The Best Of 2016 at EVA

I say it often but I’ll say it again…I LOVE this time of year. Not only for the holidays themselves, but for two other reasons:

  1. Reflecting back on 2016. This year we learned and accomplished A LOT at EVA. I love going back and revisiting the good (and even the bad) experiences we’ve had, it’s what helps us move forward and grow.
  2. Looking forward to 2017. With the holidays comes a New Year…a time to learn from the mistakes we’ve made and improve, a time to try new things and a time to have a new set of goals to reach.

Looking back over the past year we’ve posted quite a bit of information on increasing productivity, ways to improve your business, and of course, how to work with a virtual assistant. Learning how and what to delegate, how to communicate effectively and even the types of tasks you can outsource were written from our personal experiences over the years, and we hope that they answered questions or helped resolve issues you may have had in your own business.

When it comes to hiring help for your business, regardless of the size or revenue stream you generate, having the right systems in place from the beginning really does help set you up for success.

When you’re concerned on sharing your personal information with a VA you can read Tips On Keeping Your Information Secure With A Virtual Assistant. When you don’t know how to get started or what you can delegate to a VA you can read How To Get Started Outsourcing With A Virtual Assistant.

We also offered 10 Ways To Make The Most Of Your Virtual Assistant, and for those who think they can’t afford that extra help they need, How To Afford A Virtual Assistant.

We offer this information for two reasons:

  1. It’s our business…it’s what we do and what we’re good at.
  2. We know it will help bring people and businesses to a new level.

Whether your end goal is to be more productive & efficient at work or have more of a work-life balance and time with your family…the answer is the same. Making the most of your time at work can turn a 12 hour day to an 8 hour day, so let’s make 2017 the most productive one yet.

From all of us at EVA, we wish you and your family the Happiest of Holidays, and a wonderfully successful New Year!






Alex Milaychev Coaching

We’re so excited to kick off the EVA Spotlight Series this month featuring Alex Milaychev Coaching! I had the pleasure of speaking to Alex recently and learned what a very energetic and unique coach she is, leveraging public speaking to attract and keep your client pipeline full. Read on for more information on Alex…

You know how women coaches, consultants, and gifted healers will host workshops and talks, but end up not getting enough clients? Well Alex helps them get more clients through public speaking by creating a marketing and sales strategy that feels heart-aligned and authentic.


“I like to practice breaking rules so that I always remember that my business is only limited by the rules in my mind.”

Alex is a certified coach through iPEC. She has a Cornell engineering degree, and 23 years of performance experience that she combines to help her clients with strategy as well as stage presence. She is also a 3rd generation intuitive, which she uses to help her clients learn how to tap into and channel energy archetypes while speaking in order to be magnetic.

We asked Alex for some insight on her business:

What made you get into coaching?

A long trail of breadcrumbs that started with dissatisfaction in my software career. After realizing that I didn’t want to work in software, I dove into self discovery to figure out who I was and what made me come alive. It was a slow process of discovering my truths and commitments. I let myself follow inspirations, and through that met the many mentors that would lead me into coaching and speaking.

Who is your ideal client?

You know how women coaches, consultants, and gifted healers will host workshops and talks, but end up not getting enough clients? Well I help them create a marketing and sales strategy that feels heart-aligned so that they magnetize the right clients in a way that feels authentic. I specialize in public speaking.


“I love rubbing mud on my face. It wasn’t until later that I realized this is an act of grounding. I’m pretty energetic, so now I know that I can go to the earth when I need to release.”

What type of process do you use to ensure you are a good fit for a client?

I have an application for a free consult, and then I have the duration of the consult to qualify if the person is a good fit. I like to get crystal clear on what they are looking for. If I’m not the person, I can almost always make a recommendation.

What kind of results can your clients expect to achieve?

They can expect to improve their conversion rates from their speeches and workshops. Often we have low conversion rates, or we don’t even track. I help my clients turn their workshop participants into consults with their ideal clients.

What’s your favorite part of coaching clients?

Knowing the difference I am making not only in their lives, but in the lives of all the people they will touch with their healing business. I am also an empath, and I love the emotional journey of working with different people. Through my clients I get to feel things I haven’t felt before, and that is pretty amazing.

What’s your favorite aspect of your business?

My favorite aspect of my business is 1-1 coaching.


“When I worked in software, I’d do leaps down the hallway. Now I do spins in my kitchen because I work from home!”

What’s your best piece of business advice?

You can learn to do anything. If your business isn’t doing as well as you would like, just know that it’s not you, it’s just a problem you can learn to solve.

What are some tasks you would choose to delegate?

Finances and bookkeeping.

What is the main takeaway that you want people to know about you or your business from this interview?

“From an early age I started performing in front of huge audiences, so I learned how to channel energy on stage. So when I’m up there, it’s not really me that is generating that energy, it is simply a reflection of the audience. It’s like energetic aikido.
