Melvin & Sharon Larry Spotlight of The Month

Team NuVision’s Spotlight of the Month

Fall 2018

Mr. & Mrs. Melvin Larry

It’s a wonderful fall evening and TNV has the opportunity to speak with MCM’s: Mr. & Mrs. Melvin Larry

TNV

Good afternoon Mr. & Mrs. Melvin Larry. Thank you for taking the time from your busy schedules to speak with TNV. Tell us where you’re both from and where you live now?

Melvin

I’m from Memphis, Tennessee and I left there in my twenties, which was just a few year ago (Laughs). After leaving Memphis, I moved to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. There, I worked for FEDEX, loading airplanes with cargo and mail. I eventually became a Senior Manager. I then went on and started my own real estate firm.

Sharon

I’m from Memphis as well and my background was in Public Relations and Advertising sales. I worked for Clear Channel where I was the number 1 salesperson for many years.

TNV

Can you tell the TNV family, what drew you to LegalShield, and what were you doing before coming on board?

Melvin

I was drawn to LegalShield because I was familiar with network marketing. I had tried 3 other companies previously, but still turned LS down twice before coming onboard. I even convinced someone else not to do it! After taking another look at what LegalShield was offering, it started to make sense. I knew I was worth more than the salary and awards that I was receiving. It was time to do something else.

Sharon

After Melvin became a LegalShield associate, I had just transferred from Memphis to ATL. I was not really interested in the business, but, he asked me to join him at a briefing. I loved my career, however, I bought in millions for a company that wasn’t paying me nearly what I was bringing in to them. So, I also began to look at LegalShield.

TNV

What keeps you motivated and dedicated to LegalShield?

Motivated:

Sharon

It’s our children and grandchildren. My fear is not being able to leave something for them.

Melvin

There aren’t any alternatives for me. What I wanted was the residual income and my livelihood. This business offered me the life I was looking to have. I wanted to be able to leave something for my family. This would leave me scripturally sound and allow me to assist my children’s children. It keeps me excited and keeps me going and makes all things possible.

Dedication:

Sharon

We’ve invested a lot here and we want to see it through. When I came to LegalShield, I saw the benefits of not only the product, but where it could lead me in the future. I had come for a purpose and my goal was to go platinum. I want to create more Platinum’s and get it done. I want to help as many as I can.

Melvin

I believe that LegalShield has a strong vision! It’s the best opportunity for the people of this county to provide for and protect their families. We have dedicated fifteen years of our lives to this opportunity and empowering others.

TNV

What’s your life like outside of LegalShield?

Sharon

For me, it’s spending time with my family, our children and grandchildren. We attend Church on a regular basis, because we believe it is important for us and it helps us lead in the right way. We are also currently taking a financial literacy course. We spend quite a bit of our time learning and with each other.

We love to read and we are life learners. We learn all we can to empower each other and others. I do a lot of mentoring as well. And, of course, spending time with Melvin always brings me great joy.

Melvin

It’s pretty the much the same as Sharon. I’m a Deacon at our Church. We really enjoy traveling and being with one another. We love going to the movies and spending time with our children. We like owning our lives. And it’s always a pleasure to be in the company of Sharon. She completes me!

TNV:

As MCM’s, what’s the best advice you’ve been given? Can you share one good tip you have learned that could help someone else?

Melvin

Advice:

To work on yourself more than you work on your business. That everything that we do is about us and makes us better. To work constantly on building and bettering yourself, your family, your physical mind and body. Working on these area’s you will help better yourself and those around you, spiritually, mentally and physically.

Tip:

Be a student and be a do’er and do it with consistency.

Sharon

Advice

Be true to yourself, stay focused and stay you. Trust yourself and believe in what you’re doing.

Tip:

Believe in your product and know the ends and outs of it.

TNV

Tell us something that the TNV Family doesn’t know about you?

Melvin

I was the runner up for the most wittiest in high school

Sharon

The TNV family does not know that I hosted a TV show. I was the Oprah of Memphis TN! For a few years, I interviewed successful business people in Memphis. It was a lot of fun!

TNV

Mr. & Mrs. Larry, it has been an absolute pleasure to speak with you both. The LegalShield and TNV family are so proud of all you have accomplished during your time with the company and the team.

Answer:

Thank you Mr. James! It’s been our pleasure and we have certainly enjoyed the conversation with you.

The Larry’s are the proud parents of 6 adult children, 14 grandchildren and two on the way.
