Marketing Business Coach Shannon Bush Being Industry Leader Law of Effortlessness Podcast Perth

Have you wondered how some businesses seem to be the leaders of their industry, and how they got there? 

Welcome to a special episode of the Law of Effortlessness Podcast… as taken over by Shannon’s Online Presence and Podcast Manager, Ashleigh!

On this episode, you will hear a special interview Shannon gave to Julz Pozar, originally aired on Boss Mode Radio on becoming an industry leader and why on earth you’d be interested in being the authority in your space – beyond increasing your client list!

>> When you tune in remember this was originally recorded for a radio show, so there’s mentions of breaks 😉

You’ll hear some familiar names, and the success stories of Kat Blake and Carla Schammer, current members of the Thriving Entrepreneur Circle Facebook Community.

Listen in for Shannon’s 5 Key Ingredients to becoming an industry leader:

  1. Niching
  2. Getting support
  3. Mindset and Confidence
  4. Consistency
  5. Being on-brand

There are nuggets of gold throughout this interview from tips on networking effectively, knowing what branding means, focusing on the things you are accomplishing and the things you can celebrate, and setting goals that are so big it sends us into overwhelm, and remembering your vision for your business.

Shannon takes on common myths from doubting your own ability to be an industry leader, what to do if there are already several established and prominent industry leaders, to the fear of failing and making mistakes. You’ll also hear how and why Shannon got into business in the first place and the incredible people who influenced her inner entrepreneur.

10 Empowering Reasons To Put Yourself First (Bonus Downloadable Wallchart Included)

I am always so inspired by the moment that someone I am meeting for the first time puts their hand up to say

“I’m not going to do this any more – I deserve more for me!”

and decides there and then that they are going to take back control and lead their lives – that’s personal leadership and that’s why I do what I do – for those moments

It makes me believe in the human spirit, in all things Creative Possibility and in myself and my commitment to lead by example

How often have you stopped to reflect on how much you are really giving to yourself that is loving, nurturing and freeing?

Over the past few weeks I have had some really interesting experiences with a number of clients and have seen a big shift in their self commitment.  This has left me feeling elated.  Why?  Just over a week ago I shared the above message on my Facebook page which possibly gives some insight

Today I want to expand on this further by sharing 10 empowering reason’s why I think you need to put yourself first and with that I hope to inspire you to put yourself first (and yes, as always I am committed to leading by example so I am doing my bit and taking my own advice!)

Right at the end of the list you’ll find a wall chart that you can download and print to keep as a reminder of why it’s important to put yourself first.  There’s a few extra spaces so you can add your own reason’s too because there is great inner power in self inspiration

10 Empowering Reasons To Put Yourself First

1. When you do others will too
2. You deserve the very best of everything and putting yourself first is an act of self belief
3. The world deserves the very best, bright, shining, loving version of you today and every day
4. Life is limitless when you put yourself first
5. You get to call the shots and be the leader of your journey
6. Life is what you make it and putting yourself first shows you that you are worth it
7. Choices and the actions that follow speak louder than words (what are you saying?)
8. Being a little selfish is actually healthy for you
9. Doing so shows others how to do the same (so they can benefit from all the positive abundance that comes with doing so too)
10. When you do show yourself unconditional love all that creates more abundance, joy, love and effortless success in your life

The Real You: Overcoming Identity Confusion Part 2

Ultimate Blog Challenge Post 3

Last month I shared some key insights into the state of identity confusion.  This included providing a bit of psychological background into the origins of this term as well as some benefits to getting clear on who you are.  Knowing your true self is about having a clear identity (you can read part 1 here)

I promised I’d be back with a second installment in this series as it’s something that I see as a big challenge for many people.   So here it is, part 2 of the Overcoming Identity Confusion series, The Real You

In this post I agreed to share with you key insights into how to create a powerful identity and I plan to do that by sharing 3 things that you are probably doing right now that are potentially leading to increased confusion, growing overwhelm, loss of confidence and a sense of not only “who am I” but “what on earth am I doing?”

2013: What Does It Mean To Me?

It’s the first day of the new year.  A time when people feel tired, a little worse for wear after celebrations the night before.  A time to reflect and to decide that things really are to be different this year.  Take a moment to think about your 2012 and all that happened in the past 12 months.  Use today and in fact the entire month of January to make conscious choices about how the next 12 months are going to be for you

I’m starting the year by participating in the Ultimate Blog Challenge hosted by a dear friend Michelle Shaeffer (I had Michelle feature as a guest on last week’s podcast episode of my radio show – listen in here!) and her colleague Michele Scism – together they have been running 4 successful challenges each year teaching bloggers how to get their blogs to soar!

What does this mean?  It means I’ll be posting something every day for the coming month.  It’ll likely just be a short message on my reflections over the month as I take up my own challenge to make conscious choices about how the next 12 months are going to be for me in my life and business

Day 1: 2013 What Does It Mean To Me?Happy New Year

2013 is for me a fresh start.  I’ll be totally honest here, 2012 sucked for me in so many ways.  It also held some of the greatest opportunities for me to gain self understanding and on a professional level it was a successful year for me.  I achieved goals I didn’t really think I would, made and sustained some inspiring and powerful connections, worked with more and more committed, passionate, determined clients who saw abundant results in their own lives and businesses and so much more

That said I ended 2012 tired.  No, make that exhausted!

I am now excited about the prospects of the new year but wondering where to get the motivation, drive and determination I need to make it as successful as I know it has the potential to be.  So 2013 to me is all about self support.  It is about balancing my energy, taking time out when I know I need to, not when I fall in a heap.  It is about filling myself with nourishment – good food, plenty of activity, inspiring learning, saying yes to dynamite opportunities, connecting with people who speak my language and are willing to support me and receive my support in return.  It’s about loving and being loved.  It’s about colour and feeling fully alive each and every day.  It’s about things being effortless, easy, free and limitless

It’s going to be a great year.  I can just feel it!

What’s 2013 mean to you?  love you to share your thoughts below

 

Choosing Limitless! Leading Your Life Your Way

Limitless – Creating An Expanded VisionCreative Possibility Limitless Leap

I am still astounded at the number of people I meet who are stuck somehow.  It might be that they are stuck in an aspect of their personal life, or perhaps in something to do with their business or career

What I’ve learned over the past few years as I’ve embarked on my own personal and professional journey of transformation is that the way I think about things and the beliefs that I am holding onto have a direct impact on the outcomes I experience in absolutely all areas of my life

Today I wanted to share with you a tool that I use regularly to help me to stay focused on the effortless, limitless way to be, do and have

As someone who loves to reflect and ask questions the tool is based on a set of 3 power questions that instantly help me to see things differently and then to take action to do things differently so I can be different and experience something differently

It’s something that I find is perfect for getting out of those stuck situations – the stuck-ness can be so overwhelmingly arresting if you let it – so today I ask you to choose limitless, consider living your life your way and get out of what ever ‘stucky’ thing you’re in

Limitless Power Questions

1.  What do I feel attached to about the situation I am in?

2.  What am I willing to do differently to feel differently or to get a different outcome?

3.  What action will I take immediately based on what I’ve just discovered?

I’d love to hear about any ‘stuck’ situations where you try using this tool.  Please feel free to leave your comments below

Until next time I wish you a limitless life filled with succulent, effortless success
