Our featured guests today are Lorna Rasmussen, Regional Manager for Legal Shield and Bill King, founder and president of Axxiom Franchise Advisors, and we’re talking about How to be in Business for Yourself for less than $500.
In the franchise consulting industry, we are constantly challenged by never wanting to say No to someone with entrepreneurial desires. Most franchises require a significant financial commitment that prevents many from achieving their business interests.
Today, we are talking about a proven business opportunity, providing needed professional services, for “wannabe” entrepreneurs and an investment of less than $500.
Sound too good to be true? Not at all.
However, like anything else in life worth having, this business requires a personal commitment to be successful.
First, let’s meet Lorna Rasmussen:
Lorna was born in Canada and started her professional life as a documentary film producer with the National Film Board of Canada, producing films focused on issues of concern to women and families. She was fascinated by how people met challenges in their lives and overcame them. Her films reflected a real belief in the ability of people to triumph over adversity.
While she loved producing films, she longed for something that would put her in more direct contact with people. She became a personal coach and trainer with the Success Motivation Institute (one of the earliest companies in the field of personal development) and was certified to train and support clients in the areas of time management and goal setting.
At the age of 40, with a young son and a husband in a career transition, Lorna realized that she needed something that would provide her with greater financial rewards. Film production, teaching (She had been an adjunct professor in universities in both Canada and the US.) and coaching had been personally rewarding but had not provided her with the financial compensation she needed.
Her search introduced her to the direct sales industry and it was there that she found everything coming together. It was personally rewarding to help others achieve their dreams, it was financially rewarding and it allowed Lorna to use all the skills she had been developing over the decades.
Lorna quickly became one of the top producers with LegalShield. She developed a marketing team across the US and Canada and was honored as a Millionaire Club member in her first decade with the company, having earned over a million dollars in commissions. She is one of only a very small number of women to reach the top position in her company.
Lorna believes that direct sales has the answer for work/life balance in the lives of women and is a powerful alternative for anyone seeking a new career or exploring business ownership. To share her love of the profession and the information that made her successful, Lorna began writing books on the subject. Two books in a series were published in 2009: The Absolute Best Way for Women to Make Money, and a similar book focusing on African American women.
Today, she continues to use her experience to do what she has always done – support others in the realization of their success. She coaches, speaks and writes. She has produced three very successful books and co-authored others with writers like John Fogg and Robert Allen (Guerilla Network Marketing, It’sTime … For Network Marketing and Direct Selling Power).
If you’re not impressed with Lorna’s career history, you’re not paying attention!
I think, especially for women veterans and/or military spouses interested in having their own business with a high quality organization, a proven business model providing a needed service, low cost of entry, no costly inventories to buy, excellent training, continuing strong support, offering flexibility for your time, home based and delivering the quality of life that most seek; Legal Shield offers a virtually unlimited opportunity.
It’s not for everyone but with the right skill set and determination, this can be an amazing opportunity.
