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.

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

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

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
