Anxiety and Work: The Impact of Anxiety on Different Generations of Employees
by Charlie Fletcher

The reality is, we are an anxious and stressed-out society. However, anxiety is far more than just uncomfortable — it can be debilitating. Over 40 million Americans suffer from some kind of anxiety disorder, making anxiety disorders the most common form of mental illness in the US. And we’re feeling the impacts. It’s estimated that anxiety-related physical and mental health challenges result in more than $42 billion in healthcare costs each year. But the impacts go far beyond these expenditures. In the workplace, anxiety is also strongly linked to lost productivity, decreased performance, and increased absenteeism and attrition. A mounting body of research suggests that some demographic groups are at greater risk both of developing anxiety disorders and of suffering significant effects from them. Click HERE to learn more.

Humility: A Leadership Superpower
by Sabrina Horn

Being humble may not seem like an obvious CEO trait. It is true that you’d be hard-pressed to find a leader who lacked self-esteem or had a sense of unworthiness. In the real world, the CEO does not have all the answers, but does have all the questions and the confidence to ask them. The best leaders have a realistic appreciation of their strengths and weaknesses. They are secure in knowing that they don’t know everything, and they have no problem asking for help, learning from others and even apologizing for their mistakes. So what does humility look like in leadership? Click HERE to learn more.

Inquiring Minds: Can a Notary Certify a Mortgage Note in Virginia?
from National Notary Association

The Answer: No, a Notary may not certify a Note. There are two reasons why. First, the statement in the Note describes an act that is not authorized under the laws of Virginia. Second, the act on the Virginia Note requires the exercise of legal qualifications and skill that a non-attorney Notary does not possess, and thus would engage in the unauthorized practice of law.

in 2021
by Karen Epper Hoffman

Technology glitches, overwhelmed staff and systems, contradictory dictates, and an over-arching pressure to make things happen fast all contributed to a rushed, somewhat confusing environment with the first round of PPP.
