    Very self motivated. I love patting myself on the back. Being allowed to run the business like I own it is a biggee. The buck stops here.

    A big motivation is the owner telling his son, who is a great guy, to leave me alone when it comes to running the place.

      My dad raised us to give 110% in all we do.

          My folks raised me to do my best. If that means climbing on the roof because something is wrong, I'll do it. If that means picking up the slack because they've not assigned maintenance for a month and a half-then I'll do it (will I complain, probably,).
          If that means going out to a tenant's car so they can avoid getting drenched by the cold rain, I am more than happy to do it. Because that's the way I was raised, and in turn, raised my kids the same way.
          I will go that extra mile.

              Motivation to do a great job is self induced from my upbringing

              Motivation to stay with employer comes from appreciation, respect and money from the owner

                Money???
                Money motivates me!
                LOL

                My Mother raised all 5 of her children a very strong work ethic.
                In fact, I can still hear her saying, oh you broke your leg and now it is in a cast, you can still go to work, you sit a desk!
                We were also taught that if we were to dig ditches for a living, dig the best ditch you can and if you scrub toilets for a living, scrub them till they shine!

                In storage I do enjoy helping all of my clients.
                I do enjoy taking control of their storage needs, assuring them the unit is the correct size and their belongings will be safe at my location!

                Doing a good job and being able to provide a service to the community is a motivator and I still like cold hard cash!

                Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can do today.

                    If you would have done:

                    Cash/Currency
                    Coffee
                    Chocolate

                      Knowing I did the right thing for both my company/investor AND my client.
                      Sharing business cards for a company that the client has stated they needed information for.
                      Seeing a smile on a person's face when they leave who came in very stressed.
                      Throw kindness around like Confetti - But don't get glitter in your eyes!

                        Being the owner with a heavy cash investment, I am motivated to be the best employee I have. Coffee helps too.
