OKLAHOMA CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LegalShield, one of North America’s leading providers of affordable legal plans and the IDShield identity theft solution for individuals, families and small businesses, has begun its annual LevelUp Convention at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City. This year’s five-day event began on March 8 and brings together LegalShield’s experienced, new and aspiring Independent Sales Associates from all 50 states and Canada. They have come together to hear from motivating speakers who share their expertise in owning and running a business, and in marketing for maximum success. Attendees will also get highly specialized professional development training and benefit from networking opportunities.
LegalShield also emphasizes training and empowering younger Associates to become successful entrepreneurs and develop into company leaders. At the LevelUp Convention, the company held a panel on stage with five Associates to hear their insights about starting a business and what Millennials are looking for in a meaningful career. Mike Fedek, Kristine Piñon, Max Pilet, Daniel Sardine and Benjamin Otini, who range in age from 22 to 36, were recognized for their leadership and shared personal stories about how LegalShield has benefited their lives. The Millennial generation has the distinct advantage of growing up as digital natives. They are able to harness the power of social media and technology to their advantage much more easily, and have opportunities to network and grow their business like never before.
“Millennials are looking for a shot at the American dream, and the opportunity to advance their career and make a difference,” said Piñon. “But, they also want to earn recognition.”
“LegalShield is honored to play a role in the training and development of our next generation of entrepreneurs and leaders,” said LegalShield CEO Jeff Bell. “We are privileged to have so many dedicated, motivated and ambitious young Associates in our network and we are deeply committed to providing them with the tools to market themselves and their growing businesses.”
