10 Ways To Jumpstart Your 2015

With a new year comes a chance to restart.

You have the opportunity to do things that maybe you didn’t make time for last year. This could include setting new goals, meeting new people, or sharing your story. 

Revamping your about.me page is just one simple way to kick the year off with style and better show who you are, where you’re going and who you want to be.

Here are five ways to jumpstart the new year.

From squash to painting, find something that you love and go for it. Add it as an interest to your about.me bio to find and connect with others who share the same hobbies.

  1. Start a gratitude journal.


Make 2015 a year for giving thanks. You can do this by chronicling everything that brings you joy and what you are thankful for each and every day. Starting a gratitude journal can not only make you happier, but it can improve the lives of those around you.

  1. Smile.

It’s amazing how such a simple thing can improve our lives tenfold. You’ll be surprised to learn about all of the benefits of what a smile can do, let alone make you look like a million bucks.

  1. Promote yourself.

Why shy away from promoting the things that make you, you? Whether that’s your website or a new project you’re working on, share it with others by putting it on your about.me page or tweeting it out to people you think could benefit from it.
