ABOUT

Hey, I'm Ioana. 


An entrepreneur, an explorer of the heart and a relentless surfer of this magical world, dedicated to helping people live their life fiercely. To be vulnerable, wholehearted, and ready to be seen.



I've named myself "a professional dreamer" because for the last 10 years I was seriously involved in creating the life of my dreams. 

From writing articles for the best websites in the world, like CNN & HuffPost, to sharing the stories of my heart on this blog, from traveling as a full-time job to working with amazing clients - I've found out that it doesn't matter what dream you have. It's possible! 

And through my work, I help people like you dream big and back it up with meaningful action and creative results.



People always ask me how did I get started in this adventure. 


Well, all my life I've felt invisible. But at the same time, I’ve been insatiably curious about the world and what is possible. 

Feeling invisible, with no voice and no possibilities - it's not so uncommon. You'd be surprised! Maybe even you have felt sometimes that you have two driving forces inside of you: one that pushes you forward to accomplish your dreams, and the other one whispering that you can't. 

After several failed attempts in corporate jobs and a lot of anxiety trying to please other people, I've realized that feeling invisible was a strength, not a liability. Because, exactly like me, there are millions of people. And together, we have an unshakable optimistic voice

I gave up the security of the 9 to 5, began writing on my blog (a powerful stage where you are naked, ready to be seen), and doing a multitude of odd jobs to keep my boat floating. 

Traveling the world opened for me an entire Universe of stories and possibilities. I was feeling stronger every day and my favorite game was to try. Not to be perfect, but just to ask for what I want. And the world had an answer for me, every freakin' time: YES! Hell, YES!

I am different and I'm proud of that. I am weird, with unconventional opinions, and I don't fit in any box. I love adult language, I am a bad teacher, speaking my truth, with no judgments or advices for others. You don't have to (or need to) believe me. We are here to play. 

You already have everything you NEED to create the life of your dreams. Those traditional rules you have been following all your life are made to be broken. And I would be very honored to teach you how to misbehave! 

Most importantly, I believe that no matter what your dreams or obstacles are, you have the power to change your life. Like I did


* indulged into the luxury of more than 50 5-star hotels in less than one year. 

* making interviews with wonderful people like Nataly Osmann #FollowMeTo, Jason Silva and Neil Patel. 

* flying all over the world with world-class airlines. 

* 'building' the only Travel Writing School in Romania with more than 800 students. 

* writing for HuffPost, CNN, Forbes, Elite Daily and much more. 

* self-publishing four books. 

* working with amazing people from all over the world, which made me expand my own ideas about what it means to live a fully creative, meaningful, and abundant life.



My partner, Vlad Semen, and I are here to serve! 


Our company is built on love, passion, and commitment to really SEE YOU. But on a goofy side, we are here just to have fun. 

Through our free content, our paid online programs and anything else we might offer — we’re in this NOT to make a difference or to change the world, but to really help you build the life that you want. 

Whether you’re looking to start a business, to reinvent yourself, or just to take a gap year and travel around the world, we’re here to help you say: "DONE! Next dream, please!" 

Yes, this is a business and we sell things. Yes, we’re proud and grateful to earn a living doing so. And we keep doing more creative things for free because of you! 

I don’t have all the answers. I make mistakes, have crazy days and get soaked in fear and self-doubt, just like everybody else.

My purpose is to have fun, to provoke you with courageous ideas and to be honest and loyal to you. 

If you’ve read this far, thank you. I hope this is just the beginning of our friendship. And, I’d love to learn more about you. You can write me at budeanu.ioana@gmail.com.


Thank you so much for being here. It is THE most important thing for me to be connected with people who want to speak their minds and shout out their voices. 


Let's have some fun together and bring on the kinky stuff. 


With all my love,
Ioana
