Orrin Woodward & Oliver DeMille on LeaderShift & LIFE

Posted by Orrin Woodward on February 9, 2013



These sure are exciting times in the LIFE business. The LIFE community wrapped up a monumental set of LIFE Leadership Conventions, Wayne and Raylene MacNamara were recognized as new PC Members, and LeaderShift is just months away from launching a leader shift. 🙂 LIFE, in other words, is great! Because of the magnitude of the message captured within the LeaderShift fable, Oliver DeMille and I felt compelled to have this book published by one of the biggest and best publishing firms in the industry: Hachette Book Group. Even so, Oliver and I refused to have the LIFE community purchase our books without offering PV to the LIFE Members who market the world-class LIFE leadership and personal development materials.

Accordingly, even though the book will not be offered through the LIFE business until the paperback version is available, Oliver and I agreed to fund, for the first two weeks only, PV on quantity orders (see below) to help leaders serve their groups in a win-win fashion. In other words, LIFE Members can provide their customers with LeaderShift and still get points for doing so despite the product not being available in the LIFE shopping cart. Thanks to the support from the LIFE office, the book can be purchased through Hachette’s normal book distribution channels, and LIFE Members can just keep their receipt for PV credit (details below).

Oliver and I felt this was the best way to ensure the communities that are driving the leader shift in North America today are rewarded! Plus, this is our way of saying thank you to all the LIFE Members and Customers, who, in my opinion, are the best marketers and customers in the world! The LIFE community is a group of people who read, listen, and associate together in a quest for excellence in everything they do.

The embedded video is a talk from the California major on moving out of the subways of life into the Metropolitan stages of the world. Predictably, climbing out of the subways in life isn’t easy, but when a person has been called to do something, he doesn’t negotiate the price. In the same way, LIFE has been called to do something great and doesn’t negotiate the price to be paid. The LIFE Founders are committed to providing the best products and opportunity in the world, and LeaderShift is yet another world-changing product offered by the leadership team. I am confident the book’s message will resonate with leaders across North America and be a rallying point for liberty lovers everywhere.

I would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone within the LIFE community for being part of the vision of one million people who will change the world! Attached below is the email message sent out by the LIFE office with further details.

Please join us in celebrating Orrin Woodward and Oliver DeMille’s soon-to-be released book LeaderShift: A Call for Americans to Finally Stand Up and Lead, to be released on April 16, 2013. This action-packed business fable is the culmination of Orrin and Oliver’s combined expertise and will offer every North American a deeper understanding of the Five Laws of Decline and how the respective effects are becoming increasingly evident in the United States. LeaderShift will explain this devastating phenomenon in detail, motivate readers to take immediate and precise action and, most importantly, offer guidance on how each individual can contribute to not only stopping, but reversing this crippling trend.

Orrin and Oliver are proud to have LeaderShift published by the prestigious Hachette Book Group (second largest book publishing company in the world) and will hit the mainstream under the Business Plus imprint of one of the country’s most elite book publishing groups. In 2011, Hachette Book Group had a record 182 print books and 62 eBooks on the New York Times bestseller list, 45 of which reached #1.

We at LIFE wish to extend our hearty congratulations and support to Orrin and Oliver as LeaderShift is pre-launched and begins to accept pre-orders, which are now available on sources such as Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc. Due to the critically important and timely message that LeaderShift is carrying, the authors believe that Hachette Business Book Group is the best solution to deliver this message across North America. As such, Hachette maintains full rights on this publication and LIFE will not publish or distribute LeaderShift as we normally would with a book authored by one of the LIFE Founders.

Orrin and Oliver are excited to be working with Hachette Book Group on this project; however, they are also deeply devoted to the LIFE community and committed to ensuring win-win outcomes for everyone involved in LIFE (Members and Customers). Therefore, LIFE is offering a special invitation to its Members to purchase LeaderShift and receive 40 points total for purchasing between 5 – 9 copies. In addition, LIFE will offer 100 points total for purchasing 10 or more copies (12 copies ordered equals 100 points like 10 copies ordered does). LIFE Members should see their upline for purchasing less than 5 copies for a recommended 5-point transfer per book. Purchases may be made via the web, your local book store, or by placing a pre-order now—be sure to keep your receipt for PV credit after the April 16 release. All PV will be credited in the month of April—which is perfect timing for the April 27th Chart Topper Meeting in Tampa. Your upline will have further redemption instructions as we get closer to the book’s release. This special invitation runs from now through April 30, 2013. The LIFE business will not stock this item until it is released in paperback, which is at least six months after the hardcover release. It’s important to note that after April 30, 2013, no further PV will be available from LIFE until the paperback version is released.

Furthermore, don’t miss out on the special conference call with Orrin and Oliver for “VIP Customers” in early May! Members of the LIFE community that order 10 or more copies of LeaderShift and receive 100 points qualify for the conference call and will receive a personal invitation. This is your opportunity to share a very personal, insightful hour with the authors and achieve an even richer perspective on the significant role you play in this movement.

Below are links to pre-order LeaderShift from Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

Note: Credit cards are not charged until purchase actually ships.



Orrin and Oliver will be starting a book-signing tour—more details to come. We at LIFE will keep you posted on all the latest excitement surrounding LeaderShift, including news releases and other special events.

    Thanks for the PV deal Orrin and Oliver, I was wondering how that would release. A little generosity will go a long way for you I think. In true LIFE fashion, I am sure there will be a rabid response to your promotion that will surely draw the attention of the publishers. I would suspect that pre-orders may top 100,000. Keep us posted if you hear the numbers. With a little drama and suspense the rabid response may go to a frenzy. 🙂

    We Team members in Australia are so excited about this book and are looking forward to getting it out to theAustralian public as soon as possible. The next seven months are critical for us. Our next election date is September 14th, one week before our Major. The question is: will it be a force or freedom shift? We are so grateful to Oliver and Orrin for giving us a fabulous tool. Together we really can achieve more and make a difference.

    • Jerry & Polly Harteis said

    I can’t wait to read it!! Thank you for the extending this offer. It’s truly a sign of servant based leadership–I am happy to learn from leaders that look to add value for all via a rising tide. I see evidence every day of the abundance mentality truly being employed by Life and its leaders.

This book sounds like it will be a great tool to develop ourselves and others into the leaders our country needs. Thanks to Orrin, Oliver, and the PC for hooking us up with PV for this launch. Nothing like getting paid to learn!

    We are so excited for the launch of this book! Can’t wait to see you on the signing circuit!!! Let’s change the conversation in America!

  24. Jenna Depue said

    Thank to Orin, Oliver and the PC Members for providing this opportunity. I’m so excited to read LeaderShift! I love hearing the excitement LeaderShift is creating Amazon and Barnes & Noble. This community is AWESOME!

  25. Carrie Canniff said

    I cannot wait until Leadershift is released. I have several people that are going to receive this as a gift! What an impact this book will make! Orrin, you and Laurie and the Life opportunity have already created a “leadershift” in our household. The collaberation with Oliver Demille will, I believe, wake up North America!!

  26. This is the definition of a win:win:win ! Win: A truly landmark & much needed book for everyone – from the tribes of the LIFE community to the customers to the masses not yet in the first two categories 😀 Win: Being able to pre-order and influence the rankings in a character based way ( since we are very much looking forward to this — after ‘Resolved’ from you, Orrin & ‘1913’ from Oliver — awesome sequel ) 🙂 Win : The very generous and serving leader offer of PV – continuing the focus on incentivizing the right vital behaviors of success & wealth thinking. Thank you x a million! 😉

  27. Jim Martin said

    Fantastic incentive on offering the pv to the Life community! I will be getting my 10+ books! I’m sure this book is going to be a #1 best seller by the launch date, this will launch the Life Team and get the name out there quickly. I can picture this, after it’s been a top seller for a quarter or more and Orrin and Oliver are speaking all around the country, I contact a guy and before we sit down to cover the details he is already contacting his friends to get started because he has found a way to help this Leadershift happen in our country!! I see it Orrin and I know you have seen it for years and it’s all coming together!! Love ya O

  28. Will be placing my pre-order! I can’t even begin to imagine the impact this book will have. Thank you for your dedication to the leadershift our country so desperately needs.

  29. Great promotion! Orrin Woodward, Chris Brady, George Guzzardo, Claude Hamilton, Bill Lewis, Dan Hawkins, Wayne MacNamara, and Tim Marks have such great blogs! I love the information being taught in the LIFE business. Thank you!

    Fantastic, my Awsome Wife and Partner already ordered our 10!! Can’t wait to hear Orrin and Oliver!

  32. Wendi Witkowski said

    I am pre-ordering my 10 and having it as the book to read for my monthly book club! I can’t wait to get my copies. I see Malcolm Gladwell’s, the Tipping point, in action here :-)I keep You, Oliver and the other PC leaders and family’s in my prayers, for a hedge of protection, as you go out into the lime light. Thank you Orrin and Oliver on your generosity to work it out to enable the community to have PV. I also want to say thank you for posting the Josh Bell talk. That talk has been such an encouragment and a big resource to pull from, that helps me reframe my thoughts as I daily enter the subway.

  33. Orrin,

    America is primed for a LeaderShift!
    Let’s start the dialogue and I believe from what you have told us about this book should do just that.

    Proud of you for always leading from the front.

  34. Jason Dames said

    That was a great talk at the major!!!!

  35. So excited, I’ll be ordering 10! At least!

  36. Kim decker said

    I think we all are anxious for your new book and hopefully reach millions who are yet to join us in the fight for our freedoms.

  37. Cheryl said

    I can’t wait to read this book! 🙂

  38. Lana Harriman said

    So glad that you are a man of character and strength. Can’t wait to read the book.

  39. Miriam Chong said

    Thank you Orrin.

  40. Orrin:
    If I had one critique on LeaderShift (more of a personal suggestion), is I wished you guys would written more with the antagonist, Senator Huntington. He seemed like a good villain. I think giving him a larger part would have made it more dramatic and a bigger climax. Thanks!
