This is an excerpt from an interview with Harvey Mackay about his new book, "Use Your Head to Get Your Foot in the Door: Job Search Secrets No One Else Will Tell You."
Well, a little background. With "Swim With the Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive," I was constantly fighting and arguing with my publisher. I teach creativity, I like to think out of the box. I like to be a differentiator. So many, many years ago, "Swim With the Sharks," boom! I went in the back page, money back guarantee! I think, I’m not positive but I think I was the first one in the country, this is 22 years ago and the book is still selling with the same concepts, but five million copies were sold, money back guarantee on the last page.
Eighteen came back out of five million copies sold, seven of them were my best friends.Those seven friends, well, they’re still my friends, but – so I took that concept again in getting a job and why did I say that? Well, I did volunteer – 25% of my life is volunteerism, started working with people of all ages, 18 to 65 to 75 years of age, helping them get jobs. What do you want to do with your life? And so therefore, put the money back guarantee in there because I’ve had hundreds and hundreds, maybe close to 500 people walk though my front door that I’ve been able to help in 40 plus years and it works! They got the jobs, their dreams came true and so I feel very confident that I’m not going to get too many money requests back maybe other than those seven friends.
I’ve seen it for 40 years with many, many hundreds of people and so again, extremely confident this will really make a huge, huge probability in their lives, not only do they get the job, I have to keep reminding you, but their entire careers.
