"Harvey Mackay has had more impact on me than any other human being in business or in my personal life...

...and I can say that because he’s impacted my business and personal life. Harvey Mackay’s training is very tactical, practical. He teaches you how to do the step by step. It’s not theory, it’s knee skinning, bloody nose, crawling in the streets, “street smarts,” and what I’ve learned from him, and probably the most important tactic I learned is, fight like hell to be #2, it’s too hard to be #1, but be #2 wherever you can with prospects because #1 may not pull through, #1 may go away, #1 may disappoint, #1 may die, and then eventually you’ll become #1 after that."

"From the very first moment we sat down for breakfast I knew that he was a person I would want to spend a lot of time with.

Not only had he been prolific at writing, but just the sheer wisdom of spending time with him, getting lessons he had learned over seven or eight decades was profound. It's very difficult to reduce down to a few seconds what I've learned from him but I will say, of all the people I've been mentored by in my life, he is probably the single most impactful just because he has constant staying power, endless energy, so much positivity, and wisdom he's gained from running his own businesses from writing, from existing, and a lot of different competitive environments, and a just simply works really hard."

"When you talk about Harvey Mackay's training materials, they're second to none. 

I thought I hit the mother load, really getting to a high level of success, until I got Harvey Mackay's training materials and realized that I was nowhere near even half way there. So many things I hadn't really thought about. I don't think the hard thing in life is reaching your goals, really the hard thing is resetting them once you've reached them, and I think Harvey's materials really help you get there. They make you realize that there is so much more there, there is so much more to learn and so much more to do. He makes it really easy to do it. If you're on your road to mediocracy, take your time, don't get the Harvey Mackay materials, don't join the Academy. But, if you want to be extraordinary, if you want to reset your goals, if you want to do something great, sign up now."

"The things I learned from Harvey have helped me in television, radio, writing books, speaking, because he's excellent. He's as good as they come. 

We talk about networking or meeting people, and growing, just the number of people around you that can help you be successful. I love one of his books, "Dig Your Well Before You're Thirsty," and a lot of those things I apply to my life. Get to know people, be willing to give, share and you do receive in return. The principles behind how he conducts his life in that respect have been great for me. With the energy and the verve and the positive approach that he has for life, and for people, and knowledge, education, how he can condense years and years of knowledge and experience into a short period of time, it's invaluable for anyone having the opportunity to sit with Harvey Mackay."
