About Me

My name is Youmie Jean Francois, a passionate Haitian-born, New York City-raised  trailblazer at the crossroads of Travel and Wellness. I wear many hats: a transformational speaker, a brand consultant, a money trauma expert, and the proud Founder/CEO of Flex-N-Fly. Throughout my career, I’ve dedicated myself to enhancing the well-being of travelers and small business owners.

Flex-N-Fly, my award-winning travel and wellness company, has become a beacon of innovation. We bring stretching, yoga, and relaxation classes to airports, aiming to ease the stress that often accompanies modern travel. My mission is clear: bridge the gap between travel and Wellness. Our best-selling anti-theft travel bags, “The Flex Bags” has taken the travel world by storm and can now be found in multiple retailers around the world.

Outside of my personal brand and business, I’ve educated and helped both small business owners and big corporations in improving their brands message and customer success. I love helping people build and scale their businesses.

Beyond the business, I’m a woman of diverse interests. Fluent in four languages, a private pilot, and now, the author of “The Sacrifice: When Transition Looks Like Chaos,” I bring a rich tapestry of experiences to my dynamic leadership style and speaking engagements. I believe in redefining the travel experience, and it starts with a commitment to mental well-being. Here are five facts about me that you should know.

Facts About Me

Every New Year, I have a tradition—I make it a point to wake up in a different country. It’s a personal ritual that fuels my adventurous spirit and sets the tone for the year ahead.

Play Burna Boy’s song “On the Low,” and you’ll find me leading the charge to the dance floor. It’s a song that never fails to get me moving and grooving.

Surprisingly, I’m allergic to cats, and truth be told, I’m not a big fan. However, I’ve made an exception and become a proud cat mom. He’s the only feline companion I’ve ever taken a liking to.

Here’s a personal mantra—I genuinely believe that you are worthy of the life you desire, and nobody can convince me otherwise. Not even you and your doubts.
