May 20, 2019

Do you believe that by creating a space that inspires you, your life will launch from there? These were words of wisdom given to our guest, Morgan Molitor, and she’s taken that advice to heart and continues to design a life that lights her up.

Not only have Morgan and her husband, Jamie, created an inspirational space for their family, but they also help others express themselves by creating spaces that feel good to them. “You need to make your happy place in your home, no matter if it’s on-trend, no matter if it’s other people’s style, do your own style.”

She and Jamie started a DIY blog, construction2style, in 2012, and since then their blog has evolved into a full-service design and build interior residential and small media company based in Minnesota.

In this episode, you’ll hear how Morgan and Jamie’s blog launched into a full-time husband & wife team, how to be more transparent with your clients, tips to create a space that speaks to who you are, and how to listen to your audience and give them what they need. I admire Morgan and Jamie’s work and am so excited for you to hear their story. So grab a cup of coffee and listen in.
