    replied to Hello Self-Storage Talk!
    Hi Kortney, welcome. What should you know about the industry? In a nutshell, you have to be a bit crazy to be in this industry and it's not for the faint of heart as it will eat you up if you're not careful.

  • Storman, I've done the same with anyone who set my spidey senses on point.
