Dear Friends,

This may be a long but I know, for a couple of you, it will change your life.

I have shared the secretes of self storage wealth with many people and of course my best friend. As the new year rolls out I want to take the time to let you know You Can Do It! Many people are going to start their self storage empire in 2017. WHY NOT YOU? WHY NOT NOW?


Well simple put only 1 to 3% of the people are ever going to be ready to do their own thing. That’s ok. But if your in that 3% I wanted to take the time today to share the 3 steps to get started.

Just as important there are a ton of people always stuck on the fence so I am first going to share a story. I hope this will help you get off the fence on one side or the other.

25 years ago I asked my best friend if he wanted to start a civil engineering business with me. He said it was to risky and he took an engineering job with the state. I enjoyed being my own boss and all the rewards it brought me and my family. I built a very successful engineering business and sold it when I retired 10 years ago. About 12 years ago I asked the same best friend if he wanted to build a self storage with me. He said it sounds like a good idea but he wanted to see how it worked out. I built it and it helped me make the decision to retire 2 years later.

About three years later I asked him if he wanted in on my second self storage. He said he did not want to risk his 2 kids college fund. Well we both spend close to $150,000 putting our kids through college. The difference is my friend is still working 8 – 5 and will continue to work to 65. Hopefully he will have time to save up a nest egg again. He is one of the lucky ones who will also get a state pension.

Now on the other hand I took my savings, took advantage of the banks money and invested in self storage. Self storage paid for my kids college and keeps paying me every year and will put millions in my bank account when and if I ever sell. Now of course everyone tells me how lucky I am. And indeed I am because I am having a blast and enjoying everyday.. I am offering you the opportunity to join us and be just as lucky as me!

So why not take the challenge and get started now. Here are the three steps to kick start your self storage future:
