OFFICIAL BIO

Maria Carras is the CEO & Founder of Maria Carras Creative -- a content creation & virtual assistance agency working with coaches, creatives and online educators. Her agency creates content and support systems for business leaders who crave freedom from the day-to-day running of their business, so that they can focus on making a bigger impact with their brand and message.

After 5 years living in Athens, Greece she now lives near London, England with her author & filmmaker husband and her two rambunctious little boys.

When she's not listening to podcasts or writing for clients, you'll find her reading stories to her kids, scrolling through Instagram or making herself yet another cup of (decaf) coffee -- no judging!
