In the early 2000’s Beth and I had met some people that were in business and expanding.  It wasn’t anything I was familiar with or qualified for.  They were building communities of people that products flowed through.  Made sense to me.  Beth and I started our learning journey.  Many times we felt out of place and like nobody was understanding us.  We stayed the coarse and pushed on, and doors started to open.  I am attaching a video of a guy dancing that i think explains how it go’s when you decide to do something out of the ordinary.  I love what we do, it has evolved into an amazing machine that I am more excited about today than when we originally ever started.

Today May 28th, marks 11 years since I walked away from my job and decided to bet on myself and my efforts.  I used to have more confidence in my boss than I did in myself, then I realized that I am the artist drawing the picture of my future.  I have had so much fun with my wife and kids in the last 11 years, it has been priceless.  Not once did I ever say, “Man I wish I had a job again.” To this day, not many people understand why we dance, but many that see us from a distance know that we have fun doing it. Now I get to tell people that what I do for a living is help people get free from the financial matrix and run a successful business if they so choose.

There are so many people like the guy in this video that start dancing, and doing something that not everyone will understand, and they quit dancing to soon and say dancing is stupid.  I did this blog today to encourage those that may be dancing alone right now. Keep on dancing, as long as you’re having fun and believe in what you are doing, others will join.  Leading isn’t easy and in whatever capacity you are leading (dancing) keep it up, the world already has enough people that won’t, we need more that will.

As George Clooney said in the end of Tomorrowland “Go out and find the ones that haven’t given up, they’re the future.”

Dreamers need to hang with other dreamers. Surround yourself with others that encourage you, your life will be so much better.

I hope that you dance your heart out,

I am posting this for all the people out there that have something amazing inside and fear has a grip on them.  So often people don’t take a chance when they could and the fear grows.

Orrin Woodward calls it “Goliath” and says that your Goliath will grow daily if you don’t kill it.  I believe the world needs “Goliath Killers.” Many years ago I surrounded myself with Goliath Killers.  It changed everything about how I think.  I used to spend a lot of time thinking about how I would fail and now I spend time planning how I will win.

I am attaching a video of a guy that killed his Goliath on a big stage.  I was so taken by the video I wanted to share it.  As I watched this video I had flashbacks of all of the times I have been overwhelmed by fear and I ran at it.  It is not natural to want to attack fear.  I understood how he felt in the moment.  The fact is that, when he finished his performance, he will never think the same ever again.  He filled out an application 5 yrs in a row to be on this show and each year he ripped it up.  People told him that he would just embarrass himself by going on there.

Stories like this make me so happy because he knows how to defeat fear now.

My prayer for you is that you will find the courage to attack whatever it is that you’re afraid of and find out what GOD put you here for. Leave a comment about a fear victory that you have had.

Mark and Laurie Tallio just got back from their FREE trip from LIFE Leadership.  The travel agents were very helpful and let them do a customized trip to Arizona because they have family there.  Mark and Laurie are a great couple and we are glad they were able to earn this trip through the LIFE Leadership company.  Laurie has been a dominate force in building these communities.  She has been strong on this journey when we were going through a bunch of changes.  I really appreciate her determination and professionalism,  she is a real blessing to a lot of people.  jeep tour

Laurie sent me this as a recap of their trip:

We were able to take our six for six trip through LIFE Leadership in January.  Getting notification from the Office and then receiving a call from the travel agent is pretty exciting!  Elisabeth, our travel agent, was wonderful.  Costa Rica was my dream location, but time with my grandson that I hadn’t seen in 14 months was way more important and my real dream.  Elisabeth was so patient as we talked through the possibilities, but ultimately, she said this is your trip and if you want to go someplace that travel agents deal with frequently, we can do that. So …. off to Arizona, temps in the low 70’s, a poolside room with a sliding glass door to the outdoor patio area with heated pool and hot tub …. a blast for my grandson.  Four wheel jeep riding over the red rock country in Sedona (we brought his little buddy and they were wide eyed the whole time), a trip to a wild west town where Trevin could ride a burro and pan for gold, days of bike riding in state parks and on the irrigation canal trail system, mini golf (using the rules of a four and a half year old), all culminating in a trip to Sky Dive America (no, we did not take a four and a half year old sky diving!).  Here they have a tunnel with 160 mile hour winds, allowing you to experience weightlessness and free falling – what an amazing experience!  As his parents and my husband had all gone sky diving in the past, this one was for Trevin and I. Trevin was nervous, but so proud afterwards, and I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face (but sky diving is still not on my bucket list)!  My favorite memory ….. “Grandma, you can live here all the time if you want”.  THANK YOU LIFE Leadership for awarding us with a trip early in our LIFE journey, and thank you to Elisabeth for hearing my heart!

I hope as a reader, you realize that a FREE Trip like this could be earned by you also.

Beth and I are so proud of this couple and what they have achieved.  They are doing a great job of developing others and building a community.  They sent me a write up about their trip and I thought I would put it on here to share with the rest of you.  This couple is a great example of what people should be like.  They are great servants and love helping people.210115383

Teresa and I choose the Sandals Grande Riviera resort in Jamaica for our vacation earned through the Life Leadership co.  With four vacation destinations to choose from, we had a hard time deciding which one to take. Elisabeth, the travel agent, was great about asking questions to help us discern which vacation was right for us. 

 We have never had an opportunity like this before.  There is something about “FREE” that makes it very unique and special. When all the arrangements are made and everything is paid for, it created the freedom to just sit back, relax, focus on one another and marvel at all of God’s beauty that surrounded the resort.  

 Sailing on the small sail boats was one of our favorite things to do each day. I joked that we should sail all the way to Cuba and back. However, after going out a few miles and starting to lose sight of land, Teresa said it was an idea just not a good one.  We had a great laugh! 

 I would say eating must have rated right up there with sailing because we ate five times a day.  It’s amazing how much of an appetite you can work up with a rigorous daily regiment of walks on the beach, dips in the ocean and reading A Month of  Italy by Chris Brady and The Magic of Thinking Big by David Schwartz in a hammock under a palm tree. Actually to be more truthful the portions were just the right size to pull this off without feeling “stuffed” all day.  The food was absolutely wonderful! 

The thing I have missed the most after coming home was the housekeeper who would tidy up our little cottage every time we would leave. We sure wish we had one of those at home! (Dream solidified!) The care and friendliness of the entire staff at Sandals was great. They made you feel like royalty, as if we were the only ones there that mattered to them. 

 In closing, we would like to thank Steve and Beth Morgan and all our Band of Brothers family who have always lead the way and never stopped believing in us. We also want to thank the Life Leadership Co. and its founders for creating an opportunity for anyone who just wants a shot at life like Teresa and I. Like Orrin Woodward says: It’s not easy but it is worth it and this vacation was a much needed rest stop on the road to achieving more of our dreams. God Bless!

Success is a choice,  and if you are looking for something for nothing, this will not be the Business for you.  It is a business after all. When people go to college, many times they go into a field and don’t know anyone that is in that field.  Now don’t get me wrong, I am not against education, I’m against people being painted in a corner and not having a way to get a job in their field after graduating.  So at best, they are guessing on how they want to spend the rest of their lives.  Now using college as an example, lets run it through the LIFE Business is a Scam filter.

If I enrolled in college and never went to class,  was college a scam? No

If I went to class but never studied and failed, was it a scam? No

If I tried hard and didn’t get a 4.0, but used the info in my life moving forward and my thinking was shaped for ever, was it a scam? No

If someone goes to college and spends a bunch of money, and doesn’t take it serious, it doesn’t mean the college was a scam.  It means the person shouldn’t have wasted the colleges reputation.

I do think that college is highly over priced.  Many people get stuck in huge student loans that they can never pay off.  I heard a statistic the other day that College tuition is inflated 500% since the 1990’s.

When someone comes to a LIFE event they get to meet people that are succeeding at the program they are going to get involved in.  Just like anything that someone wants to be a professional at, they are going to invest time and money to master whatever program they choose. LIFE Leadership is no different in that area.  When people get involved they are staring a BUSINESS and taking on some new responsibilities.  When you make that commitment, you are taking a chance that you aren’t going to give yourself YOUR best effort.  Remember, YOU started a business.

I think its funny that someone can join our company for around $100 and someone is going to help them.  I, many years ago, could have started disparaging the people online that didn’t come through on their end.  What I mean is that they didn’t try as hard as they said they would.  Instead I decided to keep moving forward and find people that would do what they said they would.

Questions to ask someone that says LIFE Leadership can’t or won’t work.

1. Do they understand how team approach works?

Team Approach is a business building style where we all work together to build a common and consistent market flow of products made up of other business partners and customers that they connect with.  Also with team approach you build with people that are brought into the community and you probably didn’t even know them before you got started. The fact that you can benefit from marketshare that you personally didn’t produce, that is pretty amazing.

2. How many meetings have they attended and what was their activity level?

– Most of the time they haven’t came to much and if they did, they were really bad students.

This one is funny because people tend to see themselves as very committed.  (A crooked line doesn’t know it’s crooked until compared to a straight line.)

3. How many times did they go Power Player and Go Getter?

4. How can they say it won’t work when it is working for so many?

Maybe they, like many, don’t want to do the work.

5. Do they know that the Founders are field leaders?  Which means they don’t get a special deal and pay each month.  They get paid the same way as everyone else in the field.

6. Have they ever owned a conventional business before?

People that own conventional business’s usually understand the cost of doing business.  LIFE Leadership is a very cheap business to own and operate.

I know the Pyramid thing comes up many times.  Also I know that most networking companies have done some really goofy things over the years.

In a pyramid- you can’t make more $ than the person that brought you in, you don’t really have a product, and you make $ on the process of signing up people.

The intentions of the Founders of the LIFE Leadership Company were to run a legitimate business that would last longer than them.  If you see how LIFE Leadership builds teams, and you are motivated, you will love it.  The LIFE Leadership Company looks to find the performers and pay them.

So as I said at the beginning of the article, “If you are looking for something for nothing, this is not for you.”   Life Leadership, just like any business, is going to take some effort,time, & money.  The results you get here are where the difference is.  It’s a way to finally get your time spent at something to pay you more than once.  In almost all small business, the owner is the magic.   In LIFE Leadership the System is the Magic.

Another couple that went on a FREE trip through the LIFE Leadership company was Jon and Heather Groves.  They are awesome friends, family and leaders to many.  We were so excited when they told us about earning this vacation and getting the call from the travel agent.  I asked them to send us a little recap of how this trip was and what others can expect to get when they go.

Here is what they had to say:Groves Family Disney Trip

It’s the trip you’ve always wished you could take with your family but couldn’t quite pull off. Instead of eating snack bars and pb&j’s stuffed in a backpack for the day, you actually go to all of those restaurants you told your kids to not even think about the first time around. With a simple signature on the bill you’re off to enjoy more sights and rides. The travel agent is extremely helpful with all of the details and investigating all of the options that you could want. We stayed an extra night at the resort the day/ night before the park tickets so we could take some time to relax after the trip and enjoy the amazing features of the hotel resort itself. A day and evening at one of the many pools does the trick. A bonus of actually staying at
the resort at Disney is that you have Extra Magic Hours available to you and your family at all of the parks. Some are in the morning and some after regular close time hours. These are hours that the park either opens early or stays open late specifically for those staying in a Disney resort hotel. There are significantly less people in the parks at these times and you are able to ride your favorite rides or see your favorite sights without lines or crowds. Two of our favorite dining experiences were the Crystal palace in the Magic Kingdom where the characters come and greet you at your table and pose for pictures. It’s an amazing buffet so you just keep eating until you’re stuffed. The second favorite is the French restaurant in Epcot where our bill totaled over $200 and all we has to do was sign our name and say thanks. Gourmet food for a signature, that’s what I call a dream. The kids loved the “Yeti ride” in Animal Kingdom, Space Mountain in Magic
Kingdom and the Tower of Terror at Hollywood Studios. We all loved Soarin’ at Epcot and where most people are lucky to ride once we were able to ride 4 different times over our stay. We frequented the Haunted Mansion and were even privileged to go in the middle of the night during Extra Magic hours which is an entirely new experience. Talk about creepy. Kiley loved our room at the resort, the food, and the “Yeti” ride was her favorite. I don’t think she actually finished
one meal there was so much food. Shad was most impressed by the food. His favorite restaurant was the buffet in Africa at Animal Kingdom with its assortment of new and unique foods. As a growing teenage boy, the food was key. He says what he loved most was just spending time together as a family. Maddi loved the Crystal palace buffet and the Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor in magic Kingdom. For Jon and I, being able to earn a dream trip like this for our kids was the best part. It’s all about the memories. Jon and Heather Groves

Leave a comment and let us know where you would go for free.

Costa Rica, Oasis of the Seas Cruise, Disney or Jamaica.

Congrats again to Jon and Heather for earning this FREE trip, you deserved it.

I remember meeting Ed for the 1st time when we were buying our house.  He was the inspector that came to check the house out for us.  Today we are great friends with him and Tina.  They are a great couple and very powerful in a leadership role.  They earned this trip by doing the work, Beth and I were so excited for them to go on it.

Here is a Summary of the Trip and what it felt like to take a free 7 day trip:

 
 
Our family recently returned from our 6 for 6 trip and our overall feeling was “awesome”! Keep in mind that our family had NEVER taken a weeks vacation. We had always snuck in a couple of fun days with a work trip here or there or taken a long weekend, but never gone 7 days without working. So, to say the least, we were pumped!
 SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES
We chose to go to Disney World after some debate of the cruise. It ended up being the perfect choice for us. The travel agent that called us was very friendly and helpful and made many helpful suggestions that made it even better. We were able to get a 7 day stay at the Pop Century Resort on the Disney property, with tickets to all the Disney Parks, a bunch of discount coupons, a family meal plan, and air travel for our allowance.
 
The week was amazing! We had great weather (it was in the 70’s all week), went to every park, including a night at Downtown Disney, and had a day that we stayed at the resort and relaxed by the pool most of the day. Everyone had a favorite ride or park or show but we were all in agreement that the best part of the week was truly spending the whole entire week together. My best memory was that at one point or another, I got to spend quality time and hold hands with both of my kids and my wife and really re-engage with all of them. It truly made us see that being free is achievable for us and that our taste of freedom makes us want to run harder to qualify for the next trip and earn our freedom.
 
We want to thank Steve & Beth  Morgan for being our  mentors and friends and for introducing us to this fabulous business! We also want to thank all the other Band of Brothers for their support and example.  We are truly blessed to be where we are and would encourage everyone to run faster the chase their dreams and earn this trip. It will be LIFE changing!
 
Beth and I have so much fun talking to all of the trip qualifiers after they get back, we love to hear about all of the dreams come true.
 
What trip are you gonna earn?
