It's like yoga for my mind!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend and hopefully had some good, quality family time! Last week was really strange. I have definitely noticed more calls for closings during the month (and not just at month end) so that means Lenders are getting busier with the lower rate boom we had a couple of weeks ago. Just as predicted! That's GREAT news! What I've also noticed is the Lenders seem to be understaffed because I haven't seen so many last minute cancellations or receipt of docs since I started my mobile notary business 2 and a half years ago. I had 4 cancellations last week alone. 4 our of 12 appointments! I haven't had that many in a year. I also had 2 sets of docs arrive at

A Brief History Lesson

Last year, I did a presentation at the Coppell Senior Center on the history of Notaries Public. When I started researching the topic I didn't realize how many interesting things I'd find. Did you know that "Scribes" were the earliest known chroniclers of official communications in recorded history? A Roman slave named Tiro was the first known "notae" for writing down the speeches of Cicero.

Mobile notaries! Need some encouragement....??

I saw THE BEST news last week! Refinance applications were up 39% for the highest level since January, 2016 due to the biggest one-week rate drop in a decade. That's a 58% increase in volume from a year ago*. That's a LOT more business for mobile notaries!! Mortgage rates fell for the 4th straight week in a row last week, which is great news as we're marching in to the spring buying season in one of the BEST PLACES TO LIVE IN THE COUNTRY - N. TEXAS! Expect to see lots of purchase and refinance loans to close in the coming months. Remember, if you need individual mentoring or a marketing plan to capture all this business, give me a shout!

A Notary Coach walks into a bar....

Good morning and Happy April Fool's Day. I promise no tricks today....just a quick update on a fun notary meet up yesterday. Normally, I'd say "NO" to a networking event on a Sunday. That's my rest and recharge day (i.e. my one lazy day a week) and I cherish it! But yesterday was different. Bill Soroka, The Notary Coach from Phoenix, AZ was in town and had coordinated a DFW area meet-up at the Omni. I've observed Bill's career from afar and have always admired his approach to business because we both strongly agree: A successful business is all about BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS!! There was a great group of people who met at the Omni, and I was shocked to meet Notary Signing Agents from Arkan
