Harvey Mackay on the Mackay MBA

I had the supreme pleasure of sitting down with one of the world’s foremost experts on sales and leadership, Harvey Mackay. We talked about his new book, The Mackay MBA of Selling in the Real World (amazon affiliate link), which took us all over the place. This interview, which I’d intended to last about six minutes, was just too fun to keep short. Harvey Mackay is a master at making you feel important and an expert in all the things he talks about. I was very fortunate to get the chance to be his first ever Skype video interview, and because of that, we both just cut loose a bit. Please enjoy this interview, as it speaks to a lot of interesting points about sales, about women’s shifting dominance in the business world, and much much more:

    Chris… you are such a great listener!  Very respectful, and mindful.  I learned as much from watching you as I did from Harvey.  Different, but still important.  Thanks for the lessonS.

    Harvey’s books and materials have all helped me build a 25 year old nationally recognized (and successful) law firm.  “Swim with the Sharks” hit home time after time.  I’ll be getting this new book pronto!!!  And no Harvey- you’re not an old geezer :-)

    Chris- Thanks so much for posting this interview.  Outstanding!

    WHEN A PERSON WITH MONEY AND A PERSON WITH EXPERIENCE COME TOGETHER, THE PERSON WITH EXPERIENCE GETS THE MONEY AND THE WHO GIVES THE MONEY GETS EXPERIENCE….. So, this explains the wild success of Kettle corn, what else might it explain?

    Experience takes many forms, but it’s about what form experience takes that matters relative to time, space and perception, NO?

    Many people assume that a significant gap in their employment
    history will raise a red flag in their application. While the
