Check out!It’s about 4:30 a.m. on Tuesday morning, and I’m recovering from a much-needed vacation. Right now, the jet lag is killing me.

Yes, I’m one of those people who usually need a “vacation from the vacation.” But it’s worth it!

A vacation gives you time to rest and relax, but it also provides the opportunity to try new things.

For example, on my recent trip, I was lucky enough to take a powered hang-gliding lesson and zip-line over some pretty deep ravines.

But the most exciting moment was unexpected. I was scuba diving through a small cave looking at the unique, underwater walls. Then, I saw some beady yellow eyes looking in my direction.

My guide flashed a light, and there was a five-foot shark resting on the floor….about five feet away from me!

And if that wasn’t enough, there was another shark circling the back of the cave and another one to my right.

Did the sharks attack?

What the heck does this have to do with PR?

Check back on Thursday for the rest of my story. But right now, I’m having a hard time staying awake. I’ve got to grab a Vitamin C drink and get to work!

If you have questions about your PR or online copywriting activities, feel free to write to me below or at I’m here to help!
