Walt Disney Helps Small Business Owners from Beyond the Grave
Years After His Death, Walt Disney’s Business Tactics Help Small Business Owners
If you are planning to start a business, chances are that you are looking for someone to turn to for advice. But you may be looking in the wrong spot for the advice that you need. In fact, to get some good advice, you should think about taking a vacation. Maybe it’s time to visit the Happiest Place on Earth, namely Disney World in Orlando, FL.
According to an article in the Orlando Sentinel, to find the true meaning of success all one has to do is to look at the way that Walt Disney did business and then use it to be successful. Look at the following quote from the article on the website:
On Oct. 17, Korkis was the guest speaker at the Winter Park Small Business Education Series program sponsored by the Winter Park Chamber of Commerce.
His talk with the small business owners, titled “Who’s The Leader of the Club: Walt Disney’s Leadership Lessons,” was held at the Winter Park Welcome Center.
Korkis, who previously worked as Disney’s coordinator of College and International Programs, said Disney World has demonstrated that if the product is strong and appealing, customers won’t haggle over the price.
“Think about Disney World,” he said. “It’s 100 bucks to get in for one day, and $17 for parking. People still do it. Disney is not telling you the story that it’s a Magic Kingdom because it’s magic if you have any money left in your pocket at the end of the day. They’re not selling you that. They’re selling you an experience.”
No one would argue with the fact that Walt Disney built an empire and became very successful in the world of business. All a business owner has to do is look at what he did with his idea and then apply it on to their own business.
Are you a small business owner? Have a look at the rest of the article and see what else it has to say. You may just find some wisdom that you can use for your own business and in your own life. You have nothing to lose.
