A High- Performance Team = Larger Profits

By Ed Clement

"Your Self Storage Planning - Site Selection - Design-Build" by Marc Goodin

Chapter 20


How do you:

Reduce Your Risks

Save Time & Money During Construction

Increase Your Monthly Profits,

Protect Your Investment,

And Add Value for Your Customers?


By having the best of the best High-Performance Team on your side from day one. Team up with the experts to maximize your profits and protect your investment.

As Seth Godin recently pointed out in a recent blog (below), it is time to be Smarter.

How much is “smarter” worth?

No new costs, no new machines, no new resources. Just smarter. Smarter about the process, about the effects, about planning. Smarter about leadership, management, about measurement. How much is smarter worth? In my experience, smarter is almost always a bargain, something you can buy for a lot less than it's worth.

Have you seen The Profit on TV (just after Shark Tank)? Then you have heard Marcus talk about the three important things you must have for a great business: Product, Process, & People. And in reality, if you have the right people the other two things will fall in line. A High-Performance Team is the one thing that is going to help you with all three of these things. Of course, Marcus is the key to the team because he knows how to execute. Along with providing the tools you need to succeed, Storage Authority® will provide their secret sauce, how to put everything together and execute, for a winning business.

As part of its systems platforms, checklists, and manuals, Storage Authority® has put together the best of the best High-Performance Self Storage Team of approved vendors for franchise owners. They include everything from Architects, Contractors, lenders, marketing and sales experts to website developers and so much more. Give me a call, I would love to share our vendors with you.

Storage Authority® provides Franchisee introductions to trusted vendors we love to use. They include lenders, architects, Contractors, feasibility study experts, Property and tenant insurance agents, sign companies, legal and self-storage lease experts, Management programs, security, gate, kiosk, pay-per-click, moving & packing suppliers, moving trucks, promotional items, Auctions, self-directed retirements consultants, building manufactures, office signage and more.

We have chosen them after extensive research and individual meetings and discussions. Our Storage Authority® Franchise owners use them because they are the best of the best, they understand self-storage profits, and their programs work extremely well with both the high-tech and high-touch requirements to be a premier facility today. Not only are they the front runners today, but they are always improving their products to serve us and help keep us ahead of the competition.

Not only do they have great products and service, but they also have outstanding customer service. This has always been important to me. Did you know that when calling customer service for many management programs and gate/security systems you have to put in a ticket and wait for them to call you back in hours (even days)? Getting stuck with the wrong vendor can cost you a lot of time and money.

Personal Story

Before I even finished construction on my first self-storage facility I had well over 100 people tell me they were planning on building a self-storage in town. Since that time, I had thousands more people (friends, coworkers, contractors, acquaintances, and even strangers) tell me that I beat them to the punch. Now, many years later, not one of them has built a self-storage and I built and own three facilities. Why? It is simple. One day I said yes and took the first step. I know in the beginning it is going to require a leap of faith, but with one step at a time, you will make it happen. If you have a dream and take action, the facts don’t count. Make a decision, get started, and enjoy the journey.

We would love to be a part of your High-Performance Team!

Catch Your Dreams!

To Your Self-Storage Success!
