Growing up in a hard-working family, it seems as if Ildiko Ferenczi’s pursuit in the business world was inevitable. Now, she is the founder of Billionaire Collectables and host of the Pretty and Punk Podcast. Right after she was born, her mother brought her back to their family shop, and continued to work. Life in Europe was good, but hard. At 19, her mother decided to leave everything behind to pursue a better life for her family in Canada.
She watched her mother sell her most loved possessions, opening an antique shop to put food on the table for her children. And even at their young age, Ildiko and her brother did what they could to support their mother, even using their weekends to “treasure-hunt” for items to sell at the shop at garage and estate sales.
The next few years were storied with tragedy and accomplishments, all culminating to where Ildiko is today, a proud mother of two MIRACLE BABIES of her own, and happily married to her husband. After watching a documentary together, they came up with the idea that blossomed into the BUSINESS Billionaire Collectibles.
After the birth of her second MIRACLE child, which led to unexpected DEVASTATING health NEWS AND challenges, Ildiko was still receiving multiple messages from parents in similar situations, stunned on how her family was still so picture-perfect. She and her husband were constantly being asked for advice, so the next natural step was to start a podcast to share their secrets, and to interview other HIGH PROFILE BUSINESS couples that had advice and insights to share.
Having so many connections to FAMOUS BUSINESS couples with knowledge to share with the world, Ildiko and her husband knew it was the right time to start a podcast.
Even through the pandemic, the podcast has seen monumental support from listeners looking to learn insider secrets. Listeners are able to get an inside view into Ildiko and her husband’s journey as a couple, parents, and entrepreneurs. The raw and real look is valuable for any entrepreneur with kids, or thinking about having kids, who wants to find the balance AND INSPIRATION they need in life between business and family.
