EverythingLongBeach recently spoke with LaShon James-Major, Owner of The Document Diva, via email. They talked about inspirations, challenges and what’s been it’s like running a mobile notary business in Long Beach for the past 5 years.
Describe The Document Diva:
I offer mobile notary services in which I travel to businesses, residences, hospitals, convalescent homes, jails, courts, etc to notarize documents as a matter of convenience or of necessity for clients. I also provide an apostille service which processes documents for use out of the country.
Why did you start a mobile notary service?
I started my business because after a work injury I had no desire to go back to a regular 9 to 5. I wanted to have more control over my time and happiness. I first thought about becoming a notary years back but I never pursued it so when the opportunity presented itself again I took advantage of it.
What makes The Document Diva stand out?
What makes my business stand out starts with my business name, The Document Diva. I’ve found it to be very catchy and clients love it. After the name, it is the customer service and attention to detail. Often times you are dealing with sensitive documents that have to be notarized or apostilled correctly the first time, there is little room for error so if clients are pleased they are happy to use you again and refer you to others.
What is the biggest success The Document Diva has had?
The biggest success I had was getting a call from a worldwide skincare company, Dermalogica, to apostille their documents. It was quite nice.
What is your favorite part of running your business?
The favorite part of running my business is that no two days are the same. I never know where I’m going to go or who I’m going to meet so the variety is great.
What are the biggest challenges you face?
One of the biggest challenges I face is having to be constantly one step ahead of the competition. It seems there is a notary on every corner so you have to make sure you stand out.
Tell our readers one last thing: A notary is not just a notary, we are a vital link in the real estate and legal world to prevent fraud so it is important that any notary you use is experienced and familiar with notary law.
