It is most inspiring to watch someone’s dream come true in real time. That is exactly the experience all of us who have been part of Dianne’s journey in creating, executing and nurturing this awesome idea she has had over the years. Last year I was recognized with the Innovator of the Year Award. It took me a moment to let that sink in. As I internally struggled with the humbling recognition, I felt it was important to stand in the light my sister was so graciously providing and allow myself to glow in all of its meaning. The L.O.V.E Awards is more than just another Hollywood event that gets lost in the clutter and noise of all the self aggrandizement that is part of the culture. This Awards event touches the core of our humanity as women and men, who through our work in the marketplace and at home, are committed to serve the greater good for others and have not let external labels define or determine our value. I am immensely grateful to be part of the L.O.V.E Awards family and wish Dianne and her team continued growth and success.
