Booth #203 After about eight months of selling billboards, the family sold both the advertising and records companies. I worried about what the future would hold for me career-wise, but they asked me to take over the three storage facilities in Georgia and help with the development of a fourth. A year later, here I am, traveling back and forth between Alabama and Georgia, a month from opening our eighth storage property. Life-Long Learning Many people look at others' career success and chalk it up to luck and good timing. There can be some truth to that; however, no success comes easy. In my path, there have been many obstacles, moments of pressure and fear, and times when I was asked to do something I didn't know I could. But I believe the more we face something of which we're afraid, the stronger we become. I never want to stop learning. I make it a priority to learn something new and contribute to the company in some way every day. Some of the best advice I was given is to come to work every day with the attitude that I'm here to make my boss' job easier. So, if you're interested in progressing your self-storage career, find a goal and run full-speed. Your path will become clear if you stay positive and work hard. Be yourself and surround yourself with people who encourage you. Lastly, don't allow yourself to get caught up in the praise or rejection of others. Believe in yourself! Chris Rhodes is the general manager for All-American Self Storage, which will soon operate eight facilities in Alabama and Georgia. He has five years of industry experience.
