    It is excellent to see not only internal validation from all the growth of Orrin’s organizations, but also external validation from other top leaders who see results in what we are doing! Truly excited to continue sharing this with people!!

    We all knew Orrin was number one! It just took others a bit longer to see it!! Congratulations to Orrin and to everyone in the LIFE Team! We are all blessed because of the commitment Orrin has made – and continues to make to read, learn, study, grow, write, speak, and share his leadership knowledge with us and the world.

    I am so fired up to be part of LIFE and TEAM! We can only imagine the thousands of hours Orrin has sacrificed (on our behalf) to earn this much deserved award! Congratulations to Orrin and the other Founders who will soon rank in the top 30 list also!

    Well deserved award. What credibility! How can you argue with #1. You set the example Orrin and we are able to each become leaders in our groups. One person multiplied by others over and over leads to a group that will just explode. I believe that the good Lord is smiling down on this organization because of the integrity, belief, pesistance, tenacity and servant leadership shown to us by Orrin.
    I am very proud to be on this winning team. “Everyone is called upon to lead in some capacity sooner or later in life.” My word for the new year is action; that is what I see when I hear of all the growth and
    development that is happening. Welcome to LIFE in 2012
