Joy’s background is in corporate America and higher education administration. When Joy was downsized for the third time, she had to replace her corporate income. “I didn’t want to go back to the corporate setting. Every time I would think about returning to a corporate environment, I would physically get sick to my stomach. I was truly tired of being a pawn in someone else’s game,” said Joy.

She was looking for an opportunity where she could fit a business model into her life and her children’s lives.

An individual took 15 to 20 minutes to share the LegalShield marketing plan with Joy and her husband, Mike. They had been satisfied customers first and understood the value of the membership. “We saved more than $1,200 within the first six months of having the service, just by being able to ask questions and have a document reviewed,” she explained.

The LegalShield opportunity appeared to be a way to gain back some time in her life. She decided to market some memberships to see if anyone else saw the same value she did. People said yes, motivating her to move forward on a part-time basis. Within five months, she was working her LegalShield business full-time. She recognized the different avenues of sharing the membership, and she focuses on employee benefits for companies looking to enhance their employee package.

She has also recognized the value of building a team of associates and leveraging her time and income, and she has become very active in working with insurance professionals.
