Orrin Woodward is an internationally celebrated New York Times bestselling author
and a recognized leader in team leadership, success coaching, and executive management
training. As such, he is a much sought after motivational speaker.
As a natural leader, Orrin noticed that communities are suffering and are no longer
safely anchored to solid principles. Concerned that our nation’s communities are
beginning to drift without a clearly defined, principle-based focus, Orrin co-founded
the LIFE business.
LIFE fosters the leader-led development of businesses by bringing together four
financially successful industries: Home-Based Businesses, Personal Development,
Life Coaching, and Community Building.
Systematically crafted around eight main categories (the 8Fs: Faith, Family, Friendship,
Freedom, Finances, Fitness, Following, and Fun), the LIFE business aims to help
communities and individuals grow and achieve.
Orrin’s and LIFE’s goal is to help one million people effectively change their lives
Early in his career, Orrin recognized any business not built on a solid, purpose-focused
foundation of true principles is doomed to failure. However, a purpose-driven business

Therefore, Orrin and LIFE’s stated purpose is to change lives by helping individuals
grow into purpose-driven leaders as they grow successful community-based businesses.
Co-Founder of LIFE: As a co-founder of LIFE, Orrin is committed
to bringing lasting,
personal change into the lives of thousands of families. By providing timeless truth
and education in each of the 8Fs of LIFE (Faith, Family, Friends, Freedom, Finances,
Fitness, Following, and Fun) in entertaining, interesting, and personal ways, he
is helping to change lives for the better.
The LIFE business is not only an effective way to rekindle hope and learn to dream
again, it’s also an amazing business opportunity that’s experiencing tremendous
