|Admin was hardest for me getting started almost nine years ago.|
Remember, all the administration (and infrastructure that goes along with it) is on You!
So, how's your office set up? Laser printer? Mobile technology and devices, along with necessary office apps for scanning, electronic file handling, email, document setup, security, billing, account tracking, etc.?
Many here use a Notary Gadget app for organizing assignments and tracking receivables. Excel works just fine for me (and keeps me efficient); but I am also good at creating my own go-to forms and correspondence (worked in banking correspondence division).
I would avoid expensive training classes (TIPIC is enough) and useless directories. Work on your profile here, and market, market, market, as was said.
P.S. Market yourself as "Prime Time" notary, instead of a part time one
