New Years Resolutions

The New Year has arrived and a fresh start often means a new set of goals to accomplish over the next 365 days. While “new year, new me” is simple enough for many, entrepreneurs have plenty of inspirational resolutions that may encourage the rest of us to step up our game and embrace the blank slate of opportunity. From celebrities to CEOs, these go-getters share their plans for betterment in the new year with these new years resolutions.




Natalie Portman, Academy-Award Winning Actress:

“I think everyone needs to do what’s right for them. And every woman knows the pressures on appearance, but something that one of my friends did that I sort of copied which I liked was to make categories for resolutions, and it wasn’t one thing, so it was like, what do I want to do for my friends, what do I want to do for my family, what do I want to do for my community, what do I want to do for myself?”




Tracee Ellis Ross, Producer and Actress:

“I think a New Year’s resolution would be to be gentle with yourself. I like to call it ‘gentle, gentle,” because sometimes you need that second reminder. So it’s like, make space for being soft with yourself.”




Scott Lipps, CEO and founder of One Management:

“I vow to use more products this year! Very rarely do I use products other than soap and a bit of a moisturizer so this next year gonna take extra care of my skin! It’s all you’ve got!”

Katia Beauchamp, Co-Founder and CEO of Birchbox:

“The year ahead is all about elevating my confidence and celebrating the incredible accomplishments of life. I’ve always been confident to an extent, but it wasn’t a well I could draw from in the hardest moments. I’ve realized that it isn’t about perfection — it’s about owning your strengths, having the humility to see where you need the strength of others, and being open and impressionable to change. It’s within my reach and I feel now more than ever that this type of confidence in everyone will be critical to the future we all want to see come to fruition.”

Danny Meyer, Founder of Shake Shack:

“My New Year’s resolution is once and for all to spend significantly less time reading and writing emails, and far more time being present and looking people in the eye.”

Zendaya, Actress and Singer:

“… My mom recently took a pic of me looking down at my phone when [we] were out to dinner. She captioned it, ‘dinner with @zendaya and her phone.’ Sorry, mom! I just start scrolling and tune everybody out. Seriously, I’ve gotta do a detox.”

Stephen Kaufer, CEO of TripAdvisor:

“My New Year’s resolution is to use the power and influence of TripAdvisor’s brand to aid in the humanitarian refugee crisis that we’re seeing in many parts of the Middle East, Africa, and Europe today. In addition to our commitment to organizations like Mercy Corps and The International Rescue Committee, I want to encourage others in the travel industry and around the world to take action and help provide refugees with critical access to information, essential education opportunities, and resettlement support. It’s one of the worst humanitarian disasters of our generation. Years from now, I want my grandkids to know that I joined with others and chose to help, if only in a small way.”

Helen Mirren, Academy-Award Winning Actress:

“Stop procrastinating. That’s my new year’s resolution for everybody, but mostly for myself. Don’t procrastinate, just don’t. I have my whole life and every year I have to make the same resolution because I always procrastinate.”

Sara Blakely, Founder of Spanx:

“I just joined Instagram this past fall (late to the party!) when I launched my book, ‘The Belly Art Project,’ to create awareness for maternal health. One of my resolutions is to use my social platforms to build awareness for organizations that empower women. Being philanthropic can be fun and isn’t always about making a financial contribution.”

Neil Vogel, CEO of About.com:

“My almost-three-year old is obsessed with the guitar, so my goal is to learn to play guitar serviceably. Only then will I be on par with his other great hero, Spiderman.”

Gina Rodriguez, Golden Globe Winning Actress:

“My resolutions are again, they’re constantly, they’re daily, and they’re usually focused on self love and working on not turning the knife on myself, not tearing myself down, fighting fear, trying something that scares me at least once every day, and not allowing rejection or failure to stop me from trying…”

Drew and Jonathan Scott, HGTV’s Property Brothers:

“Both of our New Year’s resolutions include more travel… but specifically to places we have never been. As color will be big the new year, we’re hoping to find vibrant inspiration in exotic parts of the globe we have yet to experience. Stay tuned.”

Whether your sights are set on smaller personal goals, or your plans are to revolutionize your industry, this year provides a brand new start in making it happen. Take the advice from these noteworthy individuals for a prosperous and rewarding new year.
