Success Energy Equation: What it Really Takes to Win at Work and Still Have a Life presented by Michelle Cederberg 

What is it that makes successful people truly successful? Many would agree you need vision, passion, and a willingness to work hard, which often translates to long hours and sacrifice. But can you really call it success if that sacrifice robs you of health, energy, or life balance? So what does it really take to win at work, and still have a life?

The Success-Energy Equation identifies four elements that will help cultivate success and satisfaction at work and foster health and happiness in your life.
