Hi Erica,

I'm a newbie and figured it might be helpful for you to hear from me.

1) There's a lot of good information to be obtained from the seasoned professionals on this site so it's important that you read the postings, Search the archives, Read the postings, Search the Archives and Search the archives and listen to what's being said. Try not to be too sensitive when some make comments that offend you or hurt your feelings. Definitely don't take it personally. They are not singling you out. NotaryRotary is not for the tender-hearted. If you are tender-hearted then the best thing to do is use the Search button and read and learn from others but don't ask questions.

I think I can safely say that every day/night someone new types the same question you typed "How do I get started in this business?" The answer is always the same - the answers you received.

2) Don't buy any printers, business cards or other equipment; don't join any other notary associations; don't sign on with any website builders until you've searched this board for suggestions, otherwise you will waste your money. I promise you that you will. Last month I don't know what got into me. I went into a store to purchase a PCL6 printer because after researching NotRot (NotaryRotary) I knew it was what I needed. But lo and behold, when I got home and set the printer up I realized it had everything except PCL6! I'm still scratching my head trying to figure that one out. I must have been hoodwinked or bamboozled.

Finally, 3) I check my profile at least once a week and believe it or not I always find something to improve or a correction to fix. Your profile on this site really is your billboard or business card. Keep tweaking yours until it's perfect.

Good luck to you - your sister newbie.
