The person behind Genie-us is Dizzy Tailor real name Dhiren. Being born to the now president of the Hindu forum of Great Britain has had its pros and cons. I was brought up by a community leader, a pillar of society somebody everybody looked up to. This pressure of being the president’s son and having a reputation to live up to certainly made it difficult for me to misbehaive. Especially as someone would see and report it to my father.
Growing up I was influenced by Hip Hop and the music was where I got ideas. This was evident in my appearance and language which was not really approved by my father. My circle of friends also had a similar passion for hip hop. Within this inquistive stage of growing up in hip hop an experimental part of our group discovered marajuana, weed, or hash. This became part of the culture of our crew, something my father definitely was not going to approve of. My father had now become one of the first Indians to become a magistrate in our town which added pressure to my now recreational habit. This grew from an occasional smoke to an every day routine and being the main man within my circle I quickly got a reputation for having access to good quality gear. This escalated to the point that my circle of friends varied from my humble guys I had grown up to the big time dealers that were twice my age. Amongst a big deal that went on lots of the guys got arrested, which is where my father gave me a warning. He told me that he was advised at a drug awareness meeting held to combat drug crime within the community that I was one of the people they have been watching. Shortly after this warning I left my home town and moved to London. This is where I pursued a career in hairdressing.
My goal was to become a recognised name in hairdressing, having celebrity clients. Within 5 years I had become a house hold name in west London, which then lead to me buying my salon. This salon was everything I had imagined and more. My character was fully displayed in the salon in every detail from the chrome coffe machine to the cow skin wash basins. My salon became a fashionable place to be as well an excellent establishment for you hair requirements. Its social credibility grew and attracted well know djs amongst other celebrities. This was my goal when I started hairdressing and it had now been 10 years. I had achvieved, I had got to the top of the mountain, and my question now, was whats next?
This question left me open to suggestion and something inside said “Go to china….” I took this idea and told my parents, friends and clients that I am retiring and moving to china. This meant selling the shop. It coincided with an operation that meant I couldn’t work for 2 months. Perfect as there was a potential buyer before my operation and after recovering I could move to china. This I dea was not blessed or entertained by the family, riends or clients. Nobody but me wanted me to go.
It was after the op that a friend suggested I come to a 4 day seminar by Anthony Robbins. This gave me a whole new insight to my future. I know wanted to do what Anthony Robbins does, get up and speak to thousands of people. My philosophy on life allowed me to achieve anything which now can be related a little to the secret and law of attraction. This had allowed believing it was possible to do anything. Especially as a hairdresser I used to talk and cut; now I would only have to talk. This is where I entered the world of personal development. I random encounter with an individual called Kalpesh Patel gave me the platform and foundation for my future career. He was and had been a motivational speaker for years. His passion and commitment to this, was somewhat inspiring. He then became a mentor and brother over the next 4 years. The journey we embarked on allowed me to fulfill the every dream, from going to a Ferrari showroom and driving my dream car, to travelling the world drinking champayne in some of the world exclusive clubs. I have got to a point where every dream set out by myself to the age of 31 had been achieved. The pusuit of this career has brought to South Africa where I have been for the last 2.5 years. I have developed my self through challenges and seminars which has put me in a place where I am confident enough to have put together my own material which is deleivered in a manner which is unique to me. All of this was made possible by an involvement with a company which encompasses all of my vision and values. This company is called Success University. My involvement as a student and also finding content for South Africa gave me the perfect excuse to ring people like Raymond Ackerman and other leading figures. This was really the catalyst in my interview career and product development. By default of searching for leaders I took the intiative to interview them to find out how they became who they are. I then spoke about my idea to a lady from a radio station who then turned to say that I should turn this into a talk show, which is what lead to the creation of my talk show which lead to Genie-us productions which is the hub of what I do. Within this hub we produce TV, DVD, audio and other media facilities. It has also allowed me to pursue a career now in tv, I am currently putting a talk show together. I have a seminar where I teach and show “the Practice of speed Reading” something that took me from reading 4 books in 15 years to 7 books in 7 weeks. Also I have a seminar called “finding your genie-us” both semainars are 90mins and have a massive emphasis on transformation through words. As well as this I am putting together an audio series which is a collection of interview with leaders in specialist areas ie relationships, personal effectiveness, etc…giving practical advice where the listener will benefit. These interview have been put together in the style of a radio show therefore giving a different style of listening oppose to the regular motivation and inspiration material. I also have found my genie-us as a lyrical poet which I demonstrate on this series. With that in mind you can also expect an album by the end of the year. Some of the people that have infuenced and contributed to my life, my father, Osho, Anthony Robbins, Kalpesh Patel, Les Brown, Dr John Demartini to name a few and there have been many more.
