FREE Career Webinar: Success with Less - Releasing Obligations and Discovering Joy

From time to time it’s hard not to fall into a “woe is me” attitude when thing are not going one's way. But, when it does happen, it’s always useful to step into the shoes of others who may be having an even tougher time!

At the age of 33, Karen Mangia faced an 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 eyes, watched her energy drain away... Who was she? What was she becoming? And what exactly was wrong with her? Through the confusion, Karen kept working, doing, being and achieving - sacrificing her health, her relationships...herself. 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 her to turn her life around.

A recovering overachiever, Karen's journey through misdiagnosis left her wondering, "What more can I do?" The key to her success was not tied to her determination, her ambition, her relationships - she had to simplify, and adopt a powerful new formula for creating a life without regrets. The key was to let go!

This simple realization led her to a three-step process that has transformed her life, her relationships and her health. Karen will share with you a unique formula will help you simplify the tough stuff that gives us those bad days. You will learn:

  • How to have less of the self-created labels and obligations that keep you from being who you were meant to be
  • "Less" is about choosing the things that really matter and remove the obligations that don't
  • Insightful guidance that we all need to get through the crossroads we all face

Success might be best defined as that elusive something that's always out of reach. But what if having more success started with doing less. Karen will turn your thoughts upside down and help you begin to reassess what drives your happiness so you can be more successful in your life and your work.
