In 1999, Chris was a 27-year-old, college drop-out living in the bad part of town in Ft. Worth, Texas.
He had a long list of dreams and goals that felt further and further away with each passing day. Among those dreams was his desire to be a best-selling author and an inspirational speaker, but he didn’t know how to get from point A to point B.
In August that same year, Chris was introduced to LegalShield by his brother and sister-in-law, Jeff and Cindy Hughes. Initially, all Chris wanted was to earn enough to upgrade his car from old to less old. However, by the end of his first year in business, his increased income helped him become determined that LegalShield would be the vehicle to help make his dreams come true.
“I appreciate the money.” Chris said. “But I don’t value money. I value freedom. If I were to value money, I would do so only for its ability to give my children and me more freedom. The freedom LegalShield has given me has allowed me to be in my divine purpose as a father, a teacher and a friend.”
Virtually all of the goals Chris had written down long before he discovered LegalShield have come to pass because of LegalShield. He coaches and teaches people all over the world. He is a best-selling author and a professional, inspirational speaker. “The transformation has been astounding, and I am deeply grateful for all that has happened in my life thus far and for all the goals I have realized.”
“But the thing I am most pleased about and feel the most honored and blessed by is that I get to be a stay-at-home father to my four children, Ryell, Zion, Taj and Shaylee. They are my everything.”
When asked for his “secret to success,” Chris said, “I’m just a toddler in this business and an infant along the path towards ultimate success. I don’t believe in short cuts, but if there were one and were there a ‘secret’ to success, it would be a passionate pursuit of personal development. As Jim Rohn so perfectly stated, ‘Work harder on yourself than you do on your [business].’ Truly, life renewal begins with mind renewal. Life gets better when you do. If you want things to change, you must change. If you want to see it on the outside, you’ve got to be it on the inside. You can. Your choice.”
