Name: Nico Boesten
What business or organization are you involved with? New Horizon Productions
What is your role with that organization? work dad/general manager
What’s your favourite thing about living in the Okanagan? Oooooh. It’s a toss-up between the traffic and the sun. Haha. OK, let’s go with the fact that everything is within biking distance.
If you could have lunch with anyone in the world, who would you choose and why? Simon Sinek. This guy has some refreshing perspectives on business, kids and life in general.
What’s your go-to happy place? Mmmmmmmexico.
What are you most proud of? My offspring, Misha (19) and Sylas (18), are some unbelievable human beings who continuously make me smile.
What are the top three things on your bucket list?
1. Jumping off of a mountain (sure, with one of those paragliders attached)
2. See my kids get married
3. Go over 300 km/h on a motorbike, preferably in Italy
What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten? Paper.
Latest movie or book: Emotional Intelligence 2.0.
What’s the best gift you’ve ever received? It’s a toss-up. My first thought would be my kids, but I’ve been mentioning them a lot here. Right up there would be the last trip my dad made out to Connecticut to come visit me.
If today were your last day, how would you spend it? It would be with my kids. We’d probably spend most of it at a beach or doing some dumb and childish things on a wild adventure.
