My Journey in Self Storage

My journey in self storage in under 3 minutes!

Hey, it's jim on this one. I'm going to give you the three minute version of my journey and self storage here. I started back when I was 20 years old. I was living in portland at a time, playing in my rock band and back then my brother who was working in the industry.

And he's like, hey, I got a site you want to run it? And cool band broke up. I moved back here to salt lake city, and I ran a location there for well, about a year at that one location going to school and another opportunity opened up at another location that was too far away.

Took that one lived on that property. Got married, in the meantime. So, we lived in that property lot larger, and I ran my previous site at a satellite locations, so I was running two locations.

There's a lot of work. I learned a lot. Ah, lot of this stuff, I kind of learned by necessity. That's kind of what i'm bringing to you in your segments here. Anyway, long story short went from there, started being a regional manager, are running a lot of locations in the western united states.

During that time, at the height of storage wars, I started an auction company. If you google excel, self storage auctions, problems still see some videos and stuff with me doing that.

It was a lot of fun. Again, we all know how to storage wars, how crazy it was, that was back. He was doing live auctions. This kind of before online auctions took over. So a lot of fun, uh, eventually from there from lots of reasons. I moved on from my position, and I ran my own property management company that was still going on.

I was under three mile domination for a while on the kind of rebranding everything. Now it's three miles storage, and along the same time I was doing that, i'd love to get back in the industry. It's how I learned as well.

So I started that, obviously, the self storage show podcast. That is great, you know, just getting introduced to everybody in the industry. Again, that's how I learned from everyone as well, asking questions, getting know him a lot of fun. So I learned as much as everybody else does, consuming it so it been a great experience on to keep doing that as well. Have hosted a couple large virtual self storage summits, both of them fantastic and learning experiences in of itself putting those together.

Those have been a great success, and i'll continue to do more of those virtual summits as well. So I guess my career industry continues to evolve, hopefully, it will involve ownership in a storage location that eventually that's that's the goals. Or we're working towards that, getting some ownership in some capacity.

I mean, while I continue to build up my management services and continued to bring out this kind of content and interviews with three miles storage segments and self storage show segments. So in the summit that will continue as well, so packed a lot in in that three minutes. But it's it's been a fun journey, and i'm gonna keep going. So thank you so much.
