I remember thinking that people who got involved in home-based, word-of-mouth businesses were dupes. They were using the false promises of a fake business to fill an empty void of underachievement in their lives. They weren’t in a “real” business, I thought, they were merely deluding themselves.
Then, because of the personal credibility of an old acquaintance, Orrin Woodward, I eventually got involved myself. I was full of hopes and aspirations, sure that I had been wrong before about my predispositions about the industry. But over time I discovered that many of my negative ideas had been correct. There were certainly some great aspects to the networking profession, but there were also many, many things that needed to be fixed.
On November 1st of 2011 the LIFE business launched, in large part to address those “things” Orrin Woodward and I (and many others, including Tim Marks, Claude Hamilton, Bill Lewis, George Guzzardo, and Dan Hawkins) felt deep in our hearts had to be changed. In short, we wanted to address the concerns we had about the industry by launching a company that would seek as its highest ideal the fulfillment of the potential inherent in the concept, without any of the baggage of meagre pay plans, corporate “breakages,” and an outrageous “effort to reward” ratio.
Today, December 20, 2011, the first round of monthly bonus payments went out to LIFE members across North America, just in time for the holidays. Thousands and thousands of people are making money and finding themselves profitable in their first month in business. I guess this means that it’s not a “real” business, after all, because that could almost never happen in a conventional setting, with overhead and employees and rent and fixtures and the like. But it is a “real” chance, and we are delighted to have the first month under our belts. We congratulate those of you who have already joined us on this journey and commend your efforts so far. This first month and the payment of bonuses to members represents the completion of one little circle on the way to the overall dream. And it is just the beginning!
Its a good day & a great LIFE! Thanks for leading!
I have received texts from LIFE members FIRED UP with their first month’s bonus!
I remember as a kid we would say “I have a real job now because I made real money”.
I guess if you make money and have a real job, then likewise if you’re in business and make money it means you have a real business.
Well it’s been quite a month! Thanks for reminding us that hard work and determination does pay off. Looking forward to a successful 2012!

This LIFE business is amazing to me! The first month in this business and we are already making more than we did in a different company after being involved there for more than 3 years! We also happened to have had a larger group in that old business than we do now in life!!!! I cannot wait to see how the next pay check will look like! Thank you Chris and the PC for your vision.
