Italian Executive Makes a Success of Living

When others get rattled, Daniela Fava keeps her cool.

A successful executive, Fava created and manages an international translations company headquartered in Reggio Emilia, Italy, with offices in Milano, Lugano and Hamburg. Her staff of 20 oversees more than 1,500 freelance translators around the world. Fava uses Scientology principles and administrative technology developed by L. Ron Hubbard to keep her business thriving.

While still in college, Fava read Scientology: The Fundamentals of Thought.

“This book was tremendously important to me,” says Fava. “It helped me believe in myself and use my abilities to achieve my dreams.”

Although never particularly troubled by problems, Fava had been searching for a way to help others, and through the book she learned technology that does exactly that. She credits Scientology as the key component in her success in business, personal life and raising a family.

“My daughter is the joy of my life,” says Fava, 47. “With the communication skills I learned in Scientology I can make it safe for her to talk to me, no matter what she has to say. I rarely have to give her advice. By respecting her opinions and listening to her, she usually solves her problems herself.”

An optimist, Fava never gives up on her dreams.

“I believe success depends on personal strength and moral integrity,” she says. “When you have that, you can create a better life, not only for yourself but for those you love.”
