Heidi, Chief Patchette

Resolution: In 2014, I resolve to strengthen my personal relationships with my staff, my industry, my friends and my family. Even though life can be hectic and there’s always a deadline looming, it’s the people that really matter at the end of the day. I expect plenty of laughs and lunches, happy hours and amusing adventures, and I certainly see many thank you notes in my future!

Resolution Solution: I believe that setting the goal is only half the battle- getting there is the other half. Lucky for me, I have an amazing accountability group that pushes and pulls each other towards the goals that we set forth. Using a shared google doc, a shared Evernote and weekly accountability calls work are some of the tools we use to keep us ‘honest’ and focused.

Erica, Brand Manager

Resolution: To not drink any Diet Coke for the first month of 2014 and hopefully kick the habit for good!

Resolution Solution: When ordering a drink, get a water instead of a Diet Coke (or any other soda).

Ali, Assistant Manager

Resolution: Be more conscious and aware of political issues that not only affect me, but others so that I can make informed decisions on social, economic, moral issues.

Resolution Solution: Watch the news daily as well as read news websites, not just republican or democrat affiliated sites, but everything to get an unbiased view. I can accomplish this if I make an effort to cut out one hour of skimming social media sites per day.

Leah, Cara and Laura, The Georgetown Store

Resolution: Be more detail oriented, carve out time each day to read, and stretch outside our comfort zones.

Resolution Solution: Move step-by-step, turn off the T.V., and make an effort to embrace new and different experiences.

Wishing you the best in 2014!
