Fortune called Harvey Mackay "Mr. Make Things Happen." As a successful author, businessman, speaker, and nationally syndicated columnist, his energy and enthusiasm are infectious. Two of his books, Swim With The Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive and Beware the Naked Man Who Offers You His Shirt, went to #1 on the New York Times Bestseller List. Both books are also among the top 15 inspirational business books of all time, according to the New York Times.

At age 77, Mackay hasn't lost any of his enthusiasm, and his new audiobook is as passionate and optimistic as his classic bestsellers. He wants to help everyone from new college grads to laid-off fifty somethings.

The average person will have at least 3 to 5 career changes and 12 to 14 different jobs before the age of 38. In the age of downsizing and outsourcing, you can never be sure that your job is safe—or will be safe in a couple of years.

The result? People are staring to spend their entire lives in a perpetual job search—and they need the attitude and skills to pull it off. Especially the skills for relentless and effective networking, coupled with a passion for lifetime learning.

According to Mackay, too many people get a defeatist attitude about finding a great job. They get stuck in a rut at a job they hate. Or, if they're unemployed, they grab the first thing offered to them.
