This is worth sharing, especially if you are running hangouts and events. Thank you +Ronnie Bincer for sharing and +CircleCount for the info.
Google+ Events on CircleCount

Today we are launching a new search and analysis tool for Google+ Events.

On the main page (linked above) you will find current Google+ Events. You will be able 
► to check for more events on other days with a date selector
► to search for events by keywords
► add new events that are not yet in our index

Every event is linked on this page to an analysis page where you can find more information about this event, like
► the most plusoned comments on the event
► the persons/pages with the most followers having commented on this event
► all commenters of this event
► all guests of this event who are going/went to the event

What could be a better example than an event with +Mark Traphagen, +Ronnie Bincer, +Jeff Sieh, +Wade Harman, +Eric Enge, +martin shervington, +David Amerland (ordered by their Google-ID ;) )?
Check out this event by +Plus Your Business! at:

What's the first event you will add on this page?

It has been so good to have some early evening walks in the sunshine for a change. You never know spring may actually be here!!
The dogs have been loving it.
The sun makes all the difference.

Thank you +Donna Beckett for sharing this.

Having had the experience of this I know how important it is and yet I haven't really sorted it out for myself. Have you?
Making plans for what happens to our online presence after we pass away could save our loved ones unnecessary pain and distress, say probate experts.

I'm hoping I can make this, how about you?
Thank you +martin shervington for the invitation.
I will be joined by Copyblogger's founder +Brian Clark for a 45 mins interview on the subject of 'Authority'.
Brian has influenced a lot of decisions relating to Plus Your Business, including the shape of the website, and the business model that is emerging too, so I am especially excited. (Thanks +Eric Enge for connecting us.)

Brian and the Copyblogger site are an authority on many things when you look at Google Search results, including 'Content Marketing', so this will be perfect for all you higher level Academy members out there too.

We will have a short window for questions so let me know beforehand and I'll do my best to ask. 
See you then!

Fido Thoughts for   #fidofriday   - Late I know
 I was pondering a conversation about the law of attraction and also the question asked the other day about the significance of dogs in our lives.
For me dogs are an emotional barometer. They feel how I'm feeling and there's kind of a psychic thing going on that seems in some ways like they know what I'm thinking.

So if I want them to do something it's best to visualise them doing it, to have an energy of calm, confident detachment, and a knowing that they'll respond. And (for me anyway) if I can achieve that, they generally do respond in the way I see them responding.
And the law of attraction and success for me is/are the same. It's almost the same rules. I think that's what dogs teach us.

Maybe that covers most dog lovers :)

By Friday I will ...  - 
I haven't posted here in a while, mainly because my mum had a major op and I've been nursing her for the last couple of months.
She's really improving and I'm finding more time to get back to business.

I'd like to start this week reviewing my own objectives and goals for the year and to decide whether I'm going to arrange to deliver some training in South Africa this Summer/winter.

I am also going to update my website with a new look and feel and begin preparing for a course I'm attending week beginning 20th April.

I will also schedule and post about a hangout/event to be held by the end of next week.

I think that's enough to get me started.

Good luck everyone for this week!!

Creating Awesome-looking Visual Content for Google+ Just Got a Lot Easier

Look, you're grinding it out, creating visual content for your Google+ posts and doing the best you can to make them look awesome. But how hard is it to find the most accurate and authentic looking logos and icons?

Would it be easier if they were all in one place for you?

Or how about an easy template to use for every possible Google+ visual you will ever create? Would that make your life just a little bit easier? Well, here you go...

Download everything you need here:

Take them and use them as you please. You owe me nothing but to go make something awesome for yourself and your brand.

Basic Information
E-business trainer and consultancy owner ( ), who loves strategy, social media and internet marketing more than her dog (I really love my dog!!). Madly passionate about YOUR success.
My mission is to help you embrace the digital revolution by making it work for you rather than you be driven by it. I help you embrace a mind-set and strategy for success online. I founded Excellence Addicts ( with my business partner in 2006 as we had a shared vision of empowering people to be free, to live their best lives, authentically and with joy and passion. I folded that company finally in January 2012 ( 2years after his death) and embraced my own vision with Taking Your Business Online ( My chosen box of magic tricks consist of Digital media and internet marketing, my 20+ years IT and Leadership skills, training and teaching, writing,  business strategy, NLP, Time Line Therapy(tm), Hypnosis , coaching and the university of life:) I believe in people. I believe in the magic in people. I believe we all have within us the potential to be and do something live our best life with passion, joy and love, irrespective of the outward appearances and circumstances. My passion is working with the humanness that is within us all. The stuff that stops us in our frailty of human conditioning. To remove the barriers we impose upon ourselves and to reveal the true spirit, the true vulnerability of the individual that ultimately results in personal power and strength - and authenticity in your engagement with the world.. I want to help you embrace life, the very essence of your reality. And to teach you to shape and form it to your dream, your vision, so that you achieve a freedom of being. Of being who you are, standing in your truth, expressing the essence of you as a person so that you attract the people who are perfect to help you fulfil your dream, your mission, your purpose, your leadership. This has never been easier than in the current digital revolution. I work with who you really are to help you shine to the world. Irrespective of where you are in your life, I truly believe you can create and live the life you have longed for...if you want it enough, are willing to make the changes, let go of your story, face the challenges and commit to achieving your dream. Certified International Trainer of NLP, NLP Coaching, Time Line Therapy® Techniques, Hypnosis. E-learning modules and mobile training modules available.
Bragging rights
I'm not very good at this and getting better...I'm persistent. I rarely give up. I ran a half marathon many years ago, and last year after 4 weeks training ran a 10K after 20 yrs of no running. I did a masters because it was faster than a degree (while working full time as an IT consultant and just after my son was born - pure madness). I can learn just about anything, turn it into the language of a 6 year old and teach it. I'm an amazing leader when I allow myself to be. I love technology - something it's taken me a life time of working with it to admit!. I love business, learning, practising and teaching! I'm Mastering Marketing Mastery! I am passionate about passing on what I know and helping others - why else did I learn it? And I'm a people person. I have survived a divorce and then losing everything - my partner died, my company folded, I came back to the UK with a suitcase and lived in 1 room with my laptop for a year (not so long ago). I'm a single parent and proud dog owner. And at last I'm on purpose and love who I am more than any other time in my life.
