Indiana Notary Association
ROADBLOCK OR OPPORTUNITY?
Ever run into a roadblock with your notary business? Or life in general?
As noted by virtual mentor Michael Hyatt, "If we ask bad questions for the situation, we’re likely to get bad answers. But if we ask better questions—empowering questions—we might get better answers. I’m talking about answers that don’t just reinforce the idea that we’re stuck." Find out the questions suggested by Michael Hyatt to ask to reset your perspective.
From the Secretary of State's office. Did you know that . . .
- Unless you are an attorney in good standing, any advertising by a notary in Indiana must include the following phrase "I AM NOT AN ATTORNEY LICENSED TO PRACTICE LAW IN INDIANA, AND I MAY NOT GIVE LEGAL ADVICE OR ACCEPT FEES FOR LEGAL ADVICE."
- If notarizing documents related to real estate transactions, the notary must also hold a Title Producers License; real estate transactions must also be entered into the RREAL database.
- "A notary may not act until the notary has procured a seal that will stamp upon paper a distinct impression, in words or letters, sufficiently indicating the notary's official character to which may be added any other device as the notary may choose."
