So wait, you mean to tell me that on your team, if you’re playing at the WLC Lifestyle level, you can drink a glass of wine every day or eat a piece of dark chocolate and not lose a point?
That’s just one of the things we talk about when we hangout with Chris Plourde this week. He’s the Captain of an eighty-plus person team that has players all over the world. He’s done some innovative things with his team in the spirit of the Whole Life Challenge in order to make it work best for them, so that it stands a better chance of creating sustainable change for all. He’s also making great use of conference calling to keep the players on his team connected. Listen in to learn more.
