Is “how are things going” mean “How are you” or “How’s everything”? When I can use this phrase?

Hello amit_ck

Yes, that's right: 'how are things going?' is an informal way of asking someone how they are. It's is very commonly used in informal situations.

I didn't understand some lines when Johnny said(And I’m here to make the most of it!)
what Fadi said( I can’t keep track ) i know the meaning of keep and track individually

very nice conversation, I loved the differences in accent .
I want to ask how can I remember the names ? because it is difficult for me to remember names and that makes the answer difficult .

"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?
