Studying to be Elite Certified is worth $533 per minute

Filed under: Certification & Communication Skills — admin @ 8:21 am

Most Notaries don’t want to bother studying. They are lazy, not well educated, and have a bad attitude in general. Additionally, most of them do not care about their work, don’t care about safety precautions, and most of all don’t care how they treat me. The purpose of being Elite Certified is to prove that you are one of the good Notaries who does care and who represents the top 2% of Notaries in terms of knowledge.

It is unclear how long it takes to study for the elite test. That depends on how much you already know. Let’s say it takes 10 hours to study — what are the benefits if you will be in business for another ten years?

$14 more per signing.
Elite Certified Notaries get paid $14 more per signing based on a poll than uncertified Notaries.

Double your work
I cannot say how much extra work Elite Certified signers get, but their clicks are far higher than the rest, so I will estimate realistically that it is about double.

Before vs. After
If you were getting five signings per week at $100, and you get ten signings per week in the long run at $114. that means you go from an income of $500 per week to $1140, but your expenses don’t go up. Over the course of ten years that is $570,000 in income compared to $250,000 which is $320,000 extra income. So, your ten hours of study netted you $320,000 extra income. Ten hours of study is 600 minutes which means that each minute of study is worth $533 in the long run.

Most Notaries typically make very bad financial decisions. Most of them chose not to get educated. Most of them chose not to try hard at their job or career. Most of them chose and choose not to study hard for my tests. They would prefer to spend time at a birthday party or working for $20 per hour rather than to study for the elite which is worth $533 per minute! If you are having trouble making up your mind, just ask yourself —

Do you prefer 30 cents per minute or $533 per minute?
Most Notaries actions suggest they prefer 30 cents which is exactly what they get if they get paid at all.

  3. The proof is based on my calculations based on how many jobs Notaries who are elite actually get. The math is very rough and not conclusive by scientific standards but useful business math none the less.

  4. That made zero sense. The difference is $14.00 per signing. If you were doing 5 signing per week and later began to get 10 signing per week unless there was some concrete means of measuring where the additional signing came from you have know way of concluding your elite certification is the source of the additional weekly signing.

    Furthermore your views and opinions of notaries are unfounded, reckless and disturbing. “Mostly notaries don’t do this, most notaries won’t do that” again unless you’re taking a survey of a large population of notaries from different parts of the country you’re making huge assumptions about individuals who you know nothing about.
