Notaries must answer in the affirmative that they are notaries and provide at least the state that they are commissioned in.

    Overview: This book is for anyone who wishes to become an entrepreneur, and specifically notaries. It is a step-by-step guideline as to how to create a business. Authors Daniel C. Lewis and Judith P. Lawrence are from opposite sides of the country, having connected on Linkedin, and having decided to combine their decades of business expertise to help others to either start a new business or make a transition to a different business easier. Daniel, who frequently lectures about starting a new career, knows first-hand the kind of hard work it takes to develop a new business. Judith, for whom this is a second life career, knows what it is like to be knocked all the way down and fight to come all the way back. This interactive book is a combination of facts and funny stories. The readers will learn about the PPP theory … Policies, Procedures and Profits which will enhance their businesses immediately.
    Description:  Judith Lawrence was employed by a law firm for many years and suddenly, without revocation and at 60, had no job. After some serious struggles she reinvented herself and today is a business owner and entrepreneur. She delivers a strong message in this book that it is never too late and that with hard work and determination you can turn around your life. There are presently 4.5 million notaries throughout the United States. Achieving genuine success as a notary entrepreneur in the past has been can be complicated but now,with the help of this book, a notary can become the most profitable and connected notary in a specific area. Thanks to the exhaustive research of two of the most sought after professional notaries in the country, this book compiles a simple step-by-step process to be efficient and profitable. Inasmuch as various states have their own specific guidelines, we have inserted links so that the readers can check their own specific state to determine how things should be done. We believe that the readers will find this indispensable. The sections range from general business, to notary business, to technology including social media. There is also a section entitled “Did You Know” which has numerous things that a notary can do in addition to basic notarization. Policies, procedures and Profits are the theme of the book. These triple “P’s” gives the reader an unrelenting view of effective, efficient business practices. We also touch on how to become a Certified Notary Signing Agent and how to become a Mobile Signing Agent. We are hopeful that these two functions of a notary will be our next book. Steve Jobs once said “Great things in business are never done by one person. They’re done by a team of people.” The authors would like the readers to use this book to be their support and the authors to be their support team. The authors are both coaches and will offer additional coaching services.
