Holly Robinson (no, not Holly Robinson-Peete - the Autism advocate/actress/model/athlete's wife) works as a "staging expert" for a national real estate company, who has recently moved from a fast-paced metropolitan area to a slower-paced suburbia. In her spare time she keeps an online journal of the differences in these two worlds, and how she manages to keep a toe hold in each. Her topics often include "what you can live without" and "life's must-haves," - life simplification without sacrifice - which she has learned through her profession.

It takes a special person to be willing to lay their life on the line for someone else. There really isn’t a bigger sacrifice that someone can make for another. In some relationships it is almost expected, i.e. parent and child. However, there are a group of people that are willing to put their life on the line for total strangers and often for people that may not...

Everyone is aware of what guilt by association is. Hang around the wrong crowd that gets involved in illegal things and you’ll be guilty right along with them whether you did anything or not. The same holds true for a positive affiliation. Politicians are quick to jump on board of popular legislation as co-sponsors in the hopes that they will get a little good press...

Supporting your community is a commendable act whether you’re a business, an athletic team, a random group of people, or an individual.

Sometimes the chance becomes available at a place of business...

It is not common that one is able to go about conducting business in a normal fashion and be able to help combat an issue that is affecting a large portion of society at the same time. Many companies are more than happy to do what they can to help anyway, but it is rare that all they have to do is go about business as usual to actually be able to.

Politicians love to promise one thing to their constituents more than anything else—change. They do not always specify whether that change will be good or bad, but they do promise that it will happen.  One change that has been proposed by lawmakers in Georgia will mean a little more work for self storage facility operators, but could also mean an increase in...

Work is not necessarily meant to be a loud of laughs. It does not wait for you to decide to grace it with your presence; it has to get done with or without you regardless of how pleasant or unpleasant the work environment is. That being said, the better your work environment is the more likely your people will want to come to work. They more they come to work, the better...

There is one way to insure that your business is going to be healthy enough to stick around, a consistent number of customers. If you have at least a base number that you can count on than you know that you will at least be bringing ‘X’ amount of revenue every month.  When you at least have that base level then you can decide how aggressive you need to...

One thing that kids don’t really think too much about is where things come from that they need or use on a daily basis. The vast majority of things of course are provided by Mom and Dad, but what about all the things that the community provides (parks, library, etc) or what if Mom and Dad are not able to do all the things they would like to for their kids? That is...

There comes a time in every business effort where you will find that you are in dire need of new customers. For the self storage industry that could mean that you recently had a number of customers move out for whatever reason or maybe you were able to add on to your current structure and are now having trouble filling your new units. Finding new customers will of course...

For years there has been talk about the nation trying to break its dependence on foreign oil. With gas prices near or above the three dollar mark for the last few years there are more and more people becoming interested in electric cars. The need for alternative forms of energy reaches far beyond the automobile industry though. In a down economy like the United States...
