The best advice sometimes comes along when you least expect it.Such was the case for Harvey Weinstein, co-chairman of The Weinstein Company, co-founder of Miramax, and one of the most influential film producers and studio executives in Hollywood — credited with classics like “Pulp Fiction” and “Shakespeare in Love.”Before breaking into the film industry, Weinstein started in the music industry, independently producing and promoting rock concerts with his younger brother Bob.During a recent interview on “Real Biz With Rebecca Jarvis,” Weinstein shared how a single conversation early in his career while working with Paul McCartney helped lay the foundation for his entire film empire.“I’ll never forget, his brother-in-law and his father-in-law talking to me one day about what a publishing company is and how you own rights to publishing,” Weinstein tells ABC News Chief Business, Technology and Economics Correspondent Rebecca Jarvis. “And I just said, ‘Hmm, that same thing can apply to us?’ As we grew successful, just so that we can buy libraries, we can buy films, we can put them in a library and curate the library. So that came from Paul McCartney.”
