14 New Years Resolutions for a Future PR Professional

By: Kaitlyn Baase

2013 has officially ended! How was 2013 for you? Good? Bad? Average? However 2013 treated you, there is always room to improve.


For the first time ever, I am having a new years resolution. I believe that new years resolutions are very important, but only if they are taking seriously. Instead of doing the typical resolution (I want to lose 50 pounds, become a vegetarian, give up sugar by 2014. Props to you if you have done any of those by the way,) I decided to create a list of new years resolutions that will help me grow physically, mentally, and emotionally as a young PR professional in the making. They don’t necessarily seem too large, but if you pick a couple and actually commit to them, they will help you out a ton in the long run.

14 new years resolutions for the future PR Pro!

  1. Do something that scares you once a month
  2. Run your first 5k (or 10k, or a marathon)
  3. Write in a journal once a week
  4. Save all of your change to take an awesome 2015 NYE trip
  5. Get a planner and use it religiously
  6. Get a 4.0 next semester
  7. Participate in a Twitter chat once a month
  8. Attend more networking events with PR pros
  9. Get your first press release published
  10. Do PR work for a local business or campus organization for free
  11.  Try a new Starbucks beverage once a month
  12.  Pay it forward at least 20 times in 2014
  13. Quit a bad habit
  14.  Get an internship

Good luck to everyone in 2014!
