Effortless Thriving with The Thrive Factor Archetypes

“I had to learn to celebrate myself and love myself a little bit.” – Jay Crisp Crow

Welcome to another episode of the Law of Effortlessness Podcast with your host and #businessyoda Shannon Bush, today joined by Jay Crisp Crow!

On today’s episode, we’re joined by copywriter and founder of the Crisp Copy Class, Jay Crisp Crow from Crisp Copy. Jay is here to share with us her experience of uncovering and meeting her Thrive Factor Archetypes. She describes the very moment in time when her results came through and she felt a strong ‘YES! this makes complete sense’ when meeting her own Mentor Teacher who now plays an important role in her business.  Jay shares how knowing her Thrive Factor gave her permission to share and give more without fear of overdoing it.  Shannon describes how she first noticed Jay’s Mentor Teacher shining through with a compassionate and generous nature, but also the challenge of not being able to share the knowledge.

You’ll hear Shannon chat about the impact of participating in Jay’s programs in the early stages and watching Jay’s journey progress into what has now become the third round of the Crisp Copy Class.

Jay is also an Advocate Rescuer and describes it as being much closer to her soul and also being over-generous. As Jay stepped into the Advocate Rescuer she learned an important lesson from Shannon: that Advocate Rescuer is a huge advocate for herself and needed to be put to work for herself first, before others. In her business, it takes the form of teaching others to use their voices and amplify them by sharing what they want and need to say and not what is ‘safe’. The Mediator Diplomat is also one of Jay’s Thrive Factor Archetypes, her daughter Ella describes this part of Jay as being the mediator and holder of all things – and the balance to the Mentor Teacher and Advocate Rescuer.

Stay tuned to hear Shannon share how these archetypes create magnetism in business from allowing yourself to use your strengths and grant yourself permission you enter The Effortless Success Zone. You’ll also hear how Shannon profiled Jay’s daughter, Ella and how it transformed their relationship. Jay shares the challenge of having a Queen Ruler daughter balancing learning and using her voice, with growing into a young woman coupled with her Visionary Creator Archetype, Ella is often impatient for life outside of high school to begin.

“You’re just learning to be you, and be more of who you are.” – Shannon

“The only thing I’ve done differently to anyone else is that I decided to embrace all of me and build my brand around that.” – Jay

“There are things that you need to let go of that aren’t your gig. They are gold, priceless! Let them go!” – Jay*

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

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.

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.

Notable Quotes and Pearls of Wisdom

“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

“Because of my Inspirer Believer, I literally believe that anything is possible.” – Chenae “For the first time in my business, I have no fear about what’s coming next. I have full belief, and that’s exciting.” – Chenae

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
