LOE 058 | The Accidental Skin Care Business w/ Nat Wright & Shannon Bush

Coach, Business Coach, Marketing, Magnetic Marketing, Entrepreneur | Verissima Natural Skincare

Welcome to episode 058 of Law of Effortlessness, featuring Nat Wright of Verissima Natural Skin Care.

Nat has been on a quest to find answers most of her life. Without intending to, Nat found herself as the owner and chief creator at Verissima Natural Skincare. It’s become the perfect vehicle for her to share her love of natural solutions for both our skin and our wellbeing. Verissima is all things natural, toxin and synthetic free and it’s growing community love being able to rely on the incredible, beautiful smelling products Nat provides.

Nat’s professional background includes studies within Conservation & Environmental Management and work within biosecurity and compliance with the AQIS and Quarantine WA. Nat acquired a diverse range of skills prior to leading Verissima and she has been able to use these along with an added understanding of the impacts of treating our produce with seriously toxic chemicals, to refine and offer the best natural products available.

As a busy mum of two, Nat loves spending time with family and can often be found enjoying the families’ holiday getaway. Nat is most inspired to help and educate others while also looking after the planet. She believes we have all we need in nature, but it’s a matter of harnessing and knowing what to do with what we have right on our doorstep.

Shannon and Nat discuss the abundance of nature and it’s ability to heal and nurture our body. Nat’s journey with natural skin care began when she gave birth to her first child and the range of products on offer to wash her baby with, and she began searching for a natural alternative.

Shannon and Nat explore what keeps the fire in Nat’s belly in the very busy beauty industry, and what keeps her going. You’ll hear how any business can use the word Organic in their marketing, the obstacles to being educated about the products you use on your skin, and the role of media. You’ll also hear Nat’s journey with marketing her business and owning her expertise and hard lessons learned in business.

LOE 054 | What We Hate About Business Events w/ Shannon Bush & Sarah Thomson | Effortless Business Events Takeover

Marketing, Coach, Business Coach, Business, Entrepreneur

Welcome to episode 054 of the Law of Effortlessness Podcast, this time with a twist!

Effortless Business Events is taking over the Law of Effortlessness Podcast and featuring Sarah Thomson from Online Social Butterfly (you might also remember her from episode 051). Shannon and Sarah collaborate together on Effortless Business Events, bringing small business owners in Perth an opportunity to attend quality, content focused marketing and business growth events.

In today’s episode, Shannon and Sarah talk candidly about what they both hate about other business events – what they’ve learned from workshops, conferences and master classes they have both attended over the years and how they’ve used those lessons to create Effortless Business Events and to deliver a quality experience.

Sarah Thomson established Online Social Butterfly in 2011 and offers dynamic online marketing expertise to business owners. Her most popular topics include marketing in the digital age, social media and websites.

Sarah brings with her a 15-year background in corporate marketing, spanning multi-nationals, government, not-for-profit and the small business sector in both Sydney and the UK. Her enthusiasm for the industry is currently propelling her through a Master’s degree in Web Communications.

She also finds time to run a taxi service for her sons, who are both competitive swimmers

Shannon and Sarah talk about their pet peeves with live events from great stories with no practical application, keynote speakers that are inspiring and motivating but lacking action steps, and the bad, spammy sales pitch without offering anything of value – including the time Sarah walked out of a live event.

All these lessons learned have helped Shannon and Sarah to launch and positively influence their collaboration, Effortless Business Events – making the events they offer the kind of event they have wanted to attend themselves.

You’re in for lots of wisdom and insight from these two seasoned business events and learning junkies!

LOE 032 Start Up Marketing Success with Sian Burton

LOE 032 Start Up Marketing _ Sian Burton

Join us in Episode 032 where your host Shannon Bush talks with Sian Burton from New Vision about start up marketing success. Sian talks with Shannon about how she started her own business after she left the corporate world when she became pregnant. Shannon and Sian talk through the very real fear of starting your own business; what comes up, what challenges arise and how to move through them.

If you struggle with marketing in your business then this episode is a treat for you. You know Shannon’s all about marketing, well Sian has an extensive marketing background and these ladies are on the same page with many of their beliefs, even though they work in different ways and work with different groups of business owners. As they share, marketing can be really simple if you get the fundamentals in place. Firstly, know who your clientele, customer or client is. When you are confused about who your ideal client is, the market is confused as well. And as a result, a confused mind takes no action. Shannon and Sian muse over the importance of networking and in particular meeting face to face.
