Mobile Notaries are self-employed business people who work for themselves and provide a vital service to their community. Not only do they provide a vital service required in any economy that depends on commerce and free trade. This is an ancient concept and there are certain documents, which are not valid without a notary's seal of approval.
The ancient Egyptians and Greeks employed notaries in Biblical times. Latin 'SCRIBAE' - these clerks or scribes who took notes and minutes of important meetings, events, and decisions from the ruling authority. They also made copies of both Public and Private documents. The Notary Public is a quintessential ancient officer whose principal duty it was to witness the signing of important documents and to administer oaths.

Being a notary public is a great career choice for many individuals and in most cases can advance your career development, as it gives you an additional skill set and the opportunity to earn some extra income to pursue your ambitions.
There are certain fundamental skills you will need to learn and acquire to be effective and successful while not exposing yourself to undue liability or risks.
First you will have to become familiar with the process and procedure for becoming a notary in your local jurisdiction. It is different everywhere, you need to check your specific rule but contacting the authorizing department. If you want to link to your state's official notary authority website, click here.
As you work thorough the process to become a notary public, become familiar with what a notary is and the duties to be performed in your state by a notary. Rules are different from locality to locality. Discover how documents are to be correctly notarized. This is also a perfect time to start brushing up on your people skills. You'll need them!
Once you get your license or commission, it will be time to go to work. I strongly suggest you find a mentor for the first 3 to 6 months in the business. It might cost you a few buck, but it can be the best investment you make in your career. I strongly prefer this approach to any class you can take. It can have a lasting effect and you will have at least one friend in the business when you're finished.
Mentorship will give practical insight in dealing with unusual situations, controlling the appointment, opportunities as a loan signing agent, how to locate clients, vocabulary, setting your fees, running your business, and much more. Expect to pay about $300 for a good mentor, who gives you quality one on one time.
If you add Loan Signing Agent to your resume, it is reasonable to work 10 hours per week, and charge an average of $150 per appointment; you would earn approximately $50,000 per year. There are few other opportunities that allow you to earn that much so quickly. A Loan Signing Agent is simply a Notary Public who has specialized training and is familiar with common legal documents, and in the presentation and notarization of mortgage loan documents.
Getting a notary commission is relatively simple and easy, but building a truly successful notary practice will take some time and specific actions, to be realized. It's actually a very easy and fun business as long as you know what is expected of you, you deal in integrity and don't waste your valuable time on marketing that yield zero results.
