Mechanics Liens: Will zlien Sign My Lien Claim for Me?

Posted by Devin Anderson

5/15/18 11:00 AM

zlien is compliant with every state’s lien and notice requirements, and, in most cases, we are capable of notarizing your document (if necessary) and signing it on your behalf as an authorized agent.

When you order a document through zlien and agree to our Terms of Use, you agree that zlien is serving as your agent.  For the purposes of signing and filing your ordered document only, you appoint the company and its employees and agents as your agent and/or your company’s agent.

There are, however, a few states in which zlien cannot act as an authorized agent. In those states, the lien claim must be signed by the claimant themselves. In those states, zlien will send you paperwork to sign and notarize (if applicable), as well as all of the materials needed to send off to the associated government office for recording.

How to Thrive When Your Boss is Never Around

Posted by Charlotte McPherson

4/12/18 8:57 AM

Your boss is out in the field or in meetings all day, everyday. When you do see her, she’s on the phone or busy with no time to talk. Your emails go unanswered and you never know when you’ll see her next. Sound familiar?

Some may think that a boss who is never around is a good thing, but that’s not always the case. An absentee boss means that they’re too busy to answer your questions, provide direction, and give approval, which can put you in a hard spot. Do you proceed and risk doing the wrong thing or do you wait until they are available (days or weeks later) and risk missing a deadline or delaying a project?  Playing this guessing game is neither fun nor efficient. Plus is means that you’re performance is at risk.

Although you can’t control your boss’ schedule, there are some steps you can take to prevent finding yourself in this bind (or at least have it happen less frequently).
