I've been in the community building profession in some way or another for 10 years. And throughout that entire journey, my mom, Susan Militello has had a front row seat. Now, a customer of LIFE herself, she has had the unique opportunity to experience our company from the inside out, and her honest evaluation of our company is priceless.
You see, before my mom was a customer of LIFE, she knew I was a student of personal development, so she started to buy products from Jim Rohn and others in the profession, to start on the personal development journey herself. She really liked what she was listening to, and she knew it was making a difference in her life.
When LIFE launched, she decided to become a customer of our Life Series as well. She told me the other day, that at first she thought the information was good, but she admitted the cds were a little difficult to adjust to because she had become accustomed to the smooth, polished speeches from the other materials she was buying. But that all changed the other day when she told me, with such excitement, that she finally realizes the TEAM/LIFE difference and how special what we have really is!
"The people on the cds, these are REAL people!"
She went on to explain, "I bet that's why people love this information. "The people who struggled are up there, and they are just like me! They've struggled and I've struggled." And I love what she said next, "That's the winner thing about this. It's very real! They get me and I get them. It's a whole a different experience."
She gets it! That IS what makes what we do special. No one gets on stage because they have a polished speech. The TEAM/LIFE stage is reserved for those individuals who have built a successful business and have wisdom- THROUGH EXPERIENCE-about what he or she is teaching. That is the win. We do get each other, and we do learn from each other's struggles! Like Orrin Woodward always says, "Other people's experience is the best teacher!" I can't think of another organization in the world that offers what we have.
I believe I have the best profession and purpose in the world because it makes a difference in my life and the lives of those I love the most: My family and friends. TEAM/LIFE is the greatest blessing. Thankful God chose this journey for me.
