Â When I took on this position, I didn’t know much about the self storage business. I had attended a few storage auctions but that was pretty much my knowledge of the industry. Then a friend of mine thatÂ had an interestÂ in a storage facility asked me if I would be willing to try managing a facility he was a partner in and as I had been laid off from my previous position, it seemed like the perfect opportunity for me. I thank the powers that be each and every day for opening this door for me. I really do love my job!
Now I know not many people can say that they love their job. And in this economy, where so many do not have a job, I know how fortunate I am. But I really enjoy what I do and the people I work with and for. Don’t get me wrong, I do have rough days. Especially when the temperature doesn’t get above 1 degree (yesterday)Â and I am out spreading ice melt!Â You see, I wear many hats. I am not just the office manager, I am in charge of maintenance, truck rentals, the janitor, the groundskeeper, sales & marketing and that just names a few! This is one of the many reasons why I love my job, I am never stuck doing the same thing day after day. In fact, I never know what I’ll be doing when I get to work each day.
So my wish for all of you today is that you find your dream job!
