I was very pleased to receive an award from the Boston Business Journal last night as one of the 40 top business/nonprofit leaders in Boston under the age of 40.
I’m quite sure that my award was the result of a friend stapling two $20 on the application.
You can see the list of honorees and be a judge for yourself. (I did get to rub elbows with Larry Lucchino, whose nephew in my “year” as well.)
As part of the ceremony, we were allowed three free words — such as, “Go Red Sox!” or in financial news, “Don’t Panic. Yet.” Any words thereafter cost $25/each, with payments donated to a local nonprofit agency.
It was an expensive evening for me.
I’ll post my speech next week…
