Hello 2017!!! As the new year approaches, it's the perfect time to sit down and really nut out what you want to achieve and focus on for the year. From personal new year resolutions to career orientated resolutions - a lot can happen in a year and writing them down will get you really motivated and centred ready to power ahead for a successful year.
I had the pleasure of chatting to 6 successful women from a variety of industries including Sara Donaldson, Bec Cooper, Bridge Yorston, Talisa Sutton, Lucy Slight & Emilie Costechareyre about what they are planning to focus on for 2017...

SARA DONALDSON - FOUNDER OF HARPER & HARLEY / THEUNDONE
"Ok, so I have two things that I really want to attack for next year, one being to simplify and get rid of ’stuff’ and ’things’. Purifying my wardrobe and home is really important to me, so I’ll be starting the year with a big clear out. Once thats complete I plan to make myself really think about new items that are brought into the home."
"The other is to get my ‘life admin’ under control and have an organised approach to things like insurance, bills and taxes so it doesn’t overwhelm me. When life is busy its easy to forget about these things and they can quickly pile up and become a much bigger issue to get on top of. "

"It may sound simple, but my new year resolution for 2017 is to stop procrastinating! It has always been a weakness of mine, but 2017 is the year to make a change!! "
BRIDGET YORSTON - DIRECTOR OF BEC & BRIDGE
"My new year resolution for 2017 is to get back into a regular exercise regime! Everything came to a holt after my beautiful daughter Tilly was born, but I am feeling motivated to get back into it in 2017!"

"2017 is going to be all about focusing on my new business while also taking time to care for myself and spend time with loved ones. I'm looking forward to collaborating on more creative projects and growing our team, while also working on personal development and learning new skills.

"I know it's a cliche to have an exercise-based resolution but I've finally found something I'm hell-bent on sticking at - reformer Pilates. So my goal for 2017 is to commit to 10 sessions a month and to work on getting my wonky spine back into good form again. And... hopefully get a butt that won't quit in the process, ha!"
EMILIE COSTECHAREYRE - FOUNDER OF ELVIS ET MOI JEWELLERY
"My personal new year resolutions for 2017 are to look after myself better and to find more space to create and for self reflection! Work wise - I want to collaborate with women in tribe around the world!"
