Milton Friedman and the Great Depression Myth

Happy Tax Day, everyone! Having just signed over a decent chunk of change to the government today, my mind is quite fixed on the economy and money right now. Unfortunately, I’m about as far from an economic expert as one can get. I’ve read enough to be able to read about and not scratch my […]

Why Are You Waiting?

Years ago, I bought a book on how to be more proactive and stop putting tasks off for later. Staring at the book on my desk now, I hope the universe likes irony, because I still haven’t gotten around to reading it. Sometimes, it makes me laugh. Other times, when I really let myself think […]

LIFE Business Compensation Plan

Originally posted on Claude Hamilton:

American Polarization: The Rise of Tyranny

Every election year, the line that separates the Right from the Left gets wider and less forgiving. If anyone in a pair, group, or crowd happens to identify with an opposing political label, the fireworks begin. (Or that person just gets the cold shoulder, the disapproving/sympathetic look.) But as I’ve listened over the years to […]

Claude Hamilton on Attitude

Orrin Woodward, LIFE founder and number 7 leadership guru, recently posted an article celebrating the success of one of my absolute most favorite people: Claude Hamilton.

What Have You Been Reading?

Confession time: I’ve always been somewhat of a geek. Not only have I always looked the part (I’ve been wearing glass since I was 3), I was that kid who actually asked my teacher for extra homework. I would do math problems for fun, practice cursive before they taught it in class, and always had […]

So Really, Why Should I Study History?

“Time has shown none understand The course of history’s well-laid plans.” Raise your hand if you hated history class in school. If I polled any of my peers, most of their hands would certainly shoot up. It wasn’t my favorite subject by any means. And why is that? While everyone seems to acknowledged the validity […]

The LIFE Business: The Education We Should Have Had

A leadership mastermind and co-founder of LIFE, Orrin Woodward is changing the world one life at a time. How? Through education. Or more specifically, a leadership education. Types of Education In his book A Thomas Jefferson Education, Oliver DeMille writes about three types of education: Conveyor Belt Found in public schools, private or charter schools, […]

Claude and Lana Hamilton – LIFE Founders

Leadership expert Orrin Woodward recently posted on article on two of the LIFE business founders- Claude and Lana Hamilton. I loved it so much that I’m re-posting it here. Claude and Lana are a couple of the most inspiring leaders I’ve ever met. Every time I’ve had the privilege to be around them and learn […]

The Speed of Trust and the 4 Cores of Credibility

In a previous article I wrote, “Is Orrin Woodward Scamming People?”, one of the questions I recommended asking before determining whether or not you’re facing a scam was “Is my source credible?”. (Dan Hawkins, a leadership expert and co-founder of LIFE, also has a great post about this.) That got me thinking on the topic […]
