Craig is known as the "World’s Most Disciplined Man". Born lazy and introverted, and suffering crippling anxiety attacks, Craig built systems that allowed him to build multiple 7-figure businesses stress-free. His first multi-million dollar business was his Turbulence Training fitness empire with over 151,000 customers and 25 million YouTube views. He then wrote his first book, The Perfect Day Formula, which has helped over 50,000 entrepreneurs get more done and make more money. Today he owns EarlyToRise.com and coaches thousands of entrepreneurs from over 45 countries. His latest book, The Perfect Week Formula, shows you how to build your business around your life, rather than trying to squeeze in a little bit of life around working all the time in your business.
