You must know that I have made an effort to stop doing business as usual.
You will not find an about me page here, rather, you and I will get to know each other over coffee.
How does that sound?
I want to tell you a story.
The story of a girl. *insert cheesy music from the early 2000’s*
This girl is from a small town in Texas you’ve probably never heard of. She went to school and got her degree in psychology because she thinks people are interesting.
She thinks people are so interesting that she decided to get her life coaching certification and start her own business.
This girl is a little crazy.
She can organize her things, but not her schedule. She lives in an RV full-time with her husband, and she wants to get to know other like-minded people so badly she’s been known to send cold emails periodically.
This girl is me. GASP!
After I opened Mine Space in 2016, I felt lost.
I put a lot of time and a lot of effort putting together my first business plan, getting pro bono clients, and receiving feedback about the work I’d done.
It wasn’t long after I realized that wasn’t the kind of work I wanted to do.
I started working at a full-time office job again, and as my soul slowly began to slip away from me, I had an epiphany.
I have to start again.
Again?! I already did all that! I don’t want to do that again!
Summer 2017, we sold everything, backpacked through England, came home, bought and renovated an RV, and now we work and live on the coast of Oregon.
Our driving decision to live in an RV came out of our desire to live minimally – living with only what we need at this stage of our lives.
Now, I help people make those decisions a reality.
Now, let’s talk about you.
What do you think of when I tell you to imagine the space you’re in?
Where are you?
How do you feel?
Without getting all existential on you, I’d truly like you to think about these things.
Getting to know your spaces inherently helps you better understand yourself.
Everything we think and believe is a mixture of our physical, personal, and psychological environments and experiences.
Helping you better understand your space, the things in it, and how it affects you is what I’m after.
This is anything from your weekly shopping list to the toxic relationship you have with that one friend from high school.
Seriously, folks. It’s going to get real.
You will learn how to:
Own your personal and emotional space
Define your relationships with the stuff in your life
Get to know what a minimalistic life looks like for you
How to combat consumerism
Better understand your relationships with yourself, your stuff, and the people in your life
Mine Space is that space for you. To talk it out (or duke it out) with the things in your immediate environment you’re ready to tackle.
My biggest question for you is: are you ready?
