In short, it’s a way to approach the New Year with renewal and resolution to inspire a sense of being and purpose. I rather like this over adopting resolutions; I need personal inspiration to just be.

2) To have my own. This encompasses the workplace to elevate marketing and branding communication, as well as social network engagement, like this blog, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+. I’ve been doggedly intentional on sharing my voice and engaging others. Here’s to further exchanges in 2015!
