Create Financial Stability

Financial stability is at the forefront of everyone’s mind. If you’ve ever thought about investing in your own storage units, the time to strike is now. The demand for storage is up, and occupancy is at an all time high! The industry is booming, and opportunities abound.

About Your Host: Scott Meyers

I am known as the Nation’s Leading Expert in the self-storage business. However, I personally don’t consider myself a Self Storage Investing expert in all aspects of the industry as many have labeled me. I’ve been the architect of dozens of extremely successful real estate transactions since I began my real estate career in 1993. I also invested in a deal that turned out to be a financial disaster for one of my companies. Which deal taught me the most?


The one that nearly broke us! All I am really an expert at is making mistakes and learning from them. The key is that I learn from my missteps, I pay attention to my mistakes, and I have become an expert at not making the same mistake twice and at learning from each one.


Along the way, I’ve become an expert at teaching others about the business and how to avoid those same mistakes I have made while investing in self storage.


Over the past year, my partners and I have purchased more than 15,000 units totaling more than 2.4 MILLION square feet of self storage across the country. And at this event, we are going to show you exactly how we did it!

Terry Campbell

General Manager | Live Oak Bank

I have seen a lot of changes in the industry in over 25 years! I love to use my experience that I gained at a large self-storage building supplier where we also did the construction of the buildings. As a lender, I have helped people see things in their potential acquisition or new building that they may not have seen themselves, which can save them time and money.

“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!”
