As we’re launching LiveConnections’ 10th Anniversary season, I have become a little obsessed with the number 10.
10 years as a milestone of organizational success.
The power of 10 as a metaphor for exponential impact.
Top 10 lists as a fun way to organize information.
To that end, here’s my list of the 10 best things (in no particular order) about the year ahead.
I hope you’ll celebrate with us!
P.S. We’re also thrilled to be one of 10 organizations in Philadelphia selected for Aetna’s Voices of Health campaign. VOTE FOR US every day from now through November 9 to help us win $20,000!
