"Harry – get a piece of the action!" could you please tell me what does it mean?

Hi amit_ck,

Johnny is telling Harry that he should consider working in venture capital too. 'the action' is the work in venture capital, and 'to get a piece of the action' means to work in that field. Johnny thinks this work is exciting and also lucrative.

Sir, could you please give me some simply example of it then I will be easily understand. thank you

Hi amit_ck,

It means 'get involved and profit from it' or even just 'get involved'. I'm afraid I don't know how to say it more simply than that.

When Harry says good bye to Johnny, I hear: "Yeah, cheers, see you soon".
However in the transcript the sentence writing is: "Yeah, cheers, see you mate".
Which is correct sentence?

Hello Santiago,

Thank you for highlighting this for us. There is a mistake in the transcript. The correct sentence should be:

Harry:  Yeah, yeah, cheers mate, see you soon.


I have edited the transcript on the page.

Thanks again,
