Prior to LegalShield, I had a management position with an international chemical sales company, with thousands of employees. I worked long hours and was paid well. As regional vice president, I had many responsibilities, including overseeing a sales staff, hiring and developing a large account sales force, opening new accounts and managing inventory. Being born and raised in a farming community in the Arkansas delta, I embraced hard work. However, after 30 years and surviving four mergers, the company closed our division. Upon signing a non-compete contract, I was restricted in finding another job in the same field.
I was introduced to LegalShield in 2006, as I was searching for an opportunity where I could be my own boss, be in control of my own destiny, manage my own schedule and have more time with my family while earning a very good income. LegalShield was a perfect fit for me, so I became an associate.
I heard someone once say, “If I stick and stay, you will get my pay.” And with the power of residual income, this statement has proven to be very true time and time again. Once I found my niche in serving the transportation industry with the LegalShield Commercial Drivers Legal Plan, I began providing CDL drivers with the means to protect their CDL and their careers. This program really makes a difference in the livelihoods of the trucking industry, which is a prime target of law-enforcement. Our CDL program is the single biggest factor in my growth at LegalShield.
Over the past 11 years, I have been able to open over 100 transportation group accounts. I am committed as a CDLP trainer for the past nine years to grow this specialty product for our company. Being a trainer for CDLP certification classes, I enjoy sharing my experiences with other LegalShield associates to help them become certified to sell the CDLP. It was an honor and a privilege to be invited to do the CDLP training at the 2015 and 2019 national conventions.
I have achieved the Executive Director level and have advanced up to Platinum ED level. I’ve been fortunate enough to qualify for Special Forces for high achievement in over 500 personal group sales in 2018 and 2019. Having worked in the corporate world for all those years, I am gratified in the opportunity that LegalShield has afforded me to be surrounded by professionals and high achievers who share a great work ethic, faith in God and faith in themselves to reach their potential and surpass their own dreams as they help others to reach for the stars.
