If you’re in the US, then you’ve undoubtedly heard about the tragedy of the Amtrak train derailment in Washington. This hits close to home for me, because, I ride Amtrak about 4-5 times per month. And,
I’m trying to figure out – how in the heck you can have a train going 80 MPH in a 30 MPH zone when I can’t even seem to go 70 in a 65 without being chased down by the highway patrol. And…
after reading further, I realized that there is a technology that may have prevented the speeding that seems to have led to the derailment. And, if that were the case, there’d be 3 more souls spending time with their family this Christmas season.
And, as I read more and more, I realized that we are as succeptable to the temptations of Amtrak as anyone because it appears Amtrak was trying to save money and postponing the improvements (positive train control) that may have prevented the whole thing.
That got me to thinking…
What if we changed the way we thought about the expenses in our business? What if you were able to break out of the low-cost mold.
[+] You actively worked to pay your employees at the top of the pay scale – so that you could afford the very best & your customers got the very best?
[+] You actively worked to buy the highest quality computers, phone systems, paper, or anything else in your industry? This would give you a leg up and a way to differentiate yourself.
[+] You actively worked to only sell to those that appreciated the best – the safest – the most lavish experiences.
That’s so profoundly different than any other business approach out there right now were it’s all about smarter, faster, cheaper….
What if you did simplier, slower, more expensive?!
Or if you dug in to find out EXACTLY what your customers wanted and worked to give them the very best option…
That’s EXACTLY why I put together the Blueprint for Accelerated Growth and why I’m letting you tap into it here:
