  • Additionally, there are MANY useful tips that you would only learn the hard way – by making mistakes. Things like: Don’t print your documents in advance, if the date changes, you’ll have to trash them and re-print with a current date; Make sure your signers know in advance the plan – what they need to have handy (ID, proof of insurance, proof of sale, a babysitter so you can have their undivided attention; etc.)  She’s an amazing instructor and I highly recommend her!
