Happy New Year!
Publisher Linda Hunsicker Publisher Celeste Kline

 Dear Readers,

Whatever your culture, beliefs or traditions, this is a wonderful time of the year. For many of us we are looking forward to spending time with family and friends.

As we usher in the New Year, we can reflect on what improvements we can make in our own lives and how to positively impact the lives of those around us.

Manna on Main is an organization that is always making an impact in the community in extraordinary ways. They are committed to ending hunger in the North Penn region by providing food, social services, educational needs and community outreach serving those in need with the hope “that everyone might be fed.”

With each year that comes our way we learn that the choices we make today will deliver the path that lies ahead. In this issue, we have included motivated and educational articles that can improve your lives throughout the year.

Our feature story is about an incredible woman who is dedicated to empowering and helping redesign women throughout the world. As the Executive Director of the Philadelphia Fashion Incubator, Elissa Bloom brings a unique understanding of the world of fashion, annually mentoring 6 emerging designers with the resources to launch and grow their fashion business. She is also the Ambassador of Philadelphia Women’s Entrepreneurship Day, which is designed to empower, celebrate and support women in business worldwide.

Of course, the New Year is a time to count our blessings and to express our sincerest gratitude for our contributors that help make our publication a resource you rely on.

Happy New Year!
Linda Hunsicker and Celeste Kline, Publishers
