Factors such as a person’s educational background and even their environment can significantly impact their likelihood of success. Since one’s family is where one learns about and receives economic and emotional assistance, familial support is equally important in determining the likelihood, as mentioned above. Jonathan Jay is a successful dealmaker and content creator who enjoys teaching people about M&A and business acquisition skills to assist them in purchasing their first business with zero financial risk.
He started Dealmakers.co.uk and the Dealmakers Academy to facilitate people who thought buying a company was out of financial reach and help them realize that purchasing a profitable business is possible regardless of their financial situation. At 36 years old, he has built himself a fortune by counseling more than 100 business owners on acquisitions, having worked with multiple organizations in 346 different sectors. Through all of this, Jay has realized that financial success does not guarantee happiness.
It should never be all about work because, despite achieving all of his professional objectives, Jay suffered a complete mental and physical breakdown while working in his previous business and was forced to resign. He didn’t realize he had become overly involved in accomplishing his professional goals. Due to the breakdown, he finally learned the value of family and is now more focused on leading a fulfilling family life, making financial success more gratifying.
Now a proponent of quality family time, Jay believes emotional support from loved ones is one of the key factors in motivating people to achieve their goals. According to him, happy and close-knit families exist and grow in an atmosphere of love and warmth. And only a healthy and happy mind can fully utilize its mental faculties, confidently generating brilliant ideas. These emotional factors are potent precursors to exponential financial and business growth.
An essential component of a productive business is work-life balance. Jay says keeping a healthy work-life balance lowers stress and prevents burnout at work. One of the most prevalent health problems among the employed is chronic stress – physical consequences include hypertension, digestive issues, chronic aches and pains, and heart problems. He thinks chronic stress negatively impacts mental health when left ignored because it is associated with an increased risk of depression, anxiety, and insomnia.
Whether you are starting a business from scratch or planning to purchase an existing one, both have their own difficulties and challenges. One needs to nurture every step with time and attention, but it would be best if you struck a balance between your professional and personal lives. Only then would you be able to achieve optimum results because life’s financial and emotional aspects are inextricably linked. Jay believes it’s the only way to a happier and more fulfilling life.
