She later enrolled herself in the University of Indiana for her higher education, and in 2007, she graduated with a degree in sociology and business.

After she graduated from university, Mina started working as a waitress to pay for her bills. She also worked part-time in a rental estate office. When trying to figure out what to pursue in life, she took the plunge of purchasing a house for $37,500.
Mina teamed up and took the help of her mother for the renovation of the newly purchased home. It was during this process of renovation that the daughter-mother duo found their true calling – renovating houses. This is when the inception of their company, “Two chicks and a hammer,” came into being. Their company was running successfully, completing more than 20 home renovation projects in and around Indianapolis. Seven years into their business, a production company, High Noon Entertainment, contacted them about doing their work into a reality TV show. There has been no looking back ever since they signed on the agreement. Hence, in 2015, the genesis of HGTV’s reality show on home renovations called “Good Bones” happened. On 22 March 2016, the first episode of “Good Bones” premiered on HGTV, and ever since, the show has garnered about 15 million viewers.

The book is a light, easy-breezy read and filled with humor and endearing moments. “Built together” talks about the diversity of families and illustrates how and what makes each family unique.
The most recent feather under her cap would be the launch of her store in 2020 in Indianapolis. The store “Two chicks District co.” collaborates with her business partner, her mother, Karen E. Laine. This recently launched store is an extension of their renovation business, wherein they sell home décor products. Their store hosts a range of exclusive and classy home décor furnishings, which draws inspiration from the duos’ sophisticated signature styles.
