That important 10 AM presentation.

You’ve been preparing for it for weeks. You’ve have all your i’s dotted and all your t’s crossed. You are ready to bring the house down and give a presentation the world has never been seen before.

This is your moment!

At 9:55 AM…

…Your energy crashes as if it jumped off a cliff and disappeared into oblivion… you did not have breakfast that morning. As a result, your blood sugar dropped, taking down your energy, creativity, motivation, focus, imagination and all other qualities you need to get the job done. Bummer!

This is exactly what happened to a dear friend of mine (sorry, not going to name any names). Needless to say, he did not rock the presentation (or at least not as much as he could’ve).

When your first meal of the day is nonexistent or made out of too much sugar or fat, your energy suffers. When your energy suffers, so does you productivity and  the ability to get things done.

Ready? Let’s take your mornings to next level:
