LINDA BOWDEN & ALEX GARDNER
Linda and Alex are mission-driven leaders who joined forces 17 years ago. They have been busy developing win-win relationships from coast to coast ever since.
For Linda, LegalShield was love at first sight. “When I first started, I was waiting on tables and really didn’t have much of a background, but I loved the idea of being independent, creating my own schedule and being accountable to myself. I instantly fell in love with the service because I could understand the need. My father had been a small-town attorney and public servant. People who couldn’t afford $250-per-hour attorneys were always at our house. He would counsel them in our living room at all hours of the day or night and often times they either couldn’t afford to pay him or he wouldn’t accept payment. From that experience I learned why families would need a program like LegalShield, and that’s why over 30 years later I am still as committed as I am to the mission today. LegalShield is the only career I’ve ever had!”
For Alex, independence and the rewarding nature of the business is also what made LegalShield the ultimate career path. While he experienced some perks with high-paying sales and marketing projects in corporate America, he says, “There were some things missing. I longed to find work that was purposeful that I could be passionate about. I wanted to find something that was not only paying my bills but also something I truly believed in. Many people I knew who were making a lot of money weren’t necessarily doing so for the greater good of humanity—more of just something they did to pay the bills. And most people I knew who were actually doing what they believed in and were passionate about weren’t always paid well for their efforts. I wanted something with both, and I found this rare combination with LegalShield.”
Linda and Alex enjoy empowering households and businesses with one-of-a-kind solutions that provide peace of mind and confidence. They also enjoy partnering with like-minded professionals who believe in the value of our services and are attracted to the mission of protecting all North Americans from injustice, making equal justice for all a reality for everyone.
They operate under constant and never-ending improvement and are always looking for better ways to serve and add more value to their clients and the Freedom Fighters Community of business associates.
One of the things Linda and Alex are most proud of is consistently earning top organizational retention awards. This means that households are staying protected, and their business partners continue to be rewarded for their good service. Linda continues to be paid on business from satisfied customers she enrolled three decades ago! You know it’s a great product when people keep the service for decades!
“Thank God for LegalShield,” Linda says. “Thank you to all of our friends, mentors and associates who have been a part of this beautiful journey. And a special heartfelt thank you goes to the late Harland Stonecipher and Shirley Stonecipher for spending 40 years of your lives making this awesome mission a reality. And thank you, Jeff Bell, for all the amazing things you’ve done to help take this company to the next level. The best is yet to come!”
