I’m frequently asked, “Mark, should I wait to take the Loan Signing System Training Course until after I have received my notary commission?”
The answer is absolutely not.
Let me be the first to tell you that becoming a notary public loan signing agent is NOT a get rich quick scheme — it is a legitimate profession that thousands of people are doing right now, today, to make great money working for themselves.
There will be a learning curve when you first begin since you will have to learn a brand new skill. And the fact of the matter is you can’t learn how to become a notary public loan signing agent who makes anywhere from $75 to $200 per hour long appointment in an evening or two.
Just like you can't learn to be a chef in an evening or two... or learn how to hit a golf ball in a day or two.
The reality is that learning how to navigate a borrower through a set of loan documents will take some studying and you will want to do that BEFORE you get your notary commission in the mail.
Learning How To Be A Notary Loan Signing Agent Isn't Rocket Science — But It Doesn't Happen Overnight
While the content you are going to learn is far from complicated, you will need to train yourself to pay attention to detail… this means learning where the borrower needs to sign, date, and initial. And just as importantly, where they DON’T need to sign, date, and initial. One misplaced signature can ruin a mortgage transaction.
You’ll also need to learn the most commonly asked questions borrowers have during loan signing appointments and how to answer them.
And if you have never worked in the real estate industry, there’s some terminology that you’ll want to become familiar with.
Just like any new job, these things will take a little bit of time.
Think about it this way — you are asking someone to give you $75 to $200 for an appointment that takes about an hour. As such, it’s safe to assume there will be some learning involved. Why else would notary signing agents get paid so much money?
The great news is that Loan Signing System’s five star-rated online training course will teach you everything you need to know in the simplest, clearest way possible: through step-by-step videos and hands-on practice with real loan documents.
So why do I bring up the amount of time involved in learning to become a notary public loan signing agent?
Because your time is VALUABLE! And as the old saying goes…
Time is money.
How To Utilize Your Start-Up Time to Maximize Your Success As A Notary Public Loan Signing Agent
Many of my Loan Signing System students ask me about the most effective way to budget their time in the beginning stages of building their business, and here is what I have found works best:
Take the Loan Signing System training course at the same time you register for your notary commission.
While you’re waiting for your notary commission to come in the mail (which typically takes about a month), study the instruction videos, real set of loan documents, and cheat sheets I provide in Loan Signing System’s course modules. That way, by the time your physical notary commission arrives, you’re prepared to accept loan signing jobs and make money immediately — not one day later, two weeks later, or even a month after you become a notary public… but the very day your commission is delivered.
Taking my course will ensure that the moment your commission shows up in your mailbox:
Because although you cannot start doing loan signing assignments until you are officially a notary public, that doesn’t mean that you cannot start learning how to do loan signings in the meaning.
Putting in the time and energy to learn your craft ahead of time will make you ready to accept any loan signing job that comes your way… immediately.
If you wait for your notary commission to arrive in the mail before learning these key skills, it can delay your ability to start making money as a notary loan signing agent by several weeks or even months — meaning, waiting to take Loan Signing System’s training course until you receive your notary commission will literally cost you money.
And every day you’re not doing loan signings is a day’s work of income that you can never make up.
This is why it is critical to use the downtime while you are waiting for your notary commission to get a jump start on learning how to use it to make money as a loan signing agent as soon as possible.
Don't Wait Until You Have Your Notary Commission to Start Learning How to be a Loan Signing Agent.
Waiting for your notary commission to come in the mail before you how to be a notary loan signing agent is like a basketball player waiting for the first basketball tournament to practice shooting baskets.
And just like you can’t learn how to play basketball in a day, you shouldn’t try to learn how to become a loan signing agent in a day — the time you devote to learning this new skill now will pay dividends for years to come, so don't delay.
Remember, you are starting a lucrative small business. Give yourself the best chance for success. Use the free time while you are waiting for your notary commission to perfect your craft.
I’m Mark, I teach Loan Signing System, and I look forward to teaching you how to become a top-producing notary public loan signing agent today!
