From Underappreciated Electrician to Thriving Signing Agent Business Owner Earning $72,000 His First Year
Welcome to another inspiring edition of Loan Signing System’s 'On the Road' series where we interview Joseph of Central Florida.
Working as an electrician, he felt unappreciated and replaceable, despite his significant skills and responsibilities.
His boss’s constant reminders of his expendability left him demoralized and seeking a way out.
Watch the full interview below as he shares his journey:
The Spark That Ignited Change: Joe's Life Before Loan Signing System
In December 2021, Joseph decided it was time for a change.
He handed in his notice, ready to embark on a new chapter as a notary loan signing agent, following a dream to become an entrepreneur.
He knew he had to take control of his future, stating, “I was seeking something better, something where I knew I needed to be an entrepreneur. I just didn't know what direction to take."
Proving the Doubters Wrong: Triumph Through Perseverance
Becoming a notary signing agent in March 2022, Joseph faced skepticism and doubt, yet he turned that doubt into fuel.
“If I have somebody in my ear saying, ‘Oh man, I don't think you can do that. I'm going to sit back and say, ‘watch this.”
His income journey tells a story of consistent growth, from $1,700 in his first month to reaching highs of $5,500 by September, showcasing his determination to succeed.
His first year in the field saw him earning an impressive $70,000, and he is on track to surpass that, projecting $82,000 for 2023.
More than just financial gains, Joseph found a renewed sense of life, stating, “We don't just survive anymore. I can actually live now. And those are two different things.”
Life Beyond the Job Site: A Father’s Freedom
The shift to a notary signing agent has afforded Joseph not just financial stability, but the priceless ability to be present for his family.
As a father of three, he now enjoys the flexibility to attend his daughters’ cheerleading competitions without asking anyone for permission, a freedom he never experienced as an electrician.
A Community of Support and Inspiration
Joseph’s success is not just a personal victory, it’s an inspiring story for the blue-collar community.
He actively shares his journey and insights in Facebook groups, continuing to inspire others to believe in their potential.
His advice for aspiring entrepreneurs?
Recognize your 'why,' treat your venture as a business, network, learn from peers, and view failures as growth opportunities.
Embrace the mindset shift from employee to business owner, and remember, success is not instantaneous - it evolves through conscious effort and adaptability.
