My name is Cristina Chipurici, but all my friends call me ‘Pyuric’ – it’s a nickname I’ve had for 25+ years, based on my family name (by the way, I have no connection with Dan Puric or Chipurici Studio). I was born and raised in Bucharest, Romania.
I’m currently building The CEO Library together with Bobby Voicu, a website we started in September 2017, with books recommended by people we look up to. We’re guiding others towards the best resources that will help them accelerate their learning process, question their assumptions and continuously improve (join our newsletter if this sounds interesting to you). So far we’ve interviewed more than 200 people who are among the best at what they do (successful entrepreneurs, C-level executives, creatives, writers, podcasters, marketers, professional athletes and so on) on the books that shaped their journeys and their habits.
Previous experience: almost 10 years working in the music industry. Started as a music blogger, founder of Monden.info, the most popular local music blog and first blog sold in Romania. Studied Music Business at Berklee College of Music and switched to promoting independent hip-hop & rock artists.
Took a detour in digital marketing and PR strategy, with a focus on content marketing. Learned from working with brands from a variety of industries and sizes, from local to global startups, small businesses and Fortune 500, high performers and creatives. I’m still a contributor to PORC‘s growth – a local streetwear brand co-founded by my fiancé in 2012 (for full experience, Linkedin‘s up to date).
Running is my favorite default activity when I’m not writing or reading books (training / recharging through long distance mountain trails competitions).
I don’t drink alcohol at all, as it hurts my running performance (my last sip was in spring 2017). I don’t attend parties or events (as an introvert who worked for almost 10 years in the entertainment business, now I’d rather stay home, read books and go to sleep before midnight). I’ve been on ovo-lacto-vegetarian diet since 2011 (here are more thoughts on the subject), and stopped consuming processed sugar and wheat in 2017. I do love lattes, though – or maybe just milk?
At the end of 2017 I quit social media, despite the fact that I was one of the most influential / followed Romanian women. I’m currently teaching others how to deal with information overload in the digital age, public pressure, and use social media channels in a more mindful & efficient way – especially as entrepreneurs and/or creatives.
I’ve been guiding my life after the Stoic principles.
