Now that my kids are grown, Halloween isn't as exciting a holiday as it used to be when they were little. I loved helping them get all dressed up and you could feel the excitement in the air in anticipation of all that yummy candy! One of my favorite costumes the kids did was dressing up as the band KISS. It was hysterical watching them go up to our neighbors doors singing, "I wanna rock and roll all night," instead of the usual, "trick or treat!" Ahhhh, the good old days! Since the one child we still have at home is too cool to trick or treat (insert eye roll here), this Halloween my husband and I will sit on our front lawn in soccer chairs with an ice chest and pass out beers to the exhausted looking parents trying to keep up with their kiddos. We also pass our candy, but I think our house is more well known as the grown up stop at this point!
On Tuesday's TNT call (if you're not registered for this free, weekly call you should be: https://www.notarycoach.com/tnt), Amy Seitz, owner of CyberizeIt gave an awesome tip for notaries who pass out candy on Halloween, and I wanted to share it with you today so you had time to put it into action for Monday's festivities. On the back of the candy you're passing out, put a sticker with your company logo and contact info! I'm going to do this with Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. On each individual package, I'll place a sticker that says, "Jen Neitzel, your favorite Coppell mobile Notary Public" with my phone number. I've already got Avery labels at home, so I'll just customize those to put on the back of the candy. I'm so excited to try this idea so everyone in my neighborhood knows there is a notary on the street for when they need one (and they will at some point)! Let me know if you like Amy's idea and how it went over in your neighborhood!
