For a few people, being ones own boss is similar to being a moth that gets too close to an open flame. You end up getting burned. I believe that being in the public storage auction business is one of the last frontier’s of true freedom and independence as an entrepreneur.
It’s all in the excitement of not knowing what’s inside a storage unit, setting your own working hours, relying upon your own judgment, creating your own financial and business goals, formulating a clear-cut business plan, and generating the storage unit auctions income you know you truly deserve. Being in any business is a gamble.
Some of us have gotten tired of working in a soul killing job making someone else money and want to find a way to escape from it. In this business, you don’t need any special education or training to make money. But, like any legitimate business, it takes time.
When you pull the plug out from making money for someone else, you only have to answer to you and all the money you make is yours except for that part you owe uncle Sam. But, then you will have a legitimate business you can call your very own and run it from within your own home with tax write offs brick and mortar businesses get, less all the overhead costs.
Warning! Don’t quit your day job to do this right away. Plan for it, test the waters to see if you like it or not, and take your time in setting it up. You can do this between jobs, on the weekends or part time. Try a few garage sales at your house at first. Then, go to swap meets or flea markets to see how vendors do it.
I was fortunate, because I was retired and had a lot of free time on my hands and could attend mini storage auctions every day, quickly learning how to successfully bid on storage units and make storage unit actions income.
I found the whole thing a fun and exciting experience that I eagerly looked forward to showing up at each day. You soon get to know the other bidders you will see regularly. You learn by doing and by what they do. You will also get a few tips from those you make friends with.
