The tagline on Vanessa Van Edwards’ website reads – “I’m Vanessa and I’m a recovering boring person.” Vanessa has reshaped her life into being a “professional people-watcher” – studying what makes people tick and what drives human behavior.
A behavioral investigator, she is the lead at her human behavior research lab, The Science of People. Designing and executing her own research experiments, her goal is to crack the code of human behavior and how and why people do what they do. She also hosts workshops for individuals looking to learn how to succeed in business and in their personal lives by uncoding the secret dynamics of human behavior.
Vanessa is also a bestselling author – her latest book Captivate was named “one of the most anticipated books of the year” by Apple and is all about how to be the most memorable person in the room.
Let’s be real – we’ve all had those mornings. Those mornings when our alarm goes off, we hit the snooze button five or six times, then run around like a crazy person trying to get dressed and get out the door to make it to work on time.
But it turns out the way you start the day is actually pretty important. The way you spend your mornings sets the tone for the rest of the day; if you start it off with routine and structure, you’ll have a productive day. If you start it off by oversleeping, scrambling to get read, and trying desperately to pour coffee down your throat as you rush out the door… well, you get the picture.
