Tony & Sharon Hoffman – Freedom Day

Posted by Orrin Woodward on July 8, 2012

Tony and Sharon Hoffman have earned their freedom through faith, hard work, and perseverance. Few couples have worked as hard as Tony and Sharon to get free from their jobs in order to pursue their destiny. Recently achieving Round Table level, Tony ended his employment as a school vice-principal and is now focused on going Policy Council. The LIFE Business is changing people lives through world-class success training. The compensated community is getting people job-optional and the leaders are changing communities one person at a time.

The dream is alive and well for those who build depth, build numbers, and build volume though power-player. What dream is alive in your soul? Isn’t it time you lived the life you always wanted? Here is a wonderful video that Denny Smith made of Tony’s freedom day. Can you imagine your freedom day? Make 2012 your year.

    Congratulation, Tony and Sharon! Thank you for providing the picture for so many who are working for the same freedom you’ve achieved! You are an inspiration!


  12. Randy Donais said

    I am absolutely convinced that if you work hard and do everything the right way that job optional can happen to all of us. I love to hear when somebody leaves their job and does this fulltime.
    That’s why after four months of having been exposed to LIFE I will do something every day toward that end. If not I will die first. There is no better option out there. Where else can you get paid for getting better and others better?

    Fired up! Tony came through my line in the tool room checkout during the April Major. I didn’t know who he was at the time, but he had this excitement in his eyes that something awesome was about to take place; like he knew something that nobody else knew. Later that weekend the Hoffmans were recognized on stage for hitting a new level and I thought, “Oh, cool, that must be why he looked so happy.” Now I know the rest of the story! How awesome! Congratulations!

    • Michelle Mielke said

He is never going to remember mom or dad working a traditional job, but he will be proud of you two for going out and serving night after night in the living rooms of America.


      • Jen Ulrich said

        I’ve seen the poster Silas “made” for his daddy’s freedom day: lots of glitter, and much, much bigger than he is! He’ll need you to hold him AND the poster πŸ™‚

  43. Freedom has never been free in the history of the world. There has always been a price…

    Tony & Sharon have been true warriors, losing many battles, with the winning attitude of quitting is not an option.
    They have paid a price that most people are simply not willing to pay,
    however like Ben Franklin, freedom from the 9-5 means the ability to focus more on public achievement and service to other people as well as this great country.
    They are now free to invest 40+ hours a week previously trading time, to their passion and purpose. Many people have been blessed in numerous ways by Tony & Sharon, however as they say: you can count how many seeds that are in an apple, but you can’t count how many apples that are in a seed. They are truly making a difference and on their way to moving from success to significance.

    We are very proud of them, for who they have become…and realize they are just getting started in this game called LIFE.
    Like Oliver DeMille says: True (North) Americans never retire. They work hard to make a better world for their grandchildren.
