VERY solid, practical advice. Read and learn!

If you're a newbee and take $50.00 signings, as I did, PLEASE read further.

I log ALL costs related to my notary business and after 3 years I figured it was time to find out where I was at financially. I also include all auto expenses (mileage) in the cost.

I took all income and all costs and found that 2/3 of my income was expenses. That means that for a $50.00 signing my profit was $16.67. Not good.

Now if you figure the minimum time it takes to do a simple signing, here's what you get.
Pre-sign time: 1/2 hour minimum.
Travel to site: 1/2 hour minimum
Signing time: 1 hour minimum
Travel home: 1/2 hour minimum
Invoice/ship: 1/2 hour minimum
Minimum Total: 3 hours

You're making less than $6.00 per hour.

Go to McDonald's, they pay more and there's less stress.
