Life Team Community by Orrin Woodward

The LIFE TEAM Community

The LIFE TEAM Business is growing across North America. Who is this leadership community and what is the purpose of LIFE Team?

What is LIFE?

LIFE is an innovative leadership company that has combined the best parts of four industries.

1. Home Based Business

2. Community Building

3. Leadership

4. Life Coaching

Home Based Businesses (HBB) are exploding. Riding on several trends that enhance it effectiveness, many men and women are working at home today. Mitch Renkow, economics specialist elaborates: Three key trends promise expanding opportunities for some small and home-based businesses while diminishing returns for others. They include:

1. Rapid advances in information and telecommunications technologies

2. An ever more integrated global economy

3. Changes in the shopping habits of consumers

Communities have been in decline for over fifty years. Author Jon Tyson writes:

From Wall Street traders to advertising executives, from nannies to MTV producers, it seems that in some fundamental way we are incurably communal. What’s ironic is that all of these people are living in New York City, surrounded by millions of people, yet feeling incredibly alone. Though they may feel like it, these people are not alone. This loss of community has in some ways become our collective experience of American life.

This relational disconnection was first identified and popularized in the year 2000 in Robert Putnam’s work Bowling Alone.

1. Simply put, he proposed that America was losing its sense of community, or its social capital — the reality that we are a part of “the whole,” and that we participate in small but significant ways to the greater good. He noticed “that we sign fewer petitions, belong to fewer organizations that meet, know our neighbors less, meet with friends less frequently, and even socialize with our families less often.”

2. Putnam went on to suggest that changes in work, family structure, age, suburban life, television, computers, women’s roles, and other factors have contributed to this decline.

One of LIFE’s major initiatives is to bring people together into a community of encouragement, unity, and growth. When a tide is rising it lifts all ships and LIFE’s goal is to help raise the tide by bringing people together in communities. When LIFE marries the best of Home Based Businesses and Community the results is communities where the people are reward for referring others into the community in a win-win fashion. Lead a little; bonus a little. However, Lead a lot; LIFE bonuses a lot. This allows people to choose their own level of commitment and bonuses.

Remember, in an HBB, you are in business for yourself, but in a community, you are not by yourself. In other words, the community meets people at their needs and helps them become better.

This is where leadership and personal development come in. LIFE is built around the internationally acclaimed leadership principles in Chris Brady and Orrin Woodward’s New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling book Launching a Leadership Revolution. Both Chris and Orrin were recognized as two of the Top 30 Leadership Gurus. They co-authored (Leadership and Liberty and Tidbits and Treasure, and L.I.F.E.) and solo authored (Rascal for Chris and RESOLVED for Orrin) numerous top selling books. In addition, Orrin Woodward just won the 2011 IAB Leadership Award.

LIFE’s leadership pedigree is second to none. With leaders of this caliber, anyone can learn to lead and the community ensures the principles are taught and applied within the leadership growth groups. For example, reading a book is good, but it pales in comparison to living it within a growing community of like-minded people. This is what LIFE is – a community of people who desire to improve personally and professionally with the ability to own a home based business if so inclined.

What leadership materials does LIFE offer?

The LIFE series offers life skill Family, Fitness, Freedom, Fun, Friends, and Finances. This a monthly subscription oF: 4 CDs and a book for $50. YOU heard it right Fifty bucks! Why so low? Because LIFE wants to reach people that the rest of the leadership field ignores. How many people can afford thousand of dollar seminars and multiple hundred dollar CD packs?

The Following category is served through the Launching a Leadership Revolution subscription which includes: 4 CDs and a book for $50. Yup another steal! Everyone can afford to be part of LIFE and begin associating with people who are growing and advancing.

Furthermore, for those interested in growing in the Faith F, the All Grace Outreach series. This is a non-denominational Biblical message and includes: 1 CD and 1 Book for $25. All corporate profits from the sale of this series goes to the All Grace Outreach charity to support numerous Christian charitable organizations.

Finally, LIFE coaching is by leaders with proven results within the community. LIFE believes that a certificate does not qualify someone for life coaching, but a life well lived does. Remember, in leadership, example isn’t everything; it’s the only thing. Based upon a person’s willingness to grow, they will receive mentoring at no additional cost, since everyone wins when the community grows.

When LIFE combines these four trends into the TEAM community which has weekly growth groups and a monthly seminar, we have a recipe for long-term success.

Why join LIFE?

Since a person cannot advance beyond his or her personal leadership ability, when his or her leadership improves, life improves. The bad news is that leadership across North America is in real trouble, with government debt rising, companies struggling, jobs melting away, and character in decline in nearly every profession.

The good news, however, is that LIFE is a plan to restore character based leadership at the grass roots level. Instead of waiting for politicians to fix the mess, let’s develop our leadership and fix it ourselves. Imagine a business where you are paid to improve yourself and others? Crazy but true? Life has thousand of satisfied customers and members. Check out one of our leadership groups for yourself and see the LIFE difference.

How do I build LIFE?

When a person joins LIFE, he joins a leadership growth group (LGG). Leaders who have more experience and results help get you started by reading, listening, and associating. By attending the weekly LGG, you will learn from top leaders on principles for personal and professional success. For those who desire to go from being part of the community to a group leader, they can start their own home-based business. In order to become a leader, one must first be an apprentice and learn how to lead one of the growth groups.

Here is how LIFE and TEAM break down to help a person take advantage of the four industries:

1. LIFE teaches leadership and personal development

2. Team teaches community building principles

Where does LIFE meet?

Because LIFE is home-based, we start in people’s homes. Bigger meetings are in hotels conference rooms and the larger meetings fill stadiums across America. Leadership growth groups join together for larger monthly seminars which combine several times a year for major conventions.

FRIENDS and FUN!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Two of LIFE’s 8 F’s is FRIENDS and FUN!

Over the holidays Beth and I have had the privilege to spend time with our business partners and friends in St. Pete Beach, Florida.  We spent time laughing, sharing funny stories, reflecting back over the past year and strategizing for the new year.  Those awesome people were Denny and Donna Smith, Mike and Lynnette Parr, (and son Brayden), Tony and Sharon Hoffman, (and daughters Maile and Madison), and Kolynn and Lynn Kelly.  It was the first time we have ever celebrated the new year on the beach.  With the 75-80 degree weather, sunny days with powder-like sand… it was a grand way to relax, re-charge, sharpen the ax (lots of reading) and get ready for an awesome 2012!  Being from Pennsylvania, the vitamin D really felt good!

As LIFE continues to grow, and as I meet with more and more people and companies… I’m finding with the economic climate FUN and FRIENDS is something that people really need to work on.  Many times executives express the opinion that business owners and executives are under so much stress that they don’t have fun.  With trying to meet quotas, keep stock-holders happy, board of directors… going to work in the dark and coming home in the dark, conflict, turn-over, etc… these executives go home many times so stressed they shut down and in-turn cause relationship issues with family.

Executives absolutely love the holistic approach to improving LIFE in all areas because all areas are inner-woven.  If you are having problems at work, it can affect relationships at home, and vice-versa.

Having a master-mind group of trusted friends, (like the ones listed above) is also extremely important.  It provides a safe environment so that you can share thoughts, ideas, and gain perspective and not feel like you are being judged.  This also provides much-needed accountability which keeps you on track and allows for continuous course correction and adjustment.

Find trusted friends and create times of fun in 2012.  Work hard, Play hard!

Sincerely,

Dave Ober

Mentorship is key to a significant LIFE!

Mentorship is key to a significant LIFE!

Recently my wife and I spent the weekend in Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia.  This 10,000 sq. ft. lake house that sits on a peninsula as part of 500 miles of like front properties was a breath-taking experience.  Owned by one of our Mentors, Denny and Donna Smith…this estate/home is designed so that all rooms have a water front view.  Our suite had a private balcony that had a magnificent view.  The leafs were in peak season.  My wife and I were reminded again of our great God and His awesome splendor of His creation.  The cool mornings and evenings and warm afternoons were filled with special memories.  This retreat was so special because we got to spend it with many of our LIFEBusiness partners and mentors.

The LIFE experiences and mentorship of ORRIN WOODWARD, GREG JOHNSON, DENNY SMITH,

MIKE PARR, and TONY HOFFMAN has been priceless.  Gaining respect from these men is something that is very important to me.  Experience is not the best teacher; other people’s experience is the best teacher.  Seeking counsel from men of this caliber is key.  These are all men that have the ‘fruit on the tree’ and have real-life experiences to provide that credible mentorship.  Men of principle-based character and integrity that help you gain perspective in all areas of LIFE.  TODAY, I HONOR THESE MEN AND THANK THEM FOR THE SIGNIFICANT ROLE THAT EACH ONE CONTRIBUTES TO MY LIFE.  I thank God every day for bringing these men into my life.  Without these men who provide mid-course correction, feedback, accountability, perspective, etc., I’m not sure where I would be.  May everyone who reads this post find great leaders in their life as I did.  Sincerely, Dave Ober
