The Funnel Queen’s Success Story: Alignment over Burnout

Erial Wheeler as nicknamed The Funnel Queen is known for creating high-converting funnels that’s inspired by her vision which is to create a business that is nourishing, safe, and loving.

She’s a true “Funnel Queen” with 25 years of experience in the field.

Erial’s journey began as a virtual assistant, successfully transitioning into a business owner committed to providing a nurturing and secure environment for her clients. Her approach to creating funnels involves modifying them to meet each client’s specific needs, as she firmly believes,

No funnel is the same, each has its vibe, its culture, its unique specialness.”

Alignment is the Key

Erial’s first experience with a VA was a real eye-opener for her. It made her realise just how important alignment is. Sometimes things just don’t click, but when they do, it’s like witnessing a little bit of magic. Even after going through a burnout, Erial decided to take a bold leap of faith, and found alignment with the EVS team.

According to her, the most significant turning point happened when she brought a VA on board. Surprisingly, her business tripled within just a few months of her VA joining the team.

That’s the cool thing about alignment – when everything lines up, great things happen. When two people are on the same page, amazing things are bound to occur.

What's holding you back from hiring a Virtual Assistant?

Virtual assistants are here to make your life easier and give your business the SUPPORT it needs. You don’t have to juggle everything on your own. Delegate tasks when necessary – it’s a total game-changer. Burning out is not an option, especially for business owners. With VAs, you can focus on the tasks that bring you joy and balance without sacrificing precious time with your family.

Following Erial’s advice, start with the tasks that fill your cup, and tackle those first.

When your cup is full, you’ll have the energy to do what you love for yourself and others.

The ART of Delegating

Here’s Erial’s take on delegating – start with what genuinely makes you happy. Figure out which tasks fill your cup with positivity and satisfaction, allowing you to share that positivity with others. Delegating is more than just an everyday task; it’s a skill that many business owners and entrepreneurs struggle with. Working effectively with a VA requires the ability to hand over tasks like a pro.

Erial improved her delegation skills, making it easier to sync with her VA and transition smoothly. If something drains your energy, don’t hesitate to delegate it!

What is a VA's Day in a Life like?

Virtual Assistants are trained to handle administrative tasks, customer service, and social media duties. At EVS, we provide our VAs with one week of self-paced training and three weeks of intensive training in areas like admin, customer service, and social media. By combining our training with your guidance, we create an environment that encourages efficient work.

Team meetings are an essential part of Erial’s work culture, she conducts a meeting every week to keep everyone aligned and motivated. She also added that open communication also helps everyone accountable and ensures that everyone is working towards a common goal.

Leap to Clarity

Here’s the thing, when you work on something without support, you’re destined to fall into burning out and that’s a common thing. Business owners and entrepreneurs are too independent and self-reliant that they fail to look for support. Erial has her fair share of that and it was an eye opening experiencing for her. She worked on her balance and find clarity because of that. Once you figure that out just like Erial did eventually everything just falls into place.

Taking a leap of faith is a bold move – YES! But nothing’s going to happen if you don’t take action. You’ll be in the same spot as before if you don’t walk the talk. Erial realized that and she took her time. As she said” ride the wave until you find clarity you’re looking for and she did.

Pushing vs. Taking the Leap: How to distinguish?

Erial suggests that it’s all about trusting your GUT. She advises you to dig deep and ask yourself some important questions. Be honest with yourself when you answer, and you’ll find the answers deep within. Remember, only you truly know what’s best for you. It’s completely normal for us to want things to feel safe before we make big decisions, and that’s okay.

Trusting your instincts is a basic life skill. Entrepreneurs, business owners, architects, lawyer – all have to rely on their instincts. As you learn to develop this skill, the more clarity you have on who you want to be.

When Erial made those leaps, she realized the sacrifices she needed to make and what was expected of her to grow to scale her business to the next level. So, are you ready to scale your business to the next level?

Take that big leap and grow your business!

Scaling without Burnout

Scaling a business without burning out is TOTALLY DOABLE! Erial is an excellent example of this since she has firsthand experience. So, here’s the question: How did Erial manage to get through it?

The answer is a VIRTUAL ASSISTANT.

Yes, she scaled her business by bringing a VA on board, but there’s even more to it – she got to enjoy her FREE TIME. Why waste your time doing tasks that can be delegated to your VA? The best part? It doesn’t have to cost you much. By freeing up your time, you’re not only helping yourself but also assisting another family in providing for their necessities.

The key to scaling without burnout lies in smart strategies and careful planning. You don’t have to work yourself into the ground to achieve your

business goals. Instead, it’s about DELEGATING and COMMUNICATING with your VA.

Trusting your VA and passing on tasks can relieve the pressure on your shoulders. This way, you can focus on other pressing concerns while your team handles the day-to-day operations.

Another important factor is COMMUNICATION. It promotes accountability and helps the team stay focused. It’s vital to understand that scaling your business is a MARATHON, not a sprint. So, enjoy the journey, not just the destination. Embrace growth with grace, and you’ll find that it’s possible to scale your business without losing your passion, drive, or sanity.

Hiring a VA isn’t just a decision that could be made; it’s a decision that MUST be made. The more you delegate, the more you can FILL YOUR CUP. And the more you fill your cup, the more people you can help. Erial is one of the many business owners who can vouch for the fact that SCALING WITHOUT BURNOUT is entirely achievable with a VA.
