One of these days, I'm gonna write that novel...

Self-storage is not really one of those industries you dream of working in from childhood. In fact, I'd be willing to bet that a lot of present-day storage professionals have no idea how they ended up here. I certainly don't. I thought I'd end up as an English professor, or a book-publishing mogul, or—please, oh, please!—a successful novelist. Sure, "hot-shot magazine editor" was certainly among ...

Ode to Prerogative

OK, OK. I know I said I was going to further my commentary on this affiliation business and Tron's blog, etc. But it's Friday, for crying out loud, and I just don't feel like being cantankerous today. (Isnt' that a great word?) The weather is gorgeous in Arizona right now, and all I really want to think about is hopping on the V-Star with my brand-new bat-wing backpack (received as a gift for ...

Tron wrote a very thoughtful response to my post, which you might want to check out. More here later, as I can't ...

Self-storage unwanted? Unbelievable!

Ahhh, Thursday. Thursdays feel good, even better than Fridays. Why? Because there's nothing like sitting on the cusp of something really promising.

This is what happens when I drink too much coffee and ...

Up and Rollin' on the Webinar Tip

Man. Whew! One down, one to go. We conducted the first-ever Inside Self-Storage webinar this morning: A sampler for one of our upcoming Las Vegas seminars. Yours truly in the moderator seat. Overall, I think it went pretty well. Once I got past the "must keep Pop Tart in stomach" portion of the event, it was smooth sailing. What can I say? I was bubbling over with excitement. Attendance was lower ...

How sweet it is...

I've just returned from a five-day vacation to find the new blog is operational—sweeeeeet. And I'm enjoying the fact that today is also Valentine's Day, which is detested by many as one of the most commercialized holidays of the year. So few people know the true story behind this day. If you're interested, you can check out my editor's letter in the February issue of the mag. As for me, bring on ...
