Putting on a Fresh Face – and Making it Last

Happy 2017 Fort Bend!  It’s a new year, and I, for one, am ready!  Fort Bend Focus has a fresh, new look for 2017, and we are excited!  We love putting a fresh face on our magazines – especially on Fort Bend Focus as 2017 begins our 13th year of bringing you the people, places and happenings in our community. Now that’s a milestone to celebrate!

This year will be a year of celebration at Fort Bend Focus. This October marks our tenth year of giving, and we are hosting another amazing signature event where we will once again give back to our community that has given us so much. To date, through our signature events alone, we have donated nearly $170,000 to area non-profits, and we are proud to once again shine the spotlight on our amazing community organizations.  Stay tuned for details as Fort Bend Focus shines in 2017 with 10 years of giving!

To help you shine and be your best in the new year, our New Year, New You section has some amazing ideas to help you rejuvenate, refresh and even reinvent. From tips on beauty, nutrition, wellness – and even weight loss – you will find some great ideas to help you create a new you for the new year.

Resolutions are a big part of our New Year’s tradition, and in this issue, we’ve asked some community leaders what they resolve to accomplish in 2017.  Check out what they had to say on page 46.

Each year, I tend to make the same resolutions, but for 2017, I have decided to change it up. I resolve to focus on the things that are important to me on a daily basis – faith, family, friends and health – and not take anything for granted. This past year has taught me that our lives can change in a moment, and my determination as a woman, as a mother, as a community servant is stronger than ever.  Attorney and speaker Cavett Robert said, “Character is the ability to carry out a good resolution long after the excitement of the moment has passed.” Yes, 2017 is going to be exciting for Fort Bend Focus. We are determined to make it so – every day.

Happy New Year to all of our advertisers, readers and Fort Bend friends! We are thankful for you and extend our sincere wishes for a healthy, prosperous and focused new year!

Stay focused,
