Before LegalShield, I was slingin’ beers as a bartender. Going to work night after night just to earn $20 in tips so that I could buy gas—so I could go to work. It wasn’t fun. I was living paycheck to paycheck and always broke.

I met Craig Hepner, who introduced me to the idea of a home business. I was skeptical. But over the next four years, I ended up joining him in three start-up companies. They all went under, and I racked up $40,000 in debt thanks to start-up costs and inventory. Then I lost my job and my car. In 1998, LegalShield came along. I was more skeptical than ever. But I’m so grateful I paid attention! I got started, used the service right away and knew I’d tell everyone about it for free, so I figured I might as well get paid.  

In 2007, I became a mommy. Thanks to my LegalShield business, I took time off during the first six months of my son’s life to just be a mom, and I’ve never had to turn him over to day care because I had to trade my time for money to pay bills. The freedom to be AT HOME, working around Avery’s schedule is the best freedom ever!  

 Many thanks to LegalShield and my incredible team for making so many dreams come true. I love this company, I love the wonderful people I get to work with, and I love that we get to live our dreams together.
