In my go-go years, I was living a fast-paced lifestyle. Hence, enjoying all the luxuries and entrapments of a young, successful professional warrior/salesperson. I was a hard-driving smart guy for sure. But, in reality-“Right Place, Right Time.” The universe aligned. I was traveling and trekking the world. My adventures included: backpacking in Europe and cycling in Israel, Vermont, and California. Additionally, skiing in Utah/ Colorado/East Coast, and swimming/surfing the beaches in the Caribbean and Hawaii. But now, all seems to be in the rearview mirror.
Therefore, today I am traveling by auto and subway to notary closings. All of which are less exotic locations than my world trekking. The reality is that I have been learning more about myself. My daily trekking is leading me to adventures I could never imagine. Thus, the following blogs are various snippets/episodes. I am highlighting varied and colorful closings. It feels like I have been conducting closings for years.
Each closing takes on a life of its own. For “The Closer,” each ending is a real-life adventure with compelling life stories. I am listening and learning in every encounter. Hence, I am always showing respect and humility. There is never a lack of conversation and human-interest tales.
Hence, we discuss sports, politics, kids, and reinventing careers. All aspects of living are the norm. Everyone’s life, including my own, seems to come full circle. The theater and drama are breathing and living organisms one closing at a time. The lessons I am learning about the world and myself are priceless. The cleansing sessions cover happy and sad experiences for all parties.
Consequently, I am now trekking the notary world. Traveling not by plane or boat but by subway and bus; as a simple notary. Notary destinations have included: Michael Bloomberg’s office at the World Trade Center, Trump’s corporate office, and the offices of various Bank Presidents.
Furthermore, meeting with; Investment Bankers, Assistant Commissioners of the NBA, MLB, NFL, and multiple captains of industry. Moreover, doctors, construction workers, visiting barmaids, bus drivers, teachers, and accountants were in my bailiwick.
