In his new book, “The Investors Guide to Growing Wealth in Self Storage: The Step-By-Step Playbook for Turning a Real Estate Asset Into a Thriving Self Storage Business,” AJ Osborne teaches readers how to identify investment opportunities, allocate capital, and leverage management expertise to turn a mom-and-pop real estate asset into an income-producing venture.
