New Year’s Resolutions: From One Young Professional to Another

Working in the nonprofit industry can be an incredibly rewarding experience but, like any job, it can also be incredibly draining. So, with that in mind, I’m committing in 2018 to focusing on my personal health and wellness as well as my professional development and success. And I am, of course, doing this in the most cliche way possible: a list of New Year’s Resolutions which I would like to share with you.

Thanks for coming to work

giphy-simpsons.gifFirst YNPN blog post of 2017. First thought: You survived 2016.

We may be battered from a rough year (don’t even get me started on why… you’re already on the internet, so it should be clear as day).

giacomo.jpgDear Giacomo, 

The New Year is here, and I need your help! I feel like all the resolutions I’m coming up with are pretty boring because everyone else is doing them. I really want to make a big splash at my job this year - any recommendations on meaningful resolutions that would help me succeed in the non-profit workplace?

Sincerely,
