Key to Success: Wendy has several keys to her success. Most importantly, she "visits" her business plan on a monthly basis to gauge how her business is doing, and to make sure it's on track for yet another successful year. She is continually seeking to educate herself on Louisiana Statutes and motor vehicle policies. Wendy is neither afraid of hard work, nor the research involved in staying up to date on Louisiana laws and statutes. One of the ways she stays current is by teaching the Louisiana Notary Preparatory Course several times a week to students of Hilker Enterprizes, Inc., Loyola University New Orleans, McNeese State University, and Northshore Technical Community College. Wendy has made service to her customers and students a priority by making her services available at attractive times, and at competitive prices. She has even been known to meet customers and students after church on Sunday. However, during football season, she schedules her appointments either before the games start, during half time, or after the end of the games!
