Successful Night Owls

“Early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.” Right?  Not necessarily. In her article, “Sleep In and Make Millions,” Carol Roth breaks down this myth and gives us night owls hope for being healthy, wealthy and wise!

However, it requires some discipline and good systems.  Roth takes tips from several late-rising millionaires, and their advice is applicable for everyone…not just the late-risers. Their advice boils down to these 5 categories:

  • Know what works for you
  • Be ready to work when you wake up
  • Schedule, schedule, schedule
  • Create strong systems
  • Take care of yourself.
