Formula for Success with Less

Have you ever felt like success is a secret club to which you’ll never belong no matter how hard you try? Do you ever feel like you’re the only one who can’t figure out how to do it all?

Karen Mangia has felt that way, too.

With her career on the rise and an expanding social circle, Karen thought she was replicating the formula for success she observed around her – keep doing more. Until suddenly, at the age of 33, she faced a chronically undiagnosed illness. She didn’t know what to call it, and neither did a team of five doctors.

Despite diet and exercise, she gained weight, lost color in her skin and in her eyes, and watched her energy drain away. What exactly was wrong with her? And how could she possibly sustain the formula for success she’d learned years prior – do more to be more?

Through the confusion, the fatigue, and the haze, she kept working, doing, being and achieving – sacrificing her health, her relationships. A last-ditch trip to an unorthodox doctor helped her to face a crossroads in her life – identifying the childhood reason for her poor health – and helping to turn her life around.

As a recovering overachiever, her journey through medical misdiagnosis left her wondering, “What more can she do?” The key to her success – and to yours – wasn’t tied to her determination, her ambition or her relationships. She had to simplify and adopt a powerful new formula for creating a life without regrets. That simple realization led her to discover a three step process that has transformed her life, her relationships, and her health.

On April 20th Karen will share with you her formula for Success With Less. Whether you’re trying to make changes in your calendar, your career, your relationships or your health, this simple, straightforward approach will help guide you.

What Karen has learned is that success is not elusive. Success is within reach for everyone, including you. The key is pausing long enough to define success on your terms. And then to release the self-created labels and obligations that keep you from being who you were meant to be. “Less” is about choosing the people and experiences that matter most to you and removing the ones that don’t. What remains is a new definition of success – a success that’s within your grasp.

We invite you to join Karen and many others on the journey to Success With Less.
