Hello! My name is John M. Holder. No, I'm not that John Holder!
I'm a husband to Kayla, father to Tatum, Sammy, Reyner and Adalee and a third-generation attorney with over 25 years of experience. I originally launched KentuckyNotary.net in order to showcase the services that I offer northeastern Kentucky as a mobile notary, loan signing agent and (eventually!) remote online notary.
But after finally discovering the network model, I pivoted my website and vanity number and chose to use them to promote a network instead. By forming the Kentucky Notary Network, we are now able to offer our loan closing services to companies (and individuals) throughout the entire state.
When I first signed up for a notary commission (way back) in 1993, I was fresh out of law school and did so because my father recommended it. Never did I imagine that an oath to the state (no duels fought here 😉), an 8 ½ x 11″ certificate and a small notary stamp would allow me to meet so many incredible people throughout our state. Not to mention that I've been to so many different places and beautiful homes.
It may be a side hustle to some, but I enjoy giving my clients professional and courteous assistance when it comes to their notarial needs. I like to thank the veterans for their service and relish talking to the elderly couples about their grandchildren and pets. Mobile notary work gets me out of the office where I continually witness the natural beauty our commonwealth offers.
Finally, I'm starting my blog about all things notary, Notarizzle, (yeah, great name, I know lol!) in order to keep pace with the advances in remote online notarization (RON). It's an exciting time to be a notary as twenty-two (22) states have passed laws that make webcam notarizations a reality. Kentucky's version of the RON law takes effect on January 1, 2020. If that sounds intriguing to you, stick around – we'll have fun seeing where this path takes us.
