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

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!

I cannot wait to introduce you to the Thrive Factor School students – the future of permission activation and totally thriving! Will your name be on the Thrive Factor School list?

Thrive Factor School application window open until 10th May 2019 for a June class start! Learn more here

084 | Intuitive Evolution with The Thrive Factor Archetypes w/ Chenae Carey

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.

Shannon brings you this interview to open up the possibility of what working with your own Thrive Factor Archetypes can look like when applied to your business and today, you’ll hear Chenae talk about the big changes and small she’s made as a result of the intuitive evolution that embracing her own Archetypes of the Inspirer Believer, Liberator Engineer, Heroine Adventurer, Networker Connector and a fifth, although not the most dominant, Queen Ruler.

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

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.

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

The Thrive Factor Book Launch is happening soon!

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

Super excited to let you know about something very cool that is happening very soon. In fact in the next week or two…

My new book is launching!

After what seems like forever, this book is finally coming to life and the date my team and I are working towards is a Kindle launch for end of January 2019 swiftly followed by the launch of the paperback version.

The best way to be the first to hear how you can get your copy is to register your interest at www.thethrivefactorbook.com.au. We will send an email out as soon as we have more information, which should be very soon.

What’s the book about?  Well if you have followed me for any length of time you will know about the archetypal personal leadership framework I created in 2010 and 2011. It was featured in my Amazon best selling book in 2013, Personal Leadership Style.

Back then I was working with the archetypes with my female clients and focusing on their personal attributes, strengths and challenges. However I was nearly solely working with women in business and so began to map the things I was seeing repeated for each archetype in relation to mindset, marketing, money and magnetism. The information was consistently well received when I shared it with clients and participants in programs like Market To Thrive.

So in 2017 I began taking the dream of writing a new book and started to put the words together. It’s been a mamoth task that has involved many people and it is now so close to being no longer a dream, but a reality.

Over the last couple of years my fascination with thriving has also evolved and deepened/ It seemed only right to me to review what the framework was previously christened. So the archetypes are now referred to as the Thrive Factor Archetypes and this new book is all about you, as a business woman, getting to know yourself, unlocking your effortless success zone and totally thriving.

Cannot wait to hear what you think about it when you get to read it.

For now, though, head to www.thethrivefactorbook.com.au and register your interest.

Let’s get excited about thriving! Totally thriving!

Creating Brand Voice | Another Effortless Business Events Take Over w/  Shannon Bush and Sarah Thomson

Shannon and Sarah are back with another installment of Effortless Business Events take-over of the LOE Podcast, talking on this episode all about your brand voice.

Shannon and Sarah reassure us that we do not have to be singers in our business, to have a consistent and authentic brand voice – but we do need to be aware of what it is, as part of our branding identity. Sarah offers a great example of how tone and voice changes depending on the audience with her academic writing, compared to her less formal, business blogs and presentations – taking into consideration the expectations of the audience, and the goal of the communication. Shannon and Sarah also discuss how our personal brand voice changes when we talk to colleagues, children, and how our brand voice is a reflection of who we are at our most authentic, in slightly different iterations.

Is it time for a Branding Health Check?

Shannon shares how this also applies to employees in your business, or if you have anyone who represents your business in any way and how applying guidelines and boundaries will assist your employees (virtual or otherwise) to ensure that your brand voice is consistent, genuine and authentic.

As always, Shannon and Sarah share their best simple, effortless and practical tips to support your brand voice is consistent, genuine and authentic by asking your target market for their input (and who not to ask for feedback) and knowing what impact you want to have with your brand.

Notable Quotes & Pearls Of Wisdom

“Your tone and voice are what you communicate to your audience that is not the actual words that come out of your mouth.”

“Your tone and voice must be genuine, consistent and authentic.”

“We underestimate how much things can evolve and change in just six months.”
