On The Way To One Million
It’s been nearly one month since I last posted; I’ve been quiet because there really isn’t that much to write about these days that hasn’t already been covered. Major Functions for various Amway or MonaVie Systems have come and gone, where the same old rah rah from the previous function three months ago is recycled and regurgitated back to the masses.
Orrin Woodward’s TEAM had its Major a week or two ago in St. Louis. There have been a few clips published online from it and no doubt, the title of Orrin’s next CD will be, “Just do it.” In the talk, Orrin has no patience for the excuses people come up with for not building the business. To him, people fail in the business because they are simply not willing to “do it.” Since he and his power council friends “did it,” he can’t comprehend a scenario where someone, despite doing everything set forth in his tapes, books and CDs, fails. It’s just not possible in his worldview.
If there’s anything that I’m going to hold Orrin to, it’s his oft-stated goal of having one million members in TEAM. Just today, he tweeted:
Heading up to the Windy City to see a group of rowdy rascals! On our way to 1 million people.
Will he make it to one million? Remember, he’s been saying this for a long, long time now, since he was an Amway distributor. Personally, I bet the chances of Woodward getting one million followers on Twitter is much higher than his chances of TEAM gaining one million members. After all, he’s only 1/10 of the way to one million on Twitter; TEAM has what, 15,000 members at most? Of course, if you subtract all of the suspect followers he has — and they are legion — I think the true number of followers will be much less than 105,468.
Readers, what do you think? Will Orrin Woodward make good on his goal of gaining 1,000,000 members in TEAM? Post your comments below!
Update 2010-03-06: Orrin’s recent tweet reiterates his goal to get to 1,000,000 members:
I am looking for a 1000 leaders to build 1000 people teams for 1 million people in the Team community.
