Stephanie recently launched her career with Legal Shield after being a stay-at-home mom for 13 years. She and her husband have been married for 17 years. In addition to being a homeschooling parent, she also received her Master’s degree in Business Management and Organizational Leadership from Warner Pacific College.
When we asked Stephanie what inspired her to start her business she responded, “My family did. I knew that I was not willing to give up being a stay-at-home mom. I love being with my children, and the time freedom that being in network marketing gives you was the opportunity I was looking for.”
Stephanie’s favorite parts of working for herself include the ability to spend time with her family, being able to utilize the leadership skills she learned from Warner Pacific, and helping her team work towards their dreams. “I have always enjoyed being able to help other people and knowing that my business helps empower people and gives them access to affordable legal care, it was a partnership that I knew would be beneficial to so many people,” she explains.
Stephanie says her biggest mentor is her mom. “My mom has always shown me that with hard work anything is possible. She taught me to never give up on my dreams and has always been my biggest supporter. She instilled in me a good work ethic and integrity. She inspires me daily.”
It isn’t a surprise to anyone who knows Stephanie that she is a proud mom and counts raising her two sons to be loving and caring boys as one of her greatest achievements. “I have always believed that being a parent is a privilege and something that I am very grateful for. I do my best to lead by example for my children and hope that one day they will learn to follow their dreams and realize that the sky is the limit,” she says.
Her biggest business challenge is communicating the value of what her business can offer its users. “I hope to educate people on how to access their legal rights and give them the opportunity to realize that they deserve equal access to the justice system.”
She advises new business owners to have faith in themselves and their business, and to remember that slow and steady is better than racing to the finish line. “Success never happens by giving up,” she says. She continues, “I think the key to starting your own business is being able to have a vision and work towards that vision. Create goals for you and your business and always be open to learning and changing.”
