After the Great Recession, someone asked me, ‘What did you learn from it’? Well, number one, is fear!

 “But for us, the future is not custom, unfortunately. I love it, but there are just not enough peo- ple available. It’s not going to go away; it’s just not going to grow anymore. Our future growth will be in manufacturing, specialty services and distribution. I see great growth in thin, large for- mat, ultra-compact materials, and those who choose to learn it will do well, and those who don’t, will regret it.
“One final thing. Having a pas- sion for what you do will lead
you to success. What’s the old expression: ‘Do what you love and the money will follow’? We have a great industry, and it’s going to continue to morph, but it’s always going to be here, and if you are passionate about it, you will always have a future. But pay attention!”
