On Ogling, Googling and Chickens

[A guest blog spot by ISS Managing Editor Drew Whitney.] There was a time when competitors looking to see what “the other guy” was doing would check the ad in the phone book and then give the site a call and pretend, best they could, that they were prospective tenants inquiring about units and pricing. Hanging up, callers likely felt a little like Columbo and a lot like fourth-graders making ...

Funny Farm

A guest blog spot by ISS Managing Editor Drew Whitney. You’ll probably think I’m crazy when I tell you I wanted to raise chickens. After the last month, I’d almost agree. As with keeping anything precious (and as any self-storage veteran should know) safekeeping is sometimes the hardest part. This was my lesson. The idea was sparked by my friend, Nancy Leary, who asked us to feed the cat and her ...

New World Storage

Several weeks ago, we posted a guest blog from a gentleman who is embarking on a journey to build one of Moscow's first self-storage facilities. Just last week, I read an article in The Moscow Times about KeySpace Self Storage, which is putting the finishing touches on a Moscow facility of its own. Seems like the Russian capital is on the fast-track to storage expansion.And this is often how ...

Legal Learning Revisited

Looking for something to do this weekend, something both entertaining and edifying?

It's an hour of life that could save your business money, time and grief down the pike. As promised (and previously discussed in this ...
