Moving Oasis, Inc.

Nathalie Canate and Lillie Mysel, the pioneering duo behind Moving Oasis, embarked on an extraordinary journey that transformed their passion for adventure and freedom into a thriving business. Moving Oasis, redefined travel by offering a lifestyle wrapped in the embrace of freedom and flexibility. Campervans became their canvas, enabling individuals to break free from the conventional and explore the world at their own pace. Fueled by a shared vision of liberation, Nathalie and Lillie set out to create an all-encompassing experience. Their campervan rentals and conversions, designed to be completely off-grid and sustainable, became a beacon for wanderers seeking a taste of unbounded living.

"People crave the freedom to roam," Nathalie remarked, highlighting the allure of living in a camper van. "It's a lifestyle where one day you wake up amidst mountains and the next day, you're lounging by the beach."

Their vans, both luxurious and versatile, offered a spectrum of experiences. From short-term rentals for vacations to serving as permanent homes, these compact marvels became a gateway to affordable living. Savings ranging from $55,000 to $100,000 annually lured individuals away from the confines of traditional rent to the liberating embrace of van life.

The journey from an idea to a flourishing business wasn't solitary; it was nurtured by the Small Business Development Center (SBDC). The guidance and mentorship provided by SBDC transformed their aspirations into a tangible reality.

"We were novices in the world of business," Lillie reminisced. "Our mentor (Annette Gray), within a week, amplified our vision, guiding us through the labyrinth of business logistics, legalities, and marketing strategies."

Annette not only facilitated the technicalities but became a pillar of support, fostering belief and community. What began as a small idea evolved into a burgeoning enterprise, proving that dreams, with the right guidance and dedication, can flourish into triumphant success stories.

Today, Moving Oasis stands tall, a testament to the fusion of dreams and determination. Nathalie and Lillie, once dreamers envisioning a world of boundless exploration, now extend a helping hand to others aspiring to achieve their dreams.

As the sun sets on each day, Moving Oasis continues to inspire, beckoning dreamers to embrace a life painted in the hues of adventure and possibility. Their success story, etched with the ink of passion and nurtured by the embrace of SBDC, serves as a beacon of hope for those seeking to carve their path in the world of entrepreneurship.
