Notary Blog of Sonita M. Leak, CNSA | Happy National Bosses’ Day – For Bosses with Employees and Those Without

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

Notary Blog: “Did You Know That Notaries in South Carolina Could Marry Couples?”

With prior scheduling, most couples look to their Pastor or a local Minister to marry them. Many of the local Ministers and Pastors are also Notaries Public. They, with proper ordainment, already have the authority to marry these couples. Some couples choose to have a large formal ceremony. Some couples choose to have a small elopement before their larger ceremony. Some, just want the no-frills paperwork signing. If by chance you want the quick route to marriage, or if you just want to legalize the process before your ‘Big Shebang’ Ceremony later, a Notary Public might be your better option.

Is it Hump Day Yet

Happy Valentine’s Day from Me to You! ~ Sonita M. Leak

There are couples that are going through rough times, and for those, I say be strong, stay strong, fight for what you know is worth the fight. Lay down those things that are not worth the fight. Sometimes you have to give up things ‘you’ as a person hold dear as a sacrifice for what ‘is’ actually worth it.

Notary Blog: Spur-of-the-Moment Wedding at Starbucks I-85

Many couples call on us to perform the ‘bare-bones’ minimum ceremony, which can be as simple as saying, “I do,” then, ” I do.” It’s usually not that short and sweet, but you get our drift. Some couples want to get the paperwork and legal side of the marriage out of the way without the all frills and thrills ceremony. That is okay with us here at GreenvilleNotary.com.
