So I was chatting with a few members of www.ROIbusinessclub.com and then asked how is your day going? 3 of them replied some variation of "yes! I have xx number of fresh contacts from xyz event" Now onto setting one-on-one meetings then do business right then"
Does anyone else see the issues as I do with this way of thinking?
To me the above example is same thing a cold calling! All hard work with very little return(less than 8% in most cases)! In this day and age you truly have to step back from the IMMEDIATE Sale! I have to find the article that stated that in 2012, we get an AVERAGE between 2,000 to 1 million ad impressions on our brain each day. Think of it this way-- If everyone viewed you as a $ sign only, what is your worth? Why would we even bother doing business with you?
By changing your thought process to BE OF SERVICE or I know you have heard of it also called "From the Heart" working as a business person you will be more successful! I promise you this since I have been/am in your shoes too! Right now on Dash Notary's 7 Year Business Plan I am 2 YEARS Ahead of schedule! Why? Because all of DN's advertising / marketing is NOT always about the sale...
Take ownership of your business both in thought process and online how?
Hi, Tonie! Yes, I actually went back to work for the City after I retired and after I finished taking a little time off to plan my daughter's wedding. I enjoy FRISCO ~ such a friendly town! I seem to recall that we met "way back in the day" (I think you were in real estate at the time???? but I thought we met at a NAPO event but could be......and probably am.........mistaken) I thought even then that you were someone to emulate. . . . a true mover and shaker! I still follow your career via LI/FB and am always encouraged by your optimism, tenacity, and energy. You are truly an amazing gal! I do a little notary work on the side myself and have started a vintage wedding rental business. I hope our paths continue to cross as I consider you a TRUE cheerleader and INSPIRATION for not only myself but many success minded women. Thanks for taking the time to contact me! A friend of mine in THE COLONY actually mentioned you at our bookclub meeting a few weeks back. You are well respected in the community where you reside and the greater Dallas area.
Marty & I have met many times throughout the years and you never know how your effecting others with your positivity, caring, and passion through what you do in life. Reach out and give everyone you meet a helpful hand even at your own expense. I promise you the "rewards of giving" far out-way the "monetary loss" of the giving. This letter is posted on my wall in the office now! Let who inspires you know today how important they are in your life, you never know how it might effect them...
So today I was previewing another notary company for doing work with and saw blatant Unauthorized Practice of Law aka UPL. As a Notary Public we CANNOT ever do this:
Forms Available Upon Request
Bill of Sale
Unsecured Loan Agreement
Texas State ID Replacement
Authorization for non-parent caregiver
Employment (I-9) verification
International Travel Release - Minors
↑ We NEVER provide forms to our clients for their protection. That is attorney's job. (only exception is if the notary is attorney in same state they also hold notary license in)
If you see this on a website or social media please be kind enough to call and ask them to remove it / not provide forms or they can lose their notary licenses by the Secretary of State.
Thank you for letting me do a Public Service Announcement ~ Warmly, Tonie Boaman
Q: My wife’s boss has accused me of a conflict of interest. I am a self-employed notary public and my wife is a bank loan officer. For years, I have been notarizing signatures on her loan documents. To be clear, I do not notarize her signature, only
During a recent argument between my wife and her manager, he said this arrangement constitutes a conflict, so she must stop using my services. I offered to work through a notary company in order to avoid receiving payments from the bank, but he also rejected this plan.
According to state regulations, I am legally allowed to notarize documents for my wife’s employer. Since the bank has no written policy forbidding it, this feels like a personal vendetta. What do you think I should do?
A: Although this sudden change is understandably upsetting, you must try to view the situation with logic instead of emotion. Because this issue involves your wife’s employment, you don’t want strong feelings to cloud your judgment.
Keep in mind that an activity may be legal, but risky or unwise nevertheless. Even if state law permits using your services, the bank could still be reasonably concerned about what happens if these documents are ever challenged. While they may have no specific policy regarding notaries, there is undoubtedly a general prohibition against conflicts of interest. Directing income to a family member would typically violate such a policy.
Regardless of the bank’s interests, however, you need to consider what will be best for your wife. Since she has been arguing with her boss, problems may have been brewing before the notary issue ever arose. Challenging this decision could further strain their relationship and possibly jeopardize her job security.
The bank apparently regards this matter as settled, so you would be wise to do the same. If you continue to fight this ruling, you could wind up winning the battle, but losing the war.
