We want everyone to have a meaningful and fulfilling life! 

True Success offers practices and teachings that show you how to be successful across your life. For, if you're like many people, you may feel successful in some areas of your life, but not others. True Success shows you how to track down and release any unsuccessful patterns and helps you open to a deep inner strength and wisdom that can help you live more successfully.  

When it comes to success, most people lean into the areas and skills they're good at. And often, we believe success in one area of life will bring success across our lives. We work hard for our success, hoping the money, fame, power or status will keep us safe, bring satisfaction and contentment, and give proof that we're "good enough." 

But in truth, the old model of success doesn't really deliver. Have you ever...

  • Been left with nagging feeling that something's "off" in your life?
  • Been undone by a mishap, unable to get fully back into your life?
  • Or perhaps you keep backsliding into old habits and fears, undoing the gains you worked so hard for.
  • Or maybe you struggle with an addiction, fear of intimacy, or an unresolved trauma...

True Success For All addresses the breakdowns in our life and offers a new vision of how to live successfully, regardless of the circumstances we find ourselves in.

Our Story

Back when we got together, we dreamed of a successful life too! We met while training at a Harvard hospital for mental health - full of promise about what the future held for us. (Maureen is a clinical social worker and Mark is a psychiatrist.) 

But even with all our professional training, we were struggling - in our marriage, not feeling satisfied with life, and trying to cope with day-to-day stressors. And when we looked around, we noticed we weren't the only ones - our friends, family, colleagues, and the clients were all struggling too. The maps we had been following for success weren't working!

So, we began asking, What does it mean to live a truly successful life?  And True Success For All was born. 

We've spent the last ten years mapping what makes for a meaningful and fulfilling life and discovering new ways to release old habits and fears - the ones that keep us locked in our unsuccessful patterns. And we've uncovered a way to reconnect with our True Nature - discovering the joy, confidence and aliveness we use to have in childhood - before we got bogged down with all our fears and doubts. Remember the freedom you used to have? 

You can have that joy and freedom again!

These days, we are happier, closer, more satisfied - living out our passions!                         And we want to share it with you! 

And when you start feeling more successful, you'll probably want to share it with others too! Joy and satisfaction have a way of spreading...

We are not "insulted" cups!

Our Project

We are offering the skills of True Success, through a video series (46 videos) that can be accessed online anywhere in the world and a book that will be released later this year. We have already produced the first 3 videos, the Introduction to True Success. (Paying for these out of our own pocket.) 

So, in this campaign, we are asking you to help us produce SECTION ONE of the video series (15 videos). If we get more than our stated goal, we will use the funds to make as many videos as we can until the money runs out. 

The first three classes (An Introduction to True Success) will always be free. We will release the rest of the classes on a sliding scale fee, so EVERYONE can have access to True Success, regardless of their resources and where they live! You're donation will help us offering the teachings of True Success to more people across the world! 

Our Schedule

We will begin production as soon as the campaign is over. It is our plan to have the next three videos (Class 4-6) available in May/June 2019. We hope to have all of Section One (15 videos) produced by late summer / early fall 2019. 

Our Budget

  • Videographer/Editor charge for 15 videos  $19,000. 
  •  Photo License Purchase for Videos $4,000.
  •  Production Assistant $8,000. 
  •  Website Production $3,200.
  •  Director $4,500.  
  •  Kickstarter Fees $4,100.
  •  Taxes: $4,000.    
  •  There may be some unforeseen costs, so we're adding a $2,000 STRETCH FUNDING   

**As we said above, if we get more money than the stated goal, we'll begin producing SECTION TWO of the Video Series. It will also go towards a little salary for Mark, to help him free up more time so he can work on True Success. We want to get this material to you (and others) as soon as possible!

Special Thanks!

In addition to YOU, we couldn't make these videos and teachings available without the help and support of many people. A few amazing folks:  

  • Preston Benson, our Videographer
  • Theresa Carson, our Director
  • Eric Larsen, Consultant and Master Teacher
  • Colin Smith, Technical Support and Feedback Giver Extraordinaire!                                                              

 Thank You for your support!

Risks and challenges

We will make every effort to stay on task and timeline and ask your patience and wishes for well being should unforeseen issues arise.
