Success with Less

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 doc helped her to face a crossroads in her life.

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

Are you ready to release the obligations that no longer serve you to make room for the people and experiences that do? Karen shares the simple, three step process she discovered while transforming her life - a formula that will work for you as you seek to make your own changes.

Book sales and signings will follow the presentation, with proceeds benefitting the Carmel Clay Public Library Foundation. Registration is required by emailing the Foundation office at karland@carmel.lib.in.us or by calling (317) 814-3984.

This program will be held in the Program Room.
