Today I am taking part in a prestigious award ceremony for entrepreneurs. Coming from a family of entrepreneurs I expect to be inspired by the stories I hear and the people I will get to know. Creating a successful business and keeping it successful is one of the most challenging career choices. The hours spent on the job are endless and vacation time, when you get it, is always a phone call away from ending prematurely.
So hats off to this year’s winners of the Philadelphia 100 award. The Philadelphia 100 has been the hallmark of entrepreneurial achievement in the region since 1988. The project, which is run by the Wharton Small Business Development Center, The Entrepreneurs’ Forum of Greater Philadelphia, and the Philadelphia Business Journal, identifies and honors the 100 fastest growing, privately held entrepreneurial companies in the Greater Philadelphia Region.
