Tiny Transition + Downsizing E-Course Now Enrolling!

Tiny House Floor Plans by Michael Janzen

The following is a guest post from Mariah Coz.

The popular Tiny Transition and Downsizing E-Course is now open for registration for the next session, which will begin on October 5th. When you sign up for the Tiny Transition + Downsizing class, you get:

  • 8 weeks of downsizing lessons and challenges (it’s like Downsizing bootcamp!)
  • LIFETIME access to the private class forum
  • Accountability, support, motivation and camaraderie from me and your classmates
  • The tools you need to simplify your home, mind, and LIFE starting right now.

Here’s how the class works:

Once a week, you receive the lesson for the week. You can work on the course material at your own convenience throughout the week. Lessons include actions, tasks, challenges, reading, and more. There are no “live” calls that you must attend, since we are all in different time zones (and there are people in the class from all over the world!). Then, you have 24/7 (LIFETIME) access to the private class forum so that you can connect with your peers and myself, ask questions, get support and motivation, share successes, and meet people who share your ideas, values, and goals. The forum is my favorite part and the class agrees!

“”This class has single-handedly changed my thinking and life. The email course is rocking my world with the “how” to do this, the access to the associated group forum is invaluable. You could lurk and never post with this group and it’ll change your thinking and life.” – Andrea Mortensen

I love getting to know everyone through their journeys. We’re all here with you along for the ride! It’s amazing to see people making such REAL, TANGIBLE (and quite honestly very IMPRESSIVE) changes in their lives as a result of doing the class with a group of newfound friends. Last session, we had one woman quit her unhappy job in order to pursue more creative endeavors, right after reading a particular lesson! We’ve seen class members sell their homes, move into tiny homes and RVs, hit the road, and find real freedom in the span of 8 weeks. I’ve witnessed group members leave corporate life to volunteer full-time and work with animals, all made possible by radical downsizing. Each person’s story is unique, and it’s a real honor to be able to see all these people make courageous changes in real time. And you don’t have to have solid plans to “go tiny” to do the class – we have many people in the class just there to reclaim some sanity in their homes, minds and lives.

Downsizing is HARD. But you don’t have to do it all alone.

I went from living in a cluttered, messy, out of control 1500 sq. ft., into my 100 sq. ft. vintage trailer, and then into my 35 sq. ft. Honda Element micro-camper (that we designed and built) and it took me years to accomplish. It’s an ongoing process. It requires you to think critically and intentionally about what you want your life to look and feel like, instead of just going through the motions of work-sleep-spend money-repeat. 99% percent of the people you meet won’t accept the challenge.

Will you?

You can join us in the next session of the Tiny Transition and Downsizing E-Course by registering here. Class begins on October 5th. I hope to see you there!

The World Is Catching on to the Tiny House Movement

There’s a tiny house movement worldwide that aims to reduce carbon footprints and greenhouse emissions.  Some of the homes are as small as 70 square feet.  Most are under a thousand square feet, but are designed so well that they feel cavernous to those accustomed to larger dwellings.  Learn more about space-saving and compact living from this info graphic.” – The Tiny House Movement [Infographic].

Tiny House Nation Premieres Tonight, Wednesday, July 9 at 10pm ET

In “Tiny House Nation,” renovation experts and hosts, John Weisbarth and Zack Giffin, travel across America to show off ingenious small spaces and the inventive people who live in them, as well as help new families design and construct their own mini-dream home in a space no larger than 300 square feet…  “Tiny House Nation” is not a typical design show, but one that proves size doesn’t always matter – it’s creativity that counts.” – A+E Networks

Look for the show on the FYI Network (formerly BIO).  Story via A+E Networks – Life is Entertaining.
