Let me ask you a very important question. When should you protect your personal assets? The resounding answer is NOW! Most people understand that all it takes is one frivolous lawsuit and you and your family could be wiped out.
But what about your small business? You work hard to build a business that you’re proud of and made it something that provides income for you and your family and then one irate customer sues you because they didn’t like the service you provided. Now you find yourself spending irreplaceable time and money defending yourself from bogus charges.
And what about the attorney whose trying to make a name for himself at your expense? He could care less about what is right or wrong. His wants to beat you down with bogus lawsuits and come out with a victory so he can put a notch on his belt at your expense.
Some people say that before you start a business you need to familiarize yourself with the law and to a certain degree you need to have some knowledge of the law but in reality, that’s not your main job. Your job is to sell a product or service and make a profit. That’s it!
So how do you handle your business’ legal situations? How do you protect your business? How do you increase and keep your profits? It’s very simple. Make sure you have legal representation at your fingertips.
Now I know what you’re thinking. “Rodney, how in the world do you expect me to put a lawyer on retainer when I can barely keep the lights on?” Well you don’t have to.
As a small business owner you have the same rights and some similar needs as the big corporate giants do when it comes to legal protection. The only difference is they can afford to have legal departments in their corporate offices and you can’t. Are the better than you? No. They’re just bigger and can afford to have attorneys on staff. Well you can too and it won’t bankrupt you.
With a small business legal plan you can have access to any type of attorney for all of your small business needs. Just think about every issue you have to deal with as a business owner. Employees, shipping, marketing, contract and business document review, website updates, follow-up phone calls, writing letters and correspondence, payroll, collections, vendors, and customer service surveys. This is a lot to handle and the last thing you need to worry about are legal issues.
Are you well versed in…
- Government regulations,
- Tax laws,
- Workplace safety and health,
- Business document review,
- Copyright and trademark laws,
- Advertising laws,
- Business planning and marketing plans,
- Labor and employment laws, and
- Online business laws.
If not, you need expert legal help.
With a small business legal plan you don’t have to be an expert in law in order to get expert advice. You can talk to an attorney without worrying about the high hourly cost on ANY legal matter. This will give you the opportunity to concentrate on your business and make a profit. Your legal headaches will be covered by your plan and handle by those well versed in small business issues.
So if you’re tired of dealing with legal issues and getting yourself in deeper trouble than before, get yourself a small business legal plan and get some peace of mind.

LegalShield Member Story of the Day
“I would just like to tell you ‘I love this BENEFIT!’
Earlier this year we refinanced our home. Prior to closing, we discovered [the mortgage company] did not apply bi-weekly payments toward the principal balance as we instructed. Consequently, our payoff amount was higher.
I called the mortgage company and requested a readjustment and they informed me that the account was closed and we would probably owe money if they performed an audit.
I called my LegalShield attorney. After hearing my circumstances [she] advised me to file a complaint with the Attorney General of the resident state of the mortgage company. She also sent a letter on our behalf to the mortgage company and the Attorney General.
Later, I received a call on my cell phone from the mortgage company. The representative told me they had reviewed our account and found that we had indeed overpaid and they would be issuing us a refund check that very day.
Immediately I called my husband, Kevin, to let him know and he said he had something to tell me.
Kevin had an issue with [a computer manufacturer] regarding the repair of his laptop. [They] were charging more for repairs than he was quoted prior to the repair. We made several request for an itemization of charges and finally a manager agreed to fax one to us. We called LegalShield because we still had not received the itemization. The attorney wrote a letter to [the manufacturer] on our behalf. After a couple of days, a representative called and told us we had to pay and authorize them to repair the laptop or they would send it back un-repaired. Because he uses the laptop for business and it had already been over a week, Kevin paid for the repair.
Thank you so much for providing affordable, professional legal services and making it so easy to share my story.”
Now how many or us would have called an attorney at $200, $300 or $400 an hour to get these issues resolved? NONE OF US! It would not have made financial sense. With the LegalShield membership everyday people now have the legal muscle to make sure their rights are enforced because if you don’t know you’re rights, you don’t have any.
If you want more information on our membership and how it can save you money, please email me at email@example.com and I’ll take care of you.
To YOUR Success,
Here is a LegalShield Member Story of the Day.
“Dear [Provider Firm]
To begin, I must apologize for my tardiness in writing this thank you. Last year at this time, I was almost in fear of losing in excess of $17,000 on an Internet company that misrepresented itself to me and through hard sell and my desire to believe their tale of riches, I invested – within weeks I was in over my head.
I contacted LegalShield and my case was assigned to an ANGEL. [My provider attorney]. She was on my side, from day one. She had the knowledge I needed to respond to this fraud, the compassion to recognize my plight and calm my fears, and the tenacity of a pit bull who never backed up an inch – she attacked from day one and in the end I received everything I had hoped to and all but a few monthly payments were returned to me.
[My provider attorney] was exemplary. She returned EVERY phone call and fax question I sent. In today’s business world, that is far from the norm. At least a half dozen return calls to my cell phone were after normal business hours. That was a blessing. When she had information or questions for me, she would call at 6 or 7 p.m. the same day as I contacted her. To me, this is ABOVE AND BEYOND anything I might have expected from a company I had only enrolled in less than four months prior. She was always polite, friendly, professional and concerned. She exuded her honest concern with every conversation.
I cannot recommend her anymore highly than to say – I would trust her and request her to handle any legal matter I may incur in the future. You have a real GEM on your staff in [my provider attorney].
Please recognize her for her work. I tell everyone who even mentions their legal problem to me of LegalShield and [my provider attorney]. They are one and the same!
An extremely satisfied customer.”
This is just one example of how the LegalShield membership is providing equal justice for all. Being able to pay for legal service to protect your rights should not be an issue. EVERYONE should have their rights protected under law.
The question is are your rights protected? If you have a question and need some legal advice, who do you call? Do you call anyone or do you try to handle it yourself? The choice is yours to protect you and your family.
To YOUR Success,
P.S. If you want information on how the LegalShield membership works or if you’re interested in our business opportunity and want more information. Send me an email with your request to firstname.lastname@example.org with More Information in the subject line.
Just yesterday I had the opportunity to listen in on a testimony from someone who used the LegalShield membership. This lady was in the process of getting involved with someone else in a business venture and she and the other person had the contracts drawn up and it was time to sign on the dotted line.
Most of us would have read over the contract thoroughly a few times and then after thinking that we were clear on the matter, we would have signed it. Not really knowing all of the intricate details of the deal that was in the contract, we would have trusted that this opportunity would have worked out to our benefit.
Well this lady did the smart thing. She did what the wealthy do. Before signing her name and making a business commitment, she had her attorney’s review the contracts. She got a copy of the contract and faxed it over to her LegalShield law firm and a business attorney reviewed the contract for her word for word and in two days called her to discuss the details. During this conversation the attorney was able to give this lady the pros and cons of signing the contract. This lady was able to go into this deal knowing exactly what she was getting into without any surprises in the future.
The lady had PEACE OF MIND knowing that she was not going to get herself into a bad situation from signing a bad deal. Oh, and did I mention that the lady was an attorney.
Now if she was an attorney why would she have another attorney review the contract? Couldn’t she do it herself?
She said the reason she had another attorney do it was because she is not capable of practicing every area of law. She had to find an expert in that area to suit her needs. She’s also not licensed to practice law anywhere she wants. And the best thing I like about what she said was that if she had gone to the phone book and found attorney to provide the services she received, it would have cost her $800! But because she was a LegalShield member she didn’t have to pay a penny out of pocket. Now that is what you call a value added service.
I spoke to a gentleman, who is a doctor, about what we do and how the service could help him and he replied, “My wife is a lawyer.” Now I know he thinks he’s okay because his wife is a lawyer but based on his rationale, because he is a doctor, he shouldn’t need any medical insurance right? He should be able to take care of all of the family’s medical needs. Now that sounds ridiculous but that is what people think. My wife is a lawyer, my cousin is a lawyer, my college roommate is a lawyer,…
If you have a real conversation with you lawyer family and friends they’ll tell you they are tired of always getting calls for the hook up. They’ll tell you that they practice law to earn their pay and when you call for legal services that takes away from what they have to do.
Just like a doctor can’t do it all, neither can a family or friend who is a lawyer. Why not put yourself in a position where you have access to law firms all over theUnited StatesandCanadafor one low monthly fee. Don’t wait for something to happen before you make the decision. Get your LegalShield membership NOW!
Now if you know anything about the late great Jim Rohn or have heard any of his CD’s or tapes, you should be familiar with the phrase, “Profits Are Better Than Wages” because he mentions it a lot.
Now some people probably think that profits and wages are the same. I mean it’s all about getting more money isn’t it? As long as the paper is coming in, I don’t care what you call it. Profits, wages, bucks, dead presidents, moolah, greenbacks, duckets, scratch, dough, Benjamin, C-note, clams, cheese, cheddar, lettuce or bacon. Okay, I’m hungry now.
Well there is a difference.
Let’s look at the definition for each one.
Wages-a payment usually of money for labor or services usually according to contract and on an hourly, daily, or piecework basis.
Profits-a valuable return; the excess of returns over expenditure in a transaction or series of transactions; the compensation accruing to entrepreneurs for the assumption of risk in business enterprise as distinguished from wages or rent.
Let’s take a look at Wages. What sticks out in this definition for me immediately is the word labor. Now I know nothing in life is free and we have to work if we want to eat but when I read this definition I have visions of not just labor, but HARD labor. You know the type of work that is stressful, back braking and physically hard.
The next part of that definition that gets my attention is on an hourly, daily, or piecework basis. The way I see it is if you put in a certain amount of time, you will get back a certain amount of money and nothing more. Now that’s how we’re all raised to believe but wouldn’t it be nice if we could minimize the amount of time we put in BUT increase the amount of money we make? That is the world of network marketing.
Now let’s look at Profits. In this definition there are so many things that appeal to me, the first being value. When something is of value it is looked upon as great worth. Next there’s excess of returns. Who doesn’t want excess when it comes to our returns. Every business person wants the maximum amount of return for their efforts.
The next two phrases are entrepreneurs and business enterprises. Let’s face it. If you are a business owner or interested in starting a successful business, you now have the mindset of an entrepreneur so anything that is associated with business ownership or building an enterprise is a good thing.
As an entrepreneur you do what you do because you love it but also because you want to make a profit and you want to create wealth. If you’re not in it to make any money then I question your sanity. Seriously. Let’s be real, if we want to create wealth for our family and provide a financial freedom we need to earn profits. Earning wages is good for paying our bills but we all want more than that. We want to be able to dream and then make those dreams a reality and the only way to do that is to get those profits.
So let’s stop settling for mediocrity and go for the gold.
To Your Success,
