Able to earn more in 1 month than from 6 months of teaching 

“Before IBA I was one of those people that posts and hopes for the best and it didn’t convert anything. Since diving into the modules into IBA I’ve been able to niche down and really speak to the pain points of my teacher friends wanting to turn entrepreneur.” 

Telina Too - Mentors teachers on how to set up a side hustle

Since joining IBA I added 2 clients which added an extra $2,000 to my income

“Before joining IBA I was doing a lot of guesswork with my content. IBA helped me create a super-efficient and time-saving content strategy. The content strategy sheet is mind-blowing! It’s so much more than I thought I was signing up for.”

Jasmine Masters - Life Coach

I received hundreds of DMs asking for my mentorship program

"In less than one month IBA helped me generate 1000 new followers. My engagement rate went from 1% to 3% and I received hundreds of DMS from people asking for my mentorship program.”

Truelaney Guerra - Finance Mentor

“I know that the new increase in inquiries and applications I’m receiving are a result of my content I’m putting out because they have directly told me that.” 

Sarah Holmes - Branding and website designer

Getting new inquiries every week

Many new followers and most of them are ideal clients

“What I love about IBA is the beautiful and amazing community of like minded people. The support from Laura and Ginny is invaluable and they’re always there to answer questions.”

Teodora Pile - Coach and Therapist

“Before IBA I struggled a lot with attracting my ideal clients. IBA helped me create a real content strategy and since then I have double my growth and created a community. There is only one Ginny and Laura!” 

Laurence Mahieu - Life Coach

Doubled growth since starting IBA

Now creating posts months in advance

“Before joining I was not seeing the growth or client conversion and IBA has helped in both those categories.”

Sarah King - Wellness Coach

So much clarity since starting IBA!

“If you’re looking to start your own business or pivot your current business I would definitely recommend IBA” 

Natty Lilja - Traveller Monetisation Coach

I used to work in the corporate world for many global brands such as Renault and Peugeot, I loved my job and learnt a lot of valuable marketing experience.

But I was miserable. I always hated the corporate world and the lack of freedom. I was so fed up with working to make someone else rich and constantly being told what to do.

I had always been a serial entrepreneur but had never followed through on anything properly. So when I was furloughed last year I told myself I had 12 months to create a business and quit the corporate world.  

I had zero Instagram followers in March 2020 and what felt like a mountain ahead of me.

After just 2 months of sharing value-led content on Instagram I built a coaching business where I helped others grow on Instagram and convert their followers into paying clients through high level Marketing & Sales strategies.

I was earning $10,000 a month within 5 months of coaching,
I could not believe how quickly everything snowballed. And it was all down to the content I was putting out on Instagram.


In just 9 months my following had grown to OVER 30,000 FOLLOWERS.

If I could give you one word of advice it would be to not lose sight of your end goal.  I didn’t achieve any major Instagram growth until about 6 months in!

Hey I'm Ginny...

"IBA has really helped me with my messaging and my content strategy"

Liza Leiss - Life Coach

5 New clients since starting IBA

I’m an award-winning Entrepreneur, having started The Be Group in 2012 with the belief that all individuals should be able to access personal brand development services. We have grown an impressive client list, including HSBC, Facebook, BT, American Express and Tesco to name a few.

I was a contestant on the BBC business competition, The Apprentice in 2014, becoming a finalist, enabled me to my public brand and lead to me sharing my story on a global stage.

In January 2016 I was awarded a prestigious ‘Power Profile’ from LinkedIn as one of the top 10 most powerful leaders on the website, out of 20 million UK members

"The IBA master sheet alone is worth the price of the entire course!” - Laura Chevalier 

It was SO painful at first! Obviously, none of my audience at the time cared about content strategy or hashtag research, they followed me for my lifestyle content!

So I deleted loads of inactive followers, stuck to my content strategy and slowly but surely my engagement and followers began to grow. 

And as soon as people started consuming my content I was getting DMs from people asking me to coach them. Within 5 months I was making $10,000 a month from coaching and that’s when I realised I wasn’t going back to the corporate world anytime soon. 

Now I’ve got over 50,000 Instagram followers and Elle Synergy is generating a multiple six figure income! 

My one word of advice to you if you’re thinking about IBA is to see it as an investment into your future so you can achieve your wildest dreams much quicker than you would’ve ever imagined.

I also used to work in the corporate world just like Ginny but I actually loved it! I was fairly happy and ready for an international corporate marketing career. 

But then when I was furloughed I was sort of left twiddling my thumbs and wondering what to do with myself. 

I decided to revive my dead travel and lifestyle Instagram account and start sharing marketing and Instagram advice to other aspiring entrepreneurs.

Review of Self Made - The Definitive Guide to Business Startup Success by Bianca Miller-Cole and Byron Cole

"In reading the book, I immediately warmed to it. I enjoyed the anecdotes and was able to relate to many of them, these were peppered with real life experiences and frank advice. I began to find it compelling reading, and my thoughts turned to how much I might have benefited from such a book before embarking on my career in business; I would surely have avoided some of the more common mistakes.

The book is presented in a clear, logical, and very readable format, simplifying and explaining company and business jargon. There are some really valuable nuggets to help you map out your business, address the matter of gaining access to sources of finance, building your brand and using networking to best advantage. Indeed, the book is so comprehensive and well researched that it leaves no stone unturned in its effort to live up to its title. In my opinion is does exactly what is says on the front cover!

I can now summarise my thoughts. Read the book, you won’t be disappointed."
