Sometimes working as a process server requires creativity more than anything else. What happens when you go to serve your legal documents and the person is MIA? Maybe you track them down to their work or their friend’s house and they try to book it? What is your initial reaction to a client that is not the normal “here take these documents, goodbye”? Tinsley Ariana Taylor Keefe knows as a process server in Oklahoma City that the job requires a large quantity of creativity on a daily basis. If you are not expecting certain situations out of the norm, then this job is not meant for you. On the other hand, if you are a creative individual, there might not be another job better-suited for your skills.
The first tip in Tinsley Keefe’s guide on getting creative as a process server is thinking outside of the box. Having used her creativity in the weirdest ways as a process server in Oklahoma, Tinsley is not only aware of the need to be creative . . . but she is more than comfortable with it. There are times when the people that need to be served the documents will be just as creative, and then your skill will really be tested. A miniscule example of this is if you go to serve legal documents to someone and they are not home. You do a little investigating and it turns out they are at work. You now have a decision to make. Do you wait for them to get home, or do you get creative and think outside of the box?
Dr. Tinsley Ariana Taylor Keefe knows from her personal experience as a process server in OKC that the second option is always the answer. You march down to that person’s work. You don a similar outfit to their standard uniform, and if there is no uniform you make your way through the business like you belong there. No one will question you if you follow one of those two rules, and if they do . . . well hopefully you are a good runner. Tinsley’s second tip in the guide on getting creative as a process server is studying the individual on a personal scale. If you get familiar with the person that is getting served the papers, you will have an easier time getting them the papers.
Dr. Tinsley Keefe thinks back to one of her experiences as a process server in Oklahoma and cannot help but chuckle. The person was stubborn – they refused to be around when Tinsley was around. From her research, she found out that the person had a soft spot for horses. She put up an ad for a horse at a ridiculously low price, and sure enough the person found it and replied. Long story short; the person showed up at Tinsley’s doorstep and was finally served their papers. If you always keep your creativity close by, you will never fail as a process server.
Being able to blend in is a huge component of being a private investigator. If you are not good at being either a master of disguise or a chameleon, then you will find nothing but struggle in the world of private-eyes. Starting out as a private investigator in Oklahoma City, Dr. Tinsley Ariana Taylor Keefe learned the tricks of blending fairly quickly. She is a natural, and now she is here to help you realize your blending abilities too. The first trick to blending in as a private investigator is the clothing you wear. Of course, if you do not have to blend there is no reason to not dress as glamorous as you can financially afford. However, if you are out trying to dig up dirt on someone . . . showing up in a blue summer dress is not exactly blending.
Pulling from her experience at blending in as a private detective in Oklahoma, Dr. Tinsley Keefe makes note of the colors that blend the best: blacks and grays. White does not blend well unless you are trailing someone through the snowy mountains. Other vibrant colors or even neutral colors still have the chance at being noticed. While blacks and grays can still be noticed depending on the design of the clothing, they are still the least likely to be seen. This leads to the next tip; do not wear something in black or gray that is intricate in detail or style. Try to dress as plainly as possible. If you own plain black or gray pants and shirts, take them out of the closet and brush off the dust that has gathered. If you do not own any, then get your wallet out and hit the mall.
As a side note, Tinsley Ariana Taylor Keefe knows from working as a private detective in OKC that hats can also be worn to hide bright hair colors such as blondes and reds. The next step on blending in as a private investigator is being quiet while you snoop. If you wear high heels that click every time you take a step, chances are you will be noticed. If you wear crocs that squeak every time you hit a hard surface, then you will be noticed. You need to find the softest pair of shoes that you can – and if you are driving, you need to find the most inconspicuous car that you can find. Being a private investigator is all about blending in with the peaceful quietness of your surroundings.
Learning these tips while working as a private investigator in Oklahoma, Tinsley Keefe knows that if you follow them you will succeed at blending in. Even if you are just starting out and your blending abilities are at an all-time-low, you might benefit from these tips enough that your blending level will be boosted by five. After a little practice, you will be the epitome of invisibility in the world of private detectives.
Time is something that matters in life overall, but there are a handful of jobs that require time management more than anything else. Notary Publics are one of those jobs. Looking back on her time as a notary public in Oklahoma City, Dr. Tinsley Ariana Taylor Keefe explains that time is something you are always worrying about. As a notary public, you have to manage both your set and random appointments, unrelated job activities, and still try to get a good night’s sleep. It grows even more complicated if you are in school, working another job, or taking care of a family. You do not have to worry too much if you are a notary public struggling with time management however; as Tinsley Ariana Taylor Keefe offers the key secret to success as a notary public: a cell phone.
Dr. Tinsley Keefe pulls from her experience as a notary public in Oklahoma when she explains how time management correlates with the importance of having a cell phone. Having experienced days where her cell phone lay forgotten, Tinsley truly began to appreciate mobile technology. By keeping your cell phone on you all day long, you will always know the time for starters. One of the biggest problems you can run into as a notary public is missing appointments related and unrelated to your job because you do not have access to a clock. It can grow tiresome trying to find a place to run into every half hour just to check the time – for both you and the owners of the businesses you scatter through. Of course, having the time handy 24/7 is not the only benefit of using a cell phone as a notary public.
Organization is just as important as time management, if only because it directly connects to it. If you are unorganized, you are more likely to miss appointments, forget documents, or lose track of time completely. Tinsley Ariana Taylor Keefe has been using her cell phone to keep her organized as a notary public in OKC for many years now. Most cell phones have the ability to mark appointments on a calendar, set reminders, make notes, and have access to apps that can do much more. For example, you could keep your entire document library accessible from your cell phone by using an app (provided you secured it with a password and probably even encryption). Start carrying a wireless printer and a 24-pack of pens on you at all times and you will never fail.
The next biggest thing that a cell phone is useful for is the entire point of a cell phone: phone calls. Tinsley Keefe has learned from the times she has forgotten her cell phone as a notary public in Oklahoma that forgetting your phone means your clients have no way to reach you. Take this notary public’s professional advice and utilize your cell phone for all it is worth!
There have been some terrible movies made about skiptracing – and also some good ones. There have been even more movies made with similar plots related to skiptracing. Dr. Tinsley Ariana Taylor Keefe pulls from her experience as a skiptracer in Oklahoma City, and instantly quenches all of the theories that have stemmed from those movies. Skiptracing does not take you on a fun adventure across the country, and it does not make you as badass as you think it does. The boring truth behind skiptracing is that most of the time, it is actually pretty easy. Sure you will get those adventures every once in a while, but most of the time it is tracking down a person and calling them. Sometimes you even get to show up at their house and knock on their door. Have a conversation.
When people are confronted with skiptracers, their last instinct is to run. They know why you are there. They know what you want. They might even have a million excuses, but they will not have that adventure you desperately want. Skiptracing does not make you rich either. While it has the very rare potential to make you a butt-load of cash, chances are it will make you a decent amount that will keep you warm and full. If you want to become a skiptracer, do so because the actual idea of tracking people down is intriguing. Dr. Tinsley Keefe knows from her time as a skiptracer in Oklahoma that you will track a lot of people simply by sitting at your desk and browsing the internet. For some people, that is all they want in life. Maybe you have an eerie ability to find someone’s location really quickly and that is why you want to become a skiptracer. That is fine. You will excel.
Do not become a skiptracer because you saw something in the media that portrayed skiptracing as a dangerous profession with a lot of action, mystery, and climax. You will be very disappointed. Tinsley Ariana Taylor Keefe points out as a skiptracer in OKC that not all the rumors about skiptracers are good rumors. Some of them are misleading in the sense that a skiptracer is intimidating and mean. The people who do this job are just as human as you are, and they are doing their job just like everyone else. If you are on the other end of a skiptracer’s research, then chances are you deserve to be there. Be honest and upfront. Get it over with.
In the end, if you want to be a skiptracer because of what you have seen in movies then you are barking up the wrong tree. If you are afraid of skiptracers because of the stigma behind them, then you are misinformed. The best way to find more information on skiptracing is to do your own research and ask questions. Tinsley Keefe wants to remind that misconceptions can be avoided.
It is no secret that notary publics constantly keep pens on them to avoid a pen-less situation. Sudden meetings can pop up in the weirdest places. Tinsley Ariana Taylor Keefe, a notary public in Oklahoma City, can remember several meetings that took place in parking-lots, restaurants, and even the side of the road. The strange possibilities are endless. The easiest way for notary publics to be prepared is to constantly have a pen on them. Because of that, most of those pens end up in some pretty weird places.
Tinsley Keefe recalls many times as a notary public in Oklahoma when her pens would wind up in her hair. Whether it is to keep a bun in place or to just keep several “on hand”, notary publics with long hair will constantly have anywhere from one to five pens in their hair. Sometimes they can fit more, but that really depends on how far that notary public is willing to take it.
In times of chaos, pens can be whipped out and thrown around without anyone realizing where they end up. Dr. Tinsley Ariana Taylor Keefe has witnessed several occurrences as a notary public in OKC where her pens will wind up frozen to the roof of her vehicle. In the sporadic moment of a random meeting, pens can be placed anywhere and then forgotten about.
Believe it or not, but a great way that notary publics keep track of pens is by making them into necklaces. Dr. Tinsley Keefe has witnessed numerous notary publics in Oklahoma City wearing necklaces filled to the brim with seven or eight pens. Not only is this a creative way to always have a pen on you, but it is a fashion statement with the possibility of taking over the world.
Another sweep in the pen-fashion industry is belts comprised of pens or pen accessories. Tinsley Keefe has shared many ideas with other notaries during her time as a notary public in OKC, and one of the most memorable suggestions was a pen-belt. The user would simply get a firm but small “string” belt, and use the pen caps to decorate the belt completely. There is no way someone could run out of pens with a pen-belt.
Regardless of where the pens end up, they are as necessary as they are annoying. Notary publics have to constantly keep pens on them, which means they lose pens more than they do not lose pens. Tinsley Ariana Taylor Keefe has realized as a notary public in Oklahoma that the easiest way to survive the pen struggle is to keep them in a pencil box or a bag with a zipper. By constantly keeping them contained and replenished, the only thing you have to worry about is losing that bag. So obviously, keep the contained pens in a spot where you will always remember them.
Avoiding skiptracers is actually fairly easy if you take the right precautions. Believe it or not but skiptracing is not always your fault. There are many occurrences where someone else will have access to your credentials, take loans or credit lines out in your name, and then run them dry without ever paying them back. Of course, there are also times where you are so far in debt that you stop paying it back. Dr. Tinsley Ariana Taylor Keefe shares from her experience as a skiptracer in Oklahoma City ways to prevent your name from ending up in a skiptracer’s care. First and foremost – and this should be followed all the time in general – keep all information related to money safe and secure. Do not leave passwords or account numbers lying around. Do not put your pin number on the back of your debit card.
By keeping your money safe and secure, you reduce the chances of someone else obtaining your financial information. That rules out one dangerous way of ending up on the other side of a skiptracer’s investigation. The second key to avoiding skiptracers is to keep track of your payments and how much debt you are in. Dr. Tinsley Keefe knows from her time as a skiptracer in Oklahoma that this is the most important thing when it comes to steering clear of skiptracers. Sometimes it is easy to forget how much debt you are in – student loans, credit cards, mortgages and credit accounts. You can open up credit accounts at basically any well-known retailer and even some lesser known ones. This is convenient at the time, but in the end it can be more troublesome than anything else.
Debt is easy to forget about, but accounts that are impossible to keep track of are even harder to remember. When you forget about your debt, you end up in the pocket of a skiptracer. Dr. Tinsley Keefe knows a few things from her time as skiptracer in OKC, and she recommends keeping track of your loans and payments in a document (that is backed up). By keeping track in a document ALL of your payments including credit accounts and student loans, it is impossible to forget about them. Just remember that after you write them down, ignoring them will not help you either. The best thing to do is keep track. Never forget that and you will be fine.
If you keep in mind those tips throughout life, you will most likely never end up dealing with a skiptracer. Just remember that if by chance you do, if you treat them with respect, you will have a much better time. Skiptracers are only doing their jobs, and if you are guilty of ignoring your debt, then it is their job to track you down and get you to pay that money. The alternative is a much more terrible place . . . so keep track of your debt in the first place and you will be golden.
Being a notary public might not seem like that much of a challenge to relationships, but when you are called at random times to meet with clients, it starts to take its toll. Maybe you are in the middle of spending the night with your significant other when you get that dreaded phone call – you cannot say no, can you? Of course not! It is your job, after all. So you meet your client, you get the job done, and you go back home. Your significant other is angry with you. What then? Tinsley Ariana Taylor Keefe has seen too many relationships fail as a notary public in Oklahoma City, and the stories only keep replenishing. You might even think you are doomed to live the rest of your life alone.
You are wrong. Relationships are possible, and so is happiness. There is a trick to being in a relationship and being a notary public: manage your time. Notary Publics do not have to show up the second they get a phone call, nor do they have to turn the client away. The easiest solution is to postpone the meeting and finish whatever event or activity you are in the middle of. Your significant other will appreciate your effort, but also respect that you care about your job. Tinsley Keefe has seen just as many good relationships as bad with other notaries as a notary public in Oklahoma. This inspires her to spread the message: do not lose hope.
It is not just the romantic relationships that suffer when you are a notary public. Sometimes your relationship with your family, friends, or even your kids can be a struggle when you are trying to juggle both your life and your job. Dr. Tinsley Ariana Taylor Keefe has learned a few tricks when it comes to being a notary public in OKC with friends and family to still spend time with. If the meetings are supposed to be quick then take your kids with you. If you have a family event scheduled, then go to it. Your client will set an appointment that better fits both of your schedules. The biggest thing is remembering to show them that you want their business – you want to help them. If they remember that you are good at what you do, then they will be willing to wait.
Being a notary public is a fun job. It can also be annoying, infuriating, and boring . . . like every other job that exists. If you like what you do, there is no reason to stop doing it. Even if you struggle with managing your time in the beginning, it will not be like that forever. If they truly love you, your friends and family will understand why you are struggling to see them and they will also know that it is not permanent. It is just like Tinsley Ariana Taylor Keefe says: do not lose hope.
Finding the right wardrobe as a notary public is difficult. Do you go for casual – classy? What about stylish? Are you allowed to be stylish? Dr. Tinsley Ariana Taylor Keefe wants to remind you that in her experience as a notary public in Oklahoma City, your wardrobe is the least of your problems. When you are meeting up with clients, the last thing they focus on is what you are wearing unless it is the most unusual thing they have ever seen. Here is a key tip: do not wear something unusual. Whether you are striving for a particular style or you just want to throw some clothes on, there are a few things you should consider.
The first thing is how you present yourself. Regardless of whether or not someone notices your clothing, they will notice the way you present yourself. If you smell bad and your clothes are baggy and unflattering, chances are your aura is not going to be very welcoming. Most people will feel uncomfortable to even approach someone that seems to be dressed in garbage, let alone do work with them as a notary public. Tinsley Keefe has seen numerous mangy notary publics during her time as one in Oklahoma, and because of that she is constantly giving wardrobe tips to other notary publics and receiving them in return.
The second thing to remember is that you are doing a job, not going to a night out in the city with your friends. There is no one to attract. Do not put on your sexiest black dress or tux – just dress normally. Dr. Tinsley Keefe pulls from her experience seeing over-dressed notary publics in OKC and advises against the dinner-club style. The best way to find a suitable wardrobe as a notary public is to throw on a pair of nice jeans or “work pants”, a nice blouse, and call it good. If you spend too much time freaking out on what to wear, you will miss the entire point of being a notary public in the first place.
The last thing that Tinsley Ariana Taylor Keefe shares from her time as a notary public in Oklahoma is the warning: do not dress lazy. Dressing lazy is easy to do sometimes, especially when you get so caught up in a routine and then you get comfortable in it. You start to care less about how you look and more about getting the job done . . . which is good. On the other hand, what is not good is showing up to stamp documents in your pajama pants and a camisole. No one wants to feel like they are meeting up for a slumber party when they are trying to do something legally binding with the government.
If you follow Tinsley Keefe’s advice on wardrobe choices as a notary public, you are sure to struggle a lot less in the future. Just use your common sense and you will be fine.
If we have learned anything over the last several years, it is that the internet is a dangerous place. Hackers can find their way into anything, and data once thought to be private can be publicly shared without your permission. The scary thing is . . . you do not have to be a hacker to obtain someone’s personal information. Dr. Tinsley Ariana Taylor Keefe shares from her experience as a skiptracer in Oklahoma City and says: the internet is a skiptracer’s best tool. Why? You can find literally anything on the internet. If you have access to the right website, you can find someone’s phone number, current and previous addresses, email, and social media profiles with the click of a button. For a skiptracer, having this information could make or break a case. This is why it is so important to have access to the internet.
The first thing a skiptracer will want to do is get familiar with the internet. Do research – find those sites that have ample information, practice tracking people and even look up your own personal information to make sure the site is legit. Dr. Tinsley Keefe pulls from her knowledge gained as a skiptracer in Oklahoma and stresses the importance of never paying for information. Too many websites will claim to have “full reports” available with the purchase of a premium membership, when truthfully you can find that paid information for free on another website. The biggest thing to remember when doing this research is to save the legit websites you find! It can be a real pain in the ass to travel back through your research to find a website you used successfully. Not only bookmark, but back up your bookmarks!
Too many times a computer crash will take place and you will lose all of your saved data and information. By backing up your bookmarks with an email or Google account, you completely destroy the possibility of losing your things. After you have done enough research to have several useful tools saved and you have tested your tracking abilities with people you know, it is time to take the next step and actually track someone. Tinsley Keefe claims from her past as a skiptracer in OKC that skiptracers are often tracking people that are late on payments or in a whirlpool of debt. You will have their first and last name, age, and any legal information that is accessible. That is all you will need. Plug their name into one of your saved search engines, and chances are you will have their phone number and addresses in less than a minute.
Technology is taking over the world. The internet is something more valuable than library books in today’s day and age. If you do not learn to utilize the internet, then it will become your enemy. You do not want the internet as your enemy, especially when it can help you more than harm you.
