We've asked LegalZoom customers to share their stories and many of you have done just that. Read about some of the stories that have touched us, made us laugh, and above all, inspired us. Plus, vote on your favorites and upload your own.

Sell Out or Survivor?

Is cancer survivor Jennifer C. a sell out? We'd say no way, but it's Jennifer who wants you to decide. In her short video called "Capo Events - a Legit Dream", an entry in LegalZoom's Customer Story Contest, Jennifer describes how she's gone from patient to producer, using her experience to help others. Her provocative video includes some tough questions and some equally inspiring answers. Jennifer now runs Capo Events and says her business became "more legit" through the DBA and EIN she filed through LegalZoom. Click here to view Jennifer's story.

Age is Just a Number

How young can you be to be an inventor? How about 8? See this adorable Edison-to-be demonstrate her invention. And what about 19-year-old Canvas Surfboards founder Christian W.? Check out his video and you'll be inspired by the surfer turned business man. With a classic Southern California surfer style, tousled blonde hair and cheekbones usually reserved for the actors paid to promote companies, his future in business is bound to be as successful as his professional surfing career.

A Tale of Two Animal Lovers

For dog-lovers, we've got Oscar, who barks with a slight cockney accent as the child of an British father and American mother. It's dad, Mick, who shares their family story (with Oscar lending a hand) of meeting online, moving to America and living the dream.

Amazing Animation

As for animation buffs, germaphobes, parents or people who get a kick out of a nose picking baby, it doesn't get much better than "Smile Wipes, The Movie." A rhyming tale that begins with "Don't Pick, your hands could get sick", the whimsical story has some very funny visuals that serve to reinforce the point that good hygiene means good health. Their multipurpose sanitizers are the promised solution.
