    Since I am by myself, except for when the maint man is here, I am constantly working against my last year's numbers. Every single morning I review the overnight close that will compare current to last year(s) at a glance. I have goals I set for myself on a daily basis. Zero vacancies-done it. Zero receivables-done it. Higher numbers than last year-done it. New systems explored-done it.

    Last but not least, realize that I get older every day and cannot do some things that I used to be physically able to do and therefore realize my limitations-accept this hourly.

    Checking this forum every day is a big plus that I did not see in the article. Members here are lucky for the help.

      Such a great article!!! And I am shocked to see that I do "most" of them. I would add: interact on a personal level with your customers. Be friendly, humble, helpful. My tenants adore me, and I them. It's because I go out of my way to get to know them, remember them, and interact every time whether on the phone or in person. People like to be treated like people. Just sayin.....

        I know I am politically incorrect but how about a minefield, I detest thieves. The cable thing would be your best bet my bosses other business was broken in and they now have it, seems to have stopped the stealing.

        Thanks pacnwstorage, I think I'm over-thinking about it lol. It does make sense. I know we have had issues with other tenants in the past where we have had 2 people on a contract, before I started....

        Not here, in 23 years. Especially in the last 5.5 years the security is tighter and tighter. I don't just live here and work in an office. This whole facility is my home and so far, due diligence has remained at the fore...
