Online Marketing Made Easy with Amy Porterfield

Learn how to be intentional with how you organize and spend your time

If I could make a wild guess, I’d say that ‘entrepreneur’ is just one of the many hats that you wear. In fact, you probably have a laundry list of roles that you fill on a day-to-day basis -- mother, father, wife, husband, fur-parent, housekeeper, chef, chauffeur, personal shopper, gardener, accountant -- the list goes on. 

And with all that you’ve got going on in your life, I’m sure you’ve probably wondered, “How the heck do I keep up with everything and have a successful business?”

Sweet friend, if I had a dollar every time I asked myself that question, I’d be quite rich. And when I do, I remind myself that I don’t have to hustle through it all. Life is so much more fulfilling when you have more white space, more quiet time with loved ones, and more time for yourself. 

But like many things, that’s easier said than done. In order to achieve that sort of balance, you have to be intentional with how you organize and spend your time – and my guest on this episode is an expert when it comes to doing that. 

Her name is Shunta Grant, and she’s on a mission to help women live lives of intention, leading with self-awareness and self-love. Sounds pretty great, right? 

I loved this conversation with Shunta because I learned so much about how I can set habits and routines that compliment my life, and I won’t lie – her philosophy is a bit different from many others in this space.

So if you’re ready to stop going through the motions and start living in the present, tune in to hear: 

  • The difference between being productive and being efficient
  • Strategies on how to balance being an entrepreneur and a parent without falling victim to the hustle mentality
  • How to create a routine that connects you to who you are and what you want

The philosophy behind her brand, Best Today

Here’s a glance at this episode...

  • [06:33] Shunta began her career as an attorney. She realized that she wanted to create resources that plan humanity first, as opposed to doing and doing.
  • [07:25] She created Best Today to provide resources to help us center on our humanity. They help customers optimize their time focusing on mental, emotional, and physical well-being every day.
  • [07:50] Everything they do is built on the four principles of proaction, intentionality, self-awareness, and self-love. We need all four to live an intentional life and grow an intentional business.
  • [11:03] If you're clear on who you are and what you want, you will produce the things you want. Slow down and make sure the destination is the place where you want to be.
  • [13:22] Who are you? What do you want? Sit down and write out the answers to these questions and give yourself the freedom to dream.
  • [17:26] If you were worthy, what would you want? Dream every day for 10 minutes. Keep asking yourself what you want and reminding yourself that you are deserving of all of it.
  • [19:06] It's okay to throw the idea of balance out the window. Ask yourself what you really want? Honor the season that you are in. It's a container, not a restriction. Caring for children is a season. 
  • [24:06] 1. Honor the season you are in. 2. Stop comparing. 3. Take the time to prune those things that aren't feeding what's the most important.
  • [30:00] We all have routines, they just may not all be healthy. We need to create healthy routines, so that when we feel triggers we know what positive action we'll take.
  • [31:44] 1. Routines solve problems. 2. They help you to create harmony in your home. 3. They also help you create boundaries for what matters. 
  • [35:03] A lot of people don't believe they are worthy to live an intentional life. You are worthy of the effort it takes to live an intentional life. You were born worthy.
