    Does your ownership/management company offer you learning opportunities? This might include in-house training, online courses or covering the costs of an industry tradeshow.

    No, no offers.
    But I would think that if any of us asked, we could work something out.

      None offered here or needed. As far as they are concerned I am to run the facility like I own it.

        I have been sent to Vegas twice to attend the trade show, Been to the one in Seattle about 4 times and they paid for me to become a Certified Self Storage Manager. Now my building is up for sale and they have a buyer so I will be able to use that information somewhere else.

          Yes and they encourage us to find training opportunities and I attend the self storage conferences & tradeshows when they are in Orlando. Also the Certified Self Storage Manager.

            What's involved in becoming a certified self storage manager?

                  Good feedback, I really like the Levitons and could see putting automation in place to handle it. I could use If this then that to turn on or off the outlet. The drawback is that the outlets all have a manual option to turn it on. I think using IFTTT can just shut it off it detected every 5 min or...

                  I have some of them on my property. Each on a separate 20 amp breaker. I charge a $20 per month premium for the power. I have an automated kiosk for rentals but those units are blocked off in the management software so that you need to meet me to rent them.

                  That seems like a great idea-though place them somewhere they won't get damaged when a senior citizen inevitably knocks into one side of the other. I've had many phone calls for powered spaces so they can run dehumidifiers or a trickle charge for their battery....
