Soundbite: Jane Velez-Mitchell Balances Living Simply With Success

velez_10-29“One of the main themes in Jane’s book, for those of you who have read it know, is Jane’s plea, if you will, for living a simpler life. Now I don’t know about you all, but to me if you host a national syndicated successful daily television show, write a bestselling book and you’re one of the most sought-after and active speakers in the entire CNN/HLN universe, that doesn’t sound very simple.”

Head of HLN Ken Jautz at the book party for Issues host Jane Velez-Mitchell last night in New York. Her book, “iWant: My Journey from Addiction and Overconsumption to a Simpler, Honest Life” is out this week and will debut on the New York Times Bestseller’s List. Velez-Mitchell spoke after Jautz, joking, “Fabulous concept: ‘Let’s have a cocktail party to celebrate a book about recovering from alcoholism.'” She later said of her book, “I really think that we’re helping, and it’s really thanks to everyone.”
