Are you a residence or a business owner?

Filed under: Business Tips — admin @ 11:05 am

Many of you Notaries behave more like a residence than a business owner. It is not very professional. When I call you I get a “hello?” and not a “Sampson signings, Judy speaking.” I am not the only one who cares about professionalism. The other thing is that if you are eating dinner you often refuse to talk. If you are a business forget about dinner and focus on the task at hand. Do you complain that people call you on a Sunday? That means you think of yourself as a residence. If you get mad when people call you after 9pm that means you think of your operation as a residence.

The fact is that whether you are registered or not, since you take money for offering a service, or are offering to do so, technically you could be legally construed as a business. So, get registered to keep it legal and start thinking of your self as a business. Maybe then you will start acting like a business.

  1. I have found this to be a major issue with other Notaries and Small Businesses I deal with. When I have to ask “Is this the ACME corporation?” I am not speaking with the boss or someone who cares. I have as should everyone a seperate phone for business a throw away flip phone from any carrier is less than $35 a month. The biggest thing I think IMHO someone can do to become a Business to themselves is file for their DBA… The name of your business even if it is your own… is something to own.

    My state just made it harder to do by having to file downtown where the $16 file fee becomes $36 after parking… Well they said I can mail it in and I have $1 for 2 stamps (make sure they send it back) I got the application offline simple as 123 Adobe LOL..
