Most business owners are intentional about what they do in their business.

But WHEN they do things?

More often than not, the timing of significant activities gets left to chance or availability.

What if the timing of an activity, either the time of day or day of the year, made the difference between success and failure?

Daniel Pink, author of When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timinghas researched the effect of timing within dozens of scientific fields and applied the findings to business.
