Find The Speed Pass Line In Your Business

If you’ve ever visited a Walt Disney Park, you are familiar with waiting in line.

Disney is famous for its long lines. What is not so well known is a feature Disney added a few years ago called “speed pass”.

A speed pass simply allows you to cut line. You arrange for in advance, and you come back at a pre-appointed time, and get to board the ride a lot faster than the  poor schmucks who just showed up and decided to stand in line.

Probably even less well known is the fact that you can hire a personal guide to usher you through the park, give you plenty of commentary, and taking you straight to the front of the line. Talk about VIP service!

What is this got to do with your business?

In every industry, almost without fail, there is some version of the speed pass. Or even the VIP tour. Meaning there’s almost always a way you can shortcut the years of paying your dues that most people think is necessary.

Now what I am not saying is that it’s possible to get something for nothing. That is not true. What I am saying is there is usually a fast way to achieve the success you desire, and then there is a slow way. Most people take the slow way, never realizing there was a speed pass line available to them simply for the asking.

Something to think about: where is the speed pass line (or even better a VIP tour line) in your business? Are you willing to take advantage of it? Will you?

    Sounds like you're talking about a mentor.

    I know how much more you can achieve, and how faster you can get there if you have a (good) mentor.

    I've paid a scam artist and lost my money.

    But I now have two mentors who have shown me how to improve my work faster than ever. It's well worth it.

    (I mention the scam artist in case anyone should read my comment. I want them to know they exist and they should be careful who they choose to mentor them).

      Thanks Rezbi for your feedback. You're right – it pays to watch out who you're investing your time and money with. Wise choices can lead to great rewards – while foolish ones often lead to regrets.

        Absolutely.

        My regrets add up to around $30,000.00

        That's not a typo.

        I wish I'd gotten in on your mentoring when you were only charging $197 a month.
