"My goal after graduating was that I wanted to keep wearing yoga pants and hoodies — I don't want a desk job, I don't want to wear a suit, I don't want a nine-to-five."
In 2007, Mina bought her first house, and the house needed a major renovation, and from her family, her mother Karen E Laine came to the rescue. Mina and her mother self-taught them about the renovation and Mina realized her passion in no time.

Later, when a casting agent discovered the mother-daughter duo via their Facebook page, she thought it was a joke. She recalled the moment in an interview as,
"She kept calling my cellphone, and I thought it was someone messing with me first and trying to get our business information. But then I heard it was [a casting agent] . . . and we started a conversation about whether it was something we'd be interested in. We were like, 'Sound's like a party. Let's do it!'"
Mina and her mother Karen filmed and sent the flip-cam clip to HGTV, and after the selection, a pilot got aired in May 2016. The show Good Bones became a hit show on HGTV and the second season of 12 episode telecasted from January 2017.
