You Thriving Is My Agenda

Shannon Bush Creative Possibility | The Thrive Factor Book | Business Archetypes for women

With the recent release of my new book The Thrive Factor, writing has been something I have been doing a lot of lately. A couple of weeks back I felt compelled to share something I felt totally needed sharing. I did so in my awesome Facebook group for women in business, The Thriving Entrepreneur Circle. > you can join here if you like and read the post!

Well what I shared rang true for a lot of the Thrivers in the group and i also had a bit of a realisation. I haven’t been sharing much written work here on my blog so I am planning to do more of that moving forward. I have loads to say. Loads to share and what better place to do so in the written word that right here hey?

So between the numerous podcast episodes and sharing of the amazing business women in my community, you’ll find more mindset, money, marketing and magnetism focused articles from me.

And as I embark on a new manuscript (already underway) I’ll share how that is progressing and what it’s all about.

Stay tuned. For now, I hope what you read below inspires you to get out of your own darn way and get on with thriving.

You Thriving Is My Agenda...
It always has been!

You know what… when you get out of your own darn way and simply allow yourself to be MORE of who you are incredible things happen

when I first began pulling the pieces of the puzzle together to create what is now known as The Thrive Factor archetypal profiling framework in 2010 I had a very clear vision of my intention

I was determined to change women’s lives for the better

I wanted you to have more confidence
I wanted you to have more joy
I wanted you to know your purpose and to express it without needing permission from anyone
I wanted you to be more creative
To be more connected
I wanted you to love who you are
I wanted more curiousity, play and acceptance for you
I wanted you to connect with your innate potential and show it to the world
I wanted you to celebrate more
I wanted you to celebrate YOU more
I wanted you to know your effortless success zone and to choose to be in that space as much as you wanted and needed to
I wanted the world for you, and the stars and every cosmos beyond
I wanted friendship and connection for you
I wanted you to totally thrive

What do I want for you (and every woman in business – in fact on this planet) now?

All of the above personified. I want all of that for you but on a much bigger, bolder scale.

How can you create this and more for yourself?

Get out of your own darn way.

Choose effortlessness.

Choose to totally thrive.

Choose to discover your Thrive Factor

You do not need anyone’s permission
Make the commitment and make it happen

Big love

LOE Podcast Thrive Factor Book Series Marketing Magnetic Business Coach Perth Shannnn Bush

The Thrive Factor Book is Almost Here… and it’s Time to Meet the Archetypes!

Watch this episode as a video also and see Shannon share this awesome info here.

Welcome to a very special episode of Law of Effortlessness Podcast with #businessyoda Shannon Bush! In this special episode, Shannon shares with us the announcement of her new book, The Thrive Factor – with a juicy behind-the-scenes peek at how this book came to be!

In 2013 Shannon published her first book, The Personal Leadership Style after two and half years of research and study in psychology, transpersonal art therapy, and archetypes and the patterns of behaviors and challenges she saw in her clients – her first book introduced the world to the twelve archetypes Shannon uncovered and developed and now, The Thrive Factor Book is here and has superseded it!

The Thrive factor Book is here to help you meet different, or forgotten parts of yourself and to understand challenges and strengths – and to give you permission to own your strengths, challenges, to be more of who you are and want to be, bringing a fierce determination and confidence. Shannon has invited many of the women she has worked with over the years to share their experience of working with their archetypes and the difference it’s made in their lives and businesses – over 48 women sent in their stories and is featured in the book – and you’ll hear from some of them soon.

After publishing the high-level first book, The Thrive Factor is a very in-depth look at each of these archetypes and how they interact with your Effortless Success Zone, focusing on your personal magnetism and inspiration which filter into your business – how people are drawn to you and inspired by you – a little different for each archetype!

Shannon shares how growing up, she realized that in spite of being told to work hard and put in lots of effort for success, she found it difficult and the hard, overwhelming work prevented the beliefs, mindset, and creation of our unique effortless success zone: enter, the beginnings of what Shannon stands for. Standing up for your strengths, acknowledging your challenges, choosing effortlessness – because when you give yourself permission to be in your effortless success zone, even when you do have days where things get de-railed you will have the resilience to “bounce forward.”

Stay tuned to hear an introduction to the twelve Archetypes:

  • Advocate Rescuer
  • Heroine Adventurer
  • Inspirer Believer
  • Liberator Engineer
  • Mediator Diplomat
  • Mentor Teacher
  • Mother Nurturer
  • Networker Connector
  • Pioneer Seeker
  • Queen Ruler
  • Shapeshifter Alchemist
  • Visionary Creator

LOE 076 | Effortless Business and Health w/ Kat Blake


LOE Podcast Perth Business Marketing Coach Shannon Bush Kat Blake LOE Podcast

Episode 076 Effortless Business and Health with Kat Blake, Invigorate Naturopathy

How do you beat the stress and overwhelm of running your own business? We’ve all been there, worrying if we have enough income to pay our bills, clients rescheduling appointments – so, how do we manage that level of constant stress and create our own effortless business?

Join Shannon as she chats with Naturopath, Kat Blake about how she grew her business, implemented a leveraged business model which allowed her to enjoy effortless business, and her best tips for managing stress, fatigue, and anxiety in business.

Kat shares her fears about becoming a full-time business owner from deciding when it was the right time if she had enough money to support it and a strong client flow – and discovered the niche she most enjoyed working with. You’ll hear Shannon and Kat talk about how Kat began to move into a more leveraged business model by hosting events, and the challenges and celebrations that followed from choosing presenters wisely, and getting feedback from attendees on the topics they were interested in, and acting on it to include those topics more specifically at future events.

Shannon and Kat share candidly the challenges of running events from Kat’s struggle with technology and presentation slides that didn’t work, and only allowing four weeks to market the event. Shannon asks Kat how she held it together and kept calm on the day of the event, and you’ll hear Kat’s tips including meditation to calm her breathing and heart rate, and coming from a place of gratitude.

Join Shannon and Kat for a discussion on what makes Naturopathy different from visiting your GP, and how she handles skeptical clients, and how Kat manages to check in with all her clients (including automated emails!). You’ll also get to hear Kat share some excellent tips on managing stress, overwhelm, and anxiety when running a business including:

  • Slowing down – eat mindfully, sit down and slowly eat your lunch.
  • Meditation which will support your mind health, once or twice per week
  • Move the body – go for a walk around the block, move your body

Notable Quotes and Pearls of Wisdom

“Once I niched, I knew what I was saying and it was much easier to market myself to them.” – Kat Blake

“It’s important to choose your team wisely. Just because someone is also a Naturopath, doesn’t mean we are focussing on the same thing and we compliment each other nicely.” – Kat Blake

“More of us should celebrate saying NO. It’s not always a right fit.”  – Shannon Bush

“Remember why you started your Naturopathic business.” – Kat Blake
