LIFE Business Record Growth

Posted by Orrin Woodward on October 3, 2012

The LIFE business is closing in on its one-year anniversary (Founded: 11-1-2011), and the LIFE community has plenty to celebrate. Indeed, with product subscriptions nearly doubling since its founding, LIFE is one of the fastest growing community-building businesses in the world. Growth of this magnitude is directly related to customer satisfaction.

I am thankful, but not shocked by these results since the LIFE founders have produced a business model where people can get started for less than fifty dollars. More impressively, a new person can attend the first month of opens and community groups free of charge. Why would a company give away world-class content for no charge? Simply stated, because we know that when the customers experience the leadership culture, servant attitude, and top-notch content for themselves, they will be the best word-of-mouth marketers to their friends.

With a total training cost of under fifty dollars a month, FREE trips for people who hit 6,000 points of business in two legs (hundreds have qualified for free trips already), and the Mental Fitness Challenge receiving rave reviews, I see only faster growth in our future. Back-to-back months of double-digit growth is amazing in any field, but I truly believe it will become the norm for LIFE as more and more people realize the value being offered to them. Remarkably for a first-year company, with a good finish in October, this fiscal year will be the best growth year in my twenty years of community building! This is a testament to the life/leadership principles shared that are making a difference in people’s lives. Moreover, with tens of thousands of satisfied customers and members, I believe the rate of growth will increase as the tipping point is upon us.

If you are a member or customer of LIFE, I want to personally thank you for contributing to LIFE’s first year. If you have not experienced the LIFE difference, I encourage you to reach out to one of the LIFE members and experience the movement for yourself. LIFE’s mission is to reach millions of people with truth in the 8Fs of life: Faith, Family, Finances, Fitness, Freedom, Fun, Friends, and Following. Which Fs are most important to you? How have the LIFE products made a difference in your life?

    A huge Thank You to Orrin, Laurie, and Policy Council founders for giving us LIFE. Elizabeth and I are with you all the way!! Congratulations on stellar first year of the LIFE opportunity!

  2. Peggi Kern said

    WAY TO GO!! CONGRATULATIONS!! GREAT JOB, TEAM AND IT’S FOUNDERS!! Tim and I are so blessed and excited to be part of the MASSIVE growth and the chance to be a part of a record breaking explosion in the community building industry! We are so excited for all the reasons you mentioned in your blog, Orrin. But, it’s so hard to decide which of the 8 F’s are the most important, because for Tim and I, ALL 8 F’s are intertwined in one amazing “lever” to be the best “me” I can be. All 8 F’s are so important to me because of the Faith “F”. Because of my personal faith, I want to live with no regrets, knowing that my intentional life is the ultimate testimony of my faith! Thanks so much for having the courage to lead and follow your calling to go to a million people!! I’m blessed to be in the battle, too! I’ve learned so much!

    Thank you Orrin and the rest of the Policy Council for putting together such an amazing business. Just when we think things can’t get any better, you guys figure out a way. I’m excited for year two because I’m sure it’s going to be even better!

  4. Barry Quinn said

    Freedom is the most important F to me. Without freedom do we have the others? LIFE/TEAM has made my marriage stronger, relationships with those close to me stronger, and made me realize that accept, approve, and appreciate are an integral part of life. Thank you Orrin and Laurie and the whole PC for all you do. GOD bless.

  5. Maura Galliani said

    You’re welcome, Orrin … but also, thank YOU! Joining the Team LIFE community was the best decision of my life. Now I’m working on putting my newly-gained knowledge to action! Fired up!!

    The opportunity to get the right information in people’s lives and hear the testimonies makes what we do so worthwhile and purposeful . My entire career has always been to move a product or service of some sort with no lasting value when all said and done. I had a strong revelation once … I can be sold out and sell products but in the end what we do in the hearts and lives of people lasts forever . That’s what we do in Life move life changing information to make a difference ! What an honor it is to be chosen for this . Thanks Orrin !

  7. Josh Dames said

    Wow !!!! This has been a blast and a Blessing Orrin to see this company come together and know where we are going!!! I know today without this info Annie and I would not be where we are in our marriage (family) and or finances not to mention all the other 8 f’s!!! Thx so much and god bless

  8. Rob Crichlow said

    It has been a great year. However next year is going be even better. On to a million. Thanks Orrin.

    There is so extensive a list of different life changes i have made through the use of this LIFE material, i could hardly go through them all. One of the most beneficial principles i have learned is that what you put in comes out. Not just into or bodies physically, as i had formerly thought to be the only thing described whilst using that quote, but also into or minds. The output in my attitude, purpose, relationships, character, and so many more has changed dramatically for excellence. What you put it truly does matter, it helps shape who you truly are; inside and out.

  10. Randy Donais said

    I get chills every time I hear and/or see numbers like that! I believe we’ll hit a million by spring, 2014!

  13. Orrin,

    The LIFE materials are some of the best I have used in 30+ years of using personal development training.

    • Orrin Woodward said

      Greg, That’s saying a ton because you have been part of some of the best training and leadership teaching in the world over the years. Thanks for sharing. Orrin

  14. Jeremy Pethke said

    The LIFE materials have literally improved Samantha’s and my life in all 8 F’s! I feel truly blessed to be part of such a direction driven group of people: people with purpose and a cause!
    God’s Blessings!

  15. I love being a part of something that will impact future generations. I thank God every day that I was chosen to have this opportunity. I believe many more records will be broken on our way to a million!

  16. Really looking forward to what the next 12 months holds for those learning from the LIFE products!!

  17. Orrin, the questions were “Which F’s are most important to you? How have the LIFE products made a difference in your life?”.

    The LIFE products have made a difference in EVERY area of my life and of my family’s lives! Additionally, the information has made me realize the ALL 8 F’s should be important to me and has given me the path to find my way.

    I don’t like to think about where I would be without this influence in my life, but I can tell you for sure that I am so excited about giving this gift to others.

    LIFE has just begun, the march to a million has started. It’s time!! OPC!

    Thanks for everything O……

    You have summed up well a remarkable year in business.

    First, we launched a company where the founders themselves chose to stay in the field and earn their livelihood there.

    Next, we rolled out the One Time Cash Awards for those hitting new levels.

    Then we introduced the concepts of PAID TRIPS to people accomplishing results at two different levels on the bonus chart, WAY below what anyone else in the industry rewards with such travel.

    Then we lowered the cost of entry and the cost of ongoing business.

    What does all this add up to? An explosion!

    As you noted, our growth rates are are the fastest we’ve seen and we couldn’t be happier for the many people who are finding a way through the LIFE business to live the life they’ve always wanted!

    Thank you Orrin, and the rest of the Life founders, for pouring your heart and soul into this endeavor. It is making a difference!

    God bless,
    Chris Brady

      All this, in less than a year! Our Policy Council is amazing! I’m so glad you’ve found your purpose, and that we get to be part of it. On to a million!

  19. Rob Robson said

    This is been the best year of my life and we are just beginning! Thanks Orrin and the rest of the PC for your service to all of us!

  20. On the life products have made such a huge impact in my life that I almost don’t know where to begin. I have grown in my marriage my money managing my parenting my attitude and most of all my faith. My wife and I also took advantage of the amazing compensation plan the founders of put together and today both of us no longer have to go to work. Thank you so much for the life business and all that you do.

    All of the 8 F’s are important and they have changed my entire outlook on life. As a people we tend to only focus on the Finance “F” but through the LIFE material, people can realize that finances are just a vessel to live the life you have always wanted. Thanks to “BIG O” and the PC members for paving the way for us!!!

  22. This is wonderful news! “The O” said ‘no’ to NOT starting something new in ’11 😉 And with the support of a bunch of other rascals & their rascaleena wives, names like the Bradys, the Hamiltons, the Guzzardos, the Lewises, the Markes, and the Hawkins, we have a business that is for everyone. Frankly, even someone who is in the top 1% should want to leave a legacy, have a purpose, and serve others; so should someone who is on the opposite end of the ladder. I could go on with other examples in the other 7 F’s, however, the point is illustrated with ‘F’inances 🙂

    Look forward to Year 2! Blessings from Kaizen country in OH!

    It’s been an amazing year. Here’s to many, many more!!!

  24. Mike Coulter said

    So glad to be a part of this!!!!!

  25. Orrin
    What a fantastic first year LIFE has had. It has been exciting and I look forward to the next 10 years.
    I have been travelling the country and watching the difference LIFE material is making in peoples lives.

  26. Robert Torres said

    Addition, Multiplication and EXPONENTIAL…..On to a million baby. Woohooo

  27. Andy rockwell said

    What an amazing year! The material is so awesome, I went from never wanting to read a book to actually being hungry to get through another one. I can’t imagine the person I will become in the next 5 years. And that goes for anyone else who is hungry for improvement!

  28. Nate Kuhl said

    This “business” of LIFE is absolutely priceless. I never dreamed I could meet the people that I have met and learn from people with such humility and outstanding results in life. My fiance and I have strengthened our relationships with each other and our friends. We’ve made new best friends. I am almost debt free thanks to leaders leading by example and the Financial Pack information. I have grown in confidence and can see myself in a new light with so much potential packed away that the sky is the limit to my growth and success.
    Thank you so much Orrin for overcoming everything you have in the past 20 years and for bonding the the amazing people you have helped rise to leadership on their journeys so that North America and the world has this opportunity.
    I also have a story I’d like to share with you privately someday but I am not ready to share it publicly here. Inspiration and a dream are an amazing thing and very dangerous to mediocrity.

    God bless!

    Happy Birthday LIFE! I can’t even imagine where my husband and I would be if we were never introduced to this information last November! We thought we had done all the right things for success- got the college degrees, bought a house, working hard to climb the corporate ladder- but at 27 years old we were time-broke AND money-broke with all the hopes and dreams of our early twenties out the window. The week before we were shown the LIFE information my husband was considering getting a part-time pizza delivery job to help us pay some of the bills, but I was upset about spending even less time as a family than we did already. We both knew if we continued to do the same things nothing was going to change over the next five years. And then everything changed. LIFE introduced us to a new way of thinking. A way of thinking that we knew all along, we just never knew how to get there. We started taking a good look at our life and take responsibility for the troubles we were facing instead of blaming it on everything and everybody else. We learned more from the CDs, seminars, and books about finances, history, relationships, success, purpose, marriages, and parenting than we had learned our whole life prior. My husband got a fire in his belly and passion in his eyes that I had never seen before! For the first time since we got married we both had hope for the future of our family. We knew everything was going to get better and we were going to live the life we dreamed of when we were “young and in love.” We owe everything to the life-changing material and the amazing people that have come into our life and have never stopped encouraging us. We know this opportunity was a blessing from God when we needed it most and we will be forever grateful for the privilege of serving in such an incredible TEAM. God bless Orrin and Chris and all the Policy Council members for their dedication to serving all of us and creating an opportunity that anyone can grab hold of and change their family tree!

    Thank you Mr. Woodward for creating a system of making leaders. Leaders who way down the line saved the minds of my wife and I from subway thinking, into striving to be leaders ourselves, and take the truth to whoever has ears to hear. You have our deepest gratitude.
