|heart. This is worth repeating. |
If you need money to pay the rent and put food on the table, do not pay money for loan signing courses, notary boot camps, listing directories and notary "educational" videos. The "educators" will gladly take your money.
Think logically. The world has changed. Why would you want to learn about a dying industry? Its hopeless. There is no debate The profits of the most seasoned notaries are dwindling. Your "competiton" is notaries who don't need the money, are looking for a hobby and want to take the car out for a joy ride. Interest rates are soaring. The volume of Refi mortgages is getting crushed.
The labor market is hot, particularly for lower paying jobs like $25 an hour plus lots of benefits. Don't get mesmerized by watching another notary educational video. Start looking for a real job first thing tomorrow morning. With a bit of luck, you will find a legitimate job within 4-6 weeks. Don't give the mobile notary business one more minute of your time. Don't donate your scarce funds to purchase a loan signing course.
The only thing worse than being a new young inexperienced notary is to be an old experienced notary. Then you will be really screwed. You will thank me later.
