He made $35,000 a month his first year in business?

He what? He made how much? Am I dreaming? Who is this guy?

I just got off the phone with him. I will not disclose his location or name for his privacy. I just talked with a gentleman who has multiple listings on 123notary.com. He says these listings bring him so much business that the phone is ringing off the hook and he is reeling in the business. But, $35,000 a month? He says this is his first year in business. He hires people on salary to drive around and do signings. He pays for the car and other expenses himself and pays them an hourly salary (not big bucks, so don’t get your hopes up). The sheer volume of business this guy is getting is amazing.

Honestly, from talking to him, he sounds like a very cool guy, and very motivated. He fits the profile of a winner in my book. But, still, this type of success is unprecedented in someone’s first year. I understand that the market is picking up for notaries, but still. We have another gentleman who is running a very similar type of operation and very successfully. He has notaries in four or five states and pays them on salary. He gets business right and left and has a huge staff in the office and in the field.

So, if your business is not all it can be, think about what the personality traits of a success story are. There are many successes on 123notary, and you can be one of them. Be an up beat person who gets the job done and doesn’t create obstacles for others. If others create obstacles for you, then create systematic policies for dealing with these problems instead of complaining. Remember — winners find solutions. My idea is to try to adopt the mind-set of someone whose business is off the hook, and that will help you be one of the notaries who is on your way to a huge success!

  1. I love success stories! Why not call him what he is – a signing service! He is not DOING the signings, whether they are employees or not.

  2. Is that his gross or his net. I am skeptical of this story. Where would you find a notary willing to work for a salary? Unless someone offered me a salary that at least matched my fees I would not agree to that. And I would not offer such a deal to someone else unless I had a crystal ball that told me there were X number of signing to be done in the year ahead.

  3. My opinion that he is lying. I don’t think you realy can make business from notary since you nay charge only set amount per notary. This really futuristic

  4. Why share only the story and not share what type of 123notary listings he has and what else he does that brings him so much volume of signings?

  7. That’s great, but yes he is a signing company. Paying the notaries every two weeks so he has a huge payroll to meet and a lot of cash out of his pocket. An accounting staff to call all the dead beat companies that take a long time to pay and he ends up eating the fees. We all want to make a lot of money, but it does take a lot of money to make a lot of money. That part of real life hasn’t changed at all.
