General Motors CEO Mary Barra, former FLOTUS Michelle Obama, Hint Water founder and CEO Kara Goldin and many other women are living proof of it; the most successful women are morning people.
According to Summer Goldman, a criminal defense attorney in Saint Petersburg, "For a woman in business, starting their day early to get a leg up on the competition and a head start on their busy day, even if doing so is not really in their natural makeup, can be truly beneficial in many different ways."
