Becoming A Master Receiver In Your Business With Shauna Van Bogart


Diane: Hey. Hey everyone. I met this week's guest Shauna van Bogart, who is a transformative change agent for small business owners at an event, you know, back when we could still travel. And she introduced me to her primer book, concept, think vision board on steroids, but way more practical and way more organized. And. She instantly became my go-to person when I have practical questions around manifestation and mindset, because, you know, often the advice in this area is super vague, but Shauna gives step by step action-based suggestions, which I love because they don't require me to believe anything. I just need to do it. So I'm super excited to introduce her to you as well. Hey Shauna, welcome to the show. Shauna: Hey, thanks for having me. I'm so excited for this chat. Diane: Me too. So let's start a little bit with your business journey because you've changed a few things along the way. Shauna: under the umbrella of transformation. But when I came into self-employment in 2007, it was into the image consulting industry. So I was quite literally working with people, transforming their image and that included appearance, behavior, communication training and using those tools to reach their goals. And over the years, it's just gone. Deeper and deeper and deeper. So I know transformation inside and out with all the tools and at this point all the way down to the depths of the subconscious as I just received my master hypnotherapist certification last year. So everything's been under that umbrella. And I, I went from quite a wide audience with image consulting, to narrowing down on service providers and personal brands as business owners. Diane: So Shauna, I'm a little concerned that we might have somebody listening who is kind of like me and on that side of like, Look, this manifestation stuff. I'm not a hundred percent sure about it, so if somebody is feeling that way, listening to this, before we dive into what we're going to talk about today, how do we just frame this so that they can still take away from this interview? Shauna: well, there's several angles that I could take with you. And I love these. These are my people because I'm incredibly practical, very practical. That's probably my default. And I took that. Almost to an extreme, too much to where I needed to leave the door open for a little bit of magic to happen, as I would say. And one of the conversations that I would probably engage in Is on the mindset side would be looking at the subconscious instead of thinking it's this woo spiritual like universe, whatever. Like, let's just get clear on what tapes have been running from a really young age around whatever it is we're dealing with, because that is very practical and that can be quantified in a lot of ways. And that's where I'm dealing with people in on. Earthing these conflicts that we have at play, you know, for example I have to work hard to get what I want is a very common mindset tape that most entrepreneurs have. And we can track that back to a childhood where we had a parent maybe that was obsessed with entitlement, or you only got rewarded for a pluses. You know, you had to work hard to get things, you know, and we look at how well that serving you. At this point and those things serve you, but at some point they stop or things stagnate and we have to change the narratives up. So really a lot of manifestation comes back down to what's happening in our mind, the narratives, and then rewriting those. And that's very practical. Diane: So if I stay with that example of, I have to work hard. When somebody moves into more of a manifestation space and starts to visualize what they want and starts to kind of trust that it could happen. And it happens. It's more that they're recognizing that it's happening, whereas before their internal tape would have stopped it and been like, you don't deserve this thing. So therefore the opportunity when you see it, you don't take it. Shauna: absolutely. And even when we do earn it, the internal struggles we have when it looks like we're about to receive something are still there. I mean, we ha there's so much awkwardness around receiving, and we say we want so much, but then when it starts to look like it's showing up for example, we're actually in the home buying process right now, and we have our dream home under contract. And the closer that it gets to that close date is when all of the second guessing all of the doubt, all of the worry, all of the anxiety tends to come up. And this happens to all of us. All of us have stories like this, where We're so excited. It looks like we're going to get that dream client closed or whatever. And then, the mind starts turning, right? Diane: So it's actually a more practical conversation around mindset versus some kind of spiritual universal they are D that's going to perform some magic. It just feels like magic to us because we're letting it happen Shauna: It is well and, you know, trust, trust is part of it. I don't care what you, what you decide to believe in or trust in, but you do need trust. If we don't trust we're in control and. Any successful business owner will tell you that if you're in control 100% of the time, you're completely off track. In fact, you're probably leaving money on the table. So trust is a major, major part of this, but it could be just trust in your higher self trust in your inner knowing trust in things, working out in your favor, trust in God, trust in literally whatever, but you need to leave the door open and to take your hand off the wheel. Diane: I liked what you said earlier about just leave the door open for a little magic, because we've all had those moments of just everything suddenly clicked and you were like, I don't know how that happened. I'm just going to try not to make a move so that I don't accidentally disturbed us. Shauna: and there you go. And that's another part, another part of it too, that I worked through with my, with my audiences, like how do we get out of that? Because that's unnecessary. Like, okay, don't move, don't screw it up. You know? And that's where again, trust. But I like to say, you know, the universe never toys with you. And so when that little bit of magic is coming in and things are falling into place, we have a choice at each point where our mind starts to spend, we have a choice to go deeper into that head spinning in that overthink. Or we have a choice to just stick with a very clean, simple narrative and just shut it up. Right. And so one of them that I always say is, The universe doesn't toy with me. So if all of this is coming together effortlessly and all of this is just snapping into place, I'm not going to go into all of this. I'm just going to stick with universe. Doesn't toy with me. I'm a receiver, you know, it wouldn't dangle something in front of you and then yank it away from you. There's nothing vindictive about the receiving process. Diane: So let's dive into the receiving process because I know for you, that's a huge component of how we actually get business success. And the question you usually start with as like how you are taking a compliment. And that is such an interesting space because especially as women. We're taught to kind of brush it off. And then I obviously come from the more British upbringing where it's like, doubly like shake it off. So that is a really awkward place. And it's even more awkward for me when I see somebody get given a compliment and then they go, Oh, I received that. Not even that, I would be awkward saying it, it just feels like such an awkward thing to say. Like, I would say thank you and move Shauna: Oh yeah. Yeah. Awkward for you. Diane: Yeah. But when people are like actively receiving, Shauna: Yeah. Diane: it's just this completely bizarre experience for me Shauna: Yeah, Diane: so I can see how we're really bad at it, but how does that then show up in our businesses? And then how do we get better at Shauna: Yeah, well that right there, that's an interesting example of that might quite literally just be semantics and the style. I'm a thank you. You know, that's still, that's still equally as valuable as someone who sits there and says, I received that. That might make me feel awkward too, because. Sometimes, maybe it's just coming across disingenuous. Maybe that's what it is. I don't know. But what it looks like in your business. Yes. So receiving your clients, you know effortlessly feeling like any work that you're doing in your business equates to the rewards and then some it looks like attracting the people that you need to support you and actually allowing that support in how many business owners make the hire, but then micromanage their hires or how many business owners are constantly disappointed by the people they're hiring. Right. Because they haven't quite been able to let go of the clutch of doing it their way. They can't see that there's perhaps other better ways out there. And so they don't allow that support in it can manifest as getting testimonials and not believing what they say. And so you're still struggling with, is this a value? Am I going to really help this person? Diane: I think pre like a lot of mindset work. I was definitely of that. Oh, they're just being nice. they're kind of my friend and they don't want to be me. Whereas now I'm actually like, Hmm. I feel like you could have ramped that up a little bit. Be like use the button to mention these 17 things, but it's taken a lot of mindsets to get there, but I think I haven't considered. What, my mind tells me when somebody pays me money, when somebody gives me a referral when somebody offers to help for no reason, very British don't want to be above that. so receiving help is probably the most uncomfortable I get. Shauna: it's connected to giving, right? I mean, we could take this from a very altruistic place and it is true that if we want to give big we first and foremost have to get big, but what we hear is give to get, and I reverse that I think the easiest example in the world is I just became a mom. Right. And moms give so much on any given day. I could be really cranky about having to do the dishes or clean up because I'm doing so much, the same circumstances could be at play. And the next day it's totally fine. I have no quandaries about it. I'm in a good mood, whatever. What is the difference between those two days? One is my cup is empty or near empty. And one is my cup is full and I'm giving from the overflow. And so you have to receive actively in big ways if you want to give big and many of us, because we've heard you have to give, to get are trying to go out there and give, give, give whether that's impact or service or whatever in our businesses. And we're not actively receiving whether that's. Like truly believing your clients when they tell you how you changed their world or change their business, or, appreciating the money that's coming in. And gratitude is a big part of this. And, you know, gratitude's been scientifically studied for decades. Now we know the benefits of gratitude, but what I teach and what I go into with my clients is to go deeper than that because gratitude's not enough. And so really the conversation is around self-worth. And I'm sure when you started to do some of the mindset work, you were touching on self-worth to get you to a place where you're like you can beef up that testimonial. you shifted yourself worth level and relationship. I imagine. Diane: Yeah. through baby steps with often for help where it didn't have like some big. meaning around it. The person could say no, and it wasn't some reflection of me. You know, I come from that corporate background where heaven forbid as a female, you showed an inch of weakness. Shauna: And that's where, like, I would love to get my hands on them to help them snap into place, a different way of being, because you have to see and rewrite your definition of strength and weakness. And that is so common, right? Like to ask for help and to reach out. And I mean, this, this story around weakness, which is unique for all of us, based on our upbringing, what we saw, what society tells us, where we live that isn't really deep rooted one, but. By nature of the way you're talking about it, reaching out for support in and of itself takes so much courage. What do you think is stronger continuing to reach out in that vulnerability or just remaining where you are? it takes strength to reach out. And so by nature of reaching out to get that support and reaching out to, ask people to help you, it's one of the strongest things in the world that you can do. And when you take that perspective, you're like, actually, yeah, that requires a lot of courage. And you can then, you know, anchor into that narrative. And then if we can even further take that into like a hypnosis track or put that in some guided imagery for your meditation. So we're changing the tape underneath, that's running, you know, while you're going about your day, then even better. Diane: I think one of the things that really clicked for me on that journey about being able to receive help was actually thinking how good it feels. To help someone else. And therefore I'm kind of aching that from someone. So it stopped being about me receiving help. And if I said, no, I was taking from someone. And so that was a really interesting reframe for me to be like, Hey, there's this kind of cycle I need to pay someone for a service they do for me so that somebody can pay me for the service that I do for them. And it kind of goes in that nice Shauna: Well, you kind of just proved my point, which is great because giving oftentimes is receiving at the same time and it feels so good to support people, right? It feels like a gift. It feels like something I'm receiving versus something I'm giving. And so again, we come back to receiving, and most of the time, 90% of the time, it's a mindset shift. So you went from a contracted retractive mindset to something that feels expansive, something, and it was predicated on receiving there are infinite opportunities throughout our day to tap into receiving. Just like that, but we have to see what we've normalized and it's really hard to see what we've normalized in those blind spots without having a third-party to do so. And to help you out. Diane: it kind of takes away from that. You have to find your limiting belief and remove it, which we all know is true, but that's almost an impossible thing for somebody to understand until you see that limiting belief, you just have no idea of its existence. Shauna: Yes. Diane: And suddenly now, if we start to talk about receiving that's something that I can look for, because I know what that looks like. I might not be able to fix the tape underneath it, but I should be able to at least like incrementally lift myself Shauna: Well, yeah. If you have the conscious awareness of it, that's huge. As someone who teaches this, I mean, just last night again, I was talking to my mom over texts and we were talking about the baby and, you know, feeding and breastfeeding and whatnot. And I said something about being lazy around pumping. Cause it's just so much easier to breastfeed and she goes, no, breastfeeding is a convenience. She goes, I'm just trying to give you your own advice, receive that it's a gift. And I was like, see, there you go. Like, it's just our, our mind. It's on autopilots, but it's supposed to do, you know, and so we just get stuck in these, these narratives, but w we don't understand is those are the narratives that are quite literally turning into our future. We're getting more of the same based on our thoughts, right? So you got to choose every single day. You've got to choose, and sometimes you have to choose the narrative every 10 minutes. Diane: What is a kind of practical way that somebody listening to this? could immediately do something that makes them more aware of or more open to receiving right now. Shauna: The biggest thing is to take a pause. It's really hard, but take a pause before you start going into problem solving mode. Because when you immediately start jumping into problem solving mode, when you encounter anything that feels like a challenge, or you've got to fix, you're really missing the gold that is going to transform and offer an opportunity for you to go in a different direction. So take quite literally 10 seconds. Before you want to go into, how can I fix this? Ma even if it's mindset work. Before you even go into the mindset work before you even get into your journal to think about what you're thinking about. Just pause. And really like, just see what's coming up. like to say like, let your inner child have their day in court. You know? Cause usually it's like in our world we call like the inner child talking, the subconscious talking, you have to sort of master the rules in order to break them. But you can't master them if you have no idea what it's saying. And so you have to just listen and let it come up. We're really bad at doing that though, because. We want to say, well, I'm not allowed to have those feelings or that feels icky, or I shouldn't complain, or I shouldn't be that way. I shouldn't have that thought. So, you know, one thing that my clients walk away with is they, they know to honor anything that comes up as like, awful as that chatter might sound to. You you'd need to know what it's saying. If you want to really change it, that's the hardest thing. But the, the best thing you could start doing. Diane: That doesn't sound like a lot of fun. I'm not going to lie. Shauna: So in my, in my community, we do this thing called release and receive our and our sessions together. And it is a space for us to vent. It's a dedicated space to show up and complain, which is highly productive because we've, we've created this narrative around complaining and yes, there are wrong ways to do it that are completely unproductive, but it's the same thing. Like we need that is a form of self care, actually to allow ourselves to say what we want to say and know that most of the time is not true. Most of the time we, it doesn't mean anything, but it means something to you and it's. Causing reactions out of you, which then trigger behavior out of you. That's leading you to get less than desirable, results and circumstances. So I'm letting that come up, actually feels oddly like icky, but at the same time, kind of like nourishing to be able to just like, sit with it. Diane: So if I'm doing that, like, if I'm just like verbally processing something, I'm just word vomiting down boxer to like my biz bestie or something. I find that as soon as I say it out loud, it's almost like I can hear. Why it's not true, but I wonder if there's something and I haven't tried this, but I wonder if there's something and even just saying it out loud to yourself. Shauna: Oh, you absolutely can. what I would recommend is just get into Voxer and send yourself voice notes. you don't have to listen to them, but just, talking to yourself out loud. Absolutely. But I do think there's some power in like expressing it to a note because it is like you're saying it to a third person and I think there's something powerful in the witness, part of that being witnessed. And then, because I mean, think about a time where you have allowed something to come up and you've expressed it to someone, and they've been able to receive that for you and just hold that space again. Another like gold moment that we so often overlook or contain for ourselves that that really can be transformative. I think actually a lot of transformation happens in those moments where we admit something or say something vulnerably in front of someone and someone else has the capacity to just sit there and be with it for us. Diane: Yeah. It's not fix it to not try and change anything about it or you just be there. Shauna: I mean, can you imagine if we did that more for ourselves, what that would do? Diane: I think it's interesting the idea of doing it into Voxer as well, because I don't know that I would want to listen to it really soon, but that might be a really interesting thing to look back on. And be like, wow. Okay. I really like believe the thing. Where else is that showing up? From my self-coaching perspective, you know, we don't have access to somebody who can help and who can guide you. if people want to get a little taste of the Shauna experience, And get better if they, if they're like having the complete heebie-jeebies at the side, any of these ideas that we've talked about. First of all, I completely feel you, there has been a lot of mindset work for me to just be able to have this conversation and talk openly about this stuff. So I feel you, but where can they get a taster of how they can start to be better receive us? Shauna: Yeah, so I created a special gift for your audience. So if you go to Shauna van forward slash coffee and converse, I've opened up the Recording of our abundance treasure hunt workshop that was only for our audience. So that's a 60 minute workshop. I love it. I like to do my trainings kind of experiential. And my whole goal in everything I do is to show up and shift with me rather than just another learning thing. You sit and take notes on like, Let's do it in there. And this one's fun because I walk you through this kind of simulation, where I hope to trigger some of those thoughts out of you very easily. And no one has to worry that it's going to be like super vulnerable or emotional. It's not like that. It's quite, it's quite fun. They're like kind of exaggerated simulations. So in that workshop, the abundance treasure hunt, we're going to see where you're containing those desires in that abundance, through the. The narratives and this process that we've been talking about here. So Shauna van for slash coffee and converse, they can get access to that free workshop that I do. Diane: That's awesome. I have done this when Sean has run it in the past. And it is a very, I would say unique experience. I don't want you to think it's like a workshop. Like you would go to a normal workshop. It is very much in the moment. But also very safe and non scary. Well, he had mine sitting there like, Oh, I'm so scared of what's going to come up. And then I won't be able to put it like, Oh, can of worms, but it's nothing like that. It's actually, it's probably one of the more fun mindset things that you'll ever get to do. So I highly recommend it. Shauna: that's, I'm so glad to hear you say that because that also in being in mindset and performance coaching for so long and transformation, it gets to be easy and it gets to be fun. And I think, I think sometimes we forget that. I think some coaches sometimes forget that and There's a lot of information out there that's highly misguided. And if you don't know, I know what you're doing as a coach. Like you could take people into some dark corners and not know what to do there, or actually lead people astray and yeah, you oftentimes, don't, it's true. Lunging work mindset work, as you know, but a lot of times. we're creating cycles where we're looking for problems in our mindset work. And so I'm a coach who's like, no, no, no, we're not going to continue to like, go deep into like, what's wrong and fixing. And you actually said a word earlier, which was, I think you said to remove the blocks and I'm like, no, actually has nothing to do with removing it's releasing, which is a totally different movement and is frankly easier. So I'm all about the fun and the easy approach to this stuff. Because that's what it's supposed to ultimately feel like in the end. Diane: Yeah, I'm all for dealing with mindset, stuff that is coming up and in some way, inhibiting me and not digging for the mindset stuff Shauna: no, don't do it. Diane: I'm just Shauna: never, you're taking your off track. If you're digging off track, let it again, receive like it's going to come to you when you need to work through it at the time you need to work through it, you should never be digging. Diane: Yeah. And when you're ready, like when you're able to deal with dealing with it. Awesome. Okay. So. Whew. Let's come back from all of that. Like, Oh, I love, I love when I get like personal coaching from my guests. It's great. But to finish up, I always ask my guests two questions. The first one is what is your number one lifestyle boundary for your business? Shauna: what comes up right away is probably around My intuition. Discernment's really important to me. And if I can't get to a full gut yes. In, in like my lifestyle and in my business, it's a no. And if I don't operate that way, I mean, everything is, is harder. In my, in my life, like when it comes down to where we live and how we do things like that, I have to honor number one for everything else to work. Diane: And how do you explain that to other people when you're saying no to something which on the surface say looks like a magical opportunity. And you have to say no. And I know that no is a complete sentence, but that can be a really difficult, complete sentence. So how do you, I don't want to say, explain your decision, but how do you let that person down gently and they're like, I just offered to put you in front of 50,000 people. What are you talking about? Shauna: Yeah. Yeah. So I, I once had this program called the yes. Diet because I am so good at saying no. And I love teaching people how to set those boundaries of no. And the actual, like strategic way to say no to someone is to sandwich it. So appreciate drop the know and then follow up with another form of appreciation. And so that's, I mean, quite literally how to say no. And then the other thing is to just remind yourself that when you do say yes, when you really need to be saying, no, you're not serving anyone, including them. So sometimes we get into this again, story around, Oh, it's so selfish and what am I doing? But you have to think about the other person that I know. I wouldn't want someone saying yes, who only has one foot in and one foot out. I don't want that. Like, please save me the time. Please don't commit unless you're 100% on board because it does make everything more difficult for all players. So keep coming back to that. Does that help? Diane: I like that. Cause it's kind of like, it's kind of like a receiving sandwich. Thank you for the opportunity. No, thank you. Shauna: And always great. If you have a referral, like always, if you happen to have somewhere, you can send them. That always helps too in the moment where at least you're offering something, you have something to give them, but you don't even need that as well. You have every right to be able to say no. And just remember that it doesn't serve anyone. If you're going to be able to only give it 50 bucks. Diane: it's an interesting combination because some people are so gut people like that, like intuitively I know this is the wrong move and some people are so data. Driven that when those two meet, like the it's very easy for the data person to say no, because it's like, no, and here are my 17 reasons and my pro con list and here's everything you need. And then I always feel bad. Like if I'm working with somebody who is more intuitive and they need to say no to something, it is so much harder for them because they feel like the justification is required. Shauna: And they're probably more empathic as well. So they're picking up on this, on, on the feelings of the other person, perhaps a lot of that tends to be story, people are adults, right? Like we, we assume they're not going to be able to handle the no. So I would push back on that and say as well, you know, who are you to cast judgment on them? That they're not strong enough to hear no. Right. And that, and so that right there doesn't feel good. So I would rather say no than realize that, Oh yeah. I'm, I'm like, assuming this person isn't strong enough to hear me say no to them, that doesn't feel good. Right. So that one is worse to me than the feeling guilty, you know? So I'll say no. Diane: Yeah, I would much rather somebody said no to me upfront, then drop the ball on me. Right. Or they were supposed to deliver like the one is a no thank you. And the other one is a massive inconvenience relationship disaster. So I'm always like, if I say yes to this, and then I have to pull out what that going to do. Like if I'm having a moment of like, I don't want to do this, but I'm feeling like I need to say yes. Like, because a program to say, you should say yes. Then I started to think about, okay, what happens when I actually have to deliver this. Shauna: Yep. And you know what, here's the thing too, that you can say to yourself, if you're still struggling with this, if that person gets offended by you saying no, which is the right answer for all parties, then you were right. You just proven that you were right to say no. Diane: Exactly. One less person you need in your network. Okay. Final question. This one's a toughie. What's the worst piece of cookie cutter advice you've ever had as a lifestyle entrepreneur. Shauna: it is so hard. It's such a good question, okay. here it is. So I went to college for entrepreneurship and we wrote so many business plans, like formal structured business plans. And when I started my business, my image consulting business, I would sit in Starbucks, making my business plan. I didn't use that damn business plan. I didn't even reference it. And so one of the pieces of advice that I think is. Kind of a waste because it's very unique to certain, very specific kinds of circumstances is writing a business plan. Diane: that's an interesting one because for me, so I come from a massive like planning background My job was to work out how much all of my trading desks or businesses were going to make explain it every single day when we didn't hit like daily targets. Shauna: yeah, Diane: And so I come from a real numbers, background and entrepreneurs struggle with revenue planning. Like I do not even know how somebody can tell a new baby entrepreneur write a business plan. that would be a struggle for me to do Shauna: And everything changes as you're doing. I don't know how many days, weeks I dedicated to this document. I could have been. Out there doing test clients, which would have given me a lot more information about how to structure my business than sitting down in front of my computer at Starbucks writing out of 50 page business plan, based on research, I'm finding online, you know, for, for a service-based business and influencer based business. but That's what they tell you to do. You go to like free business courses in your area, at least here. And they'll tell you write a business plan, you know? So that was a, that is a piece of advice that unless you're seeking investment and you're working with a bank to, to acquire funds, then obviously you need it. But for these types of businesses, we're not saying that plan. We're just saying you don't need to formalize the business document. Diane: You do not need to write the document that has all of those components. When you go Google business plan, it's such a dangerous space, right? Because people are like, here's what your launch numbers should be. And here's what this is. Like, if that's the first time you're doing anything, everyone is guessing. We met how much you have the business coach or the launch coach or the launch coordinator or your Facebook ads person until you've actually done the thing, at least once a complete guess. And so that whole business plan, yes. There's research in and around the market and everything, but you're right until you actually go and try and sell something to someone, you have no idea. Shauna: No idea. just learn through doing. Learn through doing in those beginning years because yeah. You don't know what you don't know, and you're going to adapt your own style as well. And how many times, how many times have you changed pricing in over the year? Oh my God. I can't even count how many times I think. Diane: How many times have I changed what I'm selling? I've been on like an entire journey with my business as my mindset work happened This has been amazing. I love how practical you are about the stuff that is sometimes difficult to get your hands around. I want everybody to go and do the abundance treasure hunt. That's such a kind gift to give to my audience. Please take advantage of that. But in the meantime, if they want to carry on this conversation with you, where's the best place for them to connect with you. Shauna: yep. My Instagram for sure. Shawna van Bogart.
