LOE 042 | Kickstarter Tips + Shining Your Light w/ Karen Gunton | Podcast

Podcast LOE 042 Kickstarter Tips + Shining Your Light Karen Gunton | Lighthouse Revolution Illuminate Oracle Deck | Business Coach Shannon Bush

Ever wanted to understand why Kickstarter campaigns can be so powerful and how they can help you to launch something significant in your business?

If you have, or even wondered about the power of crowdfunding in any way at all like I have, then this episode of Law Of Effortlessness Podcast with Karen Gunton is going to be a delight and inspiration to tune into.  I first came across Karen a couple of years ago in the online space, like I do many of the guests I invite onto the show.  I was immediately drawn to her strong messages of empowerment and self leadership and responsibility and intrigued by what she went on to refer to as The Lighthouse Revolution.

When she published her first book in 2016 I watched from a distance while she championed a Kickstarter campaign, her first, to support the launch of her book.  Now, she’s spreading the beams of light even brighter and is in the middle of her second Kickstarter campaign and achieving incredible success.

Having been asked many times about crowdfunding as a source to raise capitol for a business or launch and read about many success stories, I was keen to get Karen on the show to talk with her first hand about her tips and lessons for success and to find out more about the expansion of her business with the upcoming launch of her new oracle deck; Illuminate.

I have no doubt you’ll be as inspired as I was by the conversation and take a lot away from all we talk about.  There’s an abundance of practical strategies you can put into place to create more effortlessness, to shine your light, stand tall, support your mindset and be in a genuine place of service.

When there are challenges coming up, whether that be on a personal level or a business level, or both, there are often questions that arise like:

Why am I doing what I am doing?

What is this all about?

What’s the purpose of me being in business?

Am I ever going to get any results?

Am I ever going to get any return for all the effort and investment I’ve made?

There are often more questions than answers. Shannon believes business owners want to leave a legacy through their business that makes a difference for others. When you understand what sort of legacy you wish to leave through your business dream big and step outside of your comfort zone. Are you having trouble seeing your accomplishments?

Shannon asks you to consider if you have you actually accomplished and have wanted to achieve?

Take the time to give yourself a reality check about how far you have actually come.

One way you can do the reality check is to keep a gratitude journal and engage in this activity regularly.

Listen in to this episode for tips to staying motivated in your business at every stage.

LOE 034 | Perfectionism Be Gone w/ Claire Barton | Podcast

LOE 034 Perfectionism Be Gone | The Recovering Perfectionist Claire Barton | Shannon Bush Business Coach Perth

In Episode 034 of Law of Effortlessness Podcast, you host Shannon Bush, talks with Claire Barton who is a list-ticking, action-taking, colour-coding, butt-kicking, organising goddess and productivity guru who helps entrepreneurs to simplify their processes, make a plan and take real action.  Today this is all about perfectionism and how to tackle it.

Claire admits she is also a Recovering Perfectionist. Claire shares about her journey in business from where she started to where she is now. Claire and Shannon talk all about perfectionism and how the ‘Recovering Perfectionist’ came about. Claire share that you are never going to totally get rid of your perfectionism, so if this is the case, you need to find a way to be ok with being a perfectionist.

What would that look like for you in your life and business? Perhaps you could give your inner perfectionist a job to do, give her a purpose. Not everything in your life and business needs to be perfect. Sometimes the fact a job or task is done but not perfect if enough.

The ladies encourage you to focus on the celebrations in your life and business; focus on the small wins. Do you suffer from comparision-itis and let it stop you from sharing your services because there is already something similar out there? Claire and Shannon muse over comparison-itis and they pose a question of how can you refine your methodology and services to become more inspired, creative and confident to get your services out into the world?

Deliver your version, your way. Listen in, be inspired and see what you can take from this wonderful episode.
