FRANK & THERESA AUCOIN
BUSINESS OWNER, EDUCATION, FRANCHISE, NUTRITION
As a special education teacher, Theresa loved teaching, but even with her master’s degree, the income left a lot to be desired, especially when she incurred day-care costs in order to work. With Frank’s background in traditional business (he is self-taught, with no formal education past the sixth grade), Theresa decided after eight years of teaching that it was time to stay home to raise the kids while supporting Frank in his business ventures.
In 1974, they founded a sign franchise business, which grew across the Southeast. Frank has received numerous awards and honors for his business savvy and his ability to help his peers take their businesses to new levels of success. He has been named one of the Top 52 Businessmen in the U.S., honored by the Charleston Chamber of Commerce as “Business Person of the Year,” and elected the following year by the South Carolina Chamber as “South Carolina Business Person of the Year.”
He continues to advise and support business owners and upcoming entrepreneurs constantly, including many LegalShield business owners!
After opening a small chain of bookstores and later founding the graphic sign company franchise, the AuCoins learned a lot about traditional business. Although they loved what they accomplished, they learned that being a traditional business owner demanded a lot—dealing with employees, overhead, rent, insurance, bookkeeping, marketing, worker’s comp, collections, etc. However, when they discovered LegalShield, they learned they could grow a business without the normal challenges and headaches they were familiar with.
Theresa and Frank have accomplished some of their longtime dreams and goals during the past few years. As a result of Theresa’s passion for everyone to be healthy and full of vitality, she became a certified nutritional counselor and holistic health practitioner. Theresa has a passion for sharing important information on how to easily improve your health. What good is wealth if you don’t have your health? Frank, with goals of taking much of their LegalShield income to set up assets, has accumulated rental homes that are fully paid for. The AuCoins say, “Thank you, LegalShield!
The AuCoins have hit the rank of Platinum 4, have earned the $400,000 income ring and have qualified for the Millionaire Club and the PC4Life program. They were honored to be featured in the lifestyle segments of the Private Business Reception DVD, and Theresa was featured in the LegalShield magazine LIVE MORE.
What they like best about this business is being an influential part of leading others to success. Many on their team today are living fuller and more productive lives because of improving their health. According to Frank, “LegalShield is not a get-rich-quick deal. But it is a plan that works if you work it.”
They believe the BIG keys to developing a large team are KNOWING YOUR WHY, PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT, BUILDING FOR EVENTS, and USING THE TOOLS. To make it through the challenges, the ups and downs, you MUST have your WHY clearly established in your mind. Also, you must have the right attitude, beliefs and mind-sets, and you can get these from CONSISTENT personal development. And when you do a super effective job of getting your Associates to use the TOOLS (“Prospect” resources) and get to the EVENTS, then the real magic happens—growth is inevitable. GROWTH is the goal.
Frank and Theresa make their home in Charleston, South Carolina. Their favorite time is spent with their grown children, Bryant and Sharla; their grandchildren, Skylar and Parker; and their close friends.
