I used to work in an office. I did that for too long and I decided to pull the plug on a career that wasn't providing me with any sense of accomplishment or satisfaction. I built a tiny house for my daughter and I. I so enjoyed this process that I wanted to build more. Tiny Industrial was born. Now I build tiny houses and help others forge their own path as well via my coaching business. This new path is infinitely more rewarding. Reach out to me and share your tiny house aspirations. Let's work together. I've written a book on tiny houses!
