Setting the Manufactured Housing World on Fire

Too often, the world – as well as large numbers in our MH Industry – are willing to settle for second, third or fourth best. Too often mediocrity – or an apathetic acceptance of some status quo – are the norm. The problem is that such thinking and behavior are self-limiting.

As a thought-provoking, inspirational antidote to accepting mediocrity – or second, third or fourth place finishes – we share the following quotes.

Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.”
