Business Series: Highlights of 2018 & Upcoming Goals for 2019

Wow!!! What a year 2018 was!! It all kicked off with a HUGE team meeting in Vancouver last year, this is where we really took the time to analyze the type of content, projects, and partnerships we take on. From that meeting on we made an effort to think MORE about the environment, animals, and supporting smaller shops and Canadian companies. While we aren’t exclusive to all of these categories, we are trying our best to work more with companies that tick these boxes and it has been a TON of fun.

Jillian Harris Business Recap 2

We’ve certainly partnered with more conscious and local brands in 2018 that were in line with our values, we focused on smaller brands and encouraged donations to be part of our partnerships and collaborations.

Obviously, it was an AMAZING year for my personal life (check out my highlights and personal goals here!) but it was also an incredible year for the business too!! There are so many things to celebrate from 2018 and goals to share as we gear up for 2019 so today, I’m going to highlight these for you!

So, in no particular order … I’m going to share our wins from the year below!

2018 Company Highlights

JH x MA Adorned Collection

It was such a pleasure to team up with Melanie Auld to create the Adorned collection! The JH x MA Adorned collection is the perfect way to celebrate yourself and also makes the perfect gift idea … from birthdays to Mother’s Day, weddings, and baby showers … or, just to remember a loved one and have them close by, the options are truly endless.

JH x Etsy Holiday Collection

I worked closely with Etsy and 9 AMAZING Canadian Etsy makers to create a limited edition holiday collection which launched this past November! The collection included a selection of locally made and vegan, lifestyle, apparel, and home decor items that was PERFECT for the holiday season!!

Team Jilly’s speaking engagement at the Atelier Conference!

Team Jilly and Tori headed to Niagara-On-The-Lake for their VERY FIRST public speaking engagement at The Atelier Conference, even despite their deep fear of public speaking! See how they did, here!

JH x Saje Wellness Limited Edition Diffuser

This was such a fun and on brand partnership for us! I have always loved Saje Wellness products and their company as a whole so it was a natural fit (pun intended!) when they asked if I wanted to partner with them to create a limited edition diffuser! Stay tuned for more fun this coming year … 😉

Cookbook Photoshoot

We FINALLY wrapped our photoshoots for our upcoming cookbook … this was a TON of work … and we can’t WAIT to see the final product … coming Fall 2019 …

Team Jilly’s trip to Mexico!

Oohhhhh did we ever have some fun in Mexico!! We toured Tulum, cruised 5th Ave in Playa and SO much more! Read ALL about it, and check out our very first travel vlog, here!

Jillian Harris 2018 Business Highlights

Team Jilly’s trip to Dallas to attend the RewardStyle Conference!

Team Jilly and I took off to Dallas to attend the Rewardstyle Conference which I also presented at in three classroom sessions! My topic was “Finding Your Why” which touched on the importance of brand core values, mission statements, what we have learned so far as a team, where we want to grow and some of the challenges we have faced along the way!

Nacho’s campaign against animal testing with the Body Shop

We were thrilled when the Body Shop approached us to have Nacho represent in their campaign and stand up against animal testing!

Nacho featured in Times Square!

He even made it to TIMES SQUARE!!!! I may have cried … proud mama moment!

Jillian Harris Business Recap
I have officially joined the  TELUS Friendly Future Foundation board!! I have never been a part of something like this before so I’m beyond excited to see what the future holds and how I can play a role in this amazing endeavor!!

The TELUS Friendly Future Foundation board is dedicated to helping grassroots charities, just like Mamas for Mamas, with the goal of leveling the playing field for disadvantaged Canadian kids, making sure they have the same opportunities as everyone else for a bright, successful future!!!

12 Days Giveaways Were Insane!

We wrapped the year with our 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways and it was INSANE! We had over 60k in giveaways and 71 winners!!! It was by far our best year yet and we can’t wait to see how we can top it next year!!

    Hi Jillian! And Happy New Year!!

    Random question – I literally get all of my décor inspo from you and your blog > from paint colors, rugs, mirrors and bedding – I LOVE it all!! Do you think the Caitlin Wilson rug you have in your living room is too busy for a dining room/under the table? I’ve been eyeing that one for a while – totally copied your kitchen runner and love it 🙂 – just have been hesitant with the placement..

    Thanks 🙂

    Hi there. I just wanted to comment on Saje. I’ve also sent them an email. I know that you have partnered with them. Love their products. Also I know you have had concerns with companies packaging. I just received a diffuser from them and have to say was very disappointed in their packaging. The box it came in was about 3 times bigger than the box the diffuser was in and it was stuffed with paper. Really don’t think there was a need for such a large box. Anyway just thought I’d mention it. Take care. D

    Jillian I cannot wait for your next collaboration with Sage Wellmess… I missed out on your first diffuser but I won’t let that happen again!!!
