Today we’d like to introduce you to Robyn Carlson.
Hi Robyn, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
In 1981 I was hired by Union Home Loans as an investment secretary assisting with the sales of Deeds of Trusts generated by the lending division. We were required to have a CA Real Estate License and a CA Notary Public Commission for which the company paid for classes and tests. In 1982 I obtained employment with Mission Hills Mortgage as a loan processor. I was asked to notarize loan documents only occasionally as needed. I renewed my license and commission as required every four years. In 1998 my daughter was born and I became a self-employed contract processor, eventually working out of my home. In 2006 the real estate market was in chaos and in 2010, I decided to stop loan processing and opened Carlson Mobile Notary, which is prospering TODAY!
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
As a loan processor, I was considered “back office” which is not sales. I worked in an office; conversations with clients were over the telephone or emails, face-to-face conversations were not the normal requirement. I did not have training in sales or marketing. I was introduced to Business Networking International (BNI). I attended a couple of times and decided I would try it for one year. I paid weekly breakfast dues of $15.00, monthly required classes (membership, referral, visitor) $20.00 per class and annual dues of $385.00. Wow! That seemed a lot for my notary business. However, I committed. If you truly want to build your business BNI is a great vehicle. BNI educated me in the inner workings of sales, referrals, elevator speeches and membership sources. This education was priceless. After one year, I was ready to move and immediately found another weekly group where I am a member still today. Once I identified my fear of lack of sales training, I was provided an opportunity that gave me an education that led to my self-confidence. Priceless.
