As we prepare to enter 2019, The Niche Movement team took some time to reflect. We give you tips and tricks for finding your niche all year long, but the New Year is a special time to celebrate accomplishments, to goal set, and above all to relax. Our Social Media Intern Jaylene Perez took the time to write about taking risks. Jaylene urges the Niche community to pause in the hubbub of the holidays. Take a beat. Use the extra time to consider how far you've come in 2018—even if the growth is hard to see right now.
According to U.S. News & World Report, 80% of New Year's resolutions fail by the second week of February. (We know, not exactly what you wanted to hear). In this podcast episode, we confronted the 80% statistic head-on and broke down what successful goal setting looks like. The Niche Movement Social Media Intern Jaylene Perez and The Niche Movement Founder Kevin O’Connell got together to talk through their fumbles and triumphs when it came to personal goals, career goals, and even mental health.
In the last three months, I have given a lot of thought about what trends and in-demand skill sets will be needed to succeed in 2018. Working for myself, I constantly think about new ways to innovate, stay ahead of the competition and understand the critical skills that I need to learn to stay relevant.So, here are five in-demand skills that you may want to consider to help you make a career pivot, become an asset in your current job, or add a new skill to our portfolio. Each skill is presented in why it’s important, what brands or organizations are investing in this skill, where you can learn it, and what type of jobs/salaries you can expect.
What is it about New Year’s resolutions? The mark of “Day 1” on a fresh, empty 365-day calendar seems to evoke a sense of newness and possibility within us. We chart out the New Year with high hopes of finally losing those ten stubborn pounds, tucking away 10% of our paychecks into a savings account, and adapting a healthier, more well-rounded lifestyle.
