Leaders become great not because of their power, but because of their ability to empower others.
– John Maxwell –

What the eff even are archetypes?!

Archetypes were first introduced by famous psychologist Carl Jung way back in the 1940’s.

If you wanna’ know more about the Jung’s theory, you can read my post over here, or you could just Google it. There are about a gajillion and one articles out there that talk about them.

So instead of trying to summarize his life’s work, this page is my version of how you can apply these babies to your business + life.

Let’s dive the heck in.

Online Entrepreneurs

Success and power are a way of life for the Ruler Brand Archetype. Money is just a tool to achieve their goals, and this mindset means money flows through them easily.

Rulers are all about creating order and structure. They show up in the entrepreneurial world as the ones with proven and tested, step-by-step processes for how to do things.

Amanda Frances // Spiritual Bad-ass Boss Lady

Amanda is amazing to watch. She’s a true Ruler in that she decides what she wants, then she just makes it happen. Easy as that.

Her methods are a bit more Magician-y than most Rulers, but her ability to strategize and organize her business to achieve MASSIVE results is so inspiring. Basically, she decides what she wants and does whatever she needs to do to make it happen for her – but all in a way that feels aligned to her goals.

Plus, she’s an Oklahoma girl like me, so of course she’s on my list.

Fictional Characters

Did you know that the archetypes all have a “shadow side” too? That’s why I’m showin’ ya the GOOD and the BAD side, so make sure to hover over the imagesto learn how each character fits the Ruler Archetype.

THE GOOD Side

Elsa

She’s literally a queen, so she obviously had to be on this page. She’s not your typical Disney heroine, but she’s better. She’s a strong leader, and even though it took her a minute to figure it out, she brought Arendelle back together again.

THE BAD Side

Randall Boggs

Randall is the lizard (?) or maybe snake-y thing with legs (?) jerk that tries to steal the top spot away from from Mike & Sully. Classic Ruler shadow side – afraid of being overthrown. Ugh. I bet he’s even actually slimy.

THE GOOD Side

Phil Coulson

I loved this guy. He was the glue that brought all of the Avengers together, after all! He facilitated the process and inspired his team to work together toward a common goal. #RIP bro.

THE BAD Side

Ego

He was a little too big for his britches. Yes, he did create an entire universe, but he also used his power for evil things – like trying to murder everyone. But his name is EGO, so we really should have seen it coming, right?

THE GOOD Side

Minerva McGonagall

Professor McGonagall is classy, strong, responsible, and kind of a badass. She keeps the kids in line, but leads by example and empowers them to do the right thing.

THE BAD Side

Dolores Umbridge

Talk about abuse of power, man. She was controlling, abusive, condescending, and just plain mean. Basically, she was a straight-up tyrant. Luckily, she finally got sent to Azkaban where she freaking belongs.

THE GOOD Side

Robb Stark

Nooooooooo! I’m still mad about this one. Robb was kind, responsible, and he would have been a freaking fantastic King. That effing old man is one of the worst characters. Luckily, Arya finally took care of him.

THE BAD Side

Night King

This guy is pretty terrifying. And he doesn’t even speak?! But I bet it takes some strong leadership skills to organize an entire army of undead zombie things.

My favorite part… Music! 

My favorite part… Music!  

Rock n roll, baby

Cryin’ Like A B*tch // Godsmack

Rulers ain’t no b*tches. They’re tougher than nails – Godsmack can promise you that.

Country

Rock My World // Brooks & Dunn

This video is unbelievably cheesy. But that little country girl is a total bosslady. She wears snakeskin boots and looks good in her denim and pearls.

Pop

Fight Song // Rachel Platten

Rulers come out on top not because they don’t have struggles, but because they overcome them with confidence and grace. They fight through them and they’re classy AF.

My favorite Ruler song

Show Me A Leader // Alter Bridge

If you don’t know me yet, you should know I’m a bit of a music snob. And I’m really proud of it.

Sure, I can appreciate the occasional pop-y song for fun, but my heart lies with the true musicians who write and play their own music.

So it’s only fitting that this is my favorite song for the Ruler Brand Archetype.

Alter Bridge is one of absolute favorite bands ever.
I think I might actually be in love with Myles Kennedy.
