In this episode, we’re discussing morning routines.
This episode is very tactical and covers 5 simple but essential components of a perfect morning routine.
I’m really glad that you’re taking this topic seriously because every successful person you admire is serious about their mornings.
I sure am.
How you set up your day is typically how it ends up.
I love my morning routine so much that I call it the Million Dollar Morning, because it makes me feel like a million bucks for the rest of my day – and it creates a level of discipline in my life that helps me make millions of dollars too.
But let me be clear: I am not naturally a morning person.
And if that’s been your excuse, my mission is to change your mind.
If you already have a morning routine, listen to this episode to take it up a notch.
