“I woke up at 5am to drive to our 8am closing and was wondering do I really want to do this? But I trusted our training and followed through. We are on track to beat Moore’s law, doubling our units (or cash flow) every 18 months. Still a lot of work ahead, but at least we can drink wine in our office! (Not cool at my city job)”

“After attending the Self Storage Academy, my father David and I found a 115 unit, Bank owned Facility worth $600,000. We bought it for $310,000 and the Bank Financed the entire amount PLUS a new Gate System, and agreed to 4 months no payments at 4% for 20 years with a 10-year balloon!”


“I came to this event knowing that I was going to learn about self-storage, but it’s really beyond my wildest dreams, about the content, the plan, just the people that Scott surrounded himself with. So it’s been an absolute pleasure, and very gratifying. Would recommend to anybody.”


First of all, thank you so much for your guidance in helping me purchase my first self storage facility. Last year, I bought your home study course and attended the Self Storage Academy boot camp. These gave me all of the tools needed to solidify my first deal at age 23. Your attention to detail and consistent e-mail feedback provided guidance I need to help seal the deal.

The unique tactics taught at boot camp allowed me to find a solid property that best fit my personal needs. Upon purchasing the facility, one of your "no money down" techniques saved me thousands of dollars. I now enjoy the success of remotely managing my property and still live four hours from the facility. Your programs allowed me the resources to find solid leads, close deals, and manage my investment. I look forward to our continued partnership and using Self Storage Academy tactics in all future business. Thanks again!

"We live in a constant information exchange world and is very hard to stop our fast pace lives. To sit down, read and study while we keep searching for that ideal business opportunity that will change your and your family’s lives. However, that’s exactly what I founded the first time that I met Scott Meyers and decided to learn more about the Self Storage business. He is truly what a mentor should be. He is open to share his unlimited real experience as Self Storage entrepreneur, certified manager/operator and a real teacher – sharing tips and tricks with his students and helping them when they need it.

After taking the Home Study Course, I joined Scott’s group mentoring program. Upon my completion of the group mentoring, I decided to participate in his Mastermind Meeting. I thought I knew all there was to know and see, but one more time Scott exceeded my expectations. You must take action working on your mind set and also following the steps listed on all Scott’s programs. I’m now growing my Self Storage portfolio (working on securing my 3rd facility right now) and totally recommend Scott Meyers and his Mentoring Programs.

If you are still thinking about participating in the educational training programs with Scott Meyers; I can tell you that learning with Scott and taking action will definitely change your life! I’m sure we are going to meet at one of his future events and I would be happy to tell you my successful story. Take action and join our team to turn all your dreams into a wonderful and happy reality. "

"Using the education that Scott and his team gave me in the Self Storage Academy and Private Money Mastermind really helped me think more creatively about partnerships and the relationships in these property deals. I have used that knowledge to put together my first deal with a partner. The ongoing support and encouragement from Scott and his team have given me confidence to be able to find, analyze and close this deal. I am very excited about my future and the development of relationships with investors and partners, and I wouldn't be here without Scott's great systems."

"After attending the self storage academy Cody Babb and I were really charged up and got started looking to purchase our first facility together. Well as you know if you seek you will find. We as a team found a 20,800 sq ft REO that previously had a 600,000.00 note. We acted quickly and used techniques we learned from you. We located it around mid dec and closed dec 31. The bank that had the previous note finaced it and the purchase price was 310,000. We also asked them to install a gate system AT THEIR COST, and they agreed! Then We asked for 6 months no payments and no interest, and they declined, but agreed to 4 months no payments and a 4% rate amortized over 20 years with a 10 yr balloon. He also wrote us a promissory note for 620,000 for 4 mo to come up with down payment. There are 115 units with physical occupancy of 35% and the facility is less than 4 years old. It has an on site apartment, and we hired a mgr to run the facility in exchange for free rent.

Thanks so much for your training and guidance."

David & Cody Babb

"We purchased your home study course and attended the self storage boot camp in Las Vegas in January of this year. We came away from your boot camp ready to buy our first facility. We havee been in apartments for 10 years and although they have been good to us, we were ready to change from “tenants & trash” to something that wasn’t so labor or tenant intensive.

We looked on the internet at facilities that were for sale around Indina the next few months and visited several. We made an offer on April 1st on a 122 unit complex in northern Indiana. After a few days of negotiations (using your forms) we signed a purchase agreement and later closed on June 18th.

The Facility is less than 4 years old and is in excellent condition with 5+ acres so there is room for expansionl The economic occupancy was about 60% with a physical occupancy of 68%. The great thing is that the property pays all its expenses and payments at that occupancy rate, so as we rent the property up... profits will go through he roof.

Thanks so much for imparting all the knowledge we eneeded to get us a great start. We are looking forward to adding several more facilities to our portfolio as we continue to “wean”ourselves out of the apartment business.

Best wishes for your continued success!"

"We do residential – Buys, Flip's, & retail. We have businesses & restaurants. We've done about everything wrong. And we met Scott one day at another boot camp and heard him talk about “no toilets” and all the other headaches of being a residential landlord and found it very intriguing. So we followed him and we never looked back. By getting involved in Scott's Programs and everything he's helped us to stay focused and in short order we were able to buy our first self-storage facility.

When we got involved in the program, we were very short of time. We work all of the time, so they helped us sort out what was important. One was: we've always had a fear of purchasing real estate at a distance. But we know that you can get better bargains further away from where we live. So that was one of the parameters – that we could buy a commercial piece of property out of state where we didn't have to look at it day in and day out and handle it and it would be professionally managed. We were able to buy something out of state.

In essence they put you in a position where you are an investor and you have a team of people around you. They helped us fulfill something we were never able to do on our own. So that was very important to us. And I would have to say they've taken us to a level that we never could have achieved on our own. As far as the number of units, we would have never dreamt we could have immediately purchased a 418 unit facility. And that's one of those things where again they kept us focused. It was all about the numbers. It wasn't about emotion. We wanted it to be a turnaround so it could have we could learn the good and the bad.

And we also tend to like turnarounds because we can build equity quickly. So that was built in. We hit every single thing that we wanted to achieve."

"We presented a project that we had been “eyeing” for quite some time. It was a unique and challenging conversion opportunity in a VERY Strong Market. We were blown away by the feedback and the suggestions we received at the Mastermind which reaffirmed our desire to purchase this property. Having multiple sets of experienced eyes to dive deep into the details of how to unlock the potential in this site allowed us to solidify our plans moving forward and I can’t wait to share our progress with the group at our next meeting!"

"I was an appraiser working in Brownsburg Indiana when I stumbled onto a self storage facility that a business acquaintance owned. We agreed on a sales price contingent upon me sell off my 7 duplexes and 2 single family homes to have enough money to buy his facility. Fortunately, I was able to unload them all to an investor that gave me enough money to buy his facility for $460,000. Using you value add strategy, I built another building to the existing 4, with 22 climate controlled units and some offices in the front for $300,000. For another $13,000 I added gravel to the remainder of the 4 acre lot and fenced it in for Boats and Rv’s. In a short time, we were full, and it was throwing off around $3,500 a month in positive income. A broker friend of mine said he had a buyer looking in the area and he made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. I sold the facility for $1.5 million dollars, for a profit of around $727,000!. My appraisal business has grown tremendously, and now I’m looking for my next Self Storage Project."

"I took a 3.6 acre parcel that I owned and ran my concrete business from, and using your value add strategies, my partner and I built 3 storage buildings on it and leased them all up within 1 year. We built 3 more, 2 which almost ran the length of the property, and we added some boat and rv parking. We were about 78% full in our second year, and had consistent positive cash flow of anywhere between $10,000 to $11,000 per month. We were approached by a partnership that bought us out, and we netted roughly $400,000 above what we owed on the property and buildings. Since then, I have grown my concrete business substantially, and started 2 other businesses with the proceeds. Thanks for all your help!"

George Robinson

I retired from American Vanlines several years ago, and after talking to a friend of mine in Tennessee, I decided to visit his the facility he built to see if this was what I wanted to do in retirement. It was a totally enclosed all climate controlled building with about 256 units, but the best part was that he only had 1 employee. So I took his building plans along with my business plan to my local bank and sold them on the deal. They financed $800,000 or 80% of the $1 million it would take to develop it, and I put together a group of investors that collectively invested the other $200,000. They were made up of my dentist, my CPA, my Dad, sister, and a couple of friends. I payed them 15%, and the payments would accrue for 3 years. Well fast forward 2 years later, we stabilized the property, I refinanced it and paid off the investors. Then in 2007, I sold it for $2.6 Million netting a profit of $1.6 million plus almost $600,000 in positive cash flow over the time I owned it for a total return of around $2.2 Million dollars on this 1 deal.

"Well, around May of 2018, we decided to seriously look into purchasing a self storage facility in Virginia.  We literally followed Scott Myers program to the letter and closed on a 158 Unit Facility (10.69 Acres) with a rental home on site for $874,000  (Gross Revenue $139K) on 11/30/18.  We used BB&T and was able to get the loan at 10% down amortized over 25 years with a 5 Year Balloon and secure $50K in Capex for projects to further modernized the facility.  My wife and I are managing members and we brought in family to do a 50/50 partnership.

I wanted to thank Scott Myers for the educational program which helped us successfully acquire our first self storage facility.

The transition has been pretty smooth and we are excited about the future potential.  This will not be our last purchase!  We are looking to build a small portfolio.  My wife and I have come to understand the true value of Masterminds and being around like minded individuals.  We also believe we can add value to Scott's mastermind group through our recent experience and would love to know if there is room for us to still join Scott's mastermind and the different levels that may best fit us.

Once again, we would like to thank Scott and yourself for giving us the chance to meet you last year and teach us about the many opportunities in the Self Storage Industry."

Jermaine & Faith Hill

"As a long time investor, I am more than pleased with the results of our First Self Storage Facility. Upon acquisition, it provided instant cash flow of $4,600/mo. & has been easily manageable. I am now in the midst of acquiring additional self storage faculties & ground for development. My plan to is to continue diversifying my holdings to include more self storage properties."
