Catch My Party is on Google+... Are you?

by Jillian Leslie on


I don't know about you, but I'm starting to like Google+. I have both a G+ Catch My Party page and a G+ personal page. They are similar to my business page and personal page on Facebook, and I share different content on each one.

I think Google+ is the new social network. It does help with SEO (getting found in Google searches), plus you won't miss people's updates (and they won't miss yours) like what happens on Facebook.

What I Do Every Morning to Stay Focused and Grounded

by Jillian Leslie on

I've been asked to write a post by Quaker Oatmeal about how I reward myself everyday and maintain a healthy, happy lifestyle. As a mom, staring my own company, my days are pretty hectic.  I feel like I'm always switching gears and changing hats.

But the one thing I do every morning, is take ten minutes and visualize. I visualize my day ahead, what I hope to accomplish, and how I'd like the outcomes to be. I also visualize my longer term goals for myself and my family. And if I'm worried about something, I try to reframe it so that I'm not in fear. I picture myself moving through whatever the situation is with grace and confidence and coming out the other side happy.
