My 2016 Year End Review

year-end-review

For the last few days everyone’s been bitching and complaining about how terrible 2016 has been, but I’ve gotta be honest with you peeps – 2016 was pretty awesome if you ask me.

Maybe it was a bad year for SOME people. Or maybe they’re just choosing to focus on the bad. But I think that if we all look hard enough, there’s gotta be something positive that came out of this past year.

Learning, growth, discovery…something.

Even if your year was full of nothing but epic failures, then dude- you had some serious learning experiences that will prove to be super valuable moving forward.

So here are some of the highlights of this past year- my 2016 year end review.

5 Easy Ways To Spruce Up Your LinkedIn Profile

linkedin-profile

With the new year right around the corner, this is the PERFECT time to make sure your resume’s up to date and in order. Today my friend Tori’s sharing some really great tips that’ll help you with your LinkedIn profile because let’s face it – it’s just as important as a paper resume these days.


LinkedIn: the ultimate networking and career-building website out there. Serving as a digital portfolio, it’s the Resume 2.0. It allows you to showcase yourself as more than just a professional, but also a person you’d want to grab a drink with after work.

As a social media marketer, Linkedin is usually a perpetually-open tab on my Mac. In addition to growing the LinkedIn profile for the company I work for, I love sharing my own blog posts about entrepreneurship and marketing. After recently starting my own #sidehustle, LinkedIn became even more important for building a quality portfolio and connecting with those who need social media and marketing assistance.

Anyone can have a LinkedIn profile, especially in this day and age. All it takes is responding to that pesky invite email in your inbox. It’s exponentially harder to have one that accurately and energetically conveys what you’re all about, and can be used to build new relationships

Instead of spending hours perfecting your profile, it’s smarter to focus on a few key items that will really make an impact. As the new year approaches, it’s time to give your profile the spruce-up it needs…without a complete upheaval. These 5 easy updates will add to your profile’s content and direction: try them out on your holiday plane-ride home or while in line at Target returning those maroon towels your aunt got you.

Alright guys, with the holidays right around the corner, I definitely wanted to step up my game this year.

Because even though Joe and I have been buying holiday decorations here and there, last year our guest bathroom was super plain Jane. AKA – zero Christmas decorations.

We’ll likely be hosting guests over the next couple of weeks, though, so I wanted to make sure that our guests felt welcome in a space that was fun and festive!

Hence my visit to Target.

How I escaped their holiday section without spending a fortune is one of the biggest mysteries of all time.

Because everything was gorgeous and I wanted to buy it all.
