Bachir Bastien

Practical advice for a happier, fuller, and more meaningful life


I’m the trusted life coach and trainer for millennials and early and mid-career executives throughout Asia, the Americas, and Europe.

Born in Haiti and raised by a single mother, I went through every imaginable setback possible. The hardship I’ve been through has driven me to devote my life to helping others overcome and grow through their own challenges. 

I earned my bachelor’s in Economics at National Tsing Hua University and my master’s degree in Management Science at National Chiao Tung University. I currently live in Ontario, Canada where I conduct my workshops and one-on-one coaching in Haitian Creole, French, English, and Mandarin Chinese. My work has been featured in Choice, Tiny Buddha, Addicted2Success, the Haitian Times, Toastmasters, and the Idea Hub at National Tsing Hua University. My latest book COMPLETE MAKEOVER: A SEVEN-STEP PROCESS TO TRANSFORMING YOUR LIFE is currently available both in copy and electronically.

Me in a nutshell:

My Three Core Values

  • Progress
  • Ataraxis
  • Health

My Life Mission

To be the sparkle that will ignite the fire of possibilities in anyone willing to reach their unique personal excellence.

My Vision

I envision a world where everyone wakes up knowing with unwavering certitude that whatever they will be engaged in will be another stepping stone in helping them reach their goals.

My Guiding Principles

  1. Life is both a journey and a destination
  2. We grow more from failures than successes
  3. It takes longer to build a castle than a chicken coop
  4. No success is to be achieved at the expense of one’s health, personal integrity, and loving relationship with others
  5. You never know until you try

Since 2016, I have assisted thousands of individuals and organizations with their communication, leadership, and personnel development challenges.

People who’ve attended my seminars, workshops, and 121 coaching report:

  • Having achieved greater resilience and adaptability to cope with life challenges.
  • Enjoy a higher sense of purpose and self-discipline to focus their time and energy where it matters most.
  • Feeling more confident to share ideas with large audiences than before attending my training.
  • Feeling better equipped to navigate tight schedules and get things done while minimizing stress.
