The holiday season may be over, but that doesn’t mean that the gift-giving has to stop. A self storage facility in Buchanon, Virginia, still wanted...

We’ve all heard it before from either a loved one, friend, teammate, or superior at work. They say they are going to do something, but then when it comes time to follow through they are full of excuses on why they can’t do whatever they promised to do. Business have been known to do the same, but there is one self storage company that certainly does not. A-1...

Reading is something that is essential to getting by in today’s world. Yes, you could guess a few things by the shape of the sign (i.e. a stop sign), but for the most part you are in trouble if you can’t read. Besides—it can be fun as well. Parents read to their kids all the time not only for developmental purposes, but because kids like listening to the story. As...

We live in a society that loves its cars and motorcycles. People give them pet names sometimes and even talk to them like they are people; like they might actually respond.  Often times life finds us spending more time with them than we do our loved ones.

Sometimes you just need to take a break. Sometimes it helps to just walk away, do something else, or just do nothing and take the time to recharge your proverbial batteries. You don’t necessarily have to be going through bad times. Even when things are going well it doesn’t hurt to take a step back so when you return refreshed and ready to do even better—like...

It sounds great, it endears the business to the community, and it helps get the company’s name out in a positive manner. Of course saying it and making it happen are two different things. It doesn’t just happen for the self storage industry though. It’s how business...

There comes a time where we all know someone that needs our help; or sometimes we could even be that person. During those times it can be nice to know that you are not alone; that someone out there cares and not necessarily because you are friends, but simply because caring for those in your community is the right thing to do. For many in the self storage industry being...

There are few things that can bring joy to the faces of the young and old alike quite like sports can. For kids playing on an organized sports team the thrill of victory experienced with your friends can create life time of memories. The trouble with youth sports though is that they do cost money for the kids to play and for the leagues to operate. So it’s a good...
