A few months back we did a Tiny House Chat on building a small business in tiny houses. The concept was on The Tiny Life, we talk about how you live tiny, how to live in a way that inspires you, in a way that you follow your passion.
What I realized one day that it was important for me to begin to match my career or how I earn an income to the way I want to live in my tiny house. It’s been a big shift in thinking for me because I’m about to move into my tiny house and not having rent or a mortgage has changed my financial situation so positively that I can now live and work in a way that suits me more.
So it got me thinking about working with a few awesome people that specialize in making an inspired life, living/working in a location independent fashion, building a business that suits me and then also sharing my own experiences and know-how. We are kicking around the idea of running a destination workshop on how to do all this and wanted your input.
So today I have a quick survey that I’d love your help with its just a few short questions and I think tiny house people would be interested in not only learning to live tiny, but how to match the rest of their life to tiny houses, follow your passions and live life as an adventure.
With the roll out of Tiny House Craftsman (see the post here) we are also adding to the line up our Tiny Workshops! You might have noticed a new link on our menu – “Events” – which will bring you to where you can sign up for them. Our online tiny workshops are a quick way for you to learn everything you need to know about tiny houses, how to build, what the life is like, and much more!
Each session is 30 minutes long on a specific topic and you can get all your questions answered. Our first session will be an intro to tiny houses where you can get a lot of your burning questions answered. Followed up by that we’ll get down to the nitty gritty and focus on particular topics.
