Sissy Goes Tiny by Rebecca Flansburg and BA Norrgard
A diverse picture book about a family that chooses to live Tiny and do More with Less.
**This project was supported by Five Wings Arts Council with funds from the McKnight Foundation.
Eight-year-old Sissy loves her life. She loves her toys, her Big house, and her Big backyard. But when Sissy’s parents decide they are going to live in a Tiny House on wheels and travel around the U.S., Sissy isn’t sure that she will like the idea of “living tiny.” But as she and her mommy and daddy learn about downsizing, repurposing, and how “stuff is just stuff” in a positive way, Sissy soon understands that living Tiny has BIG possibilities; possibilities for all sorts of adventures and learning.
Written by Rebecca Flansburg and BA Norrgard, both Minnesotans (who have been friends for over 30 years), Sissy Goes Tiny was created to share the idea and process of “going Tiny” from a child’s perspective. Go HERE to learn the story behind the book, why we wrote this unique book with some pretty special messages, and how Sissy got her name.
Beautifully illustrated poignant story about going tiny through the eyes of an 8-year-old! Sissy loved her big house and her big life. When she was told they were going to move to a tiny house on wheels, she was understandably a bit concerned. But her parents explained that they could travel and live wherever they wanted and would trade possessions for experiences. As Sissy and her parents purged their possessions and repurposed their things, Sissy started to get excited and it made her feel good that her donations would make other families happy! Sissy was ecstatic when their new tiny home finally arrived and fell in love with it immediately!~Amazon reviewer
MOM BOSSING: The Freedom to Create the Business You Love is a book filled with personal stories, resources, support, wisdom, and encouragement from a solopreneur who has been in the trenches as a mom boss. This step-by-step guide shares the truth, fears, tears, and cheers of being a mom who is building a business empire on her own terms. If you are looking for a new career for the “second half of life,” venturing into direct sales, rocking a home business, or dreaming of leaving a dead-end job, this book provides the building blocks needed to move forward with a healthy dose of humor authenticity. In many ways, this book could also sport the tagline of Building a LIFE on Your Own Terms.
I was lucky to have Becky Flansburg join us at Multicultural Children’s Book Day when we first began our nonprofit. She was the “head elf” which meant she did everything from project management to help us get sponsorships. In the early years, we weren’t able to keep her busy for more than a few months a year and even that was very part-time. Becky’s contribution to the team helped us grow our nonprofit, and, in turn, we were able to keep her busier. Now, as a “mom boss,” Becky is sharing her journey and her wisdom for moms who want to try solopreneurship. It’s particularly helpful for anyone who wants to become a VA (Virtual Assistant).~author and mompreneur, Mia Wenjen

Working from home and telecommuting is at an all-time high. Many are loving the freedom and flexibility while others are struggling to find a system of organization that works for them. So if your workspace chaos is getting worse by the day, this e-book will act as a guide to help folks make heads or tails of the daily disaster they call “their office.” During my three decades working in the office products industry, I became very adept at helping business people organize their workspace without breaking the bank. Contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t take half of a UPS load of organizing bins, racks, holders, and organizers to tame the chaos on your desk.
As an adult who struggles with anxiety, I’ve known for years that an increase in clutter and chaos in my world causes my “distraction factor” to double. But since I’ve become home-based, I’ve found that having the office clutter co-mingling with my regular home clutter ends up sending my anxiety into hyper-drive. It wreaks havoc on my productivity, attention span, and even my moods.
Through trial, error (and wisdom in general) I’ve fine-tuned a myriad of products, habits, and lifestyle benefits that help stay on track. They also assist me in making the best use of my office space and time while amping up creativity and work efficiency.
