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!

You Thriving Is My Agenda

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

With the recent release of my new book The Thrive Factor, writing has been something I have been doing a lot of lately. A couple of weeks back I felt compelled to share something I felt totally needed sharing. I did so in my awesome Facebook group for women in business, The Thriving Entrepreneur Circle. > you can join here if you like and read the post!

Well what I shared rang true for a lot of the Thrivers in the group and i also had a bit of a realisation. I haven’t been sharing much written work here on my blog so I am planning to do more of that moving forward. I have loads to say. Loads to share and what better place to do so in the written word that right here hey?

So between the numerous podcast episodes and sharing of the amazing business women in my community, you’ll find more mindset, money, marketing and magnetism focused articles from me.

And as I embark on a new manuscript (already underway) I’ll share how that is progressing and what it’s all about.

Stay tuned. For now, I hope what you read below inspires you to get out of your own darn way and get on with thriving.

Creative Possibility Arrow Heart 1

You Thriving Is My Agenda...
It always has been!

You know what… when you get out of your own darn way and simply allow yourself to be MORE of who you are incredible things happen

when I first began pulling the pieces of the puzzle together to create what is now known as The Thrive Factor archetypal profiling framework in 2010 I had a very clear vision of my intention

I was determined to change women’s lives for the better

I wanted you to have more confidence
I wanted you to have more joy
I wanted you to know your purpose and to express it without needing permission from anyone
I wanted you to be more creative
To be more connected
I wanted you to love who you are
I wanted more curiousity, play and acceptance for you
I wanted you to connect with your innate potential and show it to the world
I wanted you to celebrate more
I wanted you to celebrate YOU more
I wanted you to know your effortless success zone and to choose to be in that space as much as you wanted and needed to
I wanted the world for you, and the stars and every cosmos beyond
I wanted friendship and connection for you
I wanted you to totally thrive

What do I want for you (and every woman in business – in fact on this planet) now?

All of the above personified. I want all of that for you but on a much bigger, bolder scale.

How can you create this and more for yourself?

Get out of your own darn way.

Choose effortlessness.

Choose to totally thrive.

Choose to discover your Thrive Factor

You do not need anyone’s permission
Make the commitment and make it happen

Big love

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!

LOE 074 | Recovering from Not Enough w/ Bronwen Sciortino


Law of Effortlessness Podcast Business Marketing Coach Shannon Bush Economy of Not Enough Bronwen Sciortino

074 | Recovering from Not Enough with Bronwen Sciortino and Shannon Bush

Welcome to episode 074 of the Law of Effortlessness Podcast with #businessyoda Shannon Bush and recovering perfectionist Bronwen Sciortino!

Bronwen is an internationally renowned Author, Simplicity Expert and Professional Speaker who spent almost two decades as a high-powered, award-winning executive before experiencing a life-changing event that forced her to stop and ask the question “What if there’s a better way to live?”

Bronwen spends every day teaching people there are other ways to live so they can reduce stress, build resilience and easily make changes in their everyday lives – building to a more meaningful life and improved mental and physical health and wellbeing. Bronwen blogs regularly for global platforms, and has been featured in ‘The Book of Amazing People’, ‘Reboot Your Life – Phoenix Edition’, and ‘Successful Women in Business – Winners Edition’. She is regularly invited as a guest interviewee on blogs, podcasts, radio, Facebook Live, YouTube and member sites situated throughout the world.

Bronwen works with people globally through corporate programs, conference platforms, retreats, professional mentoring and in the online environment. She shares her secrets to success and inspires individuals to simplify their lives and embrace the concept of an economy of enough.

Tune into this episode to hear how Bronwen began the process of recovery from “Not Enough” – you’ll hear how for four years she woke every day, exhausted and losing the dexterity in her hands to the extent she couldn’t hold a glass – and the incredibly powerful moments that changed her life and now have her sharing these insights, globally – and knowing and believing in her wholeness, that she is enough.

Shannon and Bronwen have a candid discussion on the idea of “Not Enough” including how it shows up in self-talk, and the sometimes shocking way we can unconsciously refer to ourselves – and of course, the small but practical ways we can take steps to begin the process of change. You’ll also hear about the heartwarming, and heartbreaking process of writing her books and a lively chat on why we need to stop following prescription self-help that doesn’t work, and learning who we are, and what works for us.

Stay tuned to the end to hear about a special give away for Thriving Entrepreneur Circle members!

Notable Quotes and Pearls of Wisdom

“Stop this following business – you’re stressed and exhausted. Don’t follow what someone else has done, because it hasn’t been made for you. Find your own answers.” – Bronwen

“Remember, you have decades of training in talking negatively to yourself. This will take time.” – Bronwen

“It’s tiny little steps that will make big changes in your life.” – Bronwen

Effortless Business Events Sarah Thomson Shannon Bush | Basics of Online Presence Law of Effortlessness Podcast

The Basics of Online Presence, Another Effortless Business Events Takes Overwith Shannon Bush and Sarah Thomson

Welcome to another installment from the Effortless Business Events team on Law of Effortlessness Podcast Take Over with your hosts, Business Coach Shannon Bush and Marketing Super Star, Sarah Thomson – this time chatting about Online Presence, something that is critical to your digital marketing success.

This episode is a juicy one – the who, what, when, where, and why of online presence from privacy to perception and expectations.

So, why is checking your online presence as a small business owner so important?

Shannon and Sarah discuss why its so important to have an online presence and to curate it and be aware of what is out there online about yourself personally, and your business. For example, you’ll do well to understand the variations on a basic Google search with images, videos, and variations of your name (especially if your name has ever changed). It’s also essential to be aware of your privacy online – as Sarah says, just because a group on Facebook is private or secret, does not mean people have not taken a screenshot of your post!

Filled with practical, effortless tips that you can immediately implement in your own business and life, Shannon and Sarah also discuss the expectations and perceptions that often come from what we share with our online presence, whether its our personal profile or business profiles on Facebook or LinkedIn, and walking the line between being comfortable with what you share with many people.

The ladies talk through what you choose to keep private drawing on Sarah’s experience with a client who holds very different beliefs on a hot-button issue, and how she chooses to engage with them and keep her own views private with careful curation of her Online presence.

So, what expectations is your online presence setting for potential customers who see you online? Enjoy the episode!


Notable Quotes & Pearls Of Wisdom

“It is your business. You need to be clear about your message.”

“Be proactive and be aware of what is online about you and your business and understand the expectation your ideal client is going to have about what you do and don’t share.”

“Consider how you talk about your customers and suppliers.”

“We all have bad days, pick up the phone and call a trusted friend.”

“If in doubt, leave it out.”

Notable Quotes & Pearls Of Wisdom

“When you believe in what you’re selling it’s completely different. You’re not selling, you’re helping.”

“It’s a marathon, not a sprint. If you’re not in this for the long run, forget it. There’s no shortcut, it takes time for people to know you before they buy from you.”

“If you put yourself last, you will burn out and your business will fail.”
