4 Ways To Find A Mentor For Your Mobile Notary Business

mentor-tips-resized.jpgUpdated 7-16-18. One of the most common questions asked by mobile Notaries starting their own businesses is how to find a mentor to guide them. Whether you meet face-to-face with someone or establish an online relationship, it’s easier than you may think to reach out and find a mentor. Here are four ways you can get started today.

“Link” In And “Connect”: Texas Notary Anna Giles and Virginia Notary Carolyn Wilson Ku used the NNA LinkedIn groups to find mentors. While Giles didn’t find a mentor in her small Texas town, she did find a Notary resource nearby who helped guide her on some steps to get started. Others have developed lasting, reciprocal relationships with local Notaries. Also, consider using the NNA’s Facebook Page. Visit the Community tab to reach out to friends and colleagues. Facebook is also the home of the Notary Public Mentor Group with over 1,800 members across the U.S.

Connect With Colleagues At Professional Conferences: Notary-regulating officials in some states (such as Alabama and Montana) periodically host conferences. The biggest regular gathering is the NNA’s Annual Conference. These are always great places to meet dedicated professionals in your field and create lasting business relationships. Also, consider joining the NNA Conference Attendees Networking Group on Facebook. This group is for Notaries who are interested in optimizing networking opportunities at our annual conference.

Check Out SCORE: Many Notaries need help with the business details of their profession. The nonprofit Service Corps of Retired Executives is a great place to go. SCORE has more than 340 chapters around the country and offers free mentorship programs for small business owners and entrepreneurs. It also hosts workshops and other events.

Join Professional Associations: Research associations like the NNA or those specific to your field to see if they offer mentor programs or other networking opportunities that could put you in touch with others in your field.

Wow the need for mentors is huge. I passed the Signing Agent exam last February and can not figure out how to get into the market. I have been picked up by a notary agency to perform remote I9 verifications, but there is no money in that -- although I do enjoy it. I would love a mentor, but don't see how everyone here is going to be able to get one. I'm in Woodbridge, VA (Northern Virginia).

Hi Wendy. Due to customer privacy requirements, a Signing Agent may not be able to have you shadow them on assignments. However, you can find information on some alternative options for Signing Agent mentoring at this link: https://www.nationalnotary.org/notary-bulletin/blog/2019/09/how-mentoring-strengthens-the-notary-community
