Notaries Share Their New Year’s Resolutions For 2016

2016 New Year’s resolutions from Notaries across the U.S.

It’s January — a time to put aside the old, bring in the new, and prepare for the year ahead. What kind of resolutions are Notaries making for the New Year? We asked our readers to share their 2016 resolutions on Facebook and here’s what they said:

Khalid M. Rana of California, who’s served as a commissioned Notary for five years, said that his resolution for 2016 is to “continue to serve the public to the best of my ability.”

A common theme for resolutions is professional improvement, and that’s what Alli Choate of Arizona and Enna Bachelor of Michigan chose: Both resolved to go through new NNA certification programs this year to expand their skills as Notaries.

Other Notaries resolved to take their business to the next level in the New Year, such as Florida Notary Kim Brennan. Kim said on her Facebook page that 2015 was a great year of growth for her business, Notary Services by Kim, and that her resolution is to continue to expand her services and have an even better 2016!

Other Notaries chose to focus on personal improvement. Jeffery Northrup of New Mexico said he wants to work on coping with on-the-job frustrations, so he’s resolved “to try not to lose my temper when lenders screw up the paperwork resulting in delays and cancellations.” Laura Biewer of California plans to keep three things healthy in 2016 — her body, her mind and her business.

And then there’s Vicky Medlin of California, who decided to stick with something easy: “No more New Year’s Resolutions!” But on the plus side, she says she’s been able to keep that one for three years straight with no signs of wavering!

Do you have a resolution for your Notary business in 2016? Or a personal resolution for self-improvement? Share yours with our Notary community on Facebook.
