Mobile Notary Business Information
Being ProfessionalHere is another area where you can rise to the top. It isn't necessarily expected that someone who comes to your house to do a quick notarization look like a professional business person. However, if you did, you would leave a good and lasting impression, and it could only pay off in future business and referrals. Maybe your new client, who shows up at the door in shorts and flip flops, is sizing you up for potential business at his office.
On the other hand, they'll probably think you're nuts if you dressed up on a hot summer Saturday while they're in the middle of a family barbeque, but just happen to need something notarized.
This is your business and you can dress and act how you want. It probably goes without saying that, as a bare minimum your clients will expect you to be clean and well-groomed. My feeling is that part of the benefit of having your own business and working from home is to dress and conduct business the way that's comfortable to you. Most people are intelligent enough to know when it's appropriate, or desirable to dress up.
Use your common sense, but don't overlook the opportunity to impress if you know it will pay off later.
