She took all my business away!

It is not fair, say some. 123notary allows signing companies to advertise. The truth is that we can’t tell the difference between a notary and a signing service. After all, signing services are notaries who hire other notaries. Large or small, they are offering the same service you are. A notary is a one person signing service — still a signing service. 2nd, signing services pay us the same fee that others do, and generally drop out of their spots a lot faster than single notaries do.

But, there was one Virginia Notary who was really upset. There was a signing service there that is very established. They have been around for years. He said that once that company got on our Virginia Notary Public page, that his phone stopped ringing. Sure, that person got the top spot, but they paid for it. Other signing companies in other metros sometimes start out high, and then downgrade to a preferential, but not this one.

The guy rambled on and on and on and wouldn’t stop talking. He was so rude that he wouldn’t let me get a word into the conversation. The “Big bad signing company” that took his business away from him has an individual who is always polite and professional. I told him that if I had a job, I wouldn’t be able to hire someone like him, because he rants and raves and doesn’t listen. I want to hire someone professional — signing service or not. Maybe I hurt his feelings, but honestly, how can you survive in any business if you don’t carry yourself like a professional? Instead of whining about these bigger outfits, learn what they are doing right and emulate them.

According to spiritual principles, you can never become rich if you resent the wealthy!



  1. This happened to me but the other folk proved themselves incompetent and my clients came back with stipulations and we’re all happy happy.

  2. It’s been my experience that customers are actually very hard to steal…when they’re happy with what they have.Contentment, trust, and familiarity are st strong binding forces in any relationship be it business or personal. If you can loose clients that easy, they weren’t that happy to begin with and just keeping you until something better comes along. That doesn’t always mean cheaper. Take good care of your customers and they will take good care of you.
