About Be Your Maverick

Hi, I’m Ioanna Karelia and chances are you are looking for my help so I’ll share important information that I think will be helpful to you.

You are here probably, because you are looking to do something fulfilling and meaningful while being financially self-reliant and location independent.

I’ll be honest with you. There are a lot of people out there who can help you. Most will tell you that it’s easy and can happen within just a week or two.

If this is what you are looking for, that’s not me.

I don’t have a corner office in a fancy skyscraper, nor am I accustomed to wearing business attire. In fact, I work from home, the beach, cozy coffee shops or any place really, provided I have my laptop and access to the internet, chasing the sun and having free time to play volleyball.

So, if you are looking for a formal business mentor, I’m not your woman.

So, who is Ioanna Karelia?

I was born in Athens, Greece in 1987.

I grew up with both of my parents and always loved sports especially, volleyball. I still play volleyball competitively and I’m a middle hitter.

But that’s not the kind of information you’re looking for, is it?

“Can Ioanna help ME?” You are probably wondering…..

The answer is simple. Maybe.

Perhaps like you, I was always eager for success. After graduating from university, I studied Business Management and specialised in Transportation & Logistics, I decided to follow my passion for sports and work as a personal trainer instead.

It turned out not to be such a bad decision for me. I had great clients who were loyal to me and watching them become fitter and healthier was an amazing experience.

However, I reached a point where I was feeling drained. You see, I was living in London at the time and having to take the tube for an hour then, the bus for another 20 minutes multiple times a day, seven days a week, was exhausting. I didn’t even have the time or energy to see my friends.

For the first time, I realised I was not happy at all.

I took the leap and opened a boutique performance gym while hiring a team of coaches to do the coaching for me and I focused on managing the business.

Three years down the line, I was making six figures and had helped hundreds of clients with their performance in sports, work and life.

Then, the Coronavirus pandemic happened.

Was forced to shut down the gym and long story short, a brick and mortar business with little to no revenues and a lot of fixed overheads was no longer a sustainable option for me.

After closing down, I knew that it was important to me not to commit to another brick and mortar business and all the overheads that come with it.

I also discovered through my journey in the fitness industry that I have a passion for digital marketing and did not want to trade time for money again either.

I also wanted freedom to work from anywhere in the world without having to hire employees or need a massive start up capital, no limits in my income potential and the ability to work for as many hours in the day as I liked.

The typical 9-5 day is not for me.

After doing extensive research, I finally, came across a mentor (Gael) that I trusted.

I registered for his online course to learn all about his business model as it met all my criteria and the rest is history.

I made a commitment to myself. To help other ambitious individuals to escape the corporate rat race and build a life of total freedom.

So, what about you?

Let me highlight the three kinds of people I cannot help:

  1. If you are not willing to invest time and a bit of money and think you can figure things on your own without hands on help, I cannot help you.
  2. If you don’t have a problem or a burning desire, I cannot help you. If being in a job or business that is preventing you from living the life that you desire or feeling unsafe in your career is not a problem that you have, I cannot help you.
  3. If you are not a positive person, I cannot help you.

As you might have noticed, I don’t sell get rich quick dreams. There is no easy quick fix.

Here is who I can help. People:

  • Who are looking to start or grow a business they love
  • Who want to earn income from home
  • Who want a location independent income with uncapped potential
  • Who want to find more meaning in the work that they do
  • Who want to be financially self-reliant
  • Who want to grow multiple income streams and passive income

That’s who I’m here to help: ambitious people like you who want to escape the corporate rat race and build a life of total freedom.

The online world can be confusing with all the information that is out there and knowing where to start can be hard.

If you are like me, you know that you are better off spending your time building your business than searching the internet for blogs and forums on how to get rich quick.

So, if you’re looking for help building an online business that you are truly excited to work on, I know I can help you.

I’m certain that I have turned some people off with being honest and telling the truth.

So, let me ask you: do YOU want a change?

If so, and you’re tired of not living the life you really desire, tired of being tied to one location and of not experiencing the freedom you want then, let’s explore the possibility of working together!

What To Do Now?
