22 Mar March 24, 2014 – Wells Fargo’s Sean Mabey, Boogie’s Jacques Bastien & NICE Penina Rybak
Sean Mabey has become a regular guest on the show. He is the Director of Small Business Strategy with Wells Fargo, and says that he “wakes up in the morning” to help small businesses grow. Today, Sean is with us to talk about 2014 being the year of the woman entrepreneur. His reasoning is very compelling and all focuses around the number 6.
Jacques Bastien is the CEO of Boogie, a social media agency that focuses on being design-driven. Boogie helps startups and brands communicate with the important 18-34 year old demographic. Jacques is also the founder of PrettySimpl, a new way to look at the commercial printing industry, and rethinks the printing process by making it easy to print beautiful, high quality, or promotional materials using their mobile device. Jacques is writing a book that connects products, startups, entrepreneurship, fashion, and social media.
Penina Rybak began her career as an ASHA certified, pediatric speech-language pathologist. Her focus was on autism and the growing number of children, especially boys, suffering from the condition. She was an Apple evangelist from the beginning (she was part of the 1995-2000 NY TRAID Project), and embraced the iPad as a great tool for autistic children. Today, we have Penina with us to talk about her new book on female entrepreneurship (published by Maven House Press). Penina has also started a organization called NICE, to help women entrepreneurs. Lots to talk about!
