"For things to change, you must change. And if you'll change, everything will change for you."
- Earl Shoaff
If you just read the beginning of this, know that. So much of my joy comes from my daily relationships with our Savior Jesus Christ, my Proverbs 31 wife, Allicia, and my son, Alex.
Prior to finding LegalShield, my life was work, work, work and sometimes a second job in my “free time.” My career path was heavy with managing restaurants and peppered with various sales positions. I knew that in five years, nothing would beSo “with pennies in my pocket and nothing in the bank” as the great Jim Rohn said, I burned my ships. I left my restaurant management position in June 2014, and started with LegalShield full time. That first step began to forever change my life and so many of those I would meet.
Years before that, Platinum Council member Mark Riches and his brother Mike found a man named Jim Tanner. Jim and his buddy Bill Charron happened upon one Mr. Curt Jones. Ladies and gents, I didn't know it then, but Mr. Curt Jones was and is THE MAN, chosen by God, to reshape my life through LegalShield. I’ve included them here because I will always be grateful to those who helped bring me from the bottom of the valley to the top of the mountain!
I always wanted to be a giver “when I grew up,” but I felt I would never have the means. Jesus said, “Until now you have not asked for anything in my name, ask and you will receive and your joy will be complete.” John 16:24
Well, I finally “asked,” and you know the rest. Welcome to LegalShield. We now enjoy setting our own schedules. We work where we want, and we enjoy traveling. This isn't to say we don't work hard - we do - but we have this flexibility while earning an income.
A terrific milestone for us was collecting the $100,000 ring in Oklahoma City after two years in the business! I was so proud to speak to over 10,000 Associates at the convention, and I'm looking forward to receiving my next two rings in the few coming months.
Additional highlights have been the first-year Performance Club trips.
My stunning wife and I are so grateful to have met so many amazing people. Our friends, mentors and peers alike have taught us so much in this personal development company that markets these invaluable services. We say be BIG. We firmly believe we are shaped by the books we read, the individuals we spend time with, and the goals we set.
One great realization I’ve had in these last few years is this: WE BECOME WHAT WE THINK ABOUT.
Our next goals include consistently achieving the Silver Executive Director level, recruiting a team to produce a six-figure income and finally, achieve and maintain the Platinum level.
A wise man said having money magnifies who you really are. This amazing company allows us to serve others and allows Allicia and me, who are still newly married, to already live and give like no one else!
Matthew 6:33 says, “Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and all these things shall be given to you as well.”
