Were you aware that 2 others exist? No only that, these types are hard-wired into our biology and hormones. With over 200 evidence based studies I have put together a fun, interesting, and enlightening speech which follows my work from the book.


It all starts with taking my comprehensive Bio-Time Quiz to figure out your Chronotype (are you a Bear, Lion, Dolphin, or Wolf?). You can take it here: http://www.thepowerofwhenquiz.com/. Wouldn’t your members like to learn When to:
