Charlie “Tremendous” Jones: The Price of Leadership
Posted by Orrin Woodward on March 6, 2013
An old Charlie “Tremendous” Jones tape kept me
building my compensated community many times when I was hurting. Charlie’s ability to share inspirational truth is second to none. I cannot count the number of times I reached for Charlie’s tape to speak truth to me one more time. Fortunately, in the last year of Charlie’s life, I had the honor of getting to know him and his family. Spending a day together in Harrisburg and later in Port St. Lucie were two days I will remember forever. Remarkably, the years of listening and applying the principles he taught on that worn out tape led to great conversations with Charlie on leadership, faith, and legacy. The gift of his teaching and friendship was invaluable to me. In fact, Charlie, shortly before he passed away, sent me a portion of his library, telling me he knew I would use the books to make a difference. I told him I would and I intend to follow through on my commitment with the LIFE Business and LeaderShift.
Charlie “Tremendous” Jones lived his life with passion
and commitment. The reader can see just a sliver of this passion in the following video. Charlie was filled with Jesus Christ and his example made everyone around him better. I thank God for men like Charlie Jones who teach that ruined sinners, who accept Jesus Christ, can do “Tremendous” things with their lives.
