Every National Bosses’ Day is a special day for me. It is a day where I can celebrate being my own Boss to both my Notary Service and Wedding Officiant businesses. When I began my journey, there were so many naysayers. I had people that I thought were in my corner saying that I needed

An example of a dire situation is when a person is admitted into ICU. There are tracheotomies, ventilators and other harsh conditions, such as paralysis that sometimes impede a signing when a person has been admitted into this ward.

Sometimes family members get away with having those in care allowing paperwork to be notarized because of the “I Love Them” factor (signing and allowing a document to be drafted sight unseen and notarized because they ‘feel’ their relative has their best interest at heart).
2017 is here and it is a time for renewal, for looking back at 2016 and reflecting on the happenings of the year’s past. It’s a time not to just look at the past year’s events, it is a time to press forward with forward thinking. At times, thinking forward is difficult for some of
“Why can’t I just send the documents I need to provide by mail and sign/apply online?” The reason…
