How I Lost THREE Major Notary Clients and the Lessons I learned From Them

Uncategorized Oct 21, 2019

Hey everybody, this is Bill Soroka, founder of and the Sign and Thrive Course and Community.

You know, when I first started out as a mobile notary and loan signing agent, I really had no clue what I was doing.

I had no formal training.

I had no idea that the national notary association existed.

I didn't know there were signing companies. And back then there really wasn't a whole lot of training options anyway....

But even as I got started in this business, I really had one foot out the door already. I was a passionate serial entrepreneur, and I was trying to manage five or six different little ventures, startups at the time - none of which were making money. So when I got the opportunity to make 150 bucks an hour as a loan signing agent, obviously I jumped on it.

You know, I didn't have a college degree. I didn't think anybody would pay this kind of money for this. So when I got in, I treated this business like an ATM machine. I...

Hello everybody! It's Friday FAQ!

This is Bill Soroka, founder of and the Sign and Thrive Notary Training Course and Community.

Thank you for keeping up with all the great questions coming in. You know, you can always email questions to [email protected], or you can set up a Mentor call with me at in the upper right hand corner. It's real easy to do. Just pick a time that works for you.

Today we're going to talk about what the difference between a Surety Bond (otherwise known as a Bond), and E&O Insurance, (otherwise known as Errors and Omissions Insurance). I get this question a lot, and there's a lot of confusion, especially if you're new to the industry. So let's just lay out the main differences, starting first with a Surety Bond.

Some States require that you have a Surety Bond to even become a Notary Public. But that's not required in all States, so it's important that we know that. It's still probably a good...

5-Steps to Claim Your Role as CEO of Your Mobile Notary and Loan Signing Business

Uncategorized Oct 14, 2019

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...

Hi everybody.

This is Bill Soroka, founder of and the Sign and Thrive Notary Training Course and Community.

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...

Irvine Notary Symposium Key Takeaways And Review

Uncategorized Oct 07, 2019

 *Full Transcription Below*.

Hey everybody, this is Bill Soroka, founder of 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...

Friday FAQ: Should I have an LLC for My Mobile Notary and Loan Signing Business?

Uncategorized Oct 04, 2019

*Full Transcription Below*

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 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...

Uncategorized Oct 03, 2019

*Full Transcript Below*

Hi everybody. This is Bill Soroka, founder of 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 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...

Can You Believe Notaries Actually Do This???

Uncategorized Sep 24, 2019

*Full transcription below

Hi everybody, this is Bill Soroka, founder of 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

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 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...
