Jacques Bastien


I am an entrepreneur, writer, and college professor. I am also the founder of Boogie Brands, the company behind boogie.co, shade.co, nappy.co, and snappybooth.co. I also use my diverse experiences to work with companies as a speaker and consultant conducting keynotes, workshops, and training sessions that focus on helping leaders become better leaders.

What hobbies, causes, or activities are you passionate about aside from your work?

Aside from work, I love training parkour, playing the guitar, reading, playing basketball, and writing.

What’s something you do at your business that’s "weird" and not commonly done?

In 2009, we started with an unfurnished basement office. By 2016, we grew to 3 offices in 3 cities. In March 2017, we did a weird thing and closed down all 3 of our offices to bring our team 100% remote.

What inspired you to start your business?

I simply wanted to be able to "make a change" and bring opportunities to those that need it. Changing the way we live and changing the way we work. After 10 years of running my companies, we're fortunate to be in the position now to pursue our original aspirations for starting our company.
