The Inside Self-Storage World Expo, April 14-17 at The Mirage Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, will feature a keynote address focused on achieving financial independence through smart investing. “Moving Into Freedom: How Self-Storage Saved My Financial Future (and Can Save Yours, Too)” will be presented by AJ Osborne at 8 a.m. on April 15. The session is open to all attendees and exhibitors.
Osborne, who owns and operates 12 Keylock Storage facilities across the Northwest through Bitterroot Holdings, was diagnosed with Guillain-Barré Syndrome two years ago. He’ll share how his self-storage investments allowed him to maintain financial stability for his family.

Osborne has been active in the self-storage industry since the early 2000s. In addition to contributing articles to industry trade magazines, he shares his industry strategies and systems through his podcast and YouTube channel, “Self Storage Income.”
