I was trolling through the internet – as I am wont to do – looking for useful information that I can share with all of you and…
I came across this LinkedIn site…
Wow, what took me so long to get here!
I’m a huge fan of Harvey Mackay.Â I first read one of this books, “Beware the Naked Man Who Offers You His ShirtÂ “, back in the early 90’s and been “sold” on his wisdom since.Â I’ve read all of his books since.
I think one of best books I have ever read was, “Pushing The Envelope All The Way To The Top “.Â When I took over as ceo of a small import company; I used a lot of what I learned in that book to built that company from the ground up.Â It was fun.Â I also remember writing a lengthy email thanking him for his wisdom and the influence his books had on me.Â I was stunned when I received a reply from him.Â An inspiration leader, as busy as he is (no fluff here), taking the time to write me – wow!
By the way, when I read that first book, I had dropped to a very low point in my career.Â I had “left,” or “was asked to leave” a good position with aÂ strong companyÂ – was on top of the world – and took a fairly low paying job just to keep the lights on.Â I was depressed and meandering around without a clue.Â I started reading books like Dr. Covey’s 7 Habits and Og Mandino as a way to recover my balance.Â
In process I picked up that Harvey Mackay’s book.Â Something about the way he wrote, just felt like he wasÂ talking directly to me.Â The words and advice he wrote, and writes, just resonated with me.Â
Anyway, he had a big influence on my climbing back out of that hole I was in.Â And if you are in a hole, he will get you out.Â Â I know it.
When it comes to sales, networking, business sense, operations – life in general – there can be no better “mentor” than Harvey Mackey.Â Even if he doesn’t know that he’s mentoring you.Â But he is!
So, go click on that link now and be a part of that dynamic group.
