Mark and Rita Haas
Mark and Rita Haas used to run a supermarket refrigeration, engineering and maintenance business. They are very average people willing to work hard to provide for the important and eternal things for their family. Mark’s academic background is electrical engineering. Before the Life Business, He worked 80 to 90 hours a week average in order that Rita could be a stay at home mom. They knew nothing about systematic success in the areas of business, so Mark Had been through the school of “Hard Knocks” when it came to business partners and running business. Mark was very “rough around the edges” when it came to people skills and Rita was very introverted and shy
They were time starved, relationship starved, and Faith starved. From the Life business, they have been so blessed to have learned so much in the areas of the 8Fs (Faith, Family, Following, Finance, Freedom, Friends, Fun, Fitness). In addition, Mark and Rita now understand the importance of learning from others who have results instead of figuring it on their own or following someone else’s “Good (but unproved) Idea”
Faith and family are the most important to them. Mark and Rita now enjoy plenty of time at home with 5 Children 10 and under and one in college. The Team and LIFE has helped them discover TRUTH in Marriage, parenting and their worldview. The Life business has helped them relate to people as they speak in front of thousands of people on stages around North America. In addition, their information on Leadership, Business and Relationships is distributed in audio format to tens of thousands of people.
They hope that they may be able to share with you recommendations, perspective, or experiences either they have experienced through the life changing materials with the organization called the TEAM and It’s business called LIFE. Please check out their entire story. They want it to humbly be an example for you as to what is possible with your LIFE and how great and capable your creator made you and that he expects you to be the light and salt of the earth.
Chris and Marcia Robinson
Chris and Marcia Robinson were prepared to work hard their entire life. Raised in the country, these “farm kids” saw first hand that a day’s work is never done. Upon graduation from high school, they sought relief from the physical labor associated with the farm life by attending university. Chris studied aviation and photography while Marcia pursued a degree in education. After college, Chris worked as a Journeyman carpenter, at the same time trying to get his photography company up and running. Marcia went to work as an elementary school teacher. When their first child was born, Marcia left teaching to become a stay-at-home mom. By this time, the photography business was booming, and Chris asked Marcia to assist him in that endeavor.
Burning the candle at both ends, they quickly realized that although the type of work had changed, the axiom remained the same, “a day’s work was never done.” Chris was working an average of 75 hours a week. Marcia was balancing her full time position at the portrait studio and raising their growing family. They were introduced to an organization called the Team. The Team helped them to start living their priorities instead of their obligations. By applying the success principles taught in the LIFE leadership materials, they are no longer slave to their self-managed portrait business. Marcia is now blessed to home school their seven children.
Through the LIFE business, they have been honored to work with leaders like Mark and Rita Haas and Chris and Terri Brady. They have been able to learn and apply principles in the areas of the 8Fs (Faith, Family, Freedom, Following, Finance, Friends, Fitness, and Fun) that have literally changed their lives. Chris and Marcia are most grateful for how the LIFE materials have strengthened their spiritual life and marriage and family relationships, as well as increased their understanding of leadership education and appreciation and respect for the freedom they took for granted living in the United States of America. They feel personally responsible for the future of the family in this country and have dedicated their lives to spreading TRUTH in the areas of the 8Fs.
Tyler grew up on a farm and was around heavy equipment his whole life, in a town of couple hundred people. The only thing he knew was to work hard, play sports, never quit, listen to your coach, go to school, and hope for the best. With home town and college critiques he played baseball at a Division II University that was consistently in the Top 25 in the country, and went into teaching. He had the less than perfect education, never reading a book but still graduating. Treating people poorly, having debt, no Faith life, watching T.V. and frequenting the bars was his daily routine. It’s the American way, right…..?
Who would have dreamed of learning from people that had the results that you would want in LIFE then go do what they did. That’s why so many people give much of the credit to Chris Brady and Orrin Woodward for paving the way to change this country and put it back on its feet through thinking better in a Godly way.
Tyler felt like the difference he was making teaching and coaching was not making a big enough dent. There was always a void like something was missing. Surely there was something more out there. After a best friend, mentor, and coach’s sudden death, life had new meaning. Through this tragedy, the little voice that was always inside saying to stand up and do something great and of significant value started to get a lot stronger. At that very time was when Jason and Josh Dames guided him into the number one Leadership Company in the world. Life has been forever changed and for the better.
Being tied into the number 7 and 12 leadership guru’s in the world, and having mentors in life that are best friends, has been life changing. The information has giving him correct worldviews in general, and specifically in Faith, Marriage, Money, Kids, True Freedom, American Foundation, Government, Purpose, Attitude, Fun, Women, and that one person can truly make a massive difference through the power of pure information in a duplicatable design. The biggest thing for people to understand when they step out to do something of eternal value is that they will be opposed and there will be critiques. Tyler’s favorite quote is, “Our greatest fear is not whether we will succeed, our greatest fear is whether or not we will succeed at something that matters.”
Scott & Angie Ballah
Scott and Angie both grew up in a small farm community where hard work and family were highly valued. After graduating high school, Scott went on to pursue and electrical engineering degree from the University of Illinois while Angie completed a Bachelors in nursing. When the time came to look for jobs in their chosen fields of study they found that there was a market saturation for nurses and engineers. Scott then worked as an electrician for a year before taking a position that required a two-hour one way commute. Determined to work as an RN, Angie also commuted an hour one-way to work. Since they believed in hard work and determination these choices seemed logical at the time.
When Scott and Angie decided to start a family they quickly learned they felt strapped for time. Even though they had both found jobs locally by that time, it seemed work overshadowed the time they wanted to spend with their children. Angie had the privilege of growing up in a home where her mother stayed home. This experience made the idea of being a stay at home mom a top priority for their family!
A major turning point in the Ballahs’ life was being introduced to the Team and LIFE organizations. The principles that are taught and caught through the system and the leadership of TEAM and LIFE have allowed the Ballah family to make changes in their lives that allowed them to live their priorities of making faith and family first in life. The concept of intentionally studying and becoming better in what LIFE calls the 8 F’s (Faith, Family, Fitness, Finance, Following, Freedom, Friends, and Fun) has allowed them to change their path in life through changing the thinking that kept them tied to obligations in the past. Having the privilege of working with leaders like the Haas’ and Brady’s has inspired the Ballahs’ to follow their example of making a difference for families all across North America.
Josh & Annie Dames
Working 80-90 hours a week, Josh and Annie were no strangers to hard work. Josh was working a full time job during the day, and then working for their self-employed grading company during the nights and weekends. Annie had gone to college for business, and entered the work force as a secretary. She was able to come home after having their first child and help Josh with their business. With Josh’s strong work ethic, they were getting a big customer base and their company was beginning to thrive. They were getting ready to go full time with their company when they were approached with the Team.
From the outside, and to everyone around them, it appeared that Josh and Annie were living the American dream. They had three kids, a new house, two brand new vehicles, a self employed business, and a ton of debt to prove it! What everyone else couldn’t see was that the bank owned them, and it was putting pressure on their home and family life. With no “extra” money, and absolutely no extra time, Josh saw the Team as a way to get it all back! Annie on the other hand didn’t see it that way, she thought it was going to be something else that was going to take more money and time away from their already hectic life.
With time, along with Josh’s vision and patience, Annie soon began to realize the impact the Team could have in her family and in our country! Their home has been transformed by the material and The 8 F’s that LIFE represents! They joined this business with the hope it would provide some extra money. What they didn’t see, was with the information along with the guidance and friendship of Mark and Rita Haas, this was going to improve their marriage, their relationship with their now four children, and their finances. They were able to shut down their grading business because of the principles they learned through the LIFE leadership materials.
They both always felt God had bigger plans for their life, that they were meant to do greater things, they just never had an outlet or the means to do so. They have found their purpose in the Team and with LIFE! Their lives have forever been transformed, and now they feel they owe it to our country to pay it forward!
Kevin & Emily Cobb
Kevin and Emily Cobb were both raised “farm kids” in small farming communities where it was common teaching that hard work would take you far in life. After graduation from college where he studied agricultural economics, Kevin returned home to farm the family farm with his father. He wuickly learned the “way of the farmer” by accumulating a large amount of debt by borrowing money to get started in the farming industry. Since a strong work ethic had been ingrained in his thinking, he supplemented his farming with another job in the world of construction and concrete. He was working full time construction and farming in the time that was left which caused conflict in their marriage. The time conflict combined with the financial stress of snowballing debt made for a very tense home environment.
After the birth of their first child, Kevin and Emily decided to do whatever was necessary for Emily to stay home with their child so Kevin gave up farming and self employment for a steady, dependable job and Emily entered the self employed world by opening a dance and gymnastics studio. They became strangers passing through their days; Kevin working days and Emily working evenings and they never saw each other. They were living the “American Dream” or so they were told. A poor marriage relationship, no team work in parenting, a large amount of debt, long working hours, and all those issues were picking up speed as they cartwheeled out of control.
Then came the Team and the LIFE business. The Team introduced Kevin and Emily to what was truly important in life. They learned through the mentorship of Chris and Marcia Robinson and Mark and Rita Haas, and through the information obtained through LIFE, many principles that, once applied, changed their family from the inside out. They learned principles in the areas of the 8 F’s that have allowed them to eliminate debt so that Emily could leave the self employed world to be a full time stay-at-home mom and homeschool their 3 children.
Through the LIFE business, their lives have been forever changed. Kevin and Emily are so eternally grateful for how the LIFE materials and information have given them a relationship with Christ instead of just “religion”, a marriage that gets stronger every day, and the reality of leaving a legacy for their children and being an example for their children of how to lead others to TRUTH.
Mike & Wendy Foran
Mike and Wendy grew up in different worlds but, as it always happens, young love brought them together. Mike joined the Navy, they left their homes, and immediately began the military life. It didn’t take long until they realized things weren’t going great. The time apart due to deployments, lack of family support, and financial pressure brought many problems. A move back home and trying something different seemed to be the answer. After different jobs and career paths it was time for something to change. Deciding to open up their own construction business seemed to be the answer. Being self employed caused just as many obstacles in their life. Mike being dedicated to give his family a better life worked many hours, and it never seemed to be enough.
