Book Club Announcement: "Your Money or Your Life" by Vicki Robins. Every Monday I’ll post a journal or thought exercise about the book. At the end of July I’ll have two sessions where we jump onto Zoom and chat about the book! So if you want to work on your money mindset this July follow along on instagram @thehappylawyerproject!


Today on the show I chat with former attorney turned entrepreneur Shunta Grant. Shunta now spends her days as the creator and owner of Because of Zoe Designs, host of Business Life and Joy Podcast, and as a business educator for entrepreneurs. Whether you are an entrepreneur looking to move past their busy or a lawyer trying to get unbusy, there is a ton of useful information in this episode about time management and how to fill your life with things that bring you more joy.


What you’ll learn:


  • Shunta’s current occupation
  • Shunta’s path in the law
  • Tips for making smart business building decisions
  • How her second business came to be
  • The reason why people are too busy in their lives
  • How to let go of the little things for big time payoff
  • Why you should start counting costs




  1. What is your process for making tough decisions?
  2. How do you prioritize your own happiness?
  3. A mindset shift that changed you?
  4. Name a book that has inspired your journey.
  5. What do you think separates lawyers who are happy to lawyers who struggle to find happiness in life with a law degree?


Fan Question: @Lacarlita, Carly on Instagram “Is being busy required when you first start out in the law? Or is it possible to do less?”


Best Advice for Finding Happiness
