Our journey with LegalShield began in January 1993. Carole and I were college students renting a small house in San Bernardino, California. We were inexperienced and eager to succeed, so we followed a system created by our mentors, Woody and Fran Alexander. After four years of hard work, our efforts started to pay off. We made our first million dollars at the ages of 27 and 28 by building a nationwide team of 25,000 associates. It was not overnight success, but with persistence and consistence, those years of hard work paid off time and time again.

LegalShield has enabled two college dropouts to become millionaires in less than 10 years, and it served to fuel our aspirations to do the same for our associates. One of the most fulfilling aspects of the business is that we can help someone make a living working with this company, while simultaneously making a difference in people’s lives by placing a LegalShield membership in someone’s hands and giving them an opportunity to create their destiny. 

We have helped thousands of people break through their financial barriers. Along with our partners, Patrick and Julie Shaw, our team, Team Prosperity Partners, has helped 35 associates EARN THEIR RINGS (making between $100,000 and $500,000 or more per year). And we have more leaders on track to earn their RING in the next 12 months! This team has helped even more families have peace of mind and security offered through our LegalShield membership.

We are often asked, “Did you ever imagine that this could happen to you?” The answer is always, “Absolutely! You have to believe it before you can achieve it!”

When I was diagnosed with cancer in 2013, our LegalShield business gave me the time and the finances to KICK CANCER’S BUTT! Because of our awesome team and the renewal and residual income that LegalShield pays, we had income each month, whether we actively worked the business or not. Today I am CANCER-FREE! God has given me a second chance at life, a chance to make a BIGGER difference in this world. I realized my cancer battle was not about me; it’s about the people who are looking for an opportunity to change their lives and the lives of the people they care about and also make a difference in this world! 

We are driven by this opportunity to give back to others. For many years, we have been contributing our time, money and knowledge throughout North America to help the LegalShield mission. We love helping people gain greater financial intelligence and empower others to identify and fulfill their true purpose. We believe in paying it forward. Carole and I are honored and humbled by the position we hold, and we pray that we can help thousands more start their walk to independence. 

God has truly blessed us. We have four beautiful children: Alexandria-18, Isabella-17, Russell III (RP3)-8 and Amelia-6. LegalShield allows us to work from home, raise our children and nurture them without worrying about money. We can do what we want, when we want, with whom we want and we can pay for it! Although I grew up poor, I always dreamed of a better life, and LegalShield has provided it, changing my family tree forever! God bless LegalShield, and God bless America!
