Tara Paustenbach – Austin, TX

Before LegalShield, I was slingin’ beers as a bartender. Going to work, night after night, just to earn $20 in tips so I could buy gas in order to go to work the next night was my life. It wasn’t fun. I was living paycheck to paycheck and always broke.

I met Craig Hepner, who introduced me to the idea of a home business. I was skeptical. But over the next four years, I ended up joining him in three start-up companies. They all went under, and I racked up $40,000 in debt thanks to start-up costs and inventory. Then I lost my job and my car. In 1998, LegalShield came along. I was more skeptical than ever. But I’m so grateful I paid attention! I got started, used the services right away, and knew I’d tell everyone about it for free, so I figured I might as well get paid.

In 2007, I became a mommy. Thanks to my LegalShield business, I took the first six months of my son’s life OFF to just be a mom, and I’ve never had to turn him over to day care because I had to trade my time for money to pay bills. The freedom to be AT HOME, working around my little Avery’s schedule is the best freedom ever! I’m a Room Mom and school volunteer, and I’ve been a Den Mom for his Cub Scout’s, a flag-football mom, soccer mom, Jiu-Jitsu mom, baseball mom and ALWAYS THERE FOR HIM mom, which I’m grateful for.

I’ve never broken a record with LegalShield, and I’ve never been #1, Top 10 or a superstar in any category – I’ve just done what I could when I could and this amazing company has still paid me well over $1 Million in commissions to date.

Many thanks to LegalShield and my incredible team for making so many dreams come true. I love this company, I love the wonderful people I get to work with, and I love that we get to live our dreams together.
