The most common challenge for 2009

Excellent Words of Advice

Florida Business Woman Helen Vella tells us what she saw as the biggest challenge for people in 2009 and what her advice would be.


“The most common challenge I think for 2009 is the media and conversations of ‘how things are tough for everyone and nobody knows what they are going to do.’ To be able to be aware of what is going on around us is essential, but not becoming part of it when it is negative is essential for your well being. This is your health, as well as your family and your business. Surround yourself with positive people who accept a challenge, or a set back, and can still move forward with focus and a goal in mind.  Be informed but not absorbed.”


Helen Vella is a board member of the Child Rescue Networking and NAWBO – National Association of Women Business Owners.  She was presented with the Jefferson Award for Volunteer Services as well as winning the State of Florida award for Public Speaking by Business & Professional Women.
