Those alliterative pearls of wisdom come from Melissa Hubler, group leader of payroll & benefits at Subaru of Indiana Automotive, Inc., and EBN’s 2009 VSP “GetFit” Benny Award winner. I recently sat down with Hubler and her four fellow Benny honorees to hear the valuable life lessons the recession has taught them — personally and professionally — and what items they would recommend for stocking a “recession survival kit.”

Download this year’s Benny roundtable at, and listen in as your peers commiserate with you on the difficulties this year has brought and encourage you with their words of inspiration and hope.

I'll be honoring this year's Benny winners on Monday morning at EBN's 22nd annual Benefits Forum & Expo. If you'll be joining us this year, see you in Atlanta! If not, stay tuned to and the Daily Diversion for daily updates.
