When I look back over the past five years of my LIFE it is still hard to believe the changes that have taken place. Five short years ago, I was graduating from university and thought I was going to excel at this thing called LIFE. When I got into the “Real World,” I quickly realized it wasn’t all it was cut out to be. I was told as a young boy to finish high school, go to university and then find a great company to work for, with benefits, and I would be set. This is exactly what I did. I took a job working for a Fortune 500 photocopier company and figured within a year I would be living the good life.
Sadly to say, everything went downhill after that. I took everything I had learned thus far in my life and started going into debt–fast. I started living by the all too common rules of today, “Your Richer Then You Think,” “Ho-Ho-Hold the Payments,” “Borrow to Get Ahead”. Student loans started to pile up, with all my payments reaching over $900 dollars a month. After six months of going backwards $1,500 to $2,000, I had began to start losing hope that it was ever going to get any better.
Then one faithful night, I received a call from my sister offering an opportunity to gain control over my life again. I had no clue what she was talking about but was willing to do almost anything for a change. A couple of days later, Claude Hamilton came into my life. He sat down with me and began to draw out a way to regain control of my life by concentrating on eight main areas called the 8F’s: Faith, Family, Finance, Fitness, Following, Freedom, Friends, and Fun. At first, I must say it all sounded too good to be true but then he started to give me information in those areas and everything began to change.

I went from living for the weekend to living a life for excellence. It was amazing to see things that I had learned in university become outdated as fast as it took me to graduate. I have learned more in the last four years about how the world works, people skills, freedom and purpose in life then I did in the first 25 years put together. I am so glad I got introduced to the LIFE Leadership Company. Through the principles, teaching and mentorship from Claude Hamilton and Orrin Woodward a lot has changed. In the last three years, I got married to the woman of my dreams, had three amazing children and was able to regain control of my time, walking away from my day job after 23 months of studying and applying the principles from this amazing Life Leadership business.
I am writing this blog for anyone who is tired of ‘living for the weekend’, ‘living paycheque-to-paycheque’, ‘mediocrity’ and who wants to gain some information on how to live a more prosperous life in the 8F’s. Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady are in the Top 15 Leadership Guru’s in the world, best selling author’s and have developed this system called Team and LIFE along with Tim Marks, Claude Hamilton, George Guzzardo, Bill Lewis, and Dan Hawkins. All of the information provided in this blog will come from this Leadership and Life training system. I have never claimed to be an expert in any field and I certainly am not here either, all I am striving to be is the best possible student I can be. I hope the information shared here will be a blessing in people’s lives as much as it has been in mine.
All the best in LIFE,
