A word on Ethics...a Notary Signing Agent's Best Friend

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with A+ Mobile Notary / "A Quick Note"

LogoFlipped   Now, after having seen our world through the prism of a downward spiraling economy, and with major businesses having failed or having been reorganized and/or downsized, the challenge to maintain standards and to practice ethical behavior is compounded.  While our leaders debate the pros and cons of plans to rebuild and fortify our economy, average Americans react to job losses, higher tax burdens and they begin to emerge from their bunkers where they had gone to hunker down to ride out the storm.

     During times of challenge, it seems that others more desperate than ourselves are well poised to prey upon us and pull us toward bending both our own standards and in some cases the law.  Certainly, the allure of easy money, the lack of oversight and the temptation of weak human beings facing difficult choices contribute to unethical behavior and standards.  It is therefore important to remind yourself each day that such standards must be upheld, adhered to and modeled for others-as well as enforced upon those who might deviate.

     Our parents impressed upon us to do right.  But, they never minimized their admonitions with phrases like "when it suits you" or "unless you can cheat a little".  They believed in things like honor, personal responsibility and consequences.  They believed in such things because they had fought hard to create them in what they deeply believed was the greatest country on the face of the planet earth. 

     In my daily life as a Notary Signing Agent, I have seen how reminding yourself to do right and then going out and doing it has made all the difference.  First, you inspire the confidence of others who will trust you and your services.  That will lead to loyalty in your customer, then to client satisfaction and in turn, others recommending your products or services.  To me, that sounds like intelligent growth.  Such growth, along with a positive attitude and that steady positive reinforcement will result in success.  

     My wish for you is the fortitude and the confidence to do what is right each time you are presented with a dilemma of conscience.  Although we are faced with significant challenges, doing what is right and good is our best way forward.

Sadly, I have found notaries that steal content from another website and post it on their website, in violation of copyright laws.

I'm having trouble with your reply Jerry Lucas. Are you making an accusation of some kind? Or are you just making a general comment about how this happens too often?

Just a general comment.  I have found some notaries that don't respect the copyright laws.  I installed Copyscape on my website and that detects if my content was copied and posted on another website.  I have sent out copyright infringement notices to web hosting providers and they removed the website.

Maybe it's just that the Facebook generation has little understanding of such complexity. I have found my own content (business listings) that were spread to other lists, websites and listing websites where I never participated myself. While I found it surprising, because I concluded that it might generate calls for business, I didn't request removal. The one area where I would like to have complete control is my logo as the branding of my businesses is important...applying for a copyright would be the next process I suppose.
