Mark Wills is a professional notary public loan signing agent. It’s something he started doing as a side hustle that eventually turned into a full-time business.

That line from Aristotle may be one of the most overused quotes in history.

But it’s overused for good reason: it’s a good quote. At least the first part. Aristotle was onto something for sure: we are what we repeatedly do. I agree with that 100%.
