Finding Balance with Alex Simmons

Finding Balance with Alex Simmons

If you've been following along in this series, the name Boon probably isn't unfamiliar. They've partnered with us on 3 of the first episodes of Finding Balance, because it's something they're passionate about too. 

So I sat down with founder of Boon to get his take on balance, mental wellness, professional growth and more. 

Alex Simmons founded Boon in 2019 after experiencing extreme burnout working in investment banking. He knew there had to be a better way for employees to access wellness tools and resources, so he created Boon. 

We talk about this story, how he prioritizes family, the stigma around mental health, and more. Check out the full conversation in this week's episode of Finding Balance with Alex Simmons.
