Several years ago, about the time I purchased my first axiom gear, I sold custom modular homes into a niche market and things were pretty good for a while. We banked a fair bit of cash, bought a nice home, etc.
In 2014/15 the economy tanked and I was forced to choose between the life we had built here while things were good or starting over with the company 4 hours away.
I chose the safe bet and we stayed put.
Two years ago I was offered a similar position here with a new company but that quickly died as my competition cried wolf...I was too close to their sales territory and the factory pulled the plug on us.
Fast forward to two weeks ago and I received a formal letter from the first employer hoping I'd pick up and move the 4 hours previously mentioned.
I really miss the job. The people. The income potential.
The potential to design my next home, theater(s),etc.
Seems like a no brainer until we go back to we have a good life here, all except the income potential.
Theres is no chance to get anywhere near the income I had on my current career path.
Things have been pretty grim, not sure I can afford to mess anything up on a gamble.
So, anonymity (false sense, lol) out the window, would you start over knowing it could literally fall apart and you'd be 4 hours from home?

Hmm, tough choice. Is the question about living 4 hours away from home during the week and going home on weekends, or would you move to the new location completely ?

I don't know much about the business but at first glance it seems like the "tiny home" market might be redefining the "modular home" market. Just a thought.

Blair, you will always regret the things you didn't do. If this position will give you a renewed sense of purpose, it might be a good thing to do.

The offer is only good if I move.

Tiny homes are definitely on my radar. I've been watching the trend for a long time.

I love tiny homes but there's no tiny land!

Do you need to put in tiny speakers into a tiny home? Like do M22's look like M100 speakers in a tiny home? Would you need M1 speakers to be called bookshelf? Just wondering?

Those who buy tiny homes don't want encumbrances like speakers to deal with. I mean look at what happened with gmpirate. He wanted to move a set of speakers and that started a chain reaction that is forcing him to upgrade his home and his wife.

You can place multiple tiny homes on a city lot if you do it right.
Think I'd target in between. I'd like to fit 3 on a truck. Lol.
Can haul 16' wide into the new city.
Many if my former customers doubled this for 2280sq ft on 1 level.
