LIFE Leadership: First Year Results

Posted by Orrin Woodward on November 5, 2012

LIFE Leadership Results

LIFE Business Founders

LIFE Business Founders

Just over a year ago this week, the LIFE Leadership launched in North America. Amid much fanfare, several best-selling authors and top leaders partnered together in the community building business with a goal to end the decline of North American morale and productivity. When opportunity and preparedness meet, success must happen. The LIFE founders were prepared and, thanks to God’s grace, the opportunity presented itself to do something in the leadership field that had never been done before. With the  LIFE founders (pictured above), the LIFE Leadership exceeded even my highest expectations for the first year.

For instance:

1. LIFE Leadership surpassed 100% increase in subscriptions of the LIFE and LLR Series in under one year of business.
2. LIFE Leadership launched the Mental Fitness Challenge and sold thousands of 90-day challenges throughout North America.
3. LIFE Leadership paid out over $1,800,000 in end-of-year bonuses and free trips its first year.
4. The LIFE business paid out over 70% bonuses on its product volume points in its first year in business.
5. Rob Hallstrand, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Team and President of LIFE Leadership, coordinated operations for both companies, and combined sales blew past $50,000,000 (with LIFE leading the charge) from the Flint, Michigan based office. Chris Brady and I have had many great years since forming our first leadership training company in 1999, but nothing feels as good as having the best sales and profits ever this past fiscal year.
6. Team training produced its best operating margins ever (of which 100% of profits flow back to field trainers), as Mr. Hallstrand continued his dramatic turnaround of Team operations. In fact, employee cost-per-profit-dollar has decreased over six times in his three years as COO, leading to increased bonuses for field trainers and office staff—a truly stunning performance.
7. Customers composed nearly 20% of total LIFE Leadership subscriptions in its first year. Considering new members have six months to learn how to develop customers, this number will only grow as members complete training. What other community building business hits 20% customer subscriptions in its first year?
8. The LIFE business launched the Edge Series for youth and has added thousands of satisfied families in LIFE’s first year.

Happy Birthday LIFE Leadership

There are more details to follow in the coming months, but I wanted to report on a fantastic first year and celebrate LIFE’s birthday with all of you. The LIFE founders have several new products in the works to take the LIFE business to the next level, so get ready! Thank you to everyone involved in making this achievement possible, from customers, members, founders, and the office staff. Happy Birthday, LIFE! And congratulations to all of you who persisted in the accomplishment of the noble mission to change North America (and eventually the world), one person at a time!

    Life has been this past year one of the greatest experience of my life so far! Learning from the founders, reading and listening to the books and cd’s that they suggest have changed the way I think and act completely. There isn’t a better product out there that will help people find the results many are looking for.

    And to think, only more lives are going to be changed as we keep growing and expanding like the founders have envisioned.

    Thank you to the founders for all the work they’ve put into this business for the average person!

  33. Neera Puri said

    Happy Birthday Life.

    I just wanted to thank Laurie Woodward for the moving stories she has shared in the Life products that are impacting families.

    As a Psychologist it has gotten to my heart and soul to see stories like Laurie’s shifting the lives of children and parents who need this help desperately.

    I only wish we each had two lives to share this with more people. People in other countries outside of North America will greatly benefit from Life also.

    May we all remember we are connected and this first birthday is just the beginning of helping our planet heal.

    Dr. Neera Puri

    • Kirk Birtles said

  56. Micah Kramer said


    Congratulations to you, Laurie, Chris, Terri, Tim, Amy, Claude, Lana, George, Jill, Bill, Jackie, Dan, Lisa, Rob, the RT and all of the LIFE TEAM Community on this historical achievement. My life has forever changed by the ripple effect of the sacrifices and COURAGE that you all have exemplified for the past 2 decades.
    If I’ve learned anything, it’s that there is a defeat in every victory and I trust that the best that LIFE has to offer, is yet to come. It is so humbling, yet encouraging to know that there are so many champions overcoming their critics, goliath’s and personal obstacles, to take LIFE by the horns and make decisions to WIN. I am SO honored and PROUD to be in the hunt with Jeff and Tammy Darling and some of the best servant leaders I’ve ever met. This isn’t easy, but every day it becomes more and more WORTH IT, thanks to your servant leadership and constant encouragement.

    God Bless,
    Micah Kramer

  57. Martin & Patsy Cormier said

  60. John Mossner said

    Thank you to all the founders of LIFE for launching this company, adding one-time cash awards, adding free trips to run after, tweaking it to where there are points for leadership meetings, and then throwing fuel on the fire by lowering the cost of entry if people start with a subscription. Think of where this company will be next year with the growth rates we are now experiencing in the last few months! Think of where everyone personally can be in a year sharing the business and product line with others! Happy FIRST Birthday, LIFE!

  61. Orrin:

    I love this article because the numbers speak for themselves. It’s been an extremely busy year, but as you’ve shown, a super successful one. We not only launched a groundbreaking company, but posted record numbers that same year. I am perhaps most proud of our customer numbers and the excellent products we’ve introduced into the marketplace, with the MFC taking the flagship position.

    A special thank you to the LIFE Business founders and all the participants who helped make this happen. Congratulations on a spectacular opening year. Here’s to even more incredible heights in 2013!

LIFE provides the TRUE answers, when very few others are. Tom and Liz Moris

  89. Holger said

    That is awesome!! We consider it a great blessing and quite an honor to be involved with LIFE and follow Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady!! We have seen lives change for the better through the LIFE materials, starting with our own. Just the things we learned from a 90 day focus on parenting using the MFC, were worth the money we have invested in ourselves with LIFE materials.

    Some people may say, “that doesn’t work!”, but I say, “It’s not working pretty good!!!”

    God Bless!


    • Kirk Birtles said

      Amen Holger! I just came back from Thanksgiving with some family and friends. Its a hurting, truth starved world out there. God has given us this LIFE business to make a difference. Let’s not take this for granted and give it all we got on our way to 100 million in year #2. kb

  90. Great results!

  91. Jen Knight said

    So thankful to be part of the huge difference the LIFE company is making in America. Together we can achieve our own personal growth goals and be the change we want to cause.

    Can’t wait for what’s to come,

    Jen Knight

    Wow! We are truly blessed to be involved in a historical event! Every household … every university and school across the nation and around the world will be plugging into LIFE! Thanks for having a vision and following it … creating a vision for us and setting the example.

  93. Mike Stratman said

    Thanks Mr. Woodward for having the courage to swim against the current. You and the PC have created more than just a business in that I met my beautiful wife, Mentor (Mattis) and awesome friends being involved in the community. My head, heart and will have aligned and that is why I have committed to Chris Mattis to give everything I have to go triple this cycle. “CHEWING NAILS!”

  98. Jeff Guttman said

    I worked for 35 years as an engineer for GM after attending Kettering University. I admire Orrin for being able to act on his awareness that he was not leading the life he wished. It amazes me that he was able to develop a system for people to use as a vehicle to pursue their dreams. I plugged in, I’m fired up! Thanks, Orrin.

  99. Nancy Pope said

    I am so thankful to be a part of this organization. More than anything I am watching as groups are exploding in ALL parts of the country. We are just getting started to get momentum, so we haven’t even come close to full speed, but when we hit full stride! WATCH OUT – here’s to 1 Million People living the LIFE they’ve always wanted.

  100. bill lewis said

    These results are amazing. This all happened in one year and it happened while we were still making massive changes to our program. It is going to be great to see once the flow really starts moving. Life is going to make a huge difference in a lot of peoples lives. I am ecstatic to be part of something so great. Thanks to everyone who made this possible especially Orrin and Laurie.

      Amen! Perfectly said.

      Pretty amazing to surpass 50 million in the first year considering we truly did not get dialed in till the last 3 months. Thanks to you Bill and to all the leaders for your courage and faithfulness. kb

  103. Lloyd Lam said

    It is wonderful to know that a business focused on helping people is succeeding so well. Much better than reading about business that take advantage of people to make their money. Bravo!

  104. What will year 2 ,3,4, 20 look like!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Look at the first year of all the household name companies then compare. WOW!!!

  105. Brian said

  106. Alissa VanSlembrouck said

    LIFE IS AWESOME!! Thank God for giving the leaders of this company the great vision and ability to help so many people. I am forever grateful to the leaders; each of the “F’s” are improving every day in my life!! 🙂

  107. Mike Gorski said

    Unbelievable! What a honor to be a part of such an incredible organization. LIFE is fantastic.

    • Jeff Taff said

      Fantastic is an understatement Mike. Quite possibly even the best thing ever…even beating out sliced bread by a few hundered thousand votes. Yep…this is the best thing ever…all 1 million hands down!

  108. Matthew Papp said

    This is the most rewording thing I’ve done because it pays me (very well) for improving myself and helping others improve themselves too. What a great combination!

  109. colleen drew said

    Most personal growth I have ever had in 1 year!

  110. Ed Zentner said

    The life business has changed my life for the better. Thank you TEAM for your hard work.

    • Jeff Taff said

      Chris, I hear ya bud. It’s almost beyond words trying to explain just what LIFE can do for you. I guess there’s only one simplified way to say it best, “Living Intentionally For Excellence” is what we are ALL doing. This is our mission. This is our purpose. This is our destiny. This…is our LIFE!!!

  114. Tamera Lowrie said

    We are so excited to be a part of this amazing company. We really do change lives and offer hope to others. God Bless!

    That is so awasome that this buisness is something that everyone needs and unlike college they pay you to grow yourself personally !
    Keep up the great job

  124. Steven Hullings said

    The LIFE business has been a “life” changer for my family. Through the financal information we have become debt free in under two years in the business. Our next goal is financial freedom. This will be done in 2013. The Life business has been the opportunity I’ve been looking for. This could not have been done in my “JOB”. I would have been on that hampster wheel continuously running for something and never going anywhere. Thank you Orrin and the rest of the policy council members.

  125. Sherry Fix said

    This business has done such fantastic things in my life that I can’t even imagine in my own mind why anyone would do anything else!
    We will be beyond the 1,000,000 mark and I believe it will happen very soon. Orrin and the rest of the policy council leading the charge we have no where to go but to “infinity and beyond”!!
    Thanks for everything.

  126. Michael Wickey said

    The LIFE Business is awesome! Where the leaders are taking it and going to millions of people.
    I’m also learning and growing by these products.

  127. CJ Calvert said

    Orrin, it’s no surprise that with such exceptional leaders, the LIFE business is exploding! Thank you for all that you and the PC do!

  128. Bill Ascol said

    This is remarkable news and further proof that we have our hands on something that is not only life-changing, but will ultimately make it possible to change our culture for the better.

  129. Clint said

    Results like that in one year of business?! Insane! I can’t wait to see year 2 numbers and hear the stories of all the lives changed.

  130. Sherry Powers said

    What an Incredible Future You have Created for so many of us
    This Amazing 1st Year of Growth is just the Beginning

  134. Heston Glenn said

    This business contains the keys to riches — both material and otherwise. The principles I’ve learned here have taught me how to act on my purpose, how to grow, how to change, and how to better my attitude. It’s also given me the fulfilling opportunity to be a part of changing other peoples lives.

  135. My husband and I always are trying to improve our way of thinking…This business focuses on helping people reach their goals and get the results they are looking for..the bonus to it all is freedom whether it is financial or personal. So many families and individuals are changing in a way that is improving their way of life….That is what it is all about…BRAVO! The LIFE Business is the key!

  136. April Arnhold said

  140. Keith McGuire said

    The LIFE business has impacted my life in a dramatically positive way, the information is of such caliber and so easily digested. This information has allowed a me, a young guy to realize the importance of being thoughtful of my future and that of my kids someday! Everybody could use this information to at least join the many discussions going on in our countries and world today. Thank you LIFE founders for your sacrifice to allow this opportunity to anyone willing to learn!

  141. Roger Seymour said

    Life is simple the best opportunity available to the average person. Simple and easy to understand.

  142. Thanh Campbell said

    Never give up on your DREAM. Focus more on what’s to come… a windshield is bigger than the rearview mirror on purpose…what’s ahead is more important than your past. It’s how you finish, not where you started out.

  143. Jim Martin said

    Those number are amazing!!! Life is here to stay and getting stronger by the day!! Thanks to the PC for doing the leg work to get Life up and running and congrats to everyone who contributed to the growth of Life in its first year. The next year will be even bigger

  174. Dale Miller said

    Thank You Orrin and Laurie for keeping your focus on making a difference in this world. It desperately needs what LIFE offers. Also Mary and I are fired up about the trip tracking, we have wanted to take a cruise for a long time. Now for helping bring people to LIFE we can get a free cruise on the OASIS of the SEA. That is a win / win . May God continue to Bless us all.

    The LIFE industry has given us a way to face the high speed changes in life with confidence. The 8F’s are Faith,Family,Finance,Following,Friends,Freedom,Fitness&Fun.

    Thank you Orrin, Chris & all PC for your vision, commitment, and actions. It is indeed a Happy Birthday for LIFE. This business is blessed with leaders of incredible faith, character and integrity. And I am blessed to be involved.

  188. John Clary said

    The LIFE business is so much more than a great compensated community. It is a community of peers who support and encourage us as we all benefit from the wisdom contained in the educational system of the CDs, books, seminars and leadership conventions.

  189. Joshelyn said

    In all sincerity I have to say that this business is a God-sent.The leadership and integrity of the leaders has truly been like no other. I love the fact that it is so not “Corporate America”. Leadership is not a title, its a behavior. And these guys honestly live it. They practice what they preach and lead by example with results to follow.
    I can not say enough about how much of a positive impact this LIFE business has had on my personal life and my friends and family have told me they’ve seen the change in me. A lot of skeptics and people say this is a scam and will never work but one thing I know for sure is that I’m not the same me, and that’s all the proof I need!
    Im truly excited to be on this journey of success with like-minded individuals who have a dream and aren’t afraid to pursue them. Because of the LIFE opportunity I know without a shadow of a doubt that “the life I always wanted” is possible!I know it sounds cheesy, but when you come to know that what lies behind you and what lies ahead of you is NOTHING to what lies WITHIN you…there is no cause for doubt!

    • Orrin Woodward said

      Joshelyn, I love how you said that. Your personal experience is way more powerful than someone else’s ignorant opinion. I built my whole business on this simple principle. I knew I was changing and my family, faith, friendships etc were improving; therefore, others opinions didn’t phase me because I knew they didn’t know what I knew. 🙂 thanks for sharing. Orrin

      • Louanne Allison said

        A famous saying is “you don’t know what you don’t know.” Life provides you with information you didn’t know such as how to address conflict in 5 steps, what true friendship can do for your life, and how to learn in a 30 minute CD the essence of what Orrin Woodward knows in a particular topic from what he learned in reading 50 books on that topic and his practical life experience as a top leadership guru. I started on Team in 2005 and have enjoyed the journey!

  190. Jon Butler said

    This business and the people involved are extraordinary. The founders have proven themselves over and over again as experts. In life I have a choice of being ordinary and being extraordinary. I choose to be extraordinary. This business – this community is causing me to become extraordinary and it allows me to help others become extraordinary. This world class training helps you become a laser guided missile towards extraordinary time and financial FREEDOM! My ministry – the Gulf Coast Cross Project which is the building of the largest cross in the western hemisphere is coming to fruition faster due to the leadership info I am gaining from this business community. God Bless the Life Business!!

  209. Laurie Tallio said

    What amazing first year results. I live in a rural town of six hundred and often wonder, “How did LIFE find me?”(but I need only look up to find the answer). How amazing that whether rural town or metropolitan center, LIFE can be found there. I not only love all that LIFE is doing, but I love the association and the positive thinking!

  210. Thank you to all the LIFE founders for what you have created. This will truly put a dent in the world for the better. I can’t wait to see what the 2nd year of LIFE will bring!!

I am using the information to teach my special needs students to learn about success. What a year its been. The information is simply truthful and principle based. Hats off to the policy council!!!

  220. Kevin Archambault said

    What a true blessing it is to be part of this history making business. I recently read an article about a company being bought by a group of Christian businessmen. The previous ownership was donating 10% of profits to charity. The new ownership will be donating 100% of profits to charity! I instantly thought of the LIFE founders and what you are doing with the AGO series. What a blessing you have been for so many and will be for so many more.

    God Bless!

  221. Kathleen Hodson said

    LIFE business has taught me so much and I can’t imagine doing anything else. I have so much more knowledge from all the books, cds, and leaders. Can’t imagine why someone would say no. 1 million and beyond! Striving to change those that are looking for it. Thank you.

    I love this blog! I love that we have the results to back up our claims! When I was employed by a Fortune 500 company, I could care less about the year end reports– it wasn’t going to increase my check nor change the relationship between employees and management. I was under paid and under appreciated for working to make them billions!!! NOW I’m reading this report and I’m so excited!! We are becoming leaders of leaders and I can look at my own personal website and see it for myself! Congratulations LIFE! Congratulations to us all!

  228. Ronald Truitt said

    As someone who got his formal business education in the form of an MBA from Harvard, and was blessed with a successful career as a high-tech CEO in Silicon Valley, I can tell you two things with the certainty born of years of study and decades of experience: 1. Orrin Woodward is arguably the top leadership and success teacher–and performer–on the planet 2. LIFE is not only holds out the solid promise of deep and lasting personal development, but it is simply the best business model I have ever seen.

  232. We are so blessed to be a part of a mission to help families reunite in their self-development, relationships, thinking, dreams, etc….Survivor Mentality has swept over our nation…and its time to learn/teach the Success Thinking Mentality that LIFE/TEAM offer to everyone! Our Musketeer chant of ALL 4 ONE and ONE 4 ALL is going to be world wide because TOGETHER EVERYONE “REALLY DOES” ACHIEVE MORE! LIFE has what it takes to change America ONE FAMILY AT A TIME….and we are humbled to play a part in achieving that goal!

    I appreciate that the LIFE leaders truly have the fruit and humility to prove the value of their content. Leaders raising leaders that raise leaders are so rare in this day and age, but it has been a winning combination for almost 2000 years (Mt. 28:18-20).
    Keep the great information and example coming. We appreciate that you’ve blazed the trail and overcome the adversity so far.

    BTW, I greatly appreciate your Adversity Quotient chapter in Resolved. I think that much of the chapter was pretty new info for me and by itself was probably worth the price of the audiobook. I am a perfectionist and have been failure averse in much of my life, but am now learning to embrace it and the lessons learned which lead to success. Frank Bettger also referenced that principle when he looked back on one of the greatest apparent tragedies in his life as “one of the most fortunate events in my life”. Thanks also for recommending his book, “How I Raised Myself From Failure to Success in Selling”, in one of your CDs. It has already given me a couple of paradigm shifts in my first reading.

  265. Mike said

    It is wonderful that a business with so much awesome information is able to make that much in the first year. But it is AMAZING that a business will pay out that much. Other than LIFE, who does that? No other company that I know of.

  274. lynn said

    What a wonderful first year!

  275. This business is so exciting. I love being a nurse but like everything else it can be so negative you here mostly of what you do wrong. We don’t give enough encouragement in a stressful field as in nursing. Whenever I am feeling down, I meet with my team, even if I am not doing my best they lift me up. Cody and Tara Newton are awesome leaders which have developed Kris and Megan White along with Steve and Candi Brown. Love all of you and your encouragement. Looking forward to all the exciting things to happen in the next year. No matter what if you read listen and apply the information you will be successful!

Our lives keep getting better everyday. Thank you for putting us on the right path. God Bless.

  291. dan oleary said

    I would first like to say how proud I am to be involved with people who are striving to reach beyond mediocrity to excellence in,everything,that they do. The charachter of our leaders is unmatched from orrin to Bill and jackie lewis to kirk and cassie birtles to jasen and jenny nail to andy and mellisa rockwell to paul and holly brown
    just to name a few they are all outstanding leaders and im proud to stand next to them as a TEAM member.

    what LIFE has done in,the last years is amazing, second to none! what company gives ownership away in,the company,for 49.99, or pays over 70 percent of total,sales,to thier,marketing,team, or builds depth for the new people,to build their belief, or pays out 1.8 mill in year end bonuses and trips or takes the time to care for people and love people even with flaws. need I go on?!! what Life has accomplished can only be bettered by,what they do in,the future!!! this new industry is ours!!! so everyone who has a dream lets step up to the plate and reciprocate the commitment the life leaders have nade to us! lets MEO! (market execute orchestrate) our dreams are possible because of the leaders, keep your eye on,the dream and SWING!!!

    Life has become a huge part of the lives of our family. It has not just been a business, but a way of life. Always striving for excellence by growing personally, and to serve God and others. I am thankful for the renewed thinking that the Life company provides, so that I may always look to myself and not to others if I want things in my life to change. Rex and I are in Life for life, because there is no better accountability and challenge to push us to become the best that God desires for us!

But, I would like to add to this Mr. Woodward, as well as Our BEST THINKING got us where we are today, is this: “YOUR BEST THINKING that has given HOPE, GUIDANCE, DIRECTIONS and the ENCOURAGEMENT to others to get, NOT ONLY OURSELVES, BUT OTHERS AS WELL, where we truly want and need to be to fulfill our purpose in LIFE!” I personally want to thank you and the founders of TEAM and LIFE for this unselfish gift of the opportunity that you made possible for me as well as for me to share with others!
