Good morning, everybody!
You know, as Peter Griffin would say, "you know what really grinds my gears...?", Is when I hear people say "you're just a notary". What's worse is when I hear other notaries say "I'm just a notary", as if there is some power that they haven't stepped into where they're just giving it away. There is no such thing as "just a notary", guys. A notary public fills an essential role in fraud prevention. We're often the last line of defense in mortgage and identity theft. And a notary public can make or break a transaction.
This work matters.
And the responsibility of owning that is really on us. We have some stereotypes that we have to break through when it comes to misconceptions from the general public or even from people who utilize our services all the time. You know, we're coming out of an era where maybe the notary business wasn't taken as seriously as it could have or should have.
And that's where we are, it's an exciting time to be in this...

Welcome to Friday FAQ for October 11th, 2019! I am coming live from San Diego, California.
This week I'm in town for one of the Brendon Burchard events called the Influencer event. Pretty awesome to be in the room packed full of people who are out there trying to change the world for the better.
But this week - I had lots of different options of what I was going to talk about. But I got a no less than four, maybe five emails every week. That's almost one per day asking me which type of scanner would be necessary or if they even needed a scanner for this work. So today we're going to answer the question: "Do I need a scanner as a mobile notary and loan signing agent?"
The short answer is yes - you probably do.
Why is that? It is because signing agents, lenders, title companies - they will sometimes require that documents be sent back after...

Hey everybody, this is Bill Soroka, founder of NotaryCoach.com and the Sign and Thrive Notary Training Course and Community.
I am live at the Kimpton Rowan Hotel in downtown Palm Springs. (I don't know why I said Las Vegas in the video!!) I decided on my way back from the Notary Symposium in Irvine yesterday to stop in Palm Springs and just kind of refresh a little bit because I was feeling pretty wiped out and exhausted, and found an amazing deal at this luxury hotel by the way, on Hotels Tonight. That's a smart phone app, but there was an incredible deal.
You guys should see the view I have right now of the entire Valley and all the mountains surrounding Palm Springs. So it's really amazing and I'm grateful for deals like that. I love finding amazing deals and cool little places like this on my travels and adventures.
But today I want to talk about my experience at the notary symposium in Irvine, California.
There are two of them this year. The first...

Hey, good morning everybody.
It's Friday FAQ time. And today's question is, "should I have an LLC for my mobile notary and loan signing business?"
My name is Bill Soroka, and I'm the founder of NotaryCoach.com and the Sign & Thrive Training Course and Community.
And before we get started, first let me say that I have to give you a disclaimer here. I am not an attorney or a tax advisor, so it's always recommended that you seek professional advice for your situation. There's actually another blanket law or policy that works for everyone in every situation. So I'm going to give you a little bit of guidelines here, kind of what I did, and what the majority of notaries do whenever they get started. But please know that it's highly recommended that you get the professional advice that you need.
Okay, so the question comes in from multiple people every single week, via email via. You can see it in the comments and the YouTube videos. I get Facebook messenger...

Hi everybody. This is Bill Soroka, founder of NotaryCoach.com and the Sign And Thrive Notary Course and Community.
I just got off the phone with a really awesome new student in Sign And Thrive it was actually a mentor call. I offer these mentor calls for free. So if you're interested, you can always just check and schedule them at NotaryCoach.com in the upper right hand corner there is "Book a Call with Bill"
So this particular person was a teacher - just decided to quit teaching and move into the mobile notary and loan signing business and had a lot of fear around having the right skill sets to do this work. She was afraid that she didn't know anything about being a mobile notary and loan signing agent. So there was all this "I don't know what to do" and "there's too much to learn."
So we really just kind of boiled it down. Then we got the chance to really talk about it because - did you know that all of your skills and work experience will help you grow your...

Hi everybody. This is Bill Soroka, founder of NotaryCoach.com and the Sign and Thrive Notary Training Course and Community. We are wrapping up another crazy busy end of month here in September. I hope it's as busy for you as it is for so many across the country.
Today on the Friday FAQ video, I'm going to talk about how you can find more companies that are going to hire you as a mobile notary and loan signing agent. This is probably one of the single most popular questions that I get asked via email or on the mentor coaching calls that I offer. Plus, you'll see it all over the comments on the YouTube channel as well.
'How do I find these companies that hire us?'.
I'm going to give you the most comprehensive list of signing companies at the end of this video. These are vetted companies that are high quality. They hire us every single day to facilitate loan signing appointments and even other types of appointments. But there are some pre-requisites that you...

Hi everybody, this is Bill Soroka, founder of NotaryCoach.com and the Sign & Thrive Community.
I am alive and well in Helena, Montana right now! I'm up here for the Remote Online Notarization Symposium (RON), sponsored by the Secretary of State.
I'm super excited! It's been a long, awesome week and I probably would not say no to a nap right now. But there's too much to do.
First of all, I'm super excited because I get giveaway two Kattee Crazy-Horse bags off of Amazon. You know, these are my favorite bags I use for my notary business. Plus I've slid a brand new HP laptop computer into each one of these. I've got webcams for the remote online notarization (the HD webcams from Logictech), plus a few other things (books and favorite journals and that kind of stuff). I love giving away free stuff. So if you happen to be in Montana and you're going to be here amongst the 150 or so notaries that are here for that, you are going to be entered in, just for...

Hey, good morning everybody. This is Bill Soroka, founder of NotaryCoach.com.
I'm kicking off this new series - Friday FAQ - live from Austin, Texas. This series is designed to answer some of the most common and frequently asked questions that notaries both brand new and seasoned ask repeatedly. I get these questions from our Tuesday Notary Titans call. I get them from email and from the coaching and mentor calls that I offer on the website NotaryCoach.com. So I thought it would be kind of cool to have a whole playlist every Friday where we can just talk about one of those most common questions.
Today I'm going talk about the printer specifications that you need to keep in mind when you're buying your first printer or upgrading your printer.
The first thing I want to talk about though, is what's expected whenever you print.
So the cool thing about working as a mobile notary and loan signing agent in particular, is that just about everything that you're...
This is Bill Soroka, founder of www.NotaryCoach.com and the sign and thrive notary training course and community. I'm coming live with you today, Monday, September 16th, 2019.
I want to talk about the notary symposium by Laura Biewer. I want to talk about that right now because we're coming up to the deadline for registering for that.
There are two notary symposiums this year. (See links below) There's one on October 5th in Irvine and then there's going to be one on November 16th in Rancho Cordova. The deadline for Irvine for October 5th is actually coming up here pretty quick and collectively there's only about 25 seats left to both events. So you've got 10 in one and only about 15 in the other. But guys, if you're thinking about joining us in a symposium, this is the time to make the decision. Book your ticket right now because they are either going to sell out, or they're going to cut off ticket sales.
The reason that you might want to go to a notary...
