‘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.

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.

092 | Visionary Creator | The Thrive Factor Book Series

Visionary Creator LOE Podcast Business MArketing Coach Shannon Bush Emma Pointon Caroline Smith Thrive Factor Book SeriesVisionary Creator Thrive Factor

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 Visionary Creator Thrive Factor Archetype.

So, who is the Visionary Creator?

She’s able to see all that’s possible – seeing the potential that an Inspirer Believer can see in others and take it forwards into what truly is possible with clear messages and insights. One of the challenges with Visionary Creators is being able to see far, so far in advance that can send others into a state of overwhelming. Shannon shares what she has experienced in working with her clients, including how she’s used this innate talent for her own business and mindset. Shannon also shares the frustration with being patient and allowing for some parts of the vision to unfold.

We’re joined first by fellow Visionary Creator Caroline Smith from Jackadder Business Consulting. Caroline shares how she had an inkling when she was first introduced to Shannon’s work, but it wasn’t until she had a profiling session and held the Thrive Factor Book in her hands that she burst into tears and realized how powerful this side of herself truly is.

Caroline is also an Inspirer Believer, Mentor Teacher, and Mediator Diplomat. Caroline shares how she’s able to see how things can progress and be better in the long term which comes in very handy with the work she does with businesses.

We’re joined lastly by Emma Pointon – the final Thrive Factor interview, and the second Visionary Creator!

Emma first discovered her archetypes after meeting Shannon at the 2017 Artful Business Conference in Brisbane where she met Shannon and then participated in Market to Thrive (twice!) and discovered her other archetypes as Mentor Teacher, Shape Shifter Alchemist, Heroine Adventurer, and Inspirer Believer. Emma automatically wants to solve a problem when its put before her, and for a time she struggled with it being too masculine but has come to love this part of her and has set boundaries with her friends, noticing that often being able to see so far ahead caused friction.

Pearls of Wisdom

“People don’t accept that you can good at math and English and art as well.” – Caroline Smith

“The Visionary and the Creator are two parts of me that need expression.” – Caroline Smith

“Don’t ignore her, it’s amazing how much life deteriorates if you aren’t doing creative or strategic thinking.” – Caroline Smith

“I am the conduit between now and the future.” – Caroline Smith

“I’m in the intellectual space that people often pigeon me in.” – Emma Pointon

“Getting stuck in my head and it getting cluttered is a big challenge. I have to take more self- care.” – Emma Pointon

091 | Shape Shifter Alchemist | The Thrive Factor Book Series


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

088 | The Network Connector | The Thrive Factor Book Series

Business Marketing Coach Shannon Bush Law of Effortlessness Podcast Jayne Griffiths Network Connector Thrive Factor Book Perth Archetypes

Network Connector with Jayne Griffiths

In this episode, #businessyoda and Amazon-Best-Selling Author Shannon Bush is back and today discussing the Network Connector Thrive Factor Archetype!  Shannon interviews Jayne Griffiths, who identifies as a Network Connector.

Shannon starts off by describing the characteristics of a Network Connector, and gives some advice about traversing this archetype.  Jayne tells us about her business Indigo Shift and explains what she does in her work. Jayne shares how she started working with Shannon and identifies her archetypes as the Inspirer Believer, Mentor Teacher, Advocate Rescuer, Shapeshifter Alchemist, and the Network Connector, as well as some of the challenges she’s faced with them and strengths she has because of them.

Jayne tells us more about her Network Connector, and how she enjoys networking and meeting people. She finds it very easy to connect people with each other; sharing that it seems like a natural thing to her, and describes it as a ‘map in her head’. She does admit, that networking can be tiring sometimes, and that networking connections can at times be shallow. She’s now dedicated herself to smaller networking groups so that she can create long and meaningful relationships. 

Shannon gives Jayne and the rest of us some advice about being a Network Connector and assures us that not everyone is an extrovert and that’s okay. Jayne gives us some tasty tidbits of advice to help other Network Connectors through their journey! 

Pearls of Wisdom

“A Networker Connector has an incredibly wide and broad and deep network of individuals in her world, both on a personal level and a professional level” – Shannon

“I feel like I almost carry a map around in my head, about everyone I meet and how they would all link to each other, and to me that seems very natural” – Jayne

“Network connectors hover and see, scan the room, to see who’s there, to see who you know, see who you don’t know, see who you think might not know each other, and put all those pieces of the human puzzle together” – Shannon
