Whatever your goals are, my advice is to pick one thing and achieve that. You cannot do 10 things really well at once. But YOU CAN do one thing really well if you focus on that for life-improvement. Once you’ve mastered the first goal, tackle something else. Keep it simple.
There is room for improvement throughout the year. Here are some Jersey City spots that will empower you to achieve in 2018.
In a new venture of bringing people, places and events to life in Jersey City, I’m introducing Spotted, a chapter of Jersey City Gal that is by the people and for the people – capturing the essence of our large and diverse city.
Jersey City is definitely on the map right now, with droves of people moving here and those on the outside curious about what’s up. Who are we? How do we define ourselves? Everyone is trying to keep up with Jersey City. What is your Jersey City?
I want to bring our entire city together through your experiences. I’ll be aggregating all citizen-generated content to create a greater collage of this great city, all in one place. With miles to cover every moment, every day, this will be one collective spot of experiences that we can all share and learn from.

Eager to showcase developing designs and businesses, participants and attendees include a variety of educated, influential, and fashion forward individuals who occupy Jersey City and its neighboring towns.
