Nickel and Dimed

I recently just finished reading this book:

"Funny, poignant, and passionate, this revelatory firsthand account of life in low-wage America - the story of Barbara Ehrenreich's attempts to eke out a living while working as a waitress, hotel maid, house cleaner, nursing-home aide, and Wal-Mart associate - has become an essential part of the nation's political discourse."

So, what does this book have to do with mobile home investing? Plenty.

It goes into detail the psychology and the work involved for low wage working class folks across America. Who are these people? To me, they are considered customers in the world of mobile home investing.

In the book, the search for affordable housing seems to be a re-occurring theme. Let's face it - there will always be low wage jobs in America and in turn a need for affordable housing. This is where mobile homes come into play.

In any business, you must know your customers - know what their wants and needs are. It's important to know the kind of psychology involved with your customers in any business.

This book will give you a glimpse of the working class world - a world that is intertwined and directly connected to affordable housing and the world of mobile home investing.
