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

The Thrive Factor Book Series Law of Effortlessness Podcast Elle Roberts Ashleigh Rae Shannon Bush Pioneer Seeker Effortless Success Zone Thriving Entrepreneur

Pioneer Seeker Thrive Factor Archetype

Welcome to the Law of Effortlessness Podcast with your #businessyoda host, Shannon Bush today joined by two cheeky and pioneering women, Elle Roberts and Ashleigh Rae. In this episode, Shannon Bush speaks with Elle Roberts and Ashleigh about the Pioneer Seeker Thrive Factor Archetype. This lady is the early adopter of new ideas and technology and is constantly innovating. She is also cheeky and playful and others can find it difficult to keep up with her. 

Elle starts off the episode with some information about herself and her business, and how its evolved. Elle identifies when she learned about her archetypes and lists them as Mentor Teacher, Inspirer Believer, Liberator Engineer, Shapeshifter Alchemist, and Pioneer Seeker. She shares with us how she felt when she learned what her archetypes were, and how learning them clarified some things about herself.

Elle talks about how difficult it was starting her business as a single mom, and how shy she was about it starting out. She explains how she had to learn the aspects of a business that she didn’t know, and how she reached out to others to join her in her business. Elle shares with us the disadvantages and challenges of being a Pioneer Seeker, and how she wants to learn and try everything. Elle imparts some words of wisdom on us about being a Pioneer Seeker, and how it shapes you.

In part two of this episode, you’ll hear from Ashleigh Rae, her business and how she first came to meet her Pioneer Seeker Archetype in early 2018, along with her other two Thrive Factor Archetypes – the Inspirer Believer and Shape Shifter Alchemist. You’ll hear how at first, Ashleigh didn’t know what to do with the knowledge of her archetypes, and how she didn’t love them or interact with them – and then how she began to embrace them.

She identifies which archetype she has had the most trouble with, and talks about the challenges that each archetype brings into her life. Ashleigh Rae also talks about how her archetypes have helped her, both in her business life and in her personal life. She mentions other personality tests she’s done before, and how she felt like they never really fit her. She identifies the weaknesses of other personality tests and emphasizes how strong the archetype test is and how she uses it to profile her clients.

The episode ends with Ashleigh giving advice for those who share her archetypes, and giving words of encouragement. To hear Ashleigh’s advice, tune in to this episode! And if you’re curious about your archetypes, check out Shannon Bush’s The Thrive Factor Book!

Pearls of Wisdom 

“I’m a huge ideas person, and it took me a long time to wrap my head around this. I had to learn it’s OK to embrace and hug the Bright Shiny Objects.” – Ashleigh Rae

“Your archetypes are a filter to guide you in how you want to show up, and what you want to do” – Shannon Bush

“I often feel like how come there are not more people standing right here with me, and learning about that Pioneer Seeker and that adventurous, you know, just keep going doing the next new thing, was like oh, that’s why it feels like there’s no one next to me. It’s not that nobody wants to be my friend, it’s that I’m in this different space” – Elle Roberts

088 | The Network Connector | The Thrive Factor Book Series

Business Marketing Coach Shannon Bush Law of Effortlessness Podcast Jayne Griffiths Network Connector Thrive Factor Book Perth Archetypes

Network Connector with Jayne Griffiths

In this episode, #businessyoda and Amazon-Best-Selling Author Shannon Bush is back and today discussing the Network Connector Thrive Factor Archetype!  Shannon interviews Jayne Griffiths, who identifies as a Network Connector.

Shannon starts off by describing the characteristics of a Network Connector, and gives some advice about traversing this archetype.  Jayne tells us about her business Indigo Shift and explains what she does in her work. Jayne shares how she started working with Shannon and identifies her archetypes as the Inspirer Believer, Mentor Teacher, Advocate Rescuer, Shapeshifter Alchemist, and the Network Connector, as well as some of the challenges she’s faced with them and strengths she has because of them.

Jayne tells us more about her Network Connector, and how she enjoys networking and meeting people. She finds it very easy to connect people with each other; sharing that it seems like a natural thing to her, and describes it as a ‘map in her head’. She does admit, that networking can be tiring sometimes, and that networking connections can at times be shallow. She’s now dedicated herself to smaller networking groups so that she can create long and meaningful relationships. 

Shannon gives Jayne and the rest of us some advice about being a Network Connector and assures us that not everyone is an extrovert and that’s okay. Jayne gives us some tasty tidbits of advice to help other Network Connectors through their journey! 

Pearls of Wisdom

“A Networker Connector has an incredibly wide and broad and deep network of individuals in her world, both on a personal level and a professional level” – Shannon

“I feel like I almost carry a map around in my head, about everyone I meet and how they would all link to each other, and to me that seems very natural” – Jayne

“Network connectors hover and see, scan the room, to see who’s there, to see who you know, see who you don’t know, see who you think might not know each other, and put all those pieces of the human puzzle together” – Shannon

087 | Mother Nurturer | The Thrive Factor Book Series

The Thrive Factor Book Series Shannon Bush Law of Effortlessness Podcast Mother Nurturer Thrive Factor Archetypes Business Marketing Coach Perth

Mother Nurturer Thrive Factor 

Welcome to episode 87 of the Law of Effortlessness, with your Amazon Best Selling Author and #businessyoda Shannon Bush. In this solo episode, Shannon talks to us about the Mother Nurturer Archetype and how the archetype is not necessarily about being a literal mother of children-its about nourishing and nurturing those she considers to be her family. Mother Nurturers love to feed their family and will endeavor to make everyone feel loved and cared for, welcoming people into her fold like they are family.Mother Nurturers, remember though your greatest treasure and lessons are in self-nourishment.

Today Shannon is joined by two guests, Lyn Uniewicz from The Gifting Pot (all about giving!) and Tracy O’Meara Smith a Bowen Therapist from Silverdale.

In the first interview, Lyn shares her business, the Gifting Pot, a boutique gifting business. Sharing how she met Shannon through a friend, and how she did her archetype profile with Shannon. She identifies the four archetype that she identifies with Queen Ruler, Inspirer Believer, Mother Nurturer, and the Mediator Diplomat. Lynn tells us how she felt when she learned about her Mother Nurturer Archetype and identifies the strengths that come with being a Mother Nurturer, as well as some of the challenges.

We’re joined by Bowen Therapist Tracey O’Meara Smith from Silverdale in part two of this episode, who identifies as a Mother Nurturer, Inspirer Believer, Shape Shift Alchemist and Advocate Rescuer. Tracey shares how liberating it was to embrace the wisdom of her Mother Nurturer and allow this side herself to come to the fore. Tracey shares how she fat out rejected the Mother Nurturer initially but came to see the bigger picture and how shehe needed to come into her own authenticity and voice. Shannon asks Tracey how this shows up in her business, and Tracey shares how she had to learn that not everyone is ready for everything you have to give, andthat having a level of detachment from what happens in her therapy room is never about her personally, but about someone else and gives her clients the room to find and spread their own wings.

Pearls of Wisdom

“Mother Nurturers, the greatest gift you can give yourself is to let yourself nurture you”-Shannon

“I used to feel very guilty about looking after myself first and then looking after others”-Lyn

“I’ve learned in the last twelve months to back off when I need to back off. They know I’m there when they need me, and when they do need me I’m there one hundred percent”-Lyn

“You realize that even though you have the grander vision, its what you integrate and learn along the way.”-Tracey

“I had to understand my own depths…and accept myself for who I am.”-Tracey“Nothing is better than a Mothers love.”-Tracey

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

“Find the space that feels effortless. It’s the easiest way, find the space where you bring your Mentor Teacher to life.” – Sarah Thomson

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
