Several months ago, I heard from At Your Service Agent, LLC owner Surond Maeweathers that she had booked Bill Soroka to speak at her monthly loan signing agent training class for February 2023. Surond also mentioned that she had booked the Queen of Apostilles, Judi Lawrence with Lawrence Institute of Notaries to speak virtually at her January 2023 training class. This sparked an idea in my head! What if Surond could get Bill and Judi to come at the same time? What if she could also get Laura Biewer to join? This would create an incredible line up of speakers for her class, but Surond being an out-of-the-box thinker took it to the next level. She created a one-day summit in Frisco, TX on April 15th called EVOLVE.
Isn't that what we're all doing right now....evolving? I love the name of this conference because it reflects what is happening in our industry. Yes, loan signings are down due to higher interest rates, but business is plentiful for a notary public. My phone is ringing off the hook lately for general/specialty notary services (special thanks to Jim Allen for all the great tips on optimizing my Google Business Profile). And I hear that from notaries all over the country as we are evolving from focusing only on loan signings to creating many different streams of income so we can thrive in business.
Bill, Laura and Judi loved the idea of coming to Texas to meet notaries and deliver some of their incredible knowledge to help others. In fact, we've been working on creating a day of learning that includes practical business skills to build relationships with your ideal customers, creating a money mindset and discovering the ways you can lean into the many other options for notaries to build wealth.
I hear a lot of people saying they'd love to attend a notary conference, but they can be cost prohibitive. Not this time, my friends. Surond's made the EVOLVE summit very affordable as your day includes breakfast and lunch. And plan on hanging out with everyone after the summit for an on-your-own happy hour.
Here's the catch: Space is extremely limited. Special rates at the hotel have been contracted if you're coming in from out of town. Frisco (where the EVOLVE summit is being held) is a suburb of Dallas.
Here's the cool part: Tickets are only $150 per person. If you're a Notary Business Builder who attends the EVOLVE summit, you will be included in a brunch the following day (April 16th at 11:30am) hosted by Bill Soroka! Brunch is complimentary to NBB members, and is our way of saying THANK YOU for attending the summit and for being a part of Notary Business Builder. You know we love the chance to mix, mingle and bond with the NBB family.
Just click the word EVOLVE anywhere in this article to register, but do it quick because space is limited!
I hope to see you in person in April!
