It's New Year's resolution time again! I love this time of year because reflecting on where I've come from and where I'm going is a great way for me to stay on track as I work towards my goals. Whenever I make my resolutions, I always go back to the previous year's list and see which ones I accomplished and which ones fell through the cracks.
While the philosophy of why we work continues to evolve and modernize, it still feels like we hold on to the dogma of what business is supposed to be. Perhaps with all of this moral awakening, sharing on social media, connecting to others and events like Occupy Wall Street or the Arab Spring, we should be paying closer attention to the human bottom line rather than the financial one?
I am still on a high from meeting a true pioneer and leader in her field, Arianna Huffington. This woman is the real deal. When you talk to her, you can feel her energy. She gives you direct eye contact (which I love), a firm handshake, and lets you know she hears you. Arianna is open and oozes creativity. It is palpable.
