Disney World Trip Postponed- For You, Los Angeles!

I was scheduled to be at the Villas at the Wilderness Lodge at Walt Disney World in Florida, beginning tonight, and lasting until Thursday, October 1st. I decided to postpone my trip (until December, when I hope that I can get a room!), because money is tight right now. Besides, business is normally slow for me in December right after Christmas, so that would be a perfect time for me to get my Walt Disney World fix.

Yesterday I went to a preview of The Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco. That place was amazing! It was beautiful, it told a comprehensive story of Walt Disney's life without being too boring, and it told the history of this country just by telling about the life of this man! Congratulations to Diane Disney Miller and the Disney family for opening what I'm sure will become a top draw in the City of San Francisco!

Anyway, going to the Walt Disney Family Museum made me realize that I was getting my Disney fix right there and then, and that by postponing my trip to WDW would buy me some time to make some cash (which I'm trying very hard to do) and to do something that I've never done- be at WDW right around Christmas time (I have been there in November before, when there were Christmas decorations all over, but I want to go right when the Holiday excitement is still in the air (and when the park is really, really crowded). It'll be fun!

So I hope that you will use Hollywood Notary.Net for your Notary Public and California Apostille needs!

Desperate Notaries - Los Angeles

Sounds like a TV show, doesn't it? I'm just kidding with the title- sounded good, though. Right?

If you need a Notary Public who's cool, laid-back, but professional, experienced and really good, look no further than Hollywood Notary.Net, a professional Mobile Notary Service in Los Angeles, serving Hollywood and all of Los Angeles. While I'm really not desperate, I am fair in my Notary pricing, and I believe that Notaries should be paid fairly.

Let's say you need a plumber, so you find one online, and he comes over. That's what, $50 or $75 just for him to show up, and he hasn't done anything yet. You get a bill- it's for at least $100, maybe $175.

Well, people, let me tell you this: if I ever charge you for a total bill any more than $64, it means that you had me over doing some serious work, and lots of it!

My charge for a house-call is $45, which includes one signature notarized. Each additional signature is effectively $8 (see my pricing for calculation of rates).

My charge for a business-call is $48, which includes one signature notarized. Each additional signature is effectively $8 (up to a certain amount).

My charge for my Hollywood Special or my Starbucks special is $25, which includes one signature notarized while at my "secret spot" in Hollywood or at a Starbucks location. Each additional signature is effectively $8 (up to a certain amount of signatures).

So there you have it. The prices of being Notarized at Hollywood Notary.Net. Is that too expensive? If you think it is, then you probably wouldn't value my service or any service that professional people perform anyway. I really don't like cheap people- I hate 'em, in fact. Sometimes they have to learn the hard way that it's better to do it right upfront than do save a few bucks right now. There's a lot of Notaries who make small errors that you might not know about now, but you find out later when a document gets rejected for recording by the County Clerk's office (and there are many reasons this can happen).

Desperate Notary? No. Stupid Notary? No.

Moderate Business Today

A day in the life of a Hollywood Notary.

First, I went down to the Secretary of State's office downtown to get an Apostille for a client. When I got outside the building, there was a line outside, and the door was locked.

"What's going on?", I asked. "The power was off. It's back on, but they haven't let anyone in yet". Oh. That was the State of California building downtown on Spring Street in Los Angeles. After a 2-minute wait, I got into the building, put all my stuff through the x-ray machine, and went up to the office to take care of business.

Two hours later, I met 2 clients at my "secret spot" in Hollywood, where we had a nice chat while I notarized their documents. One of the people was a comedian that I had heard of before. He made fun of my Disney autograph book. I asked him if he was going to use it in his act. We'll see.

Afterwards, I went to my second Notary appointment nearby. It went pretty smoothly.

On the way home, I deposited some well-needed checks into the ATM.

I came home and prepared the Apostille shipment to my client here in California. It was a document for use in Mexico.

I stopped at the post office to ship a package. I went to Chef Marilyn's to get me some healthy soul food for late lunch.

I'm reading my email, updating my websites, and trying to make some more cash-ola.

Imitation Is Flattery?

They say that imitation is the highest form of flattery. If that is true, then I guess that I should feel really flattered that a local Mobile Notary Public here in Los Angeles not only "imitated" just one of the policies that I created, it seems that he also "lifted" several of my sound, self-created Notary policies, including my stated Waiting Fee and Hotel Parking Fee. He copied them word for word! Wow!

I've been copied before. A Mobile Notary from the Bay Area of California called me and told me that he thought that my Starbucks Special was genius, and that he was going to steal my idea. I didn't mind that, because he TOLD me he was doing it, and paid me a compliment, so that was way different. He didn't copy me word-for-word, either.

This other guy, on the other hand, is surprising. I bloody well can't sue him or anything, I suppose. Would that be ridiculous? It's just that my words have been lifted, word-for-word. Wow again. And get this- he has the nerve to put "copyright" at the end of his pages! Do I dare name the culprit? Nah...not today anyway. I just found this out not ten minutes ago, too.

Things Will Be Better- Help Yourself!

It's tough economic times, that's for sure. In Los Angeles things are really tough. They announced on TV today that Los Angeles city will lay off 900 workers. What is there to do? For me, I will continue to work hard and pull myself up despite the heavy loss in loan signing income. One way I will overcome this bad economy is to become more innovative in my Hollywood Notary.Net business. I'm already implementing several new things- we will see how they work!
