About us-Tragedy and Triumph
2020 was a year many of us would like to forget due to the pandemic. Yet for me, De'Ja Carlisle, the President of Family1st, it was a year of tragedy and triumph. March 25th, I lost my oldest child of 5, to asthma, just a few hours prior to his 29th birthday. As a grieving mother, I can attest that there is no greater pain than losing a child. Due to the pandemic, the resources for grief were limited or just non existent in a capacity that was very much needed. I left my job of many years because I could not function in a way that was beneficial for not only myself but also the public. In addition to that I had to be strong for my Family as well.
Fortunately, I had a wonderful support system but I needed more, to help me adapt to this new way of life without my Son. So I decided to do notary just as something to do here and there and make some extra money. Nothing could ever take the place of him but it helped me find other things to focus on instead of being a emotional wreck.
While doing Notarizations, going to different locations and meeting different people, I saw just how appreciated and needed my services were. I was even able to get my 10 year old Grandchild to help. That way she made her own money, and learned some financial responsibility. In 2021 all 3 of my daughters gave birth and I became a Grandmother of 8. My youngest son was now filling the shoes of his older brother and is known to the Grandbabies as Big Uncle.
In 2021 my oldest Son would have been 30 and I felt like I needed something to mark that year, in addition to my Sons' birthday. I needed to do something that was big for all of us, something that allowed me to continue to help the public and something to assist me with being able to spend more time with my Family.
So, I studied, took the course and became a Certified Signing Agent, I became Authorized to complete Remote Online Notarizations and decided to incorporate I-9 Verifications. This opened many doors for me to work with over 100 signing agencies, title companies, lawyers and many others. Also in 2021 Family1st became accredited by the Better Business Bureau and affiliated with the Cuyahoga Falls Chamber of Commerce. In 2022 the company became a Ohio Certified Minority/ Woman - Owned Enterprise.
A lot of our business has come from word of mouth, through repeat customers, family and friends. This confirms not only that the service that is being provided, is much needed, it also lets me know that the quality of our work is well above standards. This can be proven by the google reviews, in addition to us being compared to some of the corporate companies that offer notary work and have been in business for many years.
With that all being said, I just want to say that on behalf of every staff member at Family1st, we are Grateful for each and every referral, kind word and show of support!
Thank you for believing in us but most importantly, Trusting us with your important documents.
