Summer’s the best time of the year to try new things and experience fantastic firsts. But some people miss out on truly amazing experiences because they let fear get in the way. Years ago, I was that guy. But a bout of FOMO got me out of my comfort zone, and it was honestly the best thing that's ever happened to me.
FOMO, for the uninitiated, is the Fear Of Missing Out. My buddies were doing a guys week in Las Vegas, and they had all kinds of daredevil activities planned. Bungee jumping, racing cars, a helicopter ride to the Grand Canyon, and ziplining in the mountains.
While the thought of plumeting to my death haunted my mind, the thought of missing out on an epic week that my friends would be talking about for years to come was too much for me, so I put on my big boy pants and went all in. And honestly, it was the most fun I've ever had, I'm really glad I went on the trip..
Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey, a blend of JD’s Tennessee Whiskey and honey liqueur (a little bit of honey, a whole lot of Jack), is a big believer in living life to the fullest, and as such they've launched the Jack Summer Swarm photo promotion!
