2001 - 2020
Owner & Honest
Hawaii Notary Public
In the fall of 2001, after becoming aware of how unprepared I was to perform my duty as a Hawaii Notary Public because the Notary Office does not provide adequate training, I committed to educate myself and started "Signing Hawaii," adopting the tag line: Doing what is Right, not just what is convenient, and adding "Honest Notary" to my advertising.
Eighteen years ago, I added inked fingerprinting services in addition to Notarial Services time. However, my passion to see Hawaii Notaries receive the benefit of an education that actually trains them to perform their Notarial Services with integrity,diligence and skill has grown stronger with each passing year.
Few Notaries are aware of the liability/duty they have to all parties to the notarized transaction, if they break best practices or their state's Notary laws while notarizing, and cause financial damage to any or all parties to the transaction.
The year 2020 marks the launch of THE HONEST NOTARY Youtube Channel and Honest Hawaii Notaries as a service designed to train not only Hawaii Notaries concerning Hawaii Notary Law, but also Notaries nationwide in the basic principles of a Notarial practice done with integrity, diligence, and skill (66 C.J.S. Notaries Section 26.)
Notarization is for the protection of ALL parties to the transaction from fraud and financial loss. Poorly trained Notaries put the integrity of every notarized transaction they perform at risk, exposing all parties to the transaction (including the Notary and the Notary's Employer) financial loss resulting from poor practices or failure to identify potential fraud.
The Notarial Act is too important to permit compromise in integrity, diligence, and skill for the protection of all parties
in a notarized transaction.
I have recently stopped offering fingerprinting services to focus on developing the Youtube Channel THE HONEST NOTARY to provide Notary Education based on my education and experience as a Notary since 1997. .
