“And all the changes keep on changin
and the good old days, you know they’re gone.
And only wise men, and some newborn fools
say that they know what’s going on.”
~ Harry Chapin, Changes
“Then you better start swimming
or you’ll sink like a stone.
For the times, they are a-changin’”
~ Bob Dylan, The Times They Are A-changin’
Let’s face it, folks. The manufactured housing business as you once knew it is relic of the past. A memory, often cherished, but meaningless in today’s world.
The rapid pace of change in our industry and economy, and even our place in the world has left many of us stunned and disbelieving.
But change doesn’t stop because we can’t keep up with it. Those who fail to adapt to change will be swept away.
About the only thing we can guarantee is that the speed at which change comes at us will only tend to accelerate.
In turbulent times, when the earth seems to shift under your feet and you can’t seem to find an anchor to hold on to, you ned a source of information and interaction that can help you keep up with the changes going on around you.
Your state association is one example. State associations are doing their best to keep up and keep you informed. Make sure your membership is up-to-date and remember that for your association to best serve you, you need to be an active member.
Another great way to keep up is through MHMSM.com. At MHMSM.com, some of the most respected voices in the industry can be accessed as nowhere else. As an interactive media, MHMSM.com gives you the opportunity to actively participate in the debate.
As old doors close, new ones open. Will you be there to see what is behind those new doors?
To quote Bob Dylan again,
“Your old road is rapidly agin’
Please get out of the new one
If you can’t lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin’.”
