The Inside Self-Storage (ISS) Store is selling two new online courses for industry investors. Produced by Scott Meyers, who owns self-storage facilities through Kingdom Storage Holdings and operates the Self Storage Investing (SSI) online platform, “How to Make BIG Money in Self-Storage” and “Self-Storage Investing Course: Finding Private Money” are designed to help students evaluate facility acquisitions, access capital and grow a portfolio. Both offer exclusive pricing at $200 off the normal rate, available at iss-store.com.
“How to Make BIG Money” is a six-video course that teaches users to find and evaluate potential deals, fund acquisitions, manage new properties, and develop the proper mindset for success. Offered at $397, the sessions address why self-storage is a smart investment, how to analyze potential purchases, funding options, mistakes to avoid, critical steps for success, and a real-life case study.
“Finding Private Money,” is a 19-video course that includes everything in “Big Money,” plus 13 additional classes recorded during Meyers’ “The Private Money Summit.” Offered at $597, it teaches the basics of evaluating potential deals and explains how Meyers and his team secured seven-figure investment from private capital to help fuel their own self-storage ventures. The videos also go in-depth on how to source capital, covering crowdfunding, private retirement accounts, lenders, self-directed 401(k) and more.
The “Private Money” course also includes access to Valuator software, which allows users to analyze self-storage facilities and make realistic projections.
Meyers is principal of Kingdom, which focuses on the acquisition, development and syndication of self-storage facilities nationwide. His portfolio comprises more than 2.2 million square feet of self-storage in about 13,000 units. Meyers is also the founder of SSI, which provides online courses, education tools, live events and mentoring designed to help professionals launch their own storage businesses.
Meyers will be a featured speaker during the ISS Virtual Conference, April 28-29, presenting a seminar titled “How to Launch, Scale and Sustain a New Self-Storage Investment, Even in a Time of Crisis.” The 60-minute session will cover why launching a self-storage business during a crisis can be advantageous, how to find solid deals and pitch potential investors, smart ways to structure storage deals, investing pitfalls to avoid and strategies to grow a portfolio. After the live event, it’ll be available on demand through May 31.
