The year was 2006. As career-hungry college grads, we had our eyes set on Wall Street, determined to find fortune and success. We soon realized, however, that our shot at becoming titans of the financial world came with a healthy dose of late nights, high stress and poor health choices. Our intense focus on our careers started to take priority over our health and personal lives, and we saw our colleagues struggling with the same balancing act. When we looked for resources to help us better juggle our work responsibilities with our life outside the office, we came up empty handed. It was that experience that led us to create a business devoted to helping young professionals excel at their jobs without letting their jobs control their lives.
