What You Don’t Know About LIFE Will Hurt You!

Posted by Ryan & Sarah Fronick on 22nd June 2012

Sarah1 What You Don’t Know About LIFE Will Hurt You!Raised on a farm, I am blessed to have parents who taught me the value of education and respecting an earned dollar through hard work.  I was always a serious student, and I learned how to get good grades, but what I enjoyed most were the leadership roles I had in student council, colorguard, and other organizations.  Learning how to inspire and serve others was exhilarating as we worked together toward our goals.  This is where I felt the most alive.  I had a strong desire to change the world, and I thought becoming a lawyer might be the answer.  

After a series of seemingly random events, I decided to go to Kansas State University to pursue a double major in Architecture and Architectural Engineering.  My advisor told me this seven-year dual-degree program was a combination of the most time-consuming degree and the second-most difficult degree.  Being choleric, I smugly accepted the challenge.  I made that decision at 17 years old, and I never looked back no matter how many people advised me otherwise over those seven years.  One of those people was my mom, who half-way through this program sent me a letter.  She added up all the years I had left until I had both licenses, and told me how old I would be.  She then asked me if I had considered how a marriage and family would fit into my plan.  I didn’t know.  I was so career-driven, that it hadn’t occurred to me the sacrifices I was blindly making in other areas of my life.  It would be several more years before I would realize this for myself.

The greatest blessing during college was meeting Ryan.  I immediately knew he was the one for me, though I didn’t think I deserved him.  He graduated before me, so we had a long-distance relationship for three years, and then the next year, I lived in Houston for a healthcare architecture fellowship.  The next year, we were married and decided to make St. Louis our home.  I got a great job at a well-known architecture firm and continued working in healthcare.  This was a very promising career track for me professionally, but it required a lot of travel and overtime. 

After a few years of this lifestyle, it finally began to occur to me that I wanted more than just a successful career, thanks to my husband’s leadership.  He saw more for us than what was defined by the lifestyle of two architects.  He began to dream about where and how we would live if we could choose.  I was reluctant to dream-build with him, because I didn’t know how we would put food on the table.  He said he didn’t know, but we would figure it out, and he started trying.  We explored options in real estate, inventions, and self-employed business ventures, to no avail.  We now know that the reason those weren’t successful, is because we were relying on information we already knew to make them work.  We didn’t know what we didn’t know, and it was hurting us.  

It wasn’t until we were reacquainted with my hometown friends, Brandon & Kristina Brazier, that we learned the answers lie in new information from people who have what we want in LIFE. Brandon showed Ryan the plan for the Team opportunity after he realized how dissatisfied we were in the rat race of corporate America.  Ryan tried to explain it to me, and I didn’t get it, but I trusted Brandon and Ryan’s judgment.  We went to a monthly seminar, and the rest is history.  We didn’t understand much about the business, but we knew that these were people who had what we wanted and they were willing to help us.  We saw how applicable this information could be in our personal and professional lives.  Being around the people in LIFE awoke in me the same exhilaration I had in high school leadership roles, mostly the love of learning how to truly make a difference.

Being career-driven, I had some things to learn from LIFE.  I didn’t know it was possible to earn my freedom and live my priorities instead of my obligations.  I didn’t know I could earn a living without having to separate how the Bible says I’m supposed to live my life.  I didn’t know the joy of making an eternal difference in other people’s lives by helping them with their marriage, parenting, faith, or finances.  I didn’t know how desperately this country needs freedom restored, and that I can help.  I didn’t know that retirement has nothing to do with age.  I didn’t know my purpose-the thrill of pursuing God’s definition of a woman of excellence.  I didn’t know how to be a wife of excellence.  I didn’t know the peace that comes from my husband being the spiritual leader of our home.  I didn’t know that being a mom is the most rewarding, challenging, fulfilling and significant career I could ever have, and thanks to our results in LIFE, I now have job security as a full-time mom!

My dream to change the world is coming true thanks to the LIFE business that Chris Brady & Orrin Woodward have designed and implemented.  We are grateful to the Braziers for introducing us to the Team’s systematic approach to a better LIFE, and for the coaching of Chris & Marcia Robinson and mentoring of Mark & Rita Haas in the areas of Faith, Family, Finances, Freedom, Following, Fitness, Fun and Friends.  Do yourself, your friends, and your family a favor and find out what you don’t know about LIFE!  Your legacy depends on it.

A business meeting on the back of a pick up truck changes one family’s financial future in several short years – THIS IS A MUST READ!

Posted by Mark Haas Jr on 7th October 2011

Is the world leading you astray?  Can you get new information, mentorship and leaderships skills for a LIFE purpose?

I was in a worldly paradigm and deep down knew something was not right.  Many people have this mindset; unfortunately their associations prevent them from gaining the courage to act or the wisdom to grow.  There has to be a solution for this gut feeling…

Seeing my parents divorce when I was 15 was an awakening.  I repeatedly said I would not have a girlfriend or get married because in my mind having a girlfriend ultimately led to a broken relationship and hatred.  However, deep down though something did not feel right.  There had to be a solution for this gut feeling…

I used to go out into my workshop and build things nightly to escape the daily grind.  One day I decided to turn my passion of woodworking into a business.  Over time I ended up with a gut feeling that the craft remain a hobby.  There had to be a solution for this gut feeling…

I would hang out with peers on a Friday night at local establishments and discuss superficial topics such as sports, women, and gossip.  I had this gut feeling that my time should be used more productively.  There had to be a solution for this gut feeling…

My wife gave me a bible 11 years ago.  I opened it only once from that time 8 years forward, primarily due to association and lack of purpose.  Then one of my good friends Brandon Brazier courageously stepped out on faith and showed me a business plan for personal growth on the back of a pickup truck.  Sounds strange doesn’t it?  He told me about Orrin Woodward and his leadership organization called the Team and Now what is being called Life.  Over the past several years I have been reading scripture, have found Christ, am developing my purpose and striving to be the best example of a Christian Husband, Father, Brother, Son, and Friend.  LIFE is the solution for this gut feeling…

Understanding my purpose has developed confidence.  When this passion was combined with a dream, hope began to fuel my desire to grow and develop.  A hunger to lead overthrew logic; my elephant began to steer the ant reframing the “self” perspective.  I can really notice a difference looking back over the past 6-9 months.

When somebody goes out and serves (1 Cor 2:4) their paradigm can only be transformed in a positive way.  Seeing friends who were originally negative and are now your best friends in this business, seeing a marriage destined for failure turn around over a 6 month period, seeing people edify you for your efforts/sacrifice; all these are wonderful examples of what the dear Lord has blessed me with through the LIFE business.  Here is the video of My wife retiring from her Job to be able to be a stay at home mom with our son Austin.  This would never have been possible with out the TEAM, Orrrin Woodward, Mark Haas, and the Leadership Skills we Learned from them.  It has changed out LIFE!
