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...

You know, recently I was having dinner with some friends and the topic of integrity came up. And as we made our way around the table talking about what integrity meant to us, it became very clear that everyone has a different opinion or definition of what integrity means. And that got me thinking because integrity is something really important to me. And I think to create a sustainable business as a mobile notary and loan signing agent that you can really be proud of, you must have integrity.
In fact, that's one of my four pillars to really building this business. I've talked about this before for in a couple of different blog articles:
It's End of Month (EOM) and I know you guys are busy - I'm crazy busy too and I love it.
You know one of the things I love about this business is the diversity that it brings. There are so many ways to be of service so many people to meet - so many ways to generate revenue. And right now, one of the more popular ways, of course, is the loan signing side of the business.
This is probably one of the best markets I've ever seen for loan signing agents. I know many of us are out there taking advantage of this right now, and really out there hustling this last week of the month.
Still, with that said, I'm still a major proponent of general notary work, which is basically just all the other work that the notary does outside the loan signings.
You know when having that level of diversity - another income stream, in general notary work, is going to help you create sustainability in your business. It buffers you against any type of economic movement.
Now in many states these...

You know, about every week I get a half a dozen emails from people who became notarties. Maybe because their company paid for it for them, they thought it would be cool at some point, or maybe they became a notary just because it served a purpose at some particular point in their lives. But then they haven't done much with it. And so now they reach out and they ask, "how can I monetize my notary commission?" "How can I make money as a notary public?".
So if you are looking for ways to monetize your commission, if you're looking for a way to maybe make a living as a mobile notary and loan signing agent, or maybe you just want to make some decent money as a side hustle, then this week's live is for you.
This is an exciting time to be a notary public because across the country in many states, they have increased the notary fees that we can charge. Not...
