Prior to working with LegalShield, I worked in bathroom and kitchen design while earning a finance degree. I was $23,000 in debt, had to pay for college, and had no time. Loren worked as a waitress and swim instructor while she studied communications at UCLA. While I dreamed of being debt-free and pursuing the American Dream, Loren dreamed of having more time for family and passions in life. Needless to say, there was room for change. After working full-time for years, I realized my income stopped growing. I could continue to build someone else’s dream or start building my own, so I made a choice to work full-time on my job and part-time on this opportunity.
On May 13, 2002, I became an associate and immediately began earning extra income working part-time with LegalShield. My first year, I worked 15-hours weekly while still working my job full-time and attending college. By the end of that year, I graduated college, and I made the choice to pursue this LegalShield full time.
Two years later, Loren, who already loved the membership, attended the international convention with me and got inspired and decided to go to work. After six months of hard work, she was made the decision to become a full-time associate, and today we get to build our business and future together.
This business has allowed us to turn some of our dreams into realities: I helped my mother and brother move to Los Angeles from Israel and helped my father purchase a home. Loren and I had our dream wedding in Malibu, purchased our home near the ocean, remodeled it, and bought our vehicles. We have been traveled across the United States and abroad. Our son has already traveled to three different countries with us. We are excited to continue to build our family’s legacy and be at-home parents.
None of this would have happened if we hadn’t attended our first convention. That is where we both caught the vision of where this company was going with or without us. We started reading great books, associated with positive people who had our solutions rather than negative people who had our problems, and adapted the belief, “If I want things to change, I have to be the change.”
We are so thankful to be a part of an incredible team. It takes a team to win, and we will continue to lead by example and help others achieve their goals and dreams.
