"make that fee $100 and we will consider it! They get paid and we should too"

If you have to ask them to raise your fee to $100, IMO you're sorely undervaluing yourself and the services you bring to the table - not to mention the hit on your bottom line (a/k/a profit).

TS dropped their signing fees to $65 several years ago and many drank the Kool Aid. For some reason, notaries think the companies dictate what is charged by the notary and not the notary him/herself. And this mindset is why we can't get decent fees any more....

Try this - next time you call a plumber, tell him you need him out to fix <whatever> - and you want him to invest 3-4 hours on the plumbing in your house - but you're only going to pay him $50, $60, $65, $75 - let me know how that works out for you. I can guarantee, that plumber is going to laugh himself silly and hang up on you so fast it will make your head spin.

This is YOUR business. Do NOT let any company dictate your bottom line. And don't agree to compromise YOUR bottom line to help theirs.

$100 is not enough.

If you don't value your time and experience, nobody else will.
