Frederick, MD (PRWEB) July 30, 2009
When the guest speaker at NaturaLawn® of America's 2009 owners meeting, held in Scottsdale, AZ, came to the stage, it was clear that those in attendance were in for a special experience. That's because guest speaker Nick Vujicic, founder and president of Attitude is Altitude, was born without arms or legs for no medical reason.
Born in Melbourne, Australia, Vujicic (pronounced Voy-a-chich) spent much of his young life overcoming the struggles associated with his disability. Now, at age 26, Vujicic shares his life experiences with others, spreading the message that there is a purpose in each of the struggles we encounter in our lives, and the attitude we take toward those struggles and fears can be the single most effective factor in overcoming them.
"It was an honor and privilege to have Nick join us this year," said NaturaLawn® of America President Phil Catron. "With the current economy and other challenges that the lawn care industry is facing, it's easy to get discouraged. Nick has shown us that although we all will face many struggles, we can and will succeed if we have the right mindset. The importance of being persistent is invaluable for our franchisees and having Nick speak drove that message home," said Catron.
Vujicic is also the president of Life without Limbs; a non-profit organization whose mission is to cross boundaries and break down barriers to build bridges that bring people to the love and hope found in Jesus Christ.
Headquartered in Frederick, Maryland, NaturaLawn of America is a national franchise company. It currently has 67 locations servicing environmentally concerned customers in 23 states.
