In Episode 032 of The Former Lawyer Podcast, I’m sharing my conversation with Shunta Grant. Shunta left legal practice in 2015 to run her then side-hustle, Because of Zoe Designs, full-time. She has since started a second business teaching women how to build businesses on the other side of busy, and is launching a third business, the Best Today™ Brand, to help all women learn how to build lives on the other side of busy.

In this conversation, Shunta shares about:

  • Going to a meeting in high school that was supposed to be for students interested in student council that turned out to be a meeting for mock trial, and discovering she loved mock trial and was great at it;
  • Applying to college thinking that she was going to be pre-med, and why she chose law school instead;
  • Having a “checklist” of all the things that she should accomplish in law school as a high achiever;
  • How she grew to dislike her law firm job so much that when Sunday evening would roll around, she could feel the dread creeping in;
  • How missing a coworker’s wedding and being forced to work on a planned trip was the last straw for her;
  • The exact moment she turned to her husband and told him she was going to quit;
  • How she knew that going to another law firm wouldn’t fix the problem;
  • Why she’s so passionate about the idea that YOU get to choose what to do with YOUR life;
  • How she started making hair bows for her daughter while still working at the law firm and turned it into a business, Because of Zoe Designs;
  • Why you can be both logical and creative (and don’t have to choose);
  • Leaving her law firm to run Because of Zoe full-time;
  • How her work with Because of Zoe led to a second business helping women grow their own businesses and a podcast, the Business, Life, and Joy Podcast;
  • How her work with women on their businesses has now transitioned into working with all women to help them get clear on what they want and show up as their best;
  • Why she loves Mondays now;
  • How and why she created her newest product, the Best Today™ Guide;
  • and much more!
