Great job Doug. I was pleased to meet you and Ana in Dallas, at the Creonline workshop in March of last year. I’ve followed, and printed, most of your postings since then. Especially your "Community " articles.
It was one of your previous postings about the parks being full and the mangagers non-cooperative attitude where you lived; that caused me to see the light and move to where the parks are not full, and the mangagers appreciate the business. I remember you quoted one of your mentors (Jimmy Napier) as saying “Your’re not a tree, you don’t have roots, you can move”. That made a lot of sense to me, and so I moved. I now own a park about 45 miles from Jimmy Napiers’ hometown of Chipley, Florida and I hope to meet him someday.
You are rapidly becoming one of the highly appreciated posters on this board, you are joining Jimmy, and Lonnie Scruggs and Ray Alcorn, in sending out good profitable information on mobile homes, and mobile home parks, to those of us who can really use it.
And all this at such a young age too, My “baby boy” is considerably older than you. Regardless, I look up to you, and I respect your advice and your articles. I’m also very pleased to know that you are teaching financial literacy in the schools where it is so needed. Great job, Doug. Keep up the good work.
