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 ...

Confessions of A Not-So-Secret Buffy Fan

A guest blog spot by ISS Associate Editor Elaine Foxwell. Guilty pleasures ... Aw, c’mon guys ... admit you have them! One of my friends rents a Jaguar for a week.

I have four kids in the school, so when I was asked to run for a position, I felt obligated. I didn’t realize what I was getting into. I thought attending one meeting per month wasn’t a huge commitment, considering I was helping shape the future education ...

What I learned in today's Legal Learning ...

During today's Legal Learning Webinar, I discovered a few new things about self-storage bailments, which was enlightening, and a few old things about human nature, which was disappointing. I'll explain. But first, by way of disclaimer, let me share this quote by one of my favorite writers, Anais Nin: "We don't see things as they are, we see things as we are."

Sweet Summer Marketing

Marketing ideas for self-storage facilities are a frequent topic in this "conversation," in part because it's such a large component of what I do for Inside Self-Storage these days, but also because storage operators are having to be more savvy and creative in this area. So I watch to see what tactics different companies are using and share them in the blog. You never know: One of these fresh ...

Playing in the Big Blue Wet Stuff

A guest blog spot by ISS Associate Editor Elaine Foxwell. I admit, I don’t swim, never learned, don’t like being in the water. Drowning is an issue! But I love water sports ... as long as I'm on top of the wet stuff. I crossed "the pond" on the HMS Ivernia; I've been white-water rafting a few times (only up to Class IV, but lotsa excitement); and I've enjoyed ocean sailing. I just don’t like to ...
