For almost a decade, Milan Budimkić has been very successful in SEO. He has gained extensive experience working with hundreds of clients worldwide, some of which are on Inc. 500 list. Milan is the author of the main SEO course offered by LINKgroup, a leading private education institution in that part of Europe.
Acknowledging all his professional achievements while also hungry for new challenges, Milan still thinks that the best is yet to come. Wholistique is the project that he believes can be his greatest professional accomplishment.
Outside the office, you can find him enjoying long bike rides across hilly country roads. The main goal in his personal life is to be the best father he can be and support his son in fulfilling his dreams. Milan's motto is "When someone says it can't be done, that only means they can't do it".
First and foremost, Eric is a Dad and a Husband before being an Entrepreneur. He believes that family comes first and that's why he has long quit the daily corporate grind to focus on his own projects, while maintaining a healthy work-life balance.
A strong believer in personal fulfilment Eric has decided to launch Wholistique as a platform for like-minded people to find the help they might need to reach genuine happiness and self-fulfilment. With 15+ years of experience in working remotely, and now managing a team of 20+ individuals living in a dozen different cities around the world, Eric has developed strong skills and expertise in areas such as Productivity and Management, but also, Work-life balance and Personal growth.
With deep passion and curiosity, Mike has been experimenting with optimizing nutrition, sleep quality, physical and mental health, and their interrelatedness on himself for 15+ years. Always striving for perfection, he struggles to embrace the all-important journey and to this day overthinks most things. Mike loves working remotely and managing remote teams (with nearly 10 years experience), results-oriented routines, and hates phone and computer notifications.
Mike launched Wholistique to empower others to become the best versions of themselves, a life philosophy - and more recently a life calling - he’s embodied since a young age, through an expert-driven community-based platform. In his free time, Mike spends time in nature, travels to 10+ countries a year, cooks delicious and nutritious meals, and drinks tea using traditional methods.
