Thank you readers for being so supportive of Get Sorted: The Blog. In effort to continuously grow and evolve, I will be adding a special monthly edition to support local entrepreneurs and business owners in the Greater Toronto Area and highlight their expertise. As a Professional Organizer, I help clients transform their homes. I want to provide you with as much knowledge to local resources as possible which is why I created Getting Your Life Sorted: Local Expert Spotlight. It will provide you, the reader, an opportunity to learn more about how you can improve your lifestyle, such as physically, mentally, economically, and more - on your own terms! You can expect answers to commonly asked questions, misconceptions, and ways to enhance your life for the better!
Our very first Local Expert Spotlight goes to Balbir K. Pabila. A mother of two living in Mississauga, Ontario downsized from an IT job that left her feeling the effects of burnout and looking for something that would provide more freedom. She was looking for something that would better align with her values. The universe certainly had a plan for Balbir because when one door closed another one opened. In 2015, Balbir was introduced to LegalShield. Now, 5 years with LegalShield has led Balbir to be an award-winning Independent Associate and dynamic team leader. It has provided the entrepreneurial opportunity that Balbir was yearning for because she is now working business around her life instead life around her business. Plus, as Balbir puts it, "how could you not love a career that provides your clients with affordable access to the legal system and identity theft protection." Legal issues can be confusing, complicated, and even a little embarrassing. LegalShield saves time, saves money, and protects you and your family with a legal plan.
What sets Balbir apart from other LegalShield experts is her endless dedication to help others and her persistence in providing her clients with quality customer service. Balbir says, "helping people feels good because I am helping people access affordable legal services, especially to those who otherwise wouldn't have access to it due to typical high costs of lawyers hourly rates or who often don't know where to start. LegalShield also encourages self-development. It has become a major aspect of my professional and personal growth by striving to be the best version of myself and a better human being."

THE TOP 5 MOST COMMON LEGALSHIELD QUESTIONS with Balbir Pabila
1. WHEN SHOULD I GET A WILL DONE? DO I REALLY NEED ONE?
You are not legally required to prepare a will. However, if you don't have a will, the laws in your province or territory will determine how your estate is divided. LegalShield includes the completion of a will with its memberships. Start the process on your LegalShield app. Lawyers will help you prepare your will, living will, healthcare power of attorney, and financial power of attorney.
2. DO I NEED TO BE WORRIED ABOUT IDENTITY THEFT IF I ONLY HAVE ONE CREDIT CARD?
Criminals don't want your money, they want your identity. LegalShield offers IDShield to provide you the peace of mind knowing your identity is being protected. IDShield monitors credit cards, SIN, loans, driver's license, and more!
