Let me start by saying that Carrie and I have had our differences in the past, however I will say that she is not only very knowledgeable but also a a power house in this industry. None of us would like our name dragged through the mud without all the facts.
Fact: Sign and Thrive, Notary 2 Pro and Laura Biewer I don't believe are necessarily Carries friends, or at least that is not why she discounts there recommended prospective members. It is because they train notaries to be NSA's and do a fantastic job of doing so.
Fact: I am not a member of Notary Reviews and probably never will be, as I am most likely back balled. However, if I could join I would. I was a member of the original Facebook page before the website was started. The information and tips you get from other notaries is amazing. To have a place where signing companies and title companies cannot see any of our comments, complaints or discussions insulates those that are members from repercussions.
Fact: No one should ever feel like they are being singled out, especially one of our own. We should always have each others back, we may disagree, but to try and drag each other through the mud is just ridiculous.
I have read these comments since this posting went up, I have sat and wondered should I take the time to post. I will now probably get dragged for posting but hey won't be the first.
Give Notary Reviews a chance. Could be the best money you spend. Could be the best resource information you get. You won't know until you try. That is what this business is, you try it, if you don't like it, don't renew.
But before you offer your opinion on a site, you should at least have some experience with either the site or the person who runs the site.
I am only offering my opinion on the information regarding Notary Review and not on any other part of the conversation.
