I am at the beach for about 10 days. My "summer vacation". I am a great believer that you have to recharge your batteries-and spending time out at my beach house is how I do it- But as you can see- it is Sunday morning and I am on the computer! These days- even when I am on vacation- I am connected. I have a blackberry with me at the beach- my cell phone- so I am always accessable- and can reach my staff and important clients if I need to. Is that a vacation? I am more relexed because I am "connected" My wife even thinks it is a good idea- thoughts for the day.... Are you connected all the time? Can you get away from it all? Which is better- I don't know- Let me know your thoughts...

Welcome to my blog- the first one!

July 26 Well- thank you Steve Lillo my web site maven- I finally have a blog. I hope to update this on a weekly basis and hopefully get some nice discussions going. I have a newsletter that gooes out every other week ( sometimes every week) so please check in our newsletter section for past issues.
Also- If you haven't gotten your million dollar rolodex- please sign up for that.
I just came back from Mark Victor Hansen's Mega book marketing univserity in Orlando. Over 500 authors were there and I was amazing how many read our newsletter and listen to our teleseminars. We do them for FREE and we really want to help people- and help people write a proposal- get an agent- and get published.
It is very gratifying ( sp?) to hear that we are really helping people. After doing pr for about 30 years- the main thing I have learned is - it is not about the money- it is about changing lives. Forgive me for rambling- this is my first entry-so please add your comments and let me know what you would like to see here in future entires. Please check out my company site http://www.plannedtvarts.com My people are the best in the industry. I especially want to thank David Hahn who has been me for 20 years. It is nice when you have people like David (and Deb Kohan, Kristin Clifford, Sandy Trupp, Paul Schwartz, Brian Feinblum, Sharon Farnell- and many others) it makes my job easy- and they make me look good.
Ok that is it for now- future musings about pr, publishing and maybe we will even tall about George Bush a bit down the road! Have fun Rick
