Becoming a Notary

How Do I Get Started?

Being a confident and competent notary starts at the very beginning with your training and tool choices.

Laura’s expertise will help you navigate the process of becoming a notary, starting with what format of class to take.  She will also help you with the selection of tools, ones that will be the most cost-effective, flexibile—and best protect you, the notary. The best part is all purchases are processed and backed through the NNA directly, as you are buying from an NNA representative, not a franchise or contractor. There are no extra costs involved for the personal shopper experience Laura can provide. Her expertise is her gift to you and completely complementary.

To help you with starting or renewing a California commission, here is your simple 8-step guide produced by the National Notary Association.

 

What Tools Do I Need?

As an an authorized Product Consultant  for the National Notary Association, Laura is able to help you choose the best tools for you.  Using her expertise as a Certified Instructor for California Notary Mandated Training classes and N.N.A. Loan Signing Agent Course, as was well as 16 years running her own successful mobile notary business, Laura will guide you through from step 1 until you are a valid commissioned notary.

Remember not every notary needs every notary tool.  Choosing your notary supplies depends on how you plan to use your commission and will determine what other products and services would be helpful in fulfilling your role in deterring fraud.

“In December I invested in Laura’s one-on-one class for Trust/Living Wells.  Laura is incredibly knowledgeable and the class is logically laid out with excellent materials.  After taking Laura’s class I began attending networking meetings like The Estate Planning Group Network where I have met Attorneys that are focused on helping clients with their Trust needs.  I now have a few Attorneys that consistently call me to do Trust Signings in their office or in their clients homes.  I would highly recommend taking Laura’s class, the learning opportunity is big and price is small."
