Power-Player Promotions

Posted by Orrin Woodward on June 12, 2012

It’s summer time in Michigan! Enjoying our properties in both Florida and Michigan, Laurie and I find it difficult to determine which we like better. In truth, when I am in Michigan, I don’t want to leave; however, when I am in Florida in the wintertime, I am glad I did. 🙂

My goal for this summer is to shake hands with every Power-Player on the team. Since Power Player is the most effective way to build communities for the long haul, I am running mainly power player promotions this summer. Of course, some of the groups are double Power Players and above because of the size, but the objective is the same – to keep the main thing the main thing.

The Team is on its way to 1 million people through the LIFE Business because we keep Power-Player the main thing. The Mental Fitness Challenge, LIFE & LLR subscriptions, and the EDGE series are all amazing, but they are not the main thing. Only Power-Player ensures the community grows through depth which leads to numbers and then volume. LIFE has nearly 9,000 customers (not including the tens of thousands of members) since November 1, 2011, mainly because anyone out starting conversations about LIFE and the MFC will stumble across customers. Even so, the number one point of focus for anyone desiring a long-term business plan for success is Power-Player.

This is going to be a wonderful summer and I hope you are planning on going Power-Player and introducing yourself at one of the summer time promotions. The Team has one play that scores a touchdown every time we call it: Hut 1, Hut 2, Power-Player!

    Orrin I have to say I have never been so focused in my life my wife and I have been together for almost 10 years now and with the birth of our first child we asked our self why we couldnt have a great marriage and more time to spend with her. Then this amazing opertunity came into our lives we have never been closer to each other we are blessed to part of such a great team with Wayne and raylene and the rest of the Peterborough crew. We feel like we have found our calling and what to share I with the world. Thanks goes out to you and all the rest of the PC’s for giving even the little grass cutter guy a chance at the life he always wanted. God bless.

    Hut 1, Hut 2….everyone going POWERPLAYER!!!

  38. Steve Callarman said

    Most businesses struggle from a lack of focus on a core principle. The TEAM should be the prime example for corporations who want to develop a true hedgehog concept. Want to grow your business? – Go Power-Player. Want to help more people? Go Power-Player. Want to go on a cruise, or Disney or Maui? Go Power-Player. Want to be free? Go POWER-PLAYER!!!

  39. Elaine Mallios said

    We are so excited to come to Michigan – and to bring some people with us. That is the key. Thanks for opening this promotion up. We are power player focused.

  40. Janet Davidson said

  72. Clif Gibson said

    Fantastic conference call promoted by Chris providing any of us on his Team a means to earn the opportunity to listen in on some incredible dialog and teaching from you. Thanks so much, Orrin, for giving the work horses of the Team access to you. Can’t think of a better “two sided good deal” than shaking hands with your Power Players while your Power Players get to shake hands with you. What an occasion this is to catch the coming wave. See you higher up!!

  73. Debra Mohr said

    Fantastic conference call and thank you very much. Keeping things simple and power player is the play. Amen.

  80. Phil Mette said

    “The only reason men fail is broken focus.” This is So true about power player also, it is easy to get distracted by so many other “good” things along the way & forget about the main thing that secures a business. Thanks for setting a great example for everyone by staying on point.

  81. Teri Smith said

    We are so fired up over the new promotion. See you in Michigan this summer. Thanks again.

  82. It is all a mental game. Everything begins with the mind and we just need to align our ant with our elephant; visualizing success. We need to visualize showing fifteen plans a month–making it a habit– and visualize ourselves going power player. We will acheive success because through Christ we can do all things!

    Thanks Orrin For opening up your home again.
    God Bless

    Powerplayer has always been what has worked. If it works, don’t change it. Simplicity is always better than complicated.

  86. Michelle Mielke said

    Thanks Orrin for reminding me of the basics that work….Power Player! A huge thank you to you, Laurie and your entire family for opening your hearts and home to us this weekend.
