Pitcher’s Predicaments

A guest blog spot by ISS Associate Editor Elaine Foxwell. Pitcher’s predicaments ... No, I'm not talking about the pitcher’s mound in baseball of which I know nothing (Hello! Hockey fan here). My pitching occurs when I phone people about the Inside Self-Storage Annual Top Operator’s List. And when I do this, I'm sometimes privy to other’s predicaments. I enjoy this part of my job perhaps because ...

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.

Contract Anxiety

A guest blog spot by ISS Managing Editor Drew Whitney. This year I made a political leap and was voted into my local elementary school board. 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."
