Susi Sivkov (Presenter)
We all want to live our best lives and reach our fullest potential. But all too often, we get busy in our routines; we get bogged down in our old habits; and we wander off the path to our best selves. Susi will bring you three simple concepts that you can implement daily to get you back on track. You can count on having a couple of ‘ah ha’ moments and will walk away ready to THRIVE and FEEL FULLY ALIVE in your personal and professional life.
Gary Tabke (Presenter)
“Personal Safety for the Notary Signing Agent/Mobile Notary”
There is little more terrifying than finding one’s self in unfamiliar surroundings and under attack.
Like realtors, mobile notaries can face the same threatening scenarios that have resulted in robbery, assault and even murder, nationwide. Situational awareness and a planned response can not only be a deterrent but also empowering.
This retired street cop will instruct on preparedness, situational safety, quick and easy self-defense techniques and the identification and use of improvised weapons, all designed for your safety.
Bill Soroka (Presenter)
“The Extraordinary Notary”
The trap of mediocrity is an easy one to fall into. In fact, sometimes in our world today we are encouraged, even rewarded, to do “just enough” to get by, or get the job done. Why work harder to be better when good enough is, well, good enough? Notary Coach’s Bill Soroka is going to share his journey from mediocrity to extraordinary as a mobile notary and loan signing agent in America’s hottest housing market. He’ll show you how your past does not define you and with a commitment to authenticity, learning and to excellence, this could be your dream business too. Bill will share the exact strategies and daily actions he took to create a multiple six-figure notary gig while deepening relationships and experiencing more joy and self-confidence than ever before in his life. This industry is hot, ready, and ripe for innovation. This industry is ready for the extraordinary notary.
Don Hunsberger (Presenter)
“How to excel in Estate Planning Document Signings”
Learn the most compelling reasons for marketing to Estate Planning Attorneys to expand your notary business. Don Hunsberger, Attorney at Law, Estate Planning Attorney, in Tustin California will share the why an Attorney would use the services of a mobile notary in addition to in house notaries or rather than providing them himself directly. He will also discuss how an attorney relies on your journal to support the documents and Attorney after the fact, in a court of law. Even attorneys who specialize can have a wide variety of documents and signers, requiring the services of a professional notary who can provide service where and when it is needed. If you have the flexibility and are knowledgeable about Notary regulations, then you may be the right candidate for the job!
Jamie Liggins (Presenter)
“Overcoming Challenging Situations in Your Notary Career”
Jamie will give a short talk about what to do when life happens. Whether you are starting your career as a notary professional or seeking to reinvent an already established business, there are always challenges you will face. Jamie will be sharing professional and notary tips on how to adapt, re-establish and/or reinvent your notary career.
Laura Biewer, with co-presenter Valerie Barrett
“The Art of Collaboration”
As we discover ways to work with each other to grow our business, think about how powerful it would be if we not only shared our wins, our frustrations, our overflow of jobs, but also looked to each other for other skill sets that we can share/barter with each other. Running a business takes many skill sets, and when you are the only employee, what do you do when there are skills needed that you do not have? You can hire professionals and if you can afford to do so that is great; however, you may have colleagues who are accessible and able to share the skills they have brought to the notary world.
By keeping it “in-house” so to speak, we help each other in ways that grow our business without directly competing, and Grow our Network, which Grows our Networth! Hear about how successful notaries have used this strategy and have an opportunity to try out the first level of collaboration during the workshop.
