Business Class: Episode 4 The Search for Balance | American Express

Episode 4 explores the importance of balance and how tools such as setting boundaries and time management, can help business owners and their teams feel calmer and lead to more productivity.

Michael Acton Smith, co-founder and co-CEO of meditation app Calm delves into how and why prioritizing breaks can help improve productivity in the workplace and gives an easy place to start – with one deep breath. Catching up with Sana Javeri Kadri, founder and CEO of spice brand Diaspora Co., we hear how she set boundaries and managed her time to create a better work-life balance as her company grew. In contrast, we see how Tom Hobbs and Rupert Gillies, founders and sole employees of eco-friendly surfboard brand Spooked Kooks, are still hard at work getting their business from passion project to full-time jobs yet carve out daily practices to reset, connect, and enjoy their passion for surfing.
