Notary Basics: Understanding Apostilles And Authentication Certificates When notarizing documents to be sent to foreign countries, you may be asked if you can provide something called an "apostille" for the document.  An apostille is a certificate — often attached to the document by an appropriate government official after it is notarized. While you are not responsible for obtaining an apostille, signers often ask about them, so it's helpful to understand what they are and how they work. Apostille Or Authentication Certificates? Apostilles and authentication certificates validate the seal and signature of a Notary on a document so that it can be accepted in a foreign country. Both verify that you held a Notary commission at the time you notarized the document.Apostilles are used when pu...

As a manager, you are probably making employee work schedules in some capacity. But if you simply list employee tasks by date and call it a day, your employee schedules are most likely sub-optimal. Why? Because they do not account for the following -  Staffing levels throughout the duration of the project Employee skill levels Local staffing rules, and more. Besides, in their current form, they do not track employee productivity or shifts, making payroll tracking a lot harder. This is why you need to schedule your employees instead of simply allocating them tasks. Even more so if you are switching to a hybrid mode of work. Here is why.4 Reasons You Need to Schedule Your Employees in a Hybrid WorkplaceTo Decide Which Employees Need to be on PremisesIn a hybrid work setup, some employees ...

Always can learn a lot from Debb Janes from her blogs on videos and this is one of them  YouTube Thursdays - March 10, 2022       Active Rain is a great resource if you're looking for sparks of creativity and inspiration.  And, video marketing inspiration is no exception! For others, like us, who have a rural niche, these Rainers are good ones to follow.  Kat Palmiotti. First of all, you can't help but be inspired by Kat's ability to quickly establish herself as a rural land expert after a move from Monroe, New York to Kalispell, Montana. She's such an outdoor enthusiast, it's a natural fit. We both appreciate her series of videos featuring area wildlife. This one, about about wild turkeys, comes to life with the perfect music.      Toby Barnett. Toby hails from Snohomish County, in nor...

Technology  can be our friend and at times it might be our foe.I have been having some technological challenges lately, my HP LaserJet printer stopped communicating with my Lenovo Yoga Pro Laptop about six weeks ago. I spent hours with tech support and my own tinkering. Well, the sad story is, my perfectly good  Wireless Laser Jet Color printer has stopped getting extra support to communicate with my Microsoft Windows 8 Laptop. They have  some fancy words for the technical term, something about the drivers; the bottom line is that the printer  is not connected to the network anymore.Now my Lenovo Laptop started  giving me notices, that Microsoft will not be supporting Windows 8 at the end of the year. On a side note, periodically my laptop just shuts off unexpectedly, hence I am obsessi...

Nothing else matters as a landlord if you can’t collect rent. So how you collect rent has a huge impact on your real estate investing business, from speed to security to ease of accounting. But that doesn’t mean there’s one perfect rent collection method that works for every landlord or property manager. So we asked real-life landlords and managers how they prefer collecting rent — and why.  1. Landlord/Smaller Property Management SoftwareAs the founder of an online property management software that lets landlords collect rent online for free, I had to appreciate this one: “Property management software makes automated rental collection possible.
