Inflation / Recession

Any ideas to make money outside of loan signings or is anyone working on any projects outside of notary work in general to combat the current economy ? please reply or send private message. Cheers- Juan

Juan, I’m not an economic prophet, what I determined at the beginning of the Refi trip into space was it wouldn’t last forever. In 2020 I decided to start a second business handling personal, small and micro businesses, and Real Estate investor taxes.

I would encourage staying away from anything related to Real Estate such as Home Inspections. Find something that’s less sensitive to economic gyrations.

How about training for legal document prep if your state allows? Just a thought


In many states you have to be a Para-Legal to do legal document preparation. Not a bad choice as PL seem to have a steady demand for services.

It’s illegal in FL for paralegals to work independently - they must work under the direct supervision of an attorney. Doc preparers, on the other hand, can set up shop with no problem - they don’t give advice - they just complete forms according to requestors’ instructions and MUST have direct communication with them.


To be a Legal Document Assitant in California, you have to have the training to be a paralegal, (which makes you a paralegal).

You take your paralegal certificate (that you got from certain schools that meet the criteria) to the County Clerk and they will register you as a Legal Document Assitant. It costs some money and takes dedication to get a paralegal certificate and that will keep the average Joe or Jane from flooding the industry on a whim. That is a good thing.

There are people who work as Legal Document Assistants and also work as paralegals for attorneys on an independent contract basis.
