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...

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...
Hi everybody! This is Bill Soroka, founder of NotaryCoach.com and the sign and thrive, notary training course and community.
It is crazy busy right now. I'm an awesome time to be in this business, so I'm glad that you're in it with me. It feels like last month didn't even end and its rolling right through the beginning of this month. Very exciting time to be in this business. Interest rates are ridiculously low. The housing market's booming. Refinances are off the charts right now, and our phones are ringing and dinging and that's really great for our business. So if you're in this business and you're hustling, keep up that hustle. Keep up the enthusiasm, try to have some fun in your business because this is what it's all about right now.
That being said, whenever the times are really good and business is really going strong, there's two major pitfalls that we tend to fall into and I learned them the hard way. So I'd like to share them with you.
So maybe you can avoid making the...
Hi everybody! This is Bill Soroka with www.NotaryCoach.com and the Sign & Thrive training course and community.
Today we get to talk about how to create good mojo for your loan signing appointments. We're going to talk about what mojo is and why that's important - and why am I even talking about it.
Mojo has all kinds of different definitions. What we're talking about here is the good energy that attracts the kind of people, opportunities, and the circumstances that you want in your life.
You know those types of people that you meet, those you want to be around - it just seems like there's something exciting, something happening with them they exude. They're experiencing joy in life and it makes you want to be around them. That's the type of opportunity that we want to create for our loan signing appointments.
Why is that important? You never know who's sitting across the table from you in this business. In a heavily relationship-based business, you're...
