Craig Ballantyne, Creator of The Perfect Day Formula, travels more than 100 days a year, presenting to packed crowds and intimate workshop groups alike. He also takes his skill of public speaking to the virtual world, filming YouTube videos and Facebook and Instagram Live recordings for Early to Rise readers.
