094 | Become More Visible w/ Nicole Bathurst | The Thrive Factor Book Series

Shape Shifter Alchemist Mentor Teacher Inspirer Believer Nicole Bathurst Business Marketing Coach Shannon Bush LOE Podcast

‘The Shape Shifter Alchemist encompasses so much. She is the chameleon.’ – Shannon Bush

Welcome to another episode of the Law of Effortlessness Podcast with your #businessyoda Shannon Bush. Today Shannon is joined by Nicole Bathurst from Naturally Nic, a Dietician supporting Breast Cancer Survivors.  

Shannon connected with Nicola two years ago, when Nic was uncovering her niche and strengths. Shannon profiled Nic as an  Inspirer Believer, Mentor Teacher, and Shape Shifter Alchemist, a perfect mix for the work Nicola does as a Dietician working with survivors of cancer blending beautifully with her Wise Guide Shape Shifter Alchemist, bringing fun and joy to a very serious conversation. Nicole shares what it was like  to learn what her archetypes, and that she struggled with the Shape Shifter Alchemist initially – as many women do with the ‘bigness’ of all it encompasses but since then, Nic has slowly begun to embrace her Thrive Factor Archetypes, relaxing into them more although it is still a conscious exercise in allowing.

Shannon and Nicole chat about how embracing her Mentor Teacher, truly is Nicole’s effortless success zone and how easy and enjoyable her work can be. You’ll also hear Shannon and Nicole talk about the all too common issues around visibility for the Shape Shifter Alchemist and how she challenged herself to do a Facebook Live Video every day for a month and finding her sweet spot with being on live video and now having a system that works effortlessly for her producing and sharing her own content.  

Pearls of Wisdom

“I don’t even realize I’m inspiring. I’m not doing anything different.” – Nicole Bathurst

“We have to remember that not everybody knows everything we know and that we can’t take this for granted.” – Nicole Bathurst

“You’re not paying me for the 60 minutes I spend with you. You’re paying for the thirty years of extensive study and training I’ve done to spend this 60 minutes with you.” -Nicole Bathurst

Chenae shares how everything for her began to shift when presenting in Tuscany, Italy in 2018 where she met Shannon.

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.

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 080 | Inspirer Believer | The Thrive Factor Book Series

Inspirer Believer Archetypes The Thrive Factor Book Coach Mentor Shannon Bush Perth

Meet the Inspirer Believer

Watch the Video Interviews here

Welcome to episode 080, and the third Archetype the Inspirer Believer with your #businessyoda and now Amazon #1 Bestselling Author for the second time with a solo book – The Thrive Factor, Shannon Bush!

The Thrive Factor features 12 personal leadership Archetypes for women in business. Today we meet the Inspirer Believer, you know her as the cheerleader and champion of optimism. She throws herself into things she is passionate about but can become burned out quickly. Her greatest lesson is to be inspired by herself and to share that with the world. Join Shannon as she chats with three very real Inspirer Believers – Sheryl, Kimberly and Pavitra.

You’ll hear how Kimberlie has been inspired many times and is now onto her fifth business iteration which began with Tai Chi and is now in textiles. Kimberlie shares how one of her greatest joys with this archetype, is championing and cheerleading her mentees in her work, and being able to see the potential in others. On the flip side, you’ll also hear the challenges she faced in not being able to take off her rose-coloured glasses.

Stay tuned to hear from Transition Mentor, Pavitra who describes the transformation and clarity that discovering her archetypes as overly joyous, and how she has fully embraced this aspect of herself to believe in the unknown more than what is known and in surrendering to the flow of life and creating from there. Pavitra also shares her challenges – acknowledging how easy it is for her to be inspired and to inspire others, and not having healthy boundaries to support it. Pavitra also shares how she is challenged by the logical mind trying to fathom many of the qualities, ideas and creativity of the Inspirer Believer as they are so intangible.

Keep listening to hear from Graphic Designer Sheryl Young, who shares the joy of being so excited in the beginning of new projects, and the challenge of that huge amount of energy burning up so quickly and burning out fast. Sheryl also shares how she’s embraced a side of herself to cheer on her clients and using it to grow her own confidence and having permission to be authentic to herself.  

Notable Quotes and Pearls of Wisdom

“The energy of the Inspirer Believer is about balance, about what’s best for everyone not just ourselves.” – Kimberlie

“The inspiration is in everything in life it’s all around us and in the air we breathe.” – Pavitra

“Allow yourself to be authentically you.” – Sheryl
