in general the best model, I would say, is the reoccurring.  Check out the 30-day business challenge that I did with Luca Gallone where we set up a reoccurring business model using a white label piece of software.    What most people do is have a bit of both where there is a fixed cost as well as a reoccurring cost.   In your business now is there a subscription or monthly charge that you can build in?   BEST MOMENTS  ‘Reoccurring type of business is more appealing to an investor or someone who wants to buy your business.’   ‘Always be interested in reoccurring business models’  ‘Test the market itself’  ‘When you have low fees people are more likely to come back’  VALUABLE RESOURCES  https://www.jay-dhillon.com  The Business Mentor Podcast  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.

 The Importance of Your Story - Jay live from the Entrepreneurs Event - Pride Park Stadium | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1947

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.   KEY TAKEAWAYS 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.   BEST MOMENTS ’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’ VALUABLE RESOURCES https://www.jay-dhillon.com The Business Mentor Podcast   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.

 Top Tips to make your new business a success… | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 974

Time and time again there are people who don’t make the effort to begin with and don’t do their due diligence before jumping into the deep end when starting a business. They usually end up wasting a lot of time and money, here are tips on how to avoid this issue… KEY TAKEAWAYS If you think of this amazing idea, ensure what you’re thinking is really what the customer will like or want a lot too. Have an idea where you know there are clients and customers that will definitely buy your products or services. You can do this by ensuring you’ve done all your market research. Work within the industry first or work alongside someone who has loads of experience in that market before you take the jump with your own idea. If you’re looking to open up a hairdressing salon and don’t have any experience, then you should rent per chair so you don’t have to hire any people yourself. Run some ads in the area on social media to see how high the demand is first. Don’t sign a lease for more than 1 year when starting off. Once you’ve got an idea, stress test it to check how much money you can make and look at examples of other people within your industry in your area. You could mystery shop which will also help you. Go to networking events and talk to people within the industry, get yourself into groups on social media and stay well connected with lots of people within your industry. Have them all give feedback on your ideas and gain other ideas or improvements for your idea. Be part of a mastermind or reach out to your mentor to see what they think. BEST MOMENTS ‘We get really excited and jump straight in but the failure rate is massive.’ ‘Do your market research’ ‘You may think it’s a really good idea but how much demand is there for it?’ ‘If you do your research properly, the chance of success is so much higher.’ ‘Before you spend a penny, check the demand out, make sure the demand’s there.’ ‘Test the marketing using ads.’ VALUABLE RESOURCES The Business Mentor Podcast 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.

 Don't Use Social Media& Fake News as a Metric | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 441

Jay’s finding that lots of people are asking him similar questions, on of which is how to use social media. In this episode of The Business Mentor podcast Jay answers this popular question and expresses the importance of focusing on yourself and your journey rather than those of other peoples.  KEY TAKEAWAYS  Social media is a great platform but don’t believe everything you see. People on there want engagement and attention.  I look to inspire other people on social media.  Don’t look at social media as an indication of your performance because people often fake how their life really is on there. They don’t tell you about their problems and issues they may be having.  Don’t look at social media and think because you don’t have the same success as someone on there, you’re failing.  Look at where you are now and think about what you can change right now for yourself to get to where you want to be. Break down the steps and make little changes daily until you get there.  Look at your own journey not other peoples because often you don’t know what’s actually happening in someone else’s life outside of their social media.  BEST MOMENTS  ‘Use social media as a motivation.’  ‘Don’t use social media as an indicator of how well people are doing.’  ‘Make sure you do your diligence.’   ‘Don’t compare yourself to others on social media.’  ‘Put in the work. Avoid the mistakes.’  VALUABLE RESOURCES  The Business Mentor Podcast  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.

 Don't Make my Mistake! Here is How to Start Your Personal Brand NOW! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1243

In this episode of The Business Mentor, Jay explains why it is important in today’s world to start building your personal brand as soon as possible to open up new opportunities in your future (such as brand deals). Jay shares the simple initial steps you can take to set the foundations for you to build your personal brand on, the rest is your story to share with the world about yourself. KEY TAKEAWAYS With today’s technology, company directors and CEO’s can be looked up and researched on Google, it is important for people to have trust in a company owner and understand what the person who runs the company is all about. Document your story, any achievements, promotions, travels, meeting of icons etc. Build your story, build a timeline of the events in your life that have led you to where you are in life now. Make sure you get your content out there for others so they can understand where you’ve been, what you have done in life and what you’re all about. Begin by making sure every social media platform has your name on them, even if your name has been taken, try get as near to it as possible, add ‘UK’ or an underscore to the end of your handle. Once you have it, you own it forever. Even the social media platforms that don’t have much traffic, get your name onto them early as you don’t know if it will explode in the future! It’s easier to leave an account inactive than to claim a username from someone else. Don’t worry about starting off small, you need to start somewhere, just keep posting content, share your journey with the world. There’s no rush to push your story out there, grow your audience organically. BEST MOMENTS ‘A personal brand will stay with you forever’ ‘Document your journey’ ‘Be authentic to your story’ ‘For me this is a marathon, not a sprint’ ‘Everyday if you keep churning at it, things will change’ ‘You got to be yourself. It is really important to be yourself. You can’t fake it all the time. Personal branding is about you.’   VALUABLE RESOURCES The Business Mentor Podcast 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.

 A Return Engagement With Rob Moore – Here To Answer Your Questions! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2133

Jay is joined by author, speaker, world record holder, entrepreneur and investor Rob Moore, back for a return engagement for the Business Mentor Podcast, in what is being billed as his most intimate interview ever!  Rob is here to answer your questions, and the response has been phenomenal. Listen as he discusses parenting, networking, podcasting, politics and what makes a good interview... KEY TAKEAWAYS There isn’t much Rob regrets, but he does mourn the fact that he didn’t take his entrepreneurial chances a little earlier in life. There were chances that he could have taken, but didn’t. But Rob’s view on his past is that it’s always best to focus on the now, and on the future. As he puts it, “I don’t look back, I look forward” The most important thing, and the most rewarding, is to help others achieve their best. Rob’s success is incredible, but the real pleasure comes from knowing that he helps, influences and benefits others who are on the way up. When it comes to podcast guests for his show, Rob speaks to people that he thinks his audience will find interesting. The guest may not always be someone Rob likes or shares a point of view with, but the challenge is something he relishes. The qualities he generally looks for in a guest are: Are they controversial? Will the guest help the show to reach a new demographic? Is the guest being requested by the audience? Rob doesn’t subscribe to the current trend for putting people down in public, especially those who are clearly more successful than others. They have got to where they are through clever marketing and by being the best in their field, no matter what their politics or beliefs are. It’s always better to concentrate on the things in life we can control. That should always be the focus for your time, energy, enthusiasm and work. Rob’s main ambition in life is to help as many people on the planet get better financial education and to start and scale their businesses, especially young and under-privileged entrepreneurs.  The best way to reach your customer base is by any means possible. It’s always better to be on every social media channel, use every type of contact available, especially those your competition aren’t using. Rob uses handwritten letters to reach people and has seen huge success. Plus, using these methods allows for new ways to be disruptive. BEST MOMENTS 'We all have challenges, we all have fallouts. That’s just part of business’ ‘I don’t look back, I look forward’ ’The success of others is really the measure of your own success’ ‘I try to have a multidimensional thought process when it comes to my guests’ ‘I like to think about what I can control, not what I can’t’ ‘When my time is up I want to have helped millions create a better life with their finances and business’ ‘Being disruptive means never standing still' VALUABLE RESOURCES Rob Moore - Website The Disruptive Entrepreneur The Business Mentor Podcast ABOUT THE GUEST Rob Moore is a triple best- selling Property Author, public speaker, entrepreneur, and multi-million- pound Property Investor.   He co- founded the UK’s biggest property education company Progressive Property in 2006 with Mark Homer and has since helped over 100,000 entrepreneurs towards achieving the same, including consulting for many established multi-millionaires and keynoting at some of the UK’s most important business events.   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.

 Becoming A Key Person of Influence; With Co-founder of Dent Global Daniel Priestley | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2039

They can easily sell tickets in a couple of hours and fill an event. They don’t need to over-hype the products and services they offer. And, last, they don’t prioritise increasing their wealth-they prioritise giving the most value to others.  These are what a key person of influence do among other stuff.  In this episode of The Business Mentor Podcast, Jay interviews Daniel Priestley, the Co-founder of Dent Global and the author of the best-selling book Key Person of Influence, to talk about how you could be one of them. Discover how you can move up the ladder and be one of the top business owners while being genuine on bringing value. Learn also about the 3 aspects of the entrepreneurial journey, the 2 secrets to success, the best way to learn in starting a business, and many more today.  KEY TAKEAWAYS  As early as 19 years old, he was learning about sales, making 'copy', networking, etc. while working for his mentor. Daniel was already honing his skills, that would eventually help him start a fast-growing company which he launched when he was 21. And in just four years, he and his team already hit the million mark in sales.  Learn how to turn marketing and sales into assets. Scaling up your business and branching out internationally went faster than expected for Daniel when he started doing it.  In a certain industry, the top 5% earners are the key people of influence. These people who make all the money are the ones who also get most of the opportunities. When you position yourself as the key person of influence in your niche, you’ll always be the go-to person.  There are two secrets to success: first is to actively do what you do and second, leverage value in what you do.  There are three aspects that an entrepreneur has to go through, namely: finding value, becoming influential, and developing assets.  Trial and error won’t be the best way in starting a business. You’ll be spending years to figure out things and this usually results in a lot of failures. The best way is to seek help and learn from the experts. Get a mentor, attend classes or networking events, and consume a lot of the resources (e.g. podcasts, books, webinars, etc.)  BEST MOMENTS  “If you’re very good at sales and marketing and you got the machine, you can take anything to this and that.”  “When you put something in a book, it basically allows you to relax about an idea.

 The Most Important Asset to Use When Starting a Business | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 667

‘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. KEY TAKEAWAYS 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. BEST MOMENTS “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” 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.

 Billionaire Grant Cardone Talks to Jay About Property, Recession, Religion, Money, & Family! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2614

The ladder to success maybe isn’t what you expect. It might be very steep, a bit wobbly, and too long. So, in this episode of The Business Mentor Podcast, Jay interviews Grant Cardone, a multimillionaire entrepreneur and the best-selling author of The 10X Rule. Learn from him today some proven tips on how you can also be not just a millionaire, but a multi-billionaire entrepreneur. There’s no harm in thinking big, as long as when you build your legacy, you also contribute value to your society.  Discover also why your success solely depends on you, why financial responsibility as early as now is needed for individuals and families alike, and what habits do successful entrepreneurs have. Jay and Grant dive deep on these and more, so tune in. KEY TAKEAWAYS Grant is a spiritual person. He’s aware of the oneness and the balance of energy needed within him and his surroundings. He’s able to quiet the noise and pass through any disorientation. Success is mostly determined by the individual’s personality, values, and behaviour. Don’t ask advice from millionaires, observe what the billionaires do. Most likely, millionaires want to conserve and avoid taking much risk. Dream big. Most people who put a limit on what they can reach only a dream for themselves. When wealth overflows, it’s best to share it to others. Not only have you contributed value to them, but you also have built your legacy. Financial responsibility starts with understanding where you stand in your financial status. Are you able to stand still if a big recession hits the market? Plan and start growing your finances. When we invest money, we only invest in two things: Low-cost providers of everything and be the best-known brand Invest on something that cannot be disrupted If you have a habit of looking for inspiration from successful entrepreneurs, tycoons, or thought leaders, only choose one person to follow. Merging the ideas from different people is difficult to do and often, it results to confusion. BEST MOMENTS “I am comfortable in being wrong and willing to change my mind and go do something that gets me on the path that I need to be on.” “There are two kinds of successes: the one is what the public sees and the other as the person’s experience.” “A guy that makes 5 million is a selfish individual… All you’re thinking about is your experiences.” “Quit paying attention to the headlines; pay attention to your financial statement.” “Success is better if you want to share it with.” “Greatness will be rewarded VALUABLE RESOURCES How To Become A Millionaire Now by Grant Cardone The Millionaire Next Door: The Surprising Secrets of America’s Wealthy by Thomas J.
