TA Forsberg Makes Tiny Homes Come To Life | “Michigan Reimagined” with Chris Buck

A wider variety of housing options is something communities clamor for to remain competitive to attract new residents and to drive their economy. One housing variety that is becoming a bigger deal, is tiny homes.

Joining Chris to talk about a new neighborhood exclusively made up of Tiny Homes is the President of Forsberg Real Estate, Mr. Brent Forsberg!

Preparing to Open

Another workweek is coming to a close.  For many of us, it’s been over a month on the stay at home order.  I think everyone agrees even when we are allowed back onto job sites, and open the supply chain again things are going to be different.  Where do we go to find the answers to what difference is going to mean?  This past week our association has started putting together the tools we will all need to make the decisions regarding the safety of our teams, our families, and ourselves as we begin to prepare to open the economy.  

 

For me, the weekend is time to reflect, review my journal notes, work on my writing, spend some time with the kids, and review their work from the previous week.  Sunday evening, I reflect on what are the most important actions I need to accomplish to move my goals forward next week.  My purpose now is to make sure we have all the tools in place to make the largest economic impact my company can to help our region grow.

 

I hope this weekend brings a moment of joy and peace for you. I love the stories I have heard from members, connecting more with siblings, exploring hobbies, and exploring interests they hadn’t had time for.  Time is a precious gift.  I hope even in this time of uncertainty that you are able to find moments for personal growth and fulfillment.  Thank you as always for your words of encouragement, thoughtful emails, and always looking at how to find ways to help those around you.  This last week has continued to be an affirmation of why Greater Lansing is the best place to live in the country.

Local Gift Card

For those whose income hasn’t been interrupted, one of the best ways to help our local restaurants and boutique is to buy gift cards and use them in about 6 months or so.  Here is a good resource for Meridian Twp.

The HBA Lansing is setting up a series of Webinars to help our members and the companies that support them navigate the current Business Climate. The first one is in the next couple of days will be regarding unemployment options and potential funding options.
 
First, if you feel this would be helpful, reach out to Brent Forsberg or Cindy Kosloski.  Second, if you are  a subject matter expert willing to share your knowledge please let us know. This is not a sales tool, we are looking for experts willing to share information about the overall conditions and options.
 
This will end. It is up to us to make sure we are ready to get our region back to work. The focus of these will be best practices by you and your peers to help minimize the economic impact on our local companies. More on this soon!
