VYP Blog: December 2016

I joined VYP to expand my professional network and to meet other driven young people I could interact and do business with. I feel I offer Las Vegas a unique, positive, and goal oriented personality. I enjoy being the conduit between need and resource. There is a myriad of talent within our city’s bounds and I enjoy connecting people when I am able. Professionally, I want to absorb and learn as much as I can. I believe there is much opportunity here if you are truly dedicated and forward thinking.

After a successful career in college admissions, Ardie is now focused on making higher education more affordable for families throughout the state. In making a career transition, Ardie wanted to broaden his network and increase his involvement with the Las Vegas Metro Chamber.

‘Tis the season of New Year’s resolutions. Regardless of whether we skipped or staggered past the 2016 finish line, we all have an opportunity to set new goals for 2017. For me, 2016 was very transitional – but in a good way.

A resolution is like a blueprint in that it gives you a picture of the end goal. The more detailed the resolution, the more likely you’ll achieve the end goal, whatever it may be.

Here are my resolutions that may resonate with other young professionals.

As VYP closes the door on another year, we look back at some of the amazing things we did to connect and develop young professionals to the Las Vegas community.
