Rise and shine, entrepreneurs. The early bird gets the profit.

Or does it?

Expert after expert, guru after guru, claims that jumping out of bed at the you-know-what-crack of dawn is the key to productivity and efficacy. But does that hold true for everyone? Can’t a night owl be successful? Can’t you make strides after 12pm?

Is the snooze button so bad for business?

With job-juggling, personal life, and (in many cases) multiple time zones to deal with, early mornings just aren’t possible for everyone. And while the science generally backs nighttime sleep, there’s no one-size-fits-all in life or business.
