Inside the Hustle

I’ve been texting a prospect notary client for over the course of 30 minutes. She found my ad on Craig’s list and needed someone to meet her at the Long Beach county (it’s actually the Century Regional Detention Facility) to have her wife sign a document to get their/her car out of impound.

Sure. $15 for the notarization. $40 for my travel fee, after all it’s outside of my service area. The last time I had to appear at jail for a client, we just had one of their officer people get the guy. Uh-uh. Not for this facility. They want you to create an account, make an appointment online a week in advance. I mean, damn!

So, I’m just waiting to see what the client says. Some of the challenges I face, as I continue to learn all about the reasons why someone needs a notary.
