Only veteran self storage owners know this tremendous self storage benefit

Updated: Dec 3, 2023

By Marc Goodin, CEO of Storage Authority, the only self storage franchise.

We get in self storage to make a pile of money. But there is also a benefit at least equal to the good money. The benefit is that self storage makes you healthy.

You may be smiling and asking how is that possible. Heres how:

1) Stress is a killer. I remember always being stressed out due to my engineering career. Always deadlines, staff to take care of bills to pay.....etc. All gone due to self storage.

2) Eating bad is a killer. Every day On the way to the DD drive-through and ordered a coffee and one donut - sometimes 2 donuts. As I recall there is no protein in donuts - only bad unhealthy fat.

3) Self storage allows you and your family to eat right for 2 reasons. You can eat all the great food and not give it a second thought. Fruits, vegetables, steak, you name it.

4) It takes time to exercise. I never had the time while working from 8 until dark, 6 days a week. Now I have the time to walk for 1 hour each morning. (5 Miles, 10,000+ steps a day) It keeps me and shape and helps keep the stress levels way down. And I also work out from home for 20 minutes to help keep the rest of my body in tip-top shape. I just read that for every hour you exercise you will live and

5) I have not manually paid a bill in years. Every single one is on auto-pay. Not worrying one second about money is surely healthy and also good for your marriage. Every once in a while my wife will ask me if she should buy xy or z. I have no idea why she keeps asking as I always give the exact same answer: why not buy two?

6) It is no longer a problem if it rains on the weekend. I can go fishing any day of the week or every day if I choose. I am sure happiness is good for the health.

Sand heart on the beach with roses.
Time to spend with family & friends plus time to do a few crazy things is another side benefit of self storage

Let's Crush it!
