It all sounds so cliche, but we all have to admit, a New Year brings upon us new opportunities to start fresh and maybe this year, actually take our New Year’s Resolutions seriously. How are yours going so far? Ours are…. going.
Some questions for you to start…
We asked a few of our team members what their New Year’s Resolutions are and how they’re going so far…. Here’s what they had to say:
From our beautiful sales associate, Carol: “No sweets and it’s not going well.” (Carol brought in some red velvet cookies for a sick team member today…they were delicious.)
From our incredible owner and founder, Kathy Bigham, “I wish to create new “Possibilities” in my life and the lives of others. I want to find a forever home for the 15 year old girl I am a guardian ad Litem for. We are in talks with her extended family and hoping to have a re-unification over time! Things are happening!” (Kathy volunteers through the organization Guardian Ad Litem, serving as a Guardian the past 6 years).
Our wonderful office manager, Dorri, explained, “I don’t do resolutions. I strive to be better everyday.” (Everyone around her nods).
Sharing similar sentiments, our lovable sales associate Daniel agreed, “My resolution is to never make resolutions.” (He says with a chuckle.)
Our fabulous, VP of Business Development, Ursula, said “To better organize my paper work at home. So far, so good.” (Her office desk… is a different ballgame, according to her office mate. “Just kidding, Ursula!!” Her office mate giggles with a wink toward Ursula, who rolls her eyes in response.)
Regardless of whether you have New Year’s Resolutions and if they’re off to a strong start, a New Year introduces an opportunity for new possibilities as well as a chance to reflect on the passing year. At Bigham, we made a lot of big, exciting changes in 2014– refreshing our store, adding new lines, launching a new site, and entering the social media sphere updating/ creating our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube Channel, Google+ and LinkedIn, all of which are totally #FollowWorthy 🙂 We’ve also become increasingly involved in the local community– volunteering our efforts toward causes such as Hope For Haiti, Freedom Memorial Foundation, Christ Child Society, Winter Wine Festival, Naples Buckeyes in Paradise and many, many more! Overall, 2014 was a wonderful year and we are very much so looking forward to all that 2015 will bring.
2015: A New Year, New Beginnings. May this be your best year yet!!
