World Crawl- A life changing experience
My first two weeks with World Crawl here in Las Vegas have been absolutely unbelievable. It has been so much more than just being able to go to world-class bars and nightclubs in Las Vegas, but also working with the most incredible group of people I have ever had the privilege of working with.
The First Week- “Just go and party”
For the first time in my life, I started a job and my boss told me that the only thing he wanted me to do for the first few days was to go out and party. While part of me wanted to know what was the catch, the other part of me realized that to understand what World Crawl is, you have to participate on the crawl to the fullest extent. The most rewarding part of the job so far has been meeting people from all over the world that just want to get away from the stresses of real life, come out to the greatest city in the world, and to legitimately have a great time. In the first week of working with the crawl, I realized that not only is this a great value, but it is also one of the greatest experiences someone could have while in Las Vegas. From the beads and the drinking games at the first few venues all the way to the world class DJ’s at beautiful 5,000 person capacity nightclubs, I can’t even put into words how much fun I had with the staff and club crawlers alike.
The Second Week- “Life on the street”
The second week of my experience shifted from hosting and guiding our crawlers into selling the tour itself. There was no better place for me to learn about the ins and outs of the sales experience then on the Las Vegas Strip. Over the next five days I met some of the most knowledgeable and nightlife-savvy individuals I had ever met in my life. People that taught me things in a matter of minutes that I had been trying to learn ever since I came out to Las Vegas, and information that will truly help me going forward with WorldCrawl not just in Las Vegas, but for all of our locations. The best thing about being out on the Las Vegas Strip for me was that you aren’t even afraid to approach a stranger, simply because you know how great the crawl experience is, and you know that anyone who doesn’t think it will be a great experience is truly in for a treat. After I signed up my first group, I was probably as happy as an athlete is when he wins the championship game for having the knowledge and desire to know that I could convince others of how great our club crawl really is.
“A time for Reflection”
The tail end of the second week gave me a day or two to reflect on all of the things I had done over the last two weeks and really put things in perspective. I thought about all the horrible jobs I have had, and all the false promises of employers, and came to the realization that I am so incredibly blessed to be in this position. To get paid to have a great time in Las Vegas and show other people a great time in Las Vegas may be the greatest experience I have ever had the privilege of being part of. I can only hope going forward that I will continue to grow not only as valued member of the World Crawl team, but also as a person whose passion for nightlife and our club crawl will generate positive revenue, experiences, and a once in a lifetime career opportunity for me and the people who mean the most to me.
