LIFE Business Winter Leadership Conventions

Posted by Orrin Woodward on January 21, 2013

Claude and Lana Hamilton

The LIFE Business Winter Leadership Conventions kicked off last weekend in Louisville and will continue in Ottawa and California (total attendees have grown nearly 1,000 in three months!) next weekend. Three leadership conventions over two weekends for the fastest growing leadership communities is a must! Here were my highlights from the weekend. First, the crowd had a level of belief that I haven’t seen in years. So many people were recognized for new achievements, and goals were set for 2013.  Starting with the Thursday night RT meeting, every speaker brought his or her A-game. Second, the groups were having fun, an essential part of any winning team. The LIFE business focuses on having fun, making money, and making a difference—in that order. We know that when groups have fun, they make more money and ultimately make a bigger difference. Third, the new PowerPlayer Top Guns Felmar and Sandra Montenegro were fantastic! They had just missed winning several times, but this cycle, they broke through to win! GREAT JOB!

Last, but certainly not least, the New PC Recognition of Wayne and Raylene MacNamara topped my highest expectations! Seeing the love, passion, and belief they poured into the crowd was the highlight of my weekend. In addition, the genuine love and respect they have for Claude and Lana Hamilton brought tears to my eyes. LIFE is so much fuller when enjoyed with true friends who love and serve one another. The Hamilton’s and MacNamara’s relationship displays all of this. I will wait until after the Ottawa Leadership Convention to show pictures of the McNamaras on stage, but I will show this picture of Claude and Lana listening intently to their new PC couple. Interestingly, the McNamaras were Turbo 10 when they joined the Team Training System after nearly three years in the profession, and now, just over five years later, they are PCs!! LIFE has kicked it into high gear in 2013. What did the Leadership Conventions do for you? What were your highlights?

Sincerely,

Orrin Woodward

    It was such an amazing feeling being there. I have been to many Majors, but this was my first one that I had 4 first time team mates from my second team. A team that is so on fire and ready to run big!!! When I had seen PC’s being recongized in the past, I pictured my husband and I up there being as new PCs. But this time was different. I saw my self in Claude and Lana spot this time, and the feeling of my team mates as PCs. When you have these great relationships forming, you want to run for their victories all so much more.
    This is SO REAL!!!! GOD IS GOOD!!!
    Side note:
    Raylene McNamara dress was AMAZING!!!! It was my favorite ever!!! But I was looking to see the shoes. LOL.

  2. Carla Girard said

    Orrin, the Louisville major was such a memorable experience! You are so right – you can tell how tight the bond is between the Hamiltons and the MacNamaras. No wonder Wayne & Raylene made a CD about tight relationships!!! The theme of the weekend was believing in yourself, improving yourself, and the 3 keys to the business (listen, read, and associate). How easy to do, but how easy not to do!

    Thanks for all you and the PC do for us to simplify the opportunity!

  3. chris volkmann said

    The major sounded great. I was home with a back injure Lisa is tellling everything about it – she is a melancholy cloeric acting very sanguine this morning. Thank for everyrhing.

  4. Dave ober said

    It was an amazing weekend! Thank you so much for all the time and effort that went into planning this event! Wayne and Raylene was defiantly the highlight ! The relationships built here are like no other and no amount of money could buy! Each speaker brought their message with such relatability! Just some of the things that stood out to me were- Laurie Woodward talked about Living a disciplined life creates real peace! Terri Brady “when you encourage you are actually putting courage in someone! Chris Bradys talk on How to Speak Life could totally transform our work place, home, church etc! Lisa Hawkins talk on “Sometimes you have to shift gears” was a great analogy for life! Also loved Orrin’s talk on subway vs metropolitan was very impactful and so true – “There is a broken heart inside of everyone who will take the time to listen to them!” Thanks again to the policy council of life ! One million is just the first stop!

  5. Thank you Orrin and PC for these amazing events! The major is where I became a member of the LIFETEAM. And they continue to be that kind of event for me. I went into the major committed to go the extra mile in every thing I do (thank you Militellos for that seminar) I am super excited to add Pause…Pray…Ponder…Proceed to my daily life (I was in the tool room for that one and my awesome husband made sure I got that message. Thank you Steve!). The things that you learn and bond with being around your group are not easy to describe and I would not trade them for anything. This major was a turning point for me and meant so much more to me than what I have written here. You all know that feeling. I am thankful for all of you and look forward to the future with you guys! God bless you!

  6. Sarah Verhoeven said

    Wow!!!!!

    Just a taste of what we have to look forward to this coming weekend! Can’t wait!

    I love LIFE!

  7. Leslie said

    Orrin,
    This major was definitely the start of an amazing chapter in all of our lives. You have created the ‘rosetta stone’ to enable people to learn how to ‘speak LIFE’! This weekend removed doubts and replaced them with Wonder. Lots of hearts are beating again, including mine.
    Thanks to you and Laurie and the rest of the pc for everything you have done, and continue to do~
    Leslie

  8. It was the most amazing leadership meeting ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Kathleen Smies said

    Wow! I can’t wait to see those shining eyes in Ottawa, although it may be a little hard to see through our own tears…

  10. Nicole Mccurry said

    This major conventions has inspired me so much to be a winner!

  11. Huge CONGRATS to Wayne and Raylene! The peaceful, joyful smile on Raylene’s face and the giant smile on Wayne’s face says it all! Dream, struggle VICTORY! You could see the joy of completing an amazing LIFE victory in their beautiful smiles. They weren’t thinking of the sacrifice or the struggle- you could tell they were thinking WORTH IT! Very happy for them and all their Kaizen brothers and sisters! AWESOME!

  12. Dawn Marx said

    I believe that God has great things in store for those of us who commit to serving others through the LIFE business. Every speaker shared from their hearts which makes us know why we do this. Thanks to the PC’s and PC wives for your character, caring and dedication to excellence as well as being awesome examples of the 8 F’s. That is part of the system to be copied and repeated as we strive to become better leaders and make relationships work. Amazing weekend! Every minute was so worth the lack of sleep!

  13. Kim Myer said

    I love Major conventions – it’s a shot of just what I need, just when I need it!! I loved Dan’s reminder to have a business kit on hand so when you sign up a new person, you can promote everything in the kit. I was in a different business years ago and when the boxes showed up, I had no idea what to do or how to get started. I lasted less than a year. Thanks to Dan’s talk, I was reminded of this and immediately went to the tool room so when I sign up my new business partner this week, I’ll be ready!!!

    Great job to all of PC for an exciting weekend and to Wayne & Raylene for achieving their goal – the visual of them on stage was a tremendous dream building exercise for the rest of us!!
    Kim Myer, Gladiator

  14. robert wilcox said

    The recognition was amazing !! To watch a PC break a PC the hug the ring WOW! Simply the best yet!! How about that dress!!!! This Wayne and Raylene .. looking at their background and the struggles that they went through. Congratulations well earned well deserved!

  15. There is too much to say! I have always said that nothing can beat our first major but this one came the closest!!! It was magical!! Kirk and I solidified our picture into our subconscious!!! Now it’s time to charge hard full speed ahead!! This elephant is roaring!!! We absolutely love our life because of LIFE!!! Thank you and the PC for always leading us into a bright future!!!! Wayne and Raylene, we salute you!!!!!
    Kirk and Nicole Porter

  16. Paul Wiswall said

    In looking back, the fighting was the highlight. My wife and I have been growing individually over the past 7 months in so many ways thanks to the LIFE Business. But not necessarily together. That became obvious on both Friday AND Saturday night after getting back to our rooms. We’ve been growing closer but there has been a major issue that’s been obstructing our progress and we had to face it this weekend. Bluntly – Love and Respect for each other. In the past, the kind of fights we had would have been avoided or ended with me beating my car up again. But the Team, it’s purpose, the Founders, the role models, the mentoring, the life changing information, the environment, the community of positive caring people, the accountability to others on our team who are watching us, the desire to win and learn how to lead my family… Everything that’s at stake! I could go on and on. This weekend helped us get on the path that my wife and I have been seeking and we’re finally ready for. There’s no one specific thing. It was all so fantastic. But getting time and wisdom from our mentors, Mark and Rita Haas was crucial for our business and marital growth. Thanks to them for their example and guidance. Watching them on stage Saturday was awesome, but they really knocked it out of the park on Sunday! Fired up!!! Here’s to a better marriage, a bigger community, and a brighter future. It’s time to start winning.

  17. Rick & Bonnie Farrand said

    We come home with more belief after every Major convention! I am so excited about what the LIFE organization is going to do for our contry’s well-being! ….and around the world! Changing lives and changing the current culture! THANK YOU for believing in us!

  18. Somehow the LIFE community has done it again, they made the convention even better! I would personally like to welcome Wayne and Raylene to the Policy Council their years of learning, persistence and dedication will add so much value to this group.

    • Matt Mielke said

      Words can’t describe this last convention. Michelle and I stood on the side of the stage when the MacNamaras were recognized. There was a shower of flowers that came from the crowd that eventually covered the stage. I stood there in awe of what they have accomplished. I pictured Michelle and I up there. What we would say, how we would react to the overwhelming outpouring of love and support. As we go out into the world to share the LIFE opportunity, we have another example, among thousands, that dreams really do come true. Matt

      • Dave Hall said

        Matt,

        I saw you and Michelle up there too… introducing me and Sarah as new PC! Love you like a brother… maybe more than a brother!

        Dave

  19. Tammy Darling said

    WOW! Doesn’t even come close to this past weekend conference!!!’ Words can’t convey the emotion & passion brought in by each amazing speaker!!! First the Topgun winners Felmar & Sandra- TOO AWESOME!!! Then new PC’s Wayne & Raylene TOTALLY BELIEF, PASSION, LOVE & OVERWHELMING… See- no words can express… Thank you for this amazing purpose with a business attached, called LIFE!!!!

  20. Chad Waters said

    Great Blog Orrin!

    I can’t wait to celebrate this celebration in Ottawa with Wayne & Raylene MacNamara and Claude & Lana Hamilton with all our Canadian Teams as we hit our way together to 1million!

    Chad & Catherine Waters

  21. Rick Green said

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts, Orrin. I am looking forward to the celebrations, in Ottawa, this weekend!

  22. Jeannie Norton said

    This was my first major and I was awed by how incredible it was! Nothing like I expected!! The love of Jesus Christ could be felt throughout Freedom Hall and Chris Brady’s sermon Sunday morning was fantastic! I took page after page after page of notes to read again and to share with my team members who couldn’t be there. One of the best moments if the weekend was meeting Terri Brady and having my picture taken with her and another team member!! She is an inspiring woman! The entire weekend was so inspiring!! I will be Power Player by February seminar!!
    Jeannie Norton

  23. Robert Daley said

    Seeing the victory that so many of us are going to have is no doubt the BIG feeling of this convention. Thanks to people like Wayne and Raylene we are all able to better picture our day on the big stage.
    Thank you Orrin for all that you and the team do to help others succeed and make a difference.
    God bless

  24. Kandis Packer said

    I had a fantastic time at the winter leadership conference. Unfortunately I got hit with the stomach bug around 3 pm on Saturday so I missed Wayne and Raylene’s recognition and everything in between. But thankfully Facebook had me covered. Everyone posted all the highlights of the talks and even a video of their recognition. Although its not live and in person I’m still up to date. I can’t wait to hear the CDs come down on system. Not sure I can wait until June to get around all of the leaders again.. Guess the CDs will just have to do. 🙂 Thank you so much for having the courage and persistence to follow through with your dreams so others like me can get a REAL education without going broke. I can’t wait until our Freedom to focus day is here. We’ve put a date on it and fully intend on running our guts out to accomplish it! Thanks again and God bless!!

    Yes, Orrin. LIFE changing. That’s what this Major Leadership Convention was. Thank you to you and the PC for all you continue to do to pave the way for our success! Gotta go now… I hear my elephant calling!

  28. Georgia Baker said

    The glisten of hope of the dream has returned . The dust was shaken off , all self defeating lies were debunked , belief restored and the posture to conquer has risen up ! Thank you Orrin for your commitment to building a community that allows us all to have our dreams and change our families and those hurting around us . It allows us to fulfill our call on life , to set the captives free.

  29. Michele Lewis said

    Thanks for the post Orrin. I was already looking forward to the celebrations in Ottawa, but now I’m really excited. Four more days to get more people to come along with us!

  30. Fantastic! Orrin Woodward, Chris Brady, George Guzzardo, Claude Hamilton, Bill Lewis, Dan Hawkins, and Tim Marks have such great blogs! I love the information being taught in the LIFE business. Can’t wait to hear about the new PC’s and RT’s in the coming months! Thank you!

  31. Kay Johnson said

    I had the pleasure to work in the tool room this major. It was so much fun meeting so many other members new and old. I believe my favorite part was Terri Bradys queen talk. I also have to say I like how Tim Marks can slap you with the truth. So excited to see what this new registration is going to do for the biz. Thank you so much!!

  32. Mary Ellen Robson said

    So glad to be in the same boat with such great leaders–going forward!!! Can’t wait for Visalia!(and beyond)!!

  33. Rob Robson said

    I am so excited for California this Weekend and for Team 1 Purpose to win the top gun power player award!! So grateful for the examples of people like Wayne and Raylene McNamara! 2013 is going to be HUGE!!!

  34. Charlie Mallios said

    Fantastic weekend, Orrin. Great teaching. We had a blast! So inspired by the Top Gun Power Players – the Muldanado’s. My daughters have heard them in California at their convention and tell us how great they are. We will match them x2! Fabulous tools, talks and fun! See you in Florida.

  35. Beth Drumm said

    Leadership conventions always give a check up from the neck up. They always renew my conviction to persevere and win.

  36. Theodore Hewing Jr said

    READING, LISTENING & ASSOCIATION!

  37. Ernie Fehr said

    This was my first ever major, and first of many many more to come! It was absolutely phenomenal! All the speakers were incredible! With this being my first major convention, and being able to witness Wayne and Raylene MacNamara get recognized as PC brought tears to my eyes! This convention has brought me unseen hope for the future of this business! Fired up!

  38. Justin said

    WOW. It was the first time I got to see anyone go PC and it was amazing to see the friendship and respect that was between all the leaders on stage. I can’t wait to join you, thanks again for everything. God Bless

  39. Jonathan Brandenberger said

    One thing that I really love is when you, Orrin, come onstage playing Our God. It states the nature of The Life Business and its cause.

    God Bless,
    Jonathan Brandenberger

  40. It was an amazing weekend from all angles. I LOVED your subway to metropolitan talk, and it was obvious that it stuck with everyone who referred to “leaving the subway” for the rest of the weekend. I can practically see it as a job description:
    Them: “So what do you do?”
    Me: “I teach people how to leave the subway and play in the metropolitan like they were meant to.” hehe!

    Dan’s talk about the artist who “could have been,” and Laurie’s talk about No reservation, No regrets was perfectly pointed. The clincher of the weekend was of course the recognition for MacNamaras. What phenomenal speakers – even as “new” to the PC team!! He had me crying (again) when he talked about seeing his #87 (Claude) turning around and coming back onto the ice; because I know there were a lot of 87’s in the crowd listening, who will inspire many to millions in the future to become all who God meant them to be.

    Of course, the biggest impact is always the Sunday morning worship service. Singing in the choir is a double blessing of worship, but hearing the Word taught so clearly and humbly by Chris was moving. I will never read Moses again without thinking about the trick with his hand – and what a reminder that Moses’s God is the God we worship today.

    Thanks for all you do!
    Terri

  41. Steve Duba said

    Thanks Orrin We can’t get enough.Moveing foreward with more excitement and inspiration than ever.We are on the lookout for Josh Bell.God Bless you all for what you do.

  42. After reading your post…and all of these comments…there’s not anything to add! It was an incredible weekend and I, too, extend my congratulations to Wayne and Raylene on a well-deserved victory!

  43. Donna Cardwell said

    It was an amazing weekend – it added to my belief and resolve to build my business in 2013 —– the depth of the love and knowledge and honesty and integrity is so inspiring! Thank you!

  44. Edwyn Houser said

    The whole weekend was a highlight! It was so awesome! I wish I could experience it again. Wow. Sunday morning was so uplifting. Bill Lewis and Tim Marks were fired up. Orrin was excellent as always.

  45. Joseph Keller said

    Thanks Orrin it all started with you and Laurie and just look at whats begun. Now we have Life’s first PC members Wayne and Raylene MacNamara congrats and welcome back home and get ready for the celebration of celebrations Claude and Lana we love you all, and we can’t wait to see you all. May your legacies be only the beginning of thousands more for your vision of a million people is getting clearer and clearer and will only be the beginning.

    Oh Canada! Its party time and the nations capital, Ottawa here we come!

  46. Vicky Connell said

    Great Blog,

    I can’t wait til Ottawa Major to see my sister and brother in law Raylene and Wayne MacNamara cross for PC. To have all our family there fr Cape Breton. Family and friends fr Life/Team. Claude and Lana for everything they have done, and Orrin and Laurie Woodward and the rest of the PC so very thankful, I tear up just thinking about this weekend. I am so proud. I can’t wait for the rest of 2013 and what it will bring..

  47. Jim Martin said

    Orrin,

    This major was the absolute best in every category, recognition, content, and EXCITEMENT!!!

    Seeing new PC’s Wayne and Raylene was a great way to give us all the vision of 2013 being the year

    for more PC’s to break! Because of all the Liberators there this past weekend business launches were

    happening all over the country and hundreds of plans got bookes tonight!!Fired up to see what happens

    in Columbus at the next major.

  48. Wade Hamblin said

    Thank you for the post Orrin, looking forward to share the same moments in Ottawa in 4 more days! Still time to make that decision for some..

  49. Clint Fix said

    This major was incredible. Seeing Wayne and Raylene get recognized for PC was worth the price of admission alone. Watching them accomplish such a major victory and the witnessing the emotion that comes along with it was very moving. It reminds me of seeing athletes win a gold medal in the olympics. Congratulations on a well deserved victory!

    I can’t wait for the next major in June!

  50. What a great way to kick off the new year with Wayne anf Raylene’s PC recognition. I think a lot of decisions were made ths past wkend that will change the future’s of so many people.Your subway to meteopolitan talk was by far the most impactful for me for many reasons and Sunday service was the most emotional. The team has the right people on the bus and 1,000,000 people is on the horizon. Thanks for all.you do! God Bless

  51. Dan Schaenzer said

    Ashley and I felt like someone reached deep into our souls, and showed us greater purpose for our lives and the great people of this country at this major. The vision coming out of it, especially after the mcnamara’s PC talk, gave us the drive and focus to be excellent in everything we do! Thank you again PC for all that you do

  52. Rob Sample said

    I have been to a few majors now and this one felt so different. For the first time in my live, i have experienced what it is to be humbled. At a meeting after the meeting I asked my team what there “why” was. Learning about what people really want our of this. It was so touching and gives me a reason to go build this. I wish i would have brought a box of Klennex with me…PDCA for next time ha ha. More than just building a business, helping others as well which is most important. I am so bless that i got shown this opportunity. This past weekend really opened my eyes to what Orin’s vision, giving everyone who enters the business and equal opportunity.

    I am so grateful for someone having the courage to show me this information about the LIFE business. I am so grateful for all the people i have met and can call my friends. I am so grateful to see where this business is going and how many lives it is going to change. I am so grateful for my leaders for not giving up on me in this business. This business is going to give me the life that i have always wanted! This business gives people the chance that they thought they lost. I am so fired up about it. ACTION cures fear! Who wants to be FREE, who wants to make a difference in this world, who wants the LIFE they have always wanted!

    Thank you so much

    Rob Sample

  53. Jennifer K said

    Congratulations, Wayne & Raylene, from the MItten!!! This past weekend was amazing, and inspiring beyond words. Orrin – and definitely the rest of the Policy Council, thank you so much for all you do, the examples you set, and the love you pour into LIFE.

  54. Tiffany Pakulski said

    The best part about the weekend was watching the new people experience their first leadership convention. And what a first one to attend with the PC recognition! Watching you explain to Wayne the meaning and responsibility of the PC ring was powerful.

  55. Aaron said

    it was absolutely amazing seeing the Macnamara’s go PC it was the first time i saw anyone go PC

  56. Chris Schill said

    2 words that I’ve continued to hear and whole heartedly agree : Life changing!! Let’s go change others lives like ours were this weekend!

    On to a million!

  57. Maura Galliani said

    Every Major Convention just gets better, and I always feel like I get exactly what I need — what God wants me to get — every time. Chris Brady’s “Lifesafer” talk especially hit me in a most enlightening and helpful way given where I am in my journey right now. The belief, enthusiasm, and love pouring out from the community’s leaders to us all touched me beyond words. And I’m unable to say anything about the overwhelming inspiration I received from Wayne and Raylene — and everyone’s reaction(s) — except, “Please pass me a BOX of tissues!” Fired up!! 🙂

  58. Lisa Volkmann said

    It was an absolute fantastic weekend – all the speakers and each of their topics touched every part of my life. I love the fact that there are real people speaking from their true heart on stage not from some fake script written like the media. I also love the fact that each of them are inspired by a great and loving God to go into the world and share truth. 😀

  59. Hi Orrin

    Do you think it’s possible to go Power Player to PC in 12-18 months? Listening to Wayne and Raylene Saturday night got me thinking, so I drew it out on paper last night.
    It looks like if I have the guts to go Power Player EVERY month, and break power players in multiple legs every month, 18-month PC is the outcome.
    This weekend helped me decide it’s time to get off the bench and into the game. I’m with you for the rest of my life, all the way to the end.

    God bless
    Jason Fredrick

  60. Hilary Dorr said

    This was the best Leadership Convention to date! I loved seeing the new PC recognition and the relationship that they have together. It was just awesome!

  61. Cheryl Koziol said

    The excitement in Kentucky was far better than any of the last 4 conventions! It is just infectious!

  62. Scott Staley said

    Can’t wait for the ‘home coming’ in Ottawa! Friday night will absolutely rock! I still remember Claude and Lana being recognized and the feel of the arena – it gives me goose bumps!

    2013 is the year of the round table, and Wayne/Raylene have set the stage by setting the tone. The Bannister effect will be present throughout 2013 and beyond with the leaders stepping up and leading from the front. Thank you for providing the environment where this could happen – looking forward to seeing all the leaders soon.

    Scott

  63. Renee Oettinger said

    It was an incredible weekend. A motivator for many is the high level respect that is shared at the PC level and your welcoming Wayne into the PC circle was very inspiring. I can’t wait to see the video clip on it. Thanks for serving

  64. Elizabeth Sieracki said

    The word that describes the weekend for me…..BELIEF!!
    Thank you to the PC and the TEAM office for all the work they put into making the weekend fabulous. It was amazing!!

  65. Orrin,

    Where do you even start? My cup was filled Thursday night, and then once again on Friday afternoon before the main event even started. Beyond being ready to go home on Friday afternoon so fired up, I would have to say the highlights for me were; Terri Brady’s talk, Chris Brady’s talk, The Subway People and the Metropolitan, and how could anyone not be moved watching Claude & Lana introducing Wayne & Raylene. It was a fantastic weekend!!!!!

    Oh by the way, did I mention Sunday morning Chris Brady’s biblical teaching and the Panel with George Guzzardo hosting those three fantastic couples; Dean & Teresa Frey, Holger & Lindsey Spiewak, and Mark & Rita Haas. What great teaching!!! Anyone who missed the Panel missed the application of our “Secret Weapons”

  66. Larry Pahl said

    Lot of awesome comments! Im very excited for California! 2013 is going to be a great year. Im already excited to see people moving up. Congrats to the new PC’s and RT’s!!!!!

  67. Josh Dames said

    Best major ever!!!!

  68. Terry said

    Superb function. Watching new people at their first function never gets old. Opening eyes, minds, and hearts to the truth. Thanks PC

    Thank you for the post, we are ready for our major tomorrow and I am so excited. Canada is a buzz! Cars are packed and ready to go, flights are cleared and ready for take off, as we cheer on Wayne and Raylene Macnamara. The picture of Claude and Lana says it all.

  70. Kim Decker said

    Orrin,
    yes we all I beleive got choked up when the McNamaras where up there. It is awesome to see it “WORKING”

  71. Jenny Salter said

    Orrin,
    The weekend was wonderful starting with the RT meeting and your plan for Leadershift and the Team! Then the leadership meeting on friday was one of the best ones yet! Then the major was magical!! But the best moment of the whole weekend of the true bound you felt between the Hamilton’s & the McNamara’s. It brought tears to my eyes! The journey from this crazy business brought a friendship that was stronger then anyone I’ve seen! Thanks for all you do today for the friendships your creating for tomorrow!!
    Jenny

    Some of my favorites were: all the little meetings after the meeting and in between the meeting with just our group — I LOVE MY TEAM! Also, Chris Brady’s “Life Savor” talk was awesome, meeting one on one with Mark McDonald in the hall and him giving specifics to help me in my personal fitness journey, Dan and Lisa fired me up because I picture me and Matt everytime (they have 3 girls and so do we…), the first time the Woodwards took the stage – the song they came out to alone spoke volumes of this couple and I cried before they even said a word!, I loved the Hamiltons and the McNamaras on stage for the PC recognition and my favorite part of that was them thanking Orrin and seeing him tear up! What a business we have in our laps! I love that when one couple/person wins it is directly connected to someone else winning! WOW, BRING ON 2013!

    Orrin,

    The Power Player meeting was amazing and a great start to a fabulous weekend! Every speaker was at their very best and of course the grand finale was the new PCs. You can feed your elephant big peanuts watching Claude & Lana Hamilton welcome their new PCs to the the inner circle! Watching you put that ring on Wayne’s finger and Laurie give Raylene the necklace was extra special.
    Ken & I came back with more belief and we always say this is the best major ever and they keep getting better and better!
    We have Double Power players, Bart & Meriel Springer attending the Ottawa, Canada major next weekend and can’t wait to hear what they have to say!
    Orrin we love you and Laurie and can never thank you enough for all you do for us!
    We know with God’s help we will be joining the PC inner circle and be able to make a difference in so many lives.

  74. Amazing Major! First: Much appreciation to LIFE Support/The Office for everything they do – I always volunteer when the Major is local, and while it wasn’t this time, I know that anyone who did + those folks working for Rob H, are gold medal class 🙂 Second: Thank you to the entire PC for what you all do!

    Some personal highlights – The Bradys talks; both of them were world class. The Sunday service. Your talk on Saturday evening – the ‘Metropolitan & the Subway’ was such a fantastic theme! And, top of the top was the PC Recognition. Terry had us come down to show our support to our cross line Kaizen brother Wayne & our sister, Raylene 😀 It was a wonderful experience being on the ground level so close to the stage; the ventilation system needed some work – too much dust caused eye leakage 😉 😉

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. THIS WAS AN AMAZING MAJOR. THE LEADERSHIP OF OUR ROUND TABLES, AND PC’S HAS HELPED US GET OUT OF THE SUBWAY AND INTO THE METROPOLITAN. BEING FROM NYC, THIS PICTURE WAS CLEAR AS DAY. LIBERATORS IN FLORIDA ARE FIRED-UP. LT-IT.
