Is there a “secret” to success?
It’s a question tens of thousands in manufactured housing, and millions beyond our industry, want to know more about.
Yes, there is a secret, but it’s no secret says Michele Tafoya, Sideline Reporter for NBC Sunday Night Football.
Tafoya shares the secret…that millions already know.
“Countless books, seminars, and gurus promise to teach you the “secrets” to success,” says Tafoya in this Praeger U video.
“Well, here’s my secret: There are no secrets to success. Actually, it’s pretty simple. Want to excel in whatever you do? Get to work. Keep working. And don’t stop until the job is done. That’s called “work ethic,” Tafoya says with a smile.
“I had my first real job at 13. I was a papergirl,” said Tafoya in the video posted below. “I delivered newspapers to people’s homes and sold subscriptions door-to-door. That job taught me persistence. I learned that to succeed, especially in sales, you have to knock on a lot of doors.”
One short personal story at a time, Tafoya tells an authentic tale of the skills required for success.
- Never quit.
- Keep working.
- Don’t look down at any legitimate job.
- Failure can lead to success.
Those qualities and others that Tafoya names are so common sense to some, but may need to be reinforced for others.
In the manufactured housing industry, where opportunities are all around you, but misunderstandings, unlevel playing fields and stereotypes abound, her story is always a timely one. The obstacles manufactured home professionals and investors face are opportunities in disguise.
For those who honestly serve and do what it takes to make it so, the potential in manufactured housing rivals or surprises other industries. Who says? Just listen to the statistics on the need for affordable housing. Then, do what Tafoya said. Get to work. ## (Inspirational, analysis, and commentary.)
