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

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.”

Want to know more and put yourself in the mix to be among the first 12 students of Thrive Factor School? Click below and register your interest. Download the prospectus and book your interview!

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

086 | Mentor Teacher | The Thrive Factor Book Series

The Thrive Factor Book Series Mentor Teacher Business Marketing Coach Shannon Bush Julie Gibbons Tractor Girl Sarah Thomson Online Social Butterfly Ricci Jane Adama Institute for Intuitive Intelligence Podcast

086 |The Mentor Teacher Thrive Factor

Welcome to the Law of Effortlessness Podcast with Amazon-Best-Selling Author and #businessyoda, Shannon Bush!

Today Shannon introduces you to the Mentor Teacher Thrive Factor Archetypes, strap in because Mentor Teachers have a to to say and so this episode is longer than usual!

Mentor Teachers are here on this earth to Mentor, and Teach and not just in the realms of gaining qualifications. They are always on the lookout for new things to learn in books, courses, podcasts. They are the researchers of the world and pride themselves on what they know. She has moments of being a smarty-pants, can be a bit of a know-it-all, and is incredibly wise. Often, the Mentor Teacher especially as a young woman or girl has interactions with people older than her who indicate she shouldn’t know something yet, or she is too young to know anything causing her to doubt her own knowledge and wisdom.

Shannon is joined today by three incredible Mentor Teachers, Dr. Ricci Jane Adams, Julie Gibbons and Sarah Thomson.

Dr. Ricci Jane Adama is the founder and Principal of the Institute of Intuitive Intelligence (you can find her on pages 136 and 137 of The Thrive Factor Book). Dr. Ricci Jane first met her Archetypes two years ago, describing it as a very powerful, pivotal moment for her, meeting the Liberator Engineer, Inspirer Believer, Shapeshifter Alchemist and of course, the Mentor Teacher.  Ricci shares her vision of bringing regulation to the word of Intuitive Services in the same way regulations guide Universities and schools, and meeting her Mentor Teacher gave her permission to bring her vision together, and manifest it in the real world.

Sarah Thomson from Online Social Butterfly joins Shannon, and how she first met Shannon five years ago and then began coaching with her. Sarah shares her archetypes of Mentor Teacher, Pioneer Seeker and Inspirer Believer and how during her profiling session, she cried realizing all the things she thought were her weaknesses were actually her greatest strengths. Sarah shares how she has a tough time not signing up for courses and constantly learning, especially with a fear that she does not know enough. Sarah also shares one tip that’s worked very well for her – that will with every hour of learning she has to spend two hours implementing (Find Sarah on page 135)

You’ll also hear from Julie Gibbons, former University, TAFE and High School lecturer and the owner of Tractor Girl who teachers makers and crafters to present themselves better online. Julie shares how she was in Mentor Teacher heaven by being paid to research branding, and now teaches branding. Julie chats about self-doubt being a challenge

Notable Quotes and Pearls of Wisdom

“I have to be careful because my Liberator Engineer comes in and wants to add all the new things I’ve learned and change the curriculum!” – Dr. Ricci Jane Adams

“If you don’t take the time, you won’t know what is genuinely yours.” R. Ricci Jane Adams

“Find the space that feels effortless. It’s the easiest way, find the space where you bring your Mentor Teacher to life.” – Sarah Thomson

“There are so many beautiful things in the world, my Inspirer Believer is is very happy to see them.” – Julie Gibbons

“You don’t have to know everything to be an authority, you just have to know enough.” – Julie Gibbons

085 | The Mediator Diplomat | The Thrive Factor Book Series

The Thrive Factor Book Series Shannon Bush Business Marketing Coach Shalini Nandan Adwoa Abban Nat Wright Mediator Diplomat

Meditor Diplomat Thrive Factor

Welcome to The Thrive Factor Book Series, today it’s all about the Mediator Diplomat Thrive Factor Archetype.

This lady is all about balance and will find herself often caught in the middle of a lot of things and as much as she wants to share and help people, when her advice isn’t followed it can get frustrating.

One of the greatest gifts of the Mediator Diplomat that’s often overlooked and undervalued, is that she is an amazing listener that makes those she interacts with not only feel listened too, but also heard. She’s able to see all sides of the whole and all the moving parts, which means she’s able to present different view points that doesn’t always sit well with others. Boundaries are so important for this lady, and more often than not the Mediator Diplomat tends to be a perfectionist, so please, be kind to yourself and put things out there even when they aren’t quite right.

Join Shannon for a wonderful discussion with three Mediator Diplomats, Shalini Nandan, Nat Wright and Adwoa Abban. First up, is Shalini Nandan (featured in The Thrive Factor Book) from Legally Shalini, supporting and educating women to run responsible businesses with the right legal foundations in place.  Shalini talks about the experience o embracing her archetypes from having one idea, and then recognizing that perhaps her initial perceptions needed adjusting. Shalini’s favourite super-power is her ability to listen carefully and allowing a resolution to unfold rather than pushing through and allowing solutions to present themselves.

Keep listening to hear from Nat Wright who you’ve heard previously on episode 058 of the Law of Effortlessness Podcast. Nat is the owner of Verissima Natural Skin Care, where she hand crafts all natural, beautiful skin care products toxin free. Nat discovered her archetypes in a profiling session with Shannon where she found herself nodding along, and feeling a big YES! Over time, Nat’s learned to rein in her Inspirer Believer, and to balance the Mediator Diplomat with her Mentor Teacher archetype. Nat utilizes her archetypes to be an advocate for natural, toxin free beauty products as the Mediator Diplomat and Mentor Teacher compliment each other for Nat to educate and advocate her customers. Nat reveals that she’s been challenged by infinitely high standards that hold her back for not ever having her work feeling good enough and how she’s balanced it by learning to be proud of her work and all she’s achieved, and to celebrate them.

Adwoa first met her archetypes two years ago and describes it as a confirmation of her identity, and how she is in the world. Adwoa is also an Inspirer Believer, Mentor Teacher and Shapeshifter Alchemist. Adwoa shares what she’s learned from being a Mediator Diplomat, particularly with shifting her perspective to walk in someone else’s shoes and see what life is like from another’s perspective, and requiring others to meet her halfway. Adwoa also shares the challenges she faces with having high expectations and standards, often pushing herself further without stopping, and self-doubt.

Pearls of Wisdom

“The Mediator Diplomat allows me to operate from a higher place and raises the bar for people in solving problems.” – Shalini Nandan

“Give yourself a break when it comes to your standards. It’s self-sabotage. Realize that where you’re at and what you’re doing it OK.” – Nat Wright

“Trust yourself and what you know. Be yourself at all times.” – Adwoa Abban

Welcome to another installment of the Thrive Factor Book series, with #businessyoda and two-time Amazon best-selling author Shannon Bush and her guest, Chenae Carey from Chenae Carey Coaching.

Chenae shares how everything for her began to shift when presenting in Tuscany, Italy in 2018 where she met Shannon. Chenae describes how she went from supporting women solopreneurs with Facebook Marketing to exploring fearlessness and “Tall Poppy Syndrome” and being open to the intuitive evolution that there was something more for her out there, and exploring what that just might be. Chenae shares how taking up an in-person archetype debrief opened up her understanding of being a Networker Connector. You’ll also hear Chenae chat about how her archetypes are showing up in a time of deep transformation for her personally and in her business including how she’s decided to run in-person workshops that serve her business and not just her need to spend time with others in person – and, how they intertwine closely with her other archetypes. Stay tuned to hear a little introduction to the Queen Ruler as Shannon and Chenae explore who this leading archetype is and enjoying the opulence and luxury she brings.

“Get out of your own darn way.” – Shannon

“It became really apparent why I need to do in-person events, because I’m a Network Connector.” – Chenae

“I really resonate with the others, but I always forget about my Heroine Adventurer.” – Chenae

“White space is really important for me because my energy keeps replenishing.” – Chenae

Shannon also asks about the challenges Aesha experiences, including her patience in waiting for an invitation to share her ideas rather than be the first in there and overwhelming her audience. This is exacerbated by the challenge of the Mentor Teacher, who is driven to share all her knowledge but can be overwhelmed by the sheer volume of gained learning and the desire to share great value. Aesha shares how she almost threw away her online business because it felt so hard, but meeting her archetypes supported her to embrace doing business on her own terms, in her own way that worked best for her.

You’ll also hear Aesha talk about how she never considered herself a Teacher, and it took some time for her to embrace the Mentor Teacher part of herself as coming from a deeper place inside herself. As a Mediator Diplomat Thrive Factor Archetype, Aesha also learned what this meant to her: as a balance to her creative flow, embracing and expressing self-care and nourishment of the mind, body and soul.

Aesha shares how at first, this didn’t make a lot of sense to her but once she learned more deeply about this side of herself it all clicked and she identified strongly with “The Muse.” She also began to see how this showed up for her – when she was off-balance she noticed she was usually uninspired and not her usual creative self, and so made changes to keep herself inspired and full of new ideas and creative possibilities.

This is exacerbated by the challenge of the Mentor Teacher, who is driven to share all her knowledge but can be overwhelmed by the sheer volume of gained learning and the desire to share great value. Aesha shares how she almost threw away her online business because it felt so hard, but meeting her archetypes supported her to embrace doing business on her own terms, in her own way that worked best for her.

Shannon and Aesha talk about how they met at the Artful Business Conference some years before and re-connected in 2018 in Tuscany, Italy on a retreat together during a workshop Shannon gave at the Intuition Intelligence Symposium before discussing the other Thrive Factor Archetypes present for Aesha, including the Inspirer Believer.

Aesha shares how at first, this didn’t make a lot of sense to her but once she learned more deeply about this side of herself it all clicked and she identified strongly with “The Muse.” She also began to see how this showed up for her – when she was off-balance she noticed she was usually uninspired and not her usual creative self, and so made changes to keep herself inspired and full of new ideas and creative possibilities.

You’ll also hear Aesha talk about how she never considered herself a Teacher, and it took some time for her to embrace the Mentor Teacher part of herself as coming from a deeper place inside herself.

LOE 082 | The Thrive Factor Book Series with Kerri Duff-Borthen

LOE Podcast The Thrive Factor Book Archetype Series Marketing Business Coach Shannon Bush Effortless Suzzess Zone Kerri Duff-Borthen

Podcast Episode 082 | The Thrive Factor Book Series: Be a Ninja and Love Yourself w/ Kerri Duff-Borthen

Welcome to Episode 082 of the Law of Effortlessness Podcast with your #businessyoda host, Shannon Bush! Today Shannon is joined by Kerri Duff-Borthen from The Shortlister, a recruitment platform for business owners across Australia.

Kerri met her Thrive Factor Archetypes back in 2017, as a Pioneer Seeker, Visionary Creator, Inspirer Believer, Mediator Diplomat, and a sneaky Heroine Adventurer that kept poking and prodding her way to be seen and heard. Kerri spent two years getting to know each one individually and embracing them wholeheartedly. She identifies mostly as the Pioneer Seeker and Inspirer Believer but sees how they each blend together and make up the whole of who she is (see page 205 of The Thrive Factor Book).

Kerri shares how she previously ran a more traditional recruitment agency called Duff Recruitment but found it was ‘eating her soul’ – it was then that she met Shannon and was profiled with her archetypes and began to embrace and utilize her archetypes including the Mediator Diplomat who supported her to create a process that supported both the employer and candidate beautifully through the recruitment process, and using the Visionary Creator and Pioneer Seeker to disrupt the market and pioneer a new way forward in her industry. Embracing these parts of herself had led Kerry to great success including recognition in the form of awards for her work.

But, like all archetypes there are challenges – Kerri shares how she has learned to identify when she’s out of balance, and that her biggest challenge is being hard on herself – and on the flip side, how she brings herself back into alignment when she’s having a ‘dumpy’ day.

Noteable Quotes and Pearls of Wisdom

“It can be really lonely. I tend to be two or three steps ahead of everyone because I can see where people are going and the path they’re taking. I see their potential.” – Kerri

“It can be a really fun, transparent process. It doesn’t have to be gloomy and heavy.” – Kerri

“I can be very hard on myself and quite judgemental, an overthinker and I can be harsh on others. That’s when I know I’m out of balance.” – Kerri

“Many of us are role models now. It can be tough, but often the harshness we feel is self-inflicted.” – Shannon

“Know our archetypes individually. You might identify with one or two more than the others, but get to know them well.” – Kerri

“Figure out what makes yourself shine, and do more of that.” – Kerri
