Pushing the Envelope
IN THIS SUMMARY
Those who push the envelope are looking to maximize their advantage by finding the edge or angle. And, according to Harvey Mackay, that edge, or window of opportunity, is always there. In Pushing the Envelope, Mackay shares his know-how, wit, and commonsense, dispensing a plethora of lessons on life and work distilled from his 40 years in business. Interweaving experiences from historical figures and personalities from every walk of life with anecdotes from his own phenomenally successful career, Mackay presents a litany of practical advice on everything from making resolutions to learning, negotiating, getting a raise, making a sell, and even packing for a business trip. It is advice that anyone can use, whether they are running the company or running the reception desk.
