Free Enterprise

The American Dream is not so much material things but the ability to think on our own, dream more, own more, and be all that we set out to accomplish! This identity of an American is deep rooted from our founding fathers and mothers. Kirk and I have been on a journey for some time now to rediscover what it means to be an American. We want others to understand free enterprise and the feeling one can have by becoming free again in one’s mind, work, and being.

What if you could not fail? What would you then set out to accomplish?

Why not become all that God created you to be? What would your life look like then?

Why now? What if today you were needed now more than ever to succeed and accomplish something great?

Business ownership is one of the very definitions of being an American. I highly recommend you start to understand the importance of entrepreneurship. Today more than ever we should be out of debt, free to own our time through business leverage, and out of bondage to the worlds picture of success.

The whole reason for business is because it fulfills a need. Here are some great examples:

A security company fulfills the need for people to have alarm systems where they feel secure. Do they make money from the individual’s household income? YES. It fills the need of the homeowner.

A printing company fulfills the need for people to have items printed as a service. Do they make money from the individuals income? YES. It fills the need of the individual.

A cable company fulfills the need for people to have media entertainment in their home. Do they make money from the individuals income? YES. It fills the need of the individual.

You get my point.

I believe you should own your own business. In today’s changing economy, it is wise to be on the receiving end of today’s businesses that fulfill the worlds needs. It is how the world works. If you do not position yourself on the receiving end where your own hard earned money will end up anyways, you will miss out on the amazing leverage you can create to own your own time, live out dreams, and most importantly be a free individual who is out of debt and on the receiving side!

There are many forms of business available. Here are three types: Traditional self-employed business that deals with a specific trade or service, franchise ownership where you buy an existing system, or a direct distribution system where you become apart of an existing business system.

The specific form of business I will discuss and highly recommend is a direct distribution system. This type of business has changed our lives dramatically. A home based business model is how a direct distribution system is ran. There are so many advantages to talk about that I will only list a few.

1) You run your business from home, where you have a huge tax advantage with write offs.

2) Your commitment of time and hard work in the short term results in significant long-term passive income.

3) Allows you to be on a profitable path of personal development.

4) Connects you with a circle of friends who share your dreams and values.

5) It has the best strategy to build a strong, viable, growing network.

6) Teaches incomparable life and leadership skills.

7) It is a mechanism of genuine wealth creation.

Kirk and I have been learning from two of the top leadership experts, Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady, for over 6 years. They have become renowned leaders in this industry and have studied many models of this industry over the past two decades. Based on their study over the past two decades of people, leadership, success principles, and the rise of the information age; they have recently launched an entirely new industry within this field of business systems. We are a new emerging industry called a “compensated community.”

A compensated community is unlike Facebook which is an uncompensated community. Even though Facebook is a billion dollar giant that was built by us, the information consumer;  Orrin, Chris, and the other founders set out to do something that has never been done in the history of home based businesses. They have created a model where there is NO owner of the company. The members of the community own the company. Therefore, all profits are split by the members based on an individuals performance. So there you have it, free enterprise at its greatest!!

  The LIFE Community has entered the world and will change the way business is done. Remember earlier when I told you that businesses fulfill a need. Well, in this case we have stood up to the challenge. What greater need is there today than the need to produce better people, a product of changed lives. Yes! You heard me correctly. I said, “our product is a better YOU!”

The LIFE Community allows you as a member to be apart of the change the world needs! We produce information where someone develops their self through CD’s, books, and seminars. We help people create the right success habits in their life. If you have been introduced to LIFE, please contact the person who invited you to see the difference. If you have not heard of LIFE, then just click on the word LIFE so you can get more information. We would gladly send you a link so you can watch a webcast so you can meet the leaders. It is vital to society and especially in America that we raise up entrepreneurs. The LIFE products are designed to train an individual in what we consider the 8 F’s: Faith, Family, Finances, Freedom, Following, Fitness, Friends, and Fun!

To Have Your Eyes

December is a very special time when families come together to share memories and discuss the events of the year. I am reminded that we tend to move like tiny busy ants through the year and then do our best to slow the month of December down so we can reflect realizing that another year of our life is quickly coming to a close. It is a wonderful time to be reminded that a savior entered the world during this season about two thousand years ago. It is our time as believers to remember His birth and begin to set new goals to align our lives to be more like Him. So…….

I thought it would be appropriate to share a song that touches my heart and helps me to be more like Christ. One area that I am always having to grow in is the area of seeing the good in people. We have learned so much through the lives of Orrin and Laurie Woodward and Chris and Terri Brady. Their example has been so powerful for Kirk and I to see the biblical truths not just talked about, but acted out in ones life. We are blessed to be connected to them in the LIFE business and the community of TEAM. They have shown us people have value, we have value, and we can help bring the greatness out in people. They have shown us to see opportunities and not disappointments.

The perfect example to us is Jesus Christ. He came and lived a sinless life. He loves us no matter what. We have the stains of sin, but yet He sees no stain on us. He sees our future of who He created us to be and not our past. My prayer is that I would have the eyes of the Lord. That I would see people how God sees them and not how my worldly eyes see them. That I would see the future full of hope, prosperity, and a land of opportunity. What if we could raise up a group of people that saw the greatness in each person and every situation. Not for who they were but what they could be. That group of people would be living a LIFE worth living!

The world today is full of negative inputs which makes it difficult for people to think in the positive. It is just like the story “The Wolves Within”.

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.

“It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.” He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

May we begin this season to learn from our Heavenly Father and see through His eyes. May we feed the good in ourselves and feed the good in others. Enjoy the words of this song written by a friend of ours, Kristi Northrup. It moves my heart each time I hear it and I am reminded how much further I must grow to be more like Christ.

Merry Christmas and May God bless you,

Kirk and Nicole Porter

Two Worlds Collided

Kirk and Nicole Porter

Each person in Life has a story. We decided to share ours and help other people tell theirs as well. We have been learning leadership, life, and success principles from Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady for over 5 years. Our story is like a lot of you who are reading this but yet different. We have learned that each person has unique abilities and God-given gifts and talents that are overlooked and underdeveloped. And that is why we share our story, and why we write this blog. Our reasons exist because we know more of you are out there that just need that little boost of belief and motivation to take your life to a whole new level. And so, the story begins…..

Two worlds collided when we met. Kirk is from Michigan and I am from Texas. It was a divine circumstance that we met because we believe everything happens for a reason. We came from two totally different backgrounds. A friend, who grew up with Kirk, contacted us about changing our results in life. Kirk and I were married at 23 and found ourselves living what we thought was the American dream. After being introduced to success principles and ultimately the Life Business, everything in our world changed. Being in debt, upside down in a mortgage, financing two cars, both working jobs while trading our time for little money, and spending small portions of time with our children was not sounding so “dreamy” anymore.

Our world was woke up to a new way of thinking. Two worlds collided again when we met the founders of LIFE. We started to subscribe to the Life changing materials through CD’s, books, the concepts of entrepreneurship, and plugging into the TEAM, a community of people that were all hungry to make a difference in their own life knowing that long term it would make a difference in the world. This new information became a life-line for us. We were starving for food that would feed our hunger to succeed in life, and the Life materials of leadership development were the perfect meal full of the truths about life. It began to speak truth in the areas of faith, family, finances, freedom, fitness, following, friends, and having fun.

Work Hard!! Play Hard!!

And because of this change, we want to share it with everyone we can. We now get to enjoy the freedom of both being home with our three boys, travel to places we had never been, pay cash for cars, and most importantly help others discover life changing truths that help them to discover their God-given purpose. The relationship between Kirk and I, our children, and with others have greatly improved. The heart change that has taken place to live out the biblical truths has given us a whole new zeal for life.

We have the privilege of playing a small part in the business team of Life and mentoring with one of the founders, Chris and Terri Brady. We are humbled to learn from them and the other Life members that paved the way for us and so many others that will “take the road less traveled on.” We are humbled to share the stage with so many great leaders by speaking at seminars where we teach on leadership, systematic success, and life changing principles. This blog is here for you to learn and grow with us. We have not arrived and only humbly share our heart about what we have learned from some of the great leaders of our time. Please feel free to share content with others and leave comments and feedback. Leadership is a life long journey and we have chosen the path and are passionate about coaching others along the way to the Life they have always wanted!!

God Bless, Kirk and Nicole Porter
