New Policy Council Members

Wayne & Raylene MacNamara

Well, as much as I intend to blog more often then I do , it seems most of the time I don’t get to it.  However, the past few months have been amazing and so memorable that I have so much to share and can’t put it off any longer! Wayne and Raylene MacNamara are new Policy Council members!!

I remember crossing as a new PC and it was definitely a huge accomplishment that meant a lot to me. However, watching Wayne and Ray go PC was a million times better.

We met Wayne and Ray ten years ago, they were in their early 20’s and both working at factories.  Over 5 years we became best friends and although their business didn’t explode, our relationship grew to be rock solid. Wayne and Ray had been going to seminars and digesting books and listening to CDs, basically becoming professional students of success.

Then we joined TEAM led by Orrin Woodward and things changed.  Both the MacNamara’s and our business started to grow, fast then faster then crazy fast! Wayne had only a handful of people on his team, although super committed, and now those people are his closest friends and also big leaders themselves earning their own success.

That’s what I love about the LIFE business. No one makes it without helping others make it.

I loved watching MacNamara’s team so excited to celebrate their leaders success. I loved watching MacNamara’s families in the audience as Wayne and Ray crossed and gave an amazing inspiring heartfelt speech. I loved watching Orrin and Laurie, great mentors and best friends of mine, give Wayne and Ray, also great friends, their PC ring and pendant.

I loved Wayne’s first PC meeting, having him get to be part of such an amazing group of men is such a blessing. I loved all the stories and memories we shared with the MacNamara’s as we spent 2 weekends in a row with them celebrating and reminiscing about the journey to PC.

MOST AMAZINGLY WE LOVED meeting Wayne and Ray in Louisville, after they left at 3am in the morning from Toronto, having just gotten positive results in a pregnancy test!! THAT’S FREAKING RIGHT!!! They found out they were pregnant hours before crossing as PC for the first time!!! CAN U BELIEVE THAT!!!!!

I could barely hold myself together. Lana and Ray cried all weekend, we all thought Wayne would get too excited and just blurt it out on stage!!!

So there you have it, Wayne and Ray are new PC and expecting parents!!! WOWSERS!!!

I have a million great stories about the MacNamara’s. I will try to tell a lot of them over the next few blog posts. But one I will leave you with something Ray said about Wayne during their PC speech. Wayne and Ray met and fell in love when they were 15. (this is quite normal in Cape Breton Ha Ha!!!)

They have been together since then, 20 years!!! Ray said “I knew him as a boy, and watched him grow into the man he is today”.  Now she will get to watch him become an amazing father. I have so much passion for them as friends and partners.

We are so proud of them!!!!

  1. WOW! Thank you Raylene and Wayne for the vision! You have inspired me more than you can imagine watching the PC recognition …. The hug between Wayne and Claude … that was the symbol of victory! Everything was exciting “the hug” the ring pendant the hugs and of course the beautiful dress … and all i could think about was .. what if she didnt have the Courage to pursue this … where would they be? Great job and look forward to hearing more stories about these two. :)

  2. It was incredible to see Wayne and Raylene get recognized as PC for the first time in Ottawa. We got as close to the stage as we could and loved getting close enough to see not just Wayne & Raylene, but the other leaders as they stood to the side.

    We wish everyone could’ve had the ability to see the emotions on the other PCs faces, especially you and Lana. It just shows what loving leaders you are.

    It makes us so proud to be called Kaizen.

  3. Fantastic, terrific, & wonderful news all rolled into two weekends! :)

    I had the privilege to see the recognition in Louisville up close – it was a blessing to be surrounded by Kaizen yellow towels, flowers being tossed, signs, and banners right near the stage and see two awesome folks be accorded the fruits of their labours over the past decade.

    Kudos to Wayne & Raylene from your ROK of Kaizen brothers (and sisters) in Terry & Ann’s tribe :D
