It’s that time of year again. Yup, the one where you analyze all the things about the past year and make hopeful goals to improve on in the new one. Even if you’re not into making resolutions, it’s a time for reflection. Without reflection there can’t be improvement.
I’m not really into making new year’s resolutions but I believe in making goals. Goals can be created and executed at any point in time. Goals also serve as something to aim at, no matter where the destination ends. That is why I think they make healthier options than making new year’s resolutions.
I firmly believe that calm quiet reflection is vital in making improvements at work, life and with yourself. It’s something that took me a long time to figure out, and when I did, it changed my productivity, problem solving skills and even made me a more active listener.
We learned a lot of lessons in 2016 at Les Naly and the one I’m most excited about is – we simply started. That’s right. We had an idea and we just started somewhere, anywhere, everywhere.
The fear itself of simply starting something is so crippling. It’s gut wrenching to throw yourself at something so whole heartedly without knowing what the end result will be.
Even through all the planning and goal setting, the beautiful part about it all is that no one ever really knows where it ends. It’s scary and thrilling yet so exciting, fun and creative. I’m so proud that we simply started in 2016 and it’s already getting better – oh, the best is yet to come!
In 2017, we have some things up our sleeves…
We’re evolving with a new and fresh site lift that reflects the evolution of Les Naly. We’ve been working on this for the last couple of months and will be launching the new look and feel in the first quarter of the year. It’s reenergized us and we can barely hold it in until the big reveal.
Well, hello there… This year we’re going to get up close and personal with you, and frankly, with ourselves. Les Naly is a website for inspiration, emotional connection, visual appetite and lyrical sweet notes. We want women to live life set on their own terms and that includes us, darling. Let’s chat – woman to woman.
We’re kicking off our YouTube channel in 2017 with fresh video content on career, style, beauty, life and food. We also have a special video series called Notes by Naly exclusively from me, Founder and Editor-in-Chief at Les Naly. This is a brand new platform for us and we’d love to hear what you think when we launch it.
I love hearing and telling stories. I love learning about experiences that people have gone through and I love sharing my personal experiences. Our whole premise this year at Les Naly is to get to know you more, and perhaps learn something new about ourselves after hearing your stories. I am absolutely thrilled to start our stories column at Les Naly where we share inspirational, hopeful, sad, scary and enlightening stories from our lives – both at home and work.

The new year is going to be busy, but so worth it! Who else is ready for 2017? What are you up to? Any big new year’s resolutions or goals?
