2020 was quite a year for everyone, that is for sure. On behalf of our notary public class team, we want to give a BIG THANK YOU to our students & we wish you all a better and prosperous 2021.
One of the benefits of this year for many of our students is that it made so many individuals understand that alternate ways of extra income are now things of the future.
With termination and layoffs happening so frequently, it is best to have something set aside that you can use if needed, and the great thing about being a notary public is that it is a 4-year commission.
As a notary, you have four years to operate and make income for yourself even if currently employed as a notary. You still have a four-year term to use without a layoff. The handling of those who have to renew during the pandemic is they offered extensions. Meaning you have even more time to operate (the only person that can lay you off is YOU).
In 2020 our students learned from us how to become a notary in California. Our students took their online course, received their certification, passed their exam, conducted their live scan, and sent their application off to the secretary of state. (Assuming you did these things) which leads to the next post.
One thing we are interested in knowing. Have you became commissioned as a Notary just yet, or are you still waiting on the Secretary of State’s results? The Secretary of State is three months behind with processing applications. They have just begun to process exams taken on October 1, 2020, which might have caused you a delay. Don’t let this discourage you from setting your goals for 2021.
