Hi Friend! I’M SHUNTA

(Pronounced “shun-tay”), 

Creator and owner of Because of Zoe Designs, host of the Business, Life & Joy podcast and business educator teaching women how to build business (and life) on the OTHER side of busy!

I believe that your business and life were meant for more than “busy.”

You can live a joyful life you love, build a business that impacts your customers and clients and do both while honoring your current season of life. But, it doesn’t happen by chance, you need a framework. And I just so happened to have created the Peace Pace Progress™ four-step framework that has transformed hundreds of women from busy and overworked to focused and goal-oriented business owners and leaders. 


1. Integrity

Always lead with integrity. No exceptions.  I believe that how you do one thing is how you do everything.  This applies to both life and business.  I lead with integrity and work with women who do the same.

2. Joy

At the root of all that I do you will find JOY.  I am so grateful to live a life of joy and to find immense joy in the work that I do.  It is my hope to bring this joy into the lives and businesses of my clients and all those who are in my presence!

3. Life First. Business Second.

I don’t believe in striving for the mythical concept of ” work/life balance.”  Instead, I believe in and strive for harmony in everything that I do.  When you keep first things first, you will find a life of peace, joy, and harmony.  I plan my businesses to fit my life and not the other way around.  Doing so has aided the growth of my businesses and allows me to flourish in my various roles and responsibilities–mom, wife, friend, daughter, business owner, and the list goes on and on!

4.  Big Picture, Long Game.

I play the long game.  I believe that winning entrepreneurs think long-term and don’t reach for short-term solutions that look and feel good in the now; rather, they think of where they want to be in the long run and take one step at a time to get there.  Slow and steady wins the race.  Don’t believe me? Read the Tortoise & the Hare.


In everything that I acquire– knowledge, time, resources– I give back generously.  Additionally, as a company we believe in being generous to the community of women are called to serve.  This core value was added in 2019 as a promise to ourselves to find unique and effective ways to ensure that giving is at the forefront of what we do as a team and what I do as a leader. 


I went from being “team too much” to business + life on the other side of busy.

In September 2015, I left the private practice of law to pursue entrepreneurship full time. When I turned my “side joy” Because of Zoe  into my full-time career, I found myself spending 10 hour work days doing all the things. If you asked me how I was doing, the first phrase that always seemed to come up was, “I’m just so busy.”  When my workday was cut in half (due to our daughter’s new school schedule) I knew I had to master my time if I wanted to see the progress I set out for.  And now, I have a shorter workday, two online businesses, a weekly podcast, two beautiful children, and my days are run with far more ease than when I had one business and a 10 hour work day.  Life on the other side of busy is life-changing!


I teach women how to get the most out of every second of their day.  With that said, my guarantee is a no- fluff guarantee.  My content is actionable, conveyed simply, and done in short amounts of time so that you can join me in the land of peacefully productive!

Shunta is a breath of fresh air. In an industry where everyone is telling me a million different ways to do everything, Shunta’s no-nonsense guidance is revolutionary. I am inspired every day by the way she truly lives what she teaches. Her integrity is second to none!
