If your employer purchased your notary commission, they can dictate that you notarize only for "business related documents", and they have the right to receive all income received from your notary commission. However, the notary still can serve all of the public whether customer or not, so long as the document is related to their business. The notary is still responsible for the safekeeping of their notary journal and seal ( if their state requires those ). You can ask your employer if they want to pay for you to become a notary public.

If you like to control your own destiny, becoming a notary on your own is a better idea. You will be more attractive to employers, because its very handy to have a notary on staff. Even if there is another notary on staff, that notary might be at lunch, out sick, on a business trip, or may have quit, gotten fired, or died when the company needs a notary. You really increase your chance of being hired and your value to employers if you are a notary.

Also, if you have your own business with a storefront, or office, you can get extra work from walkins who need a notary public. Notaries can charge up to $10 per notarized signature ( depending on what state you are in ). Many notaries can make $100 in twenty minutes using their notary commission.
