What are you looking forward to in the new year?

Rob Campbell

Business owner

I'm looking forward to putting 2016 behind us. It has been a year of horrible news and losses. I'm also looking forward to more business, new beginnings and to following my intention to — and insistence upon — the new year being a great one.

Lee Segal


I'm looking forward to balancing work and family better. I've really committed myself to it. My daughter has several marching band performances that I plan to attend, even if I have to miss work and lose business in order to be there to watch her.

Carol Weller

Preschool teacher

I'm very much looking forward to getting back into my normal routine, and to seeing my littles at school, who I've missed so much over the break. We are also planning a river cruise, down the Danube later this year, that I'm really excited about.

Simon Karp

Organic farmer

I'm looking forward to participating in a new, farm-to-table program, where I will be supplying organic, grass-fed, humanely killed beef products to several local eating establishments. It is good for everyone, it is ecologically sound and it is self-sustaining.

Beth Gross


I'm so totally looking forward to breaking each and every one of my new year's resolutions. It's one of the few things I'm naturally very good at. I make several each year, and if I break 80% of them within the first half of January 2017, I'll be a very happy camper.
