Would-Be Palm Beach Media Mogul Charged With DUI

The lady to your left is Jill Mary Duggan. I'm including her middle name so subsequent Google searches of "Jill (No Middle Name) Duggan" don't snag upon this story, which will reveal that Duggan has just been arrested on a charge of DUI in Palm Beach County.

And why does that matter? Because Jill Mary Duggan is doing something that few mortals dare attempt, in this post-paper year of 2011: She is publishing her own magazine.

I'm not gonna write the full name of the magazine -- again, it oughtn't be Googleable, lest the advertisers get scared off -- but it's got a three-word title, the first two words of which are Palm Beach and the third of which is Woman. According to PBW's Facebook page, its mission is to "deliver targeted, thought provoking, entertaining content that women in Palm Beach want and need. The magazine is an easy read, loaded with tips and inspiration to help us create the life we want. We'll learn from the best -- and from it, we can be our best."

(Inspirational tip for Duggan: "The best" is probably a "them," not an "it," which is an important distinction in the publishing biz. Also: Stop getting arrested.)

A look over Duggan's website suggests that PBW's first cover story will be a profile of Michelle Bernstein, the James Beard Award-winning chef who serves arguably the most delicious haute cuisine in South Floirda. (It's been two years since I've eaten Bernstein's foie gras with cinnamon apples and mini crepes, and I still occasionally dream about the stuff.) If Duggan has been researching her cover subject with the intensity she demands, it's entirely possible that her DUI is the tragic result of an overdeveloped journalistic work ethic.

If so, Duggan should quit hitting the bot books quite so hard. Investors love to see commitment. They're less impressed with imprisonment.

WoW, I remember when she got paid over 250K a year (Arizona), bought a huge house on the mountain in El Paso Texas all courtesy of Helen of Troy because she lied on her resume.  I wondered how Jill could get away with that (until the day came they requested reports/spreadsheets she had no idea how to develop) - I guess it just took a little time to catch up with her lies. 

Also, the girl / women who post "she is still an inspiration to you"    I'd suggest you find a more reliable and honest "Inspiration"

This person you write about is not a journalist. Her last job was working for Karen Hanover, a self proclaimed real estate guru who is under investigation for spoofing as the FBI and guru seminar scam business. I guess she has learned quite a bit from her previous boss calling herself a journalist now.She also highlights Duncan Wierman in her online magazine.Duncan Wierman is the one who outed Karen Hanover and Jill Duggan in the real estate business which is now shut down. Now Duncan Wierman is featured in this magazine. Seems a little underhanded to me. I think the better word would be DESPERATE. Can you do an article on that?  Now that would be some great informative reading for the public..

Private person that made a mistake? For years she was broke and fired from every employment she ever held. We all know she does not use her resume to get jobs. She then works with Hanover and they create a scam that took $$$ from innocent victims and now all of the sudden she has money to start a magazine in Palm Beach or is it yet another scam!

If you really want a good scoop, Brandon, Jill used to be a former employee of a real estate con artist named Karen Hanover, who was arrested by the FBI on Feb 10, 2011. Wouldn't it be great to be the reported who helps get Jill arrested and thrown into prison as well as her former boss?

Jill got off the hook, for now, by turning on her former boss as can be seen in the PDF download of the FBI complaint against Hanover:

http://solidbusinessloans.com/...

but, I understand, only to save herself and that she lied to keep from being charged with conspiracy. I have sources who occasionally keep me updated on this since we are trying to get money back for the victims who Hanover defrauded. Several years ago, Jill had to borrow $3000 from one of my sources to pay her rent and now she is starting up a magazine? Gee, I wonder if the money to do that came from her association with Hanover. I heard that Jill was paid $20,000 a month while she and Karen were happily ripping people off. I also understand that Jill and Karen BOTH planned the fraud that ripped off all those people. Do a Google search on "Jill Duggan Karen Hanover" and Jill should pop up quite a bit.

As soon as Karen has properly been disposed of by the FBI, it would be nice to see Jill go to prison as well. I doubt that she fully understands, or even cares about, the financial harm she and Karen caused others. Just one example of the Google searches you should find that link Jill to Karen:

While it is only a blog post, there is truth to what this blogger says. I dunno about you but I intend on helping the victims of the Hanover-Duggan scam to the best of my ability to get their money back.

Brandon Thorp,A real article. (would be) is the key.This person (Jill Mary Duggan) rents a house in Lake worth and attached a suite number to it #100. It is where the Palm Beach Woman magazine operates out of. What a mogul.
