Effortless Thriving with The Thrive Factor Archetypes

“I had to learn to celebrate myself and love myself a little bit.” – Jay Crisp Crow

Welcome to another episode of the Law of Effortlessness Podcast with your host and #businessyoda Shannon Bush, today joined by Jay Crisp Crow!

On today’s episode, we’re joined by copywriter and founder of the Crisp Copy Class, Jay Crisp Crow from Crisp Copy. Jay is here to share with us her experience of uncovering and meeting her Thrive Factor Archetypes. She describes the very moment in time when her results came through and she felt a strong ‘YES! this makes complete sense’ when meeting her own Mentor Teacher who now plays an important role in her business.  Jay shares how knowing her Thrive Factor gave her permission to share and give more without fear of overdoing it.  Shannon describes how she first noticed Jay’s Mentor Teacher shining through with a compassionate and generous nature, but also the challenge of not being able to share the knowledge.

You’ll hear Shannon chat about the impact of participating in Jay’s programs in the early stages and watching Jay’s journey progress into what has now become the third round of the Crisp Copy Class.

Jay is also an Advocate Rescuer and describes it as being much closer to her soul and also being over-generous. As Jay stepped into the Advocate Rescuer she learned an important lesson from Shannon: that Advocate Rescuer is a huge advocate for herself and needed to be put to work for herself first, before others. In her business, it takes the form of teaching others to use their voices and amplify them by sharing what they want and need to say and not what is ‘safe’. The Mediator Diplomat is also one of Jay’s Thrive Factor Archetypes, her daughter Ella describes this part of Jay as being the mediator and holder of all things – and the balance to the Mentor Teacher and Advocate Rescuer.

Stay tuned to hear Shannon share how these archetypes create magnetism in business from allowing yourself to use your strengths and grant yourself permission you enter The Effortless Success Zone. You’ll also hear how Shannon profiled Jay’s daughter, Ella and how it transformed their relationship. Jay shares the challenge of having a Queen Ruler daughter balancing learning and using her voice, with growing into a young woman coupled with her Visionary Creator Archetype, Ella is often impatient for life outside of high school to begin.

“The only thing I’ve done differently to anyone else is that I decided to embrace all of me and build my brand around that.” – Jay

“There are things that you need to let go of that aren’t your gig. They are gold, priceless! Let them go!” – Jay*

Shape Shifter Alchemist Mentor Teacher Inspirer Believer Nicole Bathurst Business Marketing Coach Shannon Bush LOE Podcast

‘The Shape Shifter Alchemist encompasses so much. She is the chameleon.’ – Shannon Bush

Welcome to another episode of the Law of Effortlessness Podcast with your #businessyoda Shannon Bush. Today Shannon is joined by Nicole Bathurst from Naturally Nic, a Dietician supporting Breast Cancer Survivors.  

Shannon connected with Nicola two years ago, when Nic was uncovering her niche and strengths. Shannon profiled Nic as an  Inspirer Believer, Mentor Teacher, and Shape Shifter Alchemist, a perfect mix for the work Nicola does as a Dietician working with survivors of cancer blending beautifully with her Wise Guide Shape Shifter Alchemist, bringing fun and joy to a very serious conversation. Nicole shares what it was like  to learn what her archetypes, and that she struggled with the Shape Shifter Alchemist initially – as many women do with the ‘bigness’ of all it encompasses but since then, Nic has slowly begun to embrace her Thrive Factor Archetypes, relaxing into them more although it is still a conscious exercise in allowing.

Shannon and Nicole chat about how embracing her Mentor Teacher, truly is Nicole’s effortless success zone and how easy and enjoyable her work can be. You’ll also hear Shannon and Nicole talk about the all too common issues around visibility for the Shape Shifter Alchemist and how she challenged herself to do a Facebook Live Video every day for a month and finding her sweet spot with being on live video and now having a system that works effortlessly for her producing and sharing her own content.  

Pearls of Wisdom

“I don’t even realize I’m inspiring. I’m not doing anything different.” – Nicole Bathurst

“We have to remember that not everybody knows everything we know and that we can’t take this for granted.” – Nicole Bathurst

“You’re not paying me for the 60 minutes I spend with you. You’re paying for the thirty years of extensive study and training I’ve done to spend this 60 minutes with you.” -Nicole Bathurst

Law of Effortlessness The Thrive Factor Book Series Shape Shifter Alchemist Kat Blake Christina Cabrera Shannon Bush

Shape Shifter Alchemist Thrive Factor Archetype

Welcome to Law of Effortlessness Podcast with your Amazon-Best-Selling-Author and #businessyoda in chief, Shannon Bush who today, will introduce you to the Shape Shifter Alchemist Thrive Factor Archetype.

The Shape Shifter Alchemist is a chameleon among the Thrive Factor Archetypes. She’s versatile and able to shift into and out of many things, but this ability comes with challenges! She is a woman of magic and mystery, and while she’s able to go with the flow, she can struggle to know who she is in the world. In the business world she can show many versions of herself, or alternatively in business can sabotage herself and go into hiding. She’s magnetic and fascinating to others, but when the Shape Shifter is uncertain in who she is mistrust can build and be pulled away.

Shannon is talking today to Shape Shifter Alchemist Christina Cabrera from Wisdom of Wealth. Christina first met Liberator Engineer, Visionary Creator, Mediator Diplomat, and Inspirer Believer back in September 2015. Christina shares how she’s somehow able to create magic or something out the ordinary that wows people and leaves them asking, ‘how did you do that?!’ she also shares a deeply hidden part of her that felt she couldn’t say that things came easily to her, and conversely how she easily can sabotage herself especially with technology. You’ll also hear the joy that being a Shape Shifter Alchemist brings in her playfulness, and ability to take easily to the stage.

Kat Blake from Invigorate Natural Therapy joins the conversation with #businessyoda Shannon Bush to talk all about her experiences of discovering her Shape Shifter Alchemist during the course of Shannon’s program Market to Thrive. Kat is also an Inspirer Believer, Liberator Engineer, and an Advocate Rescuer with a sprinkling of the Heroine Adventurer.

Kat and Shannon share the key moment when Kat first recognized the power of her ability to manifest with the ability to manifest things so easily like clients. On the flip side, Kat shares how sensitive the Universe seems to be to her thoughts and actions and what manifests as a result.

Pearls of Wisdom

“Shape Shifters are magnetic and magical, women of mystery and for that reason pull people in. But if uncertain in who she is, she is ungrounded and others a pulled away.” – Shannon Bush

“I can manifest anything I want to.” – Christina Cabrera

“Make friends with your Archetypes and learn to listen to them. They will speak loudly and that’s your queue.” – Christina Cabrera

“It’s not personal when someone reschedules with me, that was a big thing to learn.” – Kat Blake

“Mind your thoughts and what your putting out there because it will manifest” – Kat Blake

090 | Queen Ruler | The Thrive Factor Book Series

The Thrive Factor Book Series LOE Podcast Business Marketing Coach Shannon Bush Liesel Albrecht Karen Dauncey Swapna Thomas

Queen Ruler Thrive Factor Archetype

Welcome to Law of Effortlessness Podcast with your Amazon-Best-Selling-Author and #businessyoda in chief, Shannon Bush who today, will introduce you to the Queen Ruler Thrive Factor Archetype.

We begin this podcast by exploring who the Queen Ruler is – a woman with a regal presence. This woman loves the finer things in life, and enjoys beautifully designed things in their life. If you’ve ever purchased anything from a Queen Ruler, you might have noticed how high-quality the experience is! Queen Rulers often make decisions free from emotion,  a unique trait among the Thrive Factor Archetypes, and they are strong characters.

We first meet Karen Dauncey from Blue Cherry, a service that helps businesses get found online. Karen tells us how she felt an immediate kinship to her Queen Ruler meeting her first two years ago. Karen is also an Inspirer Believer and a Mediator Diplomat. Karen shares the strengths she has as a Queen Ruler, like making hard decisions in business that aren’t affected by emotion enabling her to make the changes she’s needed to. Karen also shares another strength in being able to easily delegate things.

We’re joined next by Liesel Albrecht from Retreats at Resorts. Liesel first met her Queen Ruler with a sigh of relief and excitement three years ago. Liesel also identifies as a Mentor Teacher, Inspirer Believer, and Shape Shifter Alchemist – which Liesel loves the balance each bring to the table. Liesel shares great insight about when things feel like the wheels are coming off, to use the mantra “it’s ok. I’m building an Empire.” That has supported her through tough business moments.

We’re joined lastly by Swapna Thomas. Swapna works with rebels to embrace and work in their zone of expertise. Swapna first met Shannon four years ago, connecting in the online business world. Swapna is also a Mentor Teacher and Liberator Engineer – her thirst for knowledge is ‘very real’ indeed with these archetypes!

At first, Swapna was not prepared to be a Queen Ruler and denied it – she rebelled against the idea of a dark queen and the shadow side but as she learned more and more she began to embrace her shadow side. Swapna struggled with the idea of being a Queen, who was she to rule others? Swapna had to learn to own her value and worth and has since gone on the support her clients do the very same thing. Swapna shares the challenges – from feeling threatened by others ‘vying for the throne’.

Pearls of Wisdom

“Queen Rulers are here for big things, but often have doubts about if they have what it takes.” – Shannon Bush

“Wear your crown and own it. Step out, and rule.” – Karen Dauncey

“Not every Queen is an Evil Queen like in Snow White.” Liesel Albrecht

“This is about generous leadership, the positive ramifications and ripple effect.” – Shannon Bush

“When I started to leverage it, and lean into it that’s when it really changed the game.” – Swapna Thomas

089 | Pioneer Seeker w/ Elle Roberts & Ashleigh Rae | The Thrive Factor Book Series

The Thrive Factor Book Series Law of Effortlessness Podcast Elle Roberts Ashleigh Rae Shannon Bush Pioneer Seeker Effortless Success Zone Thriving Entrepreneur

Pioneer Seeker Thrive Factor Archetype

Welcome to the Law of Effortlessness Podcast with your #businessyoda host, Shannon Bush today joined by two cheeky and pioneering women, Elle Roberts and Ashleigh Rae. In this episode, Shannon Bush speaks with Elle Roberts and Ashleigh about the Pioneer Seeker Thrive Factor Archetype. This lady is the early adopter of new ideas and technology and is constantly innovating. She is also cheeky and playful and others can find it difficult to keep up with her. 

Elle starts off the episode with some information about herself and her business, and how its evolved. Elle identifies when she learned about her archetypes and lists them as Mentor Teacher, Inspirer Believer, Liberator Engineer, Shapeshifter Alchemist, and Pioneer Seeker. She shares with us how she felt when she learned what her archetypes were, and how learning them clarified some things about herself.

Elle talks about how difficult it was starting her business as a single mom, and how shy she was about it starting out. She explains how she had to learn the aspects of a business that she didn’t know, and how she reached out to others to join her in her business. Elle shares with us the disadvantages and challenges of being a Pioneer Seeker, and how she wants to learn and try everything. Elle imparts some words of wisdom on us about being a Pioneer Seeker, and how it shapes you.

In part two of this episode, you’ll hear from Ashleigh Rae, her business and how she first came to meet her Pioneer Seeker Archetype in early 2018, along with her other two Thrive Factor Archetypes – the Inspirer Believer and Shape Shifter Alchemist. You’ll hear how at first, Ashleigh didn’t know what to do with the knowledge of her archetypes, and how she didn’t love them or interact with them – and then how she began to embrace them.

She identifies which archetype she has had the most trouble with, and talks about the challenges that each archetype brings into her life. Ashleigh Rae also talks about how her archetypes have helped her, both in her business life and in her personal life. She mentions other personality tests she’s done before, and how she felt like they never really fit her. She identifies the weaknesses of other personality tests and emphasizes how strong the archetype test is and how she uses it to profile her clients.

The episode ends with Ashleigh giving advice for those who share her archetypes, and giving words of encouragement. To hear Ashleigh’s advice, tune in to this episode! And if you’re curious about your archetypes, check out Shannon Bush’s The Thrive Factor Book!

Pearls of Wisdom 

“I’m a huge ideas person, and it took me a long time to wrap my head around this. I had to learn it’s OK to embrace and hug the Bright Shiny Objects.” – Ashleigh Rae

“Your archetypes are a filter to guide you in how you want to show up, and what you want to do” – Shannon Bush

“I often feel like how come there are not more people standing right here with me, and learning about that Pioneer Seeker and that adventurous, you know, just keep going doing the next new thing, was like oh, that’s why it feels like there’s no one next to me. It’s not that nobody wants to be my friend, it’s that I’m in this different space” – Elle Roberts

Thrive Factor School – A Letter and an Invitation

Thrive Factor School | Archetype Profiling Training | Certification Program | Business Women | Coaching Training | Personality Profile Training

Is it time to add a new dimension to your business?
A letter from me to you...

Dearest wise one

Thank you for taking the time to read as I share with you some of what I’ve been dreaming about – something that comes to life as Thrive Factor School. Before I do that I need to let you know I have been waiting patiently for years to be able to share this with you. I have dreamed about you so often and spent countless hours imagining what the future will hold with you, out there in the world, sharing the Thrive Factor with other women like yourself.

I know you’re a fiercely determined woman with a big heart. You have a huge desire to be a vehicle for change in the world. These are some of the many reasons you started your business – to make changes and to do so with heart.

Perhaps your vision was to change your life or those of your clients.
Perhaps it was to change your community, your country or even the world at large.

The size and reach of your desire is not what matters to me. How big or bold your dreams are do not matter. Your commitment to bringing your dreams to life and to be the change you desire to be is what matters. It is no small thing to change someones life or business for the better, but that is what you already do. And you’re ready for more.

Here is a little more I know about youyou know a lot – you are a smart, capable individual and you love to learn and share what you know

>> you’re optimistic and realistic all at the same time

>> you see the good in other people and you love it when they see what is possible too

>> you are generous and kind – because you care about people

>> you are a delightful person to be around and even on your grumpy days others value your integrity and genuine approach, plus all that wisdom you’ve got in spades

>> you are also loved for the willingness you have to champion the people you believe in

>> you adore your business and even on the toughest of days you couldn’t imagine throwing it all in because the alternative isn’t worth considering

>> you have an existing engaged community of loyal people who value you and find inspiration and motivation in the way you show up and deliver ALL of you in your work

In fact there are so many glorious things to say about you, but because you’re so humble and not one to tall poppy yourself, you’d rather focus on sharing the limelight with others.

Thrive Factor Invitation Letter | Archetypal Profile Training | Archetype Training Certification | Shannon Bush | Creative Possibility | Women in business

Thrive Factor School could be the missing link in your business! Ready to totally thrive?

But…

isn’t there always a but?

You feel completely ready to add a new dimension to your business and have either been searching for something, or trusting the “right” opportunity would come your way.

Awesome! I’ve got something for you.

If you’ve been a part of the Creative Possibility world for some time you probably know about the Thrive Factor Archetypal Framework. It is the “thing” that has been a constant in my business for years and the “thing” that has been the foundation for significant positive personal and business transformation for hundreds of women.

I’m honoured, excited, emotional even… to bring you an inspiring learning opportunity that is a first! (sound intriguing Inspirer Believers? Pioneer Seekers? Visionary Creators? Mentor Teachers?)

Starting June this year an inaugural group of women will join me for a 6 month foundational program to learn the art of profiling, the Thrive Factor way. It’s what Thrive Factor School is all about.

So if you are leading a business currently and looking to add something new to your work, then you can grab a copy of the student prospectus for Thrive Factor School below. Once you have it you’ll receive all you need to evaluate this opportunity and to secure an application interview during the application window from now until 10th May only.

I’ve already met with a few of the applicants and lets just say I couldn’t be happier – some know my work well and to others it is relatively new. Each has shared in their application form (yes, there’s an extensive but easy to complete form to book your interview!) their beautiful and inspired visions for weaving Thrive Factor profiling into their businesses. I’m not one to cry that often but some of what I’ve read has led to a few happy tears, particularly as I’ve read about their personal transformations and positive differences to their lives and businesses for knowing their Thrive Factor archetypes. My favourites have been along the lines of “knowing this information has changed my life and business for the better and I cannot wait to share this gift with other women.”

087 | Mother Nurturer | The Thrive Factor Book Series

The Thrive Factor Book Series Shannon Bush Law of Effortlessness Podcast Mother Nurturer Thrive Factor Archetypes Business Marketing Coach Perth

Mother Nurturer Thrive Factor 

Welcome to episode 87 of the Law of Effortlessness, with your Amazon Best Selling Author and #businessyoda Shannon Bush. In this solo episode, Shannon talks to us about the Mother Nurturer Archetype and how the archetype is not necessarily about being a literal mother of children-its about nourishing and nurturing those she considers to be her family. Mother Nurturers love to feed their family and will endeavor to make everyone feel loved and cared for, welcoming people into her fold like they are family.Mother Nurturers, remember though your greatest treasure and lessons are in self-nourishment.

Today Shannon is joined by two guests, Lyn Uniewicz from The Gifting Pot (all about giving!) and Tracy O’Meara Smith a Bowen Therapist from Silverdale.

In the first interview, Lyn shares her business, the Gifting Pot, a boutique gifting business. Sharing how she met Shannon through a friend, and how she did her archetype profile with Shannon. She identifies the four archetype that she identifies with Queen Ruler, Inspirer Believer, Mother Nurturer, and the Mediator Diplomat. Lynn tells us how she felt when she learned about her Mother Nurturer Archetype and identifies the strengths that come with being a Mother Nurturer, as well as some of the challenges.

We’re joined by Bowen Therapist Tracey O’Meara Smith from Silverdale in part two of this episode, who identifies as a Mother Nurturer, Inspirer Believer, Shape Shift Alchemist and Advocate Rescuer. Tracey shares how liberating it was to embrace the wisdom of her Mother Nurturer and allow this side herself to come to the fore. Tracey shares how she fat out rejected the Mother Nurturer initially but came to see the bigger picture and how shehe needed to come into her own authenticity and voice. Shannon asks Tracey how this shows up in her business, and Tracey shares how she had to learn that not everyone is ready for everything you have to give, andthat having a level of detachment from what happens in her therapy room is never about her personally, but about someone else and gives her clients the room to find and spread their own wings.

Pearls of Wisdom

“Mother Nurturers, the greatest gift you can give yourself is to let yourself nurture you”-Shannon

“I used to feel very guilty about looking after myself first and then looking after others”-Lyn

“I’ve learned in the last twelve months to back off when I need to back off. They know I’m there when they need me, and when they do need me I’m there one hundred percent”-Lyn

“You realize that even though you have the grander vision, its what you integrate and learn along the way.”-Tracey

“I had to understand my own depths…and accept myself for who I am.”-Tracey“Nothing is better than a Mothers love.”-Tracey
