The world’s largest advanced-level notary collaboration just became more accessible than ever before.
Listening to feedback from notaries across the country, me and my fellow founders of the Notary Business Builder learning community (NBB), Laura Biewer and Jennifer Neitzel, have officially made the advanced mastermind program available separate from the TOMM app by Notary Coach.
What does this mean for notaries who want training and support?
It means you can gain access to some of the best teachers in the industry, as well as their online courses & technology, and their live teaching classes every month for a fraction of the original cost of membership.
You can now purchase NBB and TOMM separately! And even if you decide to buy them both, it still costs less than before. In fact, the Standard version of TOMM (the only app that helps notaries get new customers) is FREE! You can get TOMM here. And if/when you’re ready, you can easily upgrade...
This blog article features a call to action for those avante-garde notaries that already know they want to be ahead of the curve with evolving technology. If you want to skip the article and register for the EscrowTab network, and get access to their free IPEN software on your own device, you can do so here.
The mortgage industry consumes about 2.2 billion pieces of paper every year (50-60 million of which are estimated to be notarized), which, depending on their size, will require a minimum of 117,000-200,000 trees to supply.
According to some industry estimates, there are about 950 million other non-mortgage related documents notarized every year, and many of those use more than a single page.
So as notaries public, somewhere around 4-5 billion sheets of paper pass through our hands every single year.
That’s unsustainable for a few reasons:
There’s still a little piece of me that can’t believe how much being a Notary Public has changed my life.
I remember in that first year of implementing my Daily Do’s, when those $20,000-$30,000 months started stacking up, I’d wake up-no, I’d pop out of bed, each morning and pinch myself. Could this be real? Legal? Legit? Are we allowed to enjoy what we do this much, helping people, and making more money than we ever had in our lives?
I’ve been able to help clients in ways I never knew existed, and I was able to do so when they needed me most-their best days…and their worst.
The evolution of my role and business as a Notary Public also brought me to you, my fellow notaries across the country. Through the years, there have been thousands of connections, inspirations, collaborations, and, my favorite, friendships.
I am grateful.
And further, I am surrounded by other...

Think about the three basic tools you must have for every Notary appointment. I am not talking about all the things we consider a best practice to carry with you, or the fun office supplies we carry to make us more efficient or professional, Just the basics.
What must you have to perform your duties as a Notary Public?
I remember being at the end of 14 or 15 hour days, at appointment number ten or eleven, exhausted, and just plain refusing to carry my Notary bag across even one more threshold. I’d grab three blue pens, my stamp, and my journal, and keep my fingers crossed that everything went smooth and easy for that appointment. I mean, worst case scenario,...
I just moved into a new home in northern Washington after living the last 18 months in fully furnished AirBnB's. I find myself needing everything from coasters, lamps, & garbage cans, to landscapers and exterminators (Did you know Washington has a “spider season”? They certainly didn’t mention that in the sales brochure).
When I need something, a service especially, I go to two places- my network for referrals, and/or a Google search. My network up here in Washington is nothing like it was in Phoenix, so if my real estate agent or AirBnB host don’t have a referral for me, guess what-off to Uncle Google I go.
Most consumers skip the referral part and go straight to Google, where they make a decision on who to call based mainly on whose information appears on their screen and the quality and number of their reviews.
When a consumer types in their search for say, “Notary Near Me,”...
