If Trump hired you as a Notary, would you get fired?

Filed under: Marketing Articles — admin @ 8:13 am

Many Notaries love Trump while others despise him. America is so polarized due to Trump that if the ice caps melt, we are all in hot water (or frigid water.) But, what types of things do Notaries do that would get them fired by Trump that we are now tolerating?

As a note, I would say that all Americans are feeling Trump’s presence since the moment he was elected. People have become a lot more confident (or afraid). Political correctness has immediately gone to the wayside. It used to be 80% happy holidays and 20% merry Christmas. Now it is 80% merry Christmas even in November. We’re back to the 1960’s in many ways — riots and all. I believe that the American business culture will also tighten up and start firing people who don’t perform. We’ll wait and see. I’m more particular these days since the election. In June I was feeling the Bern — Now, I want to fire someone!

If you show up late without calling — you’re fired…
Trump’s time is worth a million dollars per second. You may not think a second is much time, but to a highly successful or impatient person — it is.

If you make a mistake…
If you make an honest mistake, perhaps that is okay if it doesn’t happen again and if you fix the mistake. But, what if you don’t know what you are doing and Don catches on to you?

If you are rude…
Trump doesn’t like rude people. Of course, people think he’s rude. Or is he just opinionated? If you are providing a service, there is no excuse for a bad attitude!

If you don’t know the answer to a question…
Trump would expect all Notaries to be able to answer all basic questions about Notary law and loan signing. If you don’t know the basics, I’m sure he would not hire you again. On the other hand, he probably wouldn’t expect you to know the Escrow end of the business.

If you didn’t dress well…
Being a Notary is a serious job. You are dealing with half a million dollar loans. You should dress for the part. Perhaps you should dress like James Bond. Ken says dress British, think Yiddish. But, if you live in Idaho, even the Jews there don’t think Yiddish. So, we’ll stick to the British part.

If you don’t want to make American Notaries great again…
Then you’re just plain fired.

The main thing is that you need to be at the top of your game. This means knowing your Notary law inside out, knowing your signing agent knowledge, being an expert at marketing your service, getting reviews, getting certified by at least three agencies including 123notary, and writing a great notes section about your service. Very few Notaries realize how critical it is to be a master of your trade. To survive in this competitive industry you don’t have a choice. So get on your game, otherwise — you’re fired!

  1. With this blog entry you have managed to insult just about everyone. You need less opinionated writers and have your writers write about important notary issues without bringing personal feelings into the mix. I don’t care if you felt the Bern. I am of the Yiddish culture you mock. I do dress nicely. You have lost one reader.
