Nely Galan shared some amazing stories of her rise to becoming a mega media mogul and business woman extraordinaire with attendees at the March luncheon of the Phoenix chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO).
Approximately 200 women (and a few men) gathered to network and hear Nely’s story of launching Telemundo, creating the reality show “The Swan” and appearing on Donald Trump’s “The Celebrity Apprentice”.
One of her stories revealed how, at the age of ten, she became the youngest Avon lady in New Jersey, secretly dealing tinted lip gloss for her aunt during school lunch break raising enough money to pay the tuition for the private Catholic school her parents wanted her to attend but could not afford.
Nely encouraged the audience to “make fear your ally” since fear is a natural part of the human condition. She suggested that the presence of fear is an indication that either there is a ‘thing’ that must be done or a lesson that must be learned.
She called the NAWBO Phoenix audience “feisty” and said it made her keynote really fun. The atmosphere was absolutely electric as we were uplifted, inspired and empowered by her message.
NAWBO Phoenix was named the “Best Place to Network” by Arizona Magazine. The monthly luncheons are held on the second Wednesdays of each month at the Orange Tree Resort. The group also holds monthly evening networking events.
