New Year’s Resolution. Somehow this three word phrase has become a four letter word. At the gym, we complain about the “resolutioners” and how they’re taking our machines and crowding our stretching areas. Somewhere there’s a woman pinching pennies right now because she swore she would get out of debt in 2013. Someone else is covertly looking for a job when her boss’ back is turned because she’s determined to get out of her dead end job.
The problem with resolutions, though, and the reason they’ve becoming quite taboo is this: they usually don’t last. You hit February 1st and you’re back to your old ways – too many cookies and chips, buying a new pair of shoes, languishing in a job you hate. It’s a vicious cycle, and 2013 is yet another year where the same thing is going to happen, right?
2013 is the year to say Why Not! Therefore, I’m so excited to announce that Why Not Girl! is partnering with Career Girl Network, a fantastic website that connects and supports women to obtain our professional goals. I’ll be writing on Career Girl Network about my experience as a budding entrepreneur and Marcy Twete, founder of Career Girl Network, will be providing us tips and resources on how we can say Why Not! to our careers and professional development.
So, to start our partnership, I am pleased to tell you about Career Girl Network’s “Rock the Resolution,” a one-day intensive conference that tackles everything from goal setting to financial fitness, networking and productivity, to give you the tools you need to ROCK 2013.
