The Self Storage Mastermind
“The mastermind is much more intimate, you’re getting into very specific information about each particular deal, and how it can be structured, and while sometimes we, or some of us…
…may bring something to the mastermind that maybe we don’t think will even work, or how it could even work. That’s the whole power of mastermind, is everybody puts their heads together, and say, ‘Well, have you thought about this? Have you thought about that?’ It’s much more in-depth, and creative.
My son asked me one day, ‘Well, why do you go to those?’ I said, ‘Well, that’s a good question,’ and I said, ‘You know, I think we go to learn from other people, so we don’t make the same mistakes.’“
– Wendell Long
“We found a deal that we brought to the Mastermind. It’s a development deal, because our market is so competitive. And we presented it, and I got a whole lot of recommendations…
…on how to present it to the bank, how to present it to other investors… You get to where you can distill down the information, and you can spot good properties. Just with three or four ticks off of your list, then you know whether or not you want to go deeper. And in the whole process of everything, we had investors falling in love with our project as much as we are in love with it.
I could see how I would just want to come to every Mastermind there is.”
– Monica Owen
“I truly believe that with this team I was able to walk forward with confidence, is knowing that I had the best behind me, they were watching me, they were gonna guide me to make sure…
… I did not screw up and that everything would be worthy of a good deal.
We’re meeting with people that are like minded, my peers, that are doing the same thing that I am. To have the group that are so connected and involved and wanting to help each other out has just been phenomenal and it’s become a large family, we just all work together and it’s just fantastic.
I can’t thank Scott or Keith enough for the success that they have led me to and made me go and have the confidence to continue and have the success that I have now.“
– Sandy Smith
“The Mastermind fulfilled my expectations. Everybody had a chance to chime in, and certain students that had more experience asked more in-depth questions, and some of…
… the newer folks, like myself, either remained silent or they had some questions that I would have as a new student. I found that to be very helpful.
The number of deals that was covered was a lot more than I thought. The first day was, I think, six or seven deals, and the second day was even more, so I feel like I got a large amount of exposure to a variety of deals all the way from a small deal of like $250,000 all the way up to deals in excess of $2 million.”
– Matt Woeber
“I’ve grown exponentially as far as where I was at the first mastermind, so I’m just really excited to see where all my colleagues and everybody will be the next time that we…
… get together.
I’m so beyond excited to own my first facility and to learn all the crazy stuff that I’m learning along the way and trying to absorb it like a sponge.
I knew nothing coming into this program in 2016 in June, and this is where I’m at now. Gives me goosebumps.“
– Sandra Straughn
“After taking the Home Study Course, and completing Scott’s group mentoring program, Scott invited me to participate in The Mastermind he held in Las Vegas at the…
… Inside Self Storage Trade Show. I thought I knew all there was to know by now, but Scott’s Mastermind exceeded my expectations. As a result of the Self Storage Mastermind, I’m now growing my Self Storage portfolio and there’s no end in sight. I can tell you that learning with Scott and taking action has changed my life!“
– Alberto Bernardoni
“From day one I was made to feel like I belonged. That everything, every term, every definition, every concept was broken down into a way that I could understand and…
… absorb it and apply it. It’s not my knowledge, it’s our knowledge… We’ve just hit the ground running.“
– Liz Cresci
“It won’t take a long time to realize that if you’re looking for a secure, backed investment that will get you a better rate of return, this is something you need to take a look at…
…Value across the board … the knowledge is valuable, the opportunities are valuable — priceless. Outstanding.“
– Armand D’Errico
“Presenting is a learning experience for everyone… I thought it was a great way to kind of build those chops and to get used to that conversation and answer those questions, because we…
… will eventually be standing in front of investors making the same pitch.“
– Marc Stella
“Scott (Mastermind Organizer) is adept at leading and engaging conversations around deal presentations that will get us thinking and brainstorming about underlying problems…
…challenges and triumphs with which we can learn lessons and apply them… If you are looking for a Mastermind where you can meet quality business professionals, build business relationships, grow your business, boost your career and be a part of something greater than yourself; the Self-Storage Mastermind is the perfect place for you.“
– Eric Thompson
“The Mastermind is giving me the skills to focus the use of my time. Fantastic networking tool. You have a tremendous number of years of knowledge of the business in that room…
… It’s an opportunity to take advantage of that and start to grow your own self.“
– Dan Goodman
“Up to my first academy I didn’t really have any investing knowledge whatsoever… and going to one of Scott’s courses three years ago. It really painted the picture that this…
…asset class self-storage, while maybe not sexy, is a really strong asset class and made it attainable as well.
I am able to lean on Scott and his team to advise me, guide me, shoot ideas back and forth, so the path is a little easier. I don’t have to recreate the wheel. There are a lot of things that they’ve figured out over the last ten years that my team is just figuring out now, and I feel like there’s not any need to go down that road.“
– Geoff Smith
“It is fantastic to surround myself with like minded driven people that are passionate about storage. I plan on being a fixture at all possible Masterminds in the future. So PROUD…
…to be a part of such a magnificent organization. Thank you for all you do Keith. Have a fantastic evening.“
– Clint Miller
“The Self- Storage Masterminds have had and continue to have a powerful and positive affect on my life. I have enjoyed the meetings. They have been extremely…
…helpful in furthering my career by providing me with knowledge, and understanding which has giving me the confidence to evaluate potential self-storage deals, present information in a more effective manner and develop business relationships with other like-minded professionals. The mastermind members, collectively, create an environment that is conducive to professional and personal growth and accountability. Due to the diversity of the members, we all benefit from learning about various industries and its useful relevance to our own endeavors.
Everyone is very supportive and willing to share resources and perspectives that help to build each other. Specifically, Scott (Mastermind Organizer) is adept at leading and engaging conversations around deal presentations that will get us thinking and brainstorming about underlying problems, challenges and triumphs with which we can learn lessons and apply them. I have been especially encouraged by the intentional bonding opportunities we experience as a group, whether it is a facility tour, wine tasting in Napa, antique rickety bus tour in Denver, or other team-building activity. Overall, it sets a great tone for the meeting and creates the best opportunities for us to relax, learn, grow and prosper in a supportive, synergistic, high energy atmosphere.
If you are looking for a mastermind where you can meet quality business professionals, build business relationships, grow your business, boost your career and be a part of something greater than yourself; the Self-Storage Mastermind is the perfect place for you.
– Eric Thompson
“in our market, it’s very, very competitive, and that’s where we came to the conclusion that we would have to be developing, which takes a whole lot more money. So we…
… needed to come to a Mastermind in order to connect with people that had money, and could help us develop the property that we wanted.
…And in the whole process of everything, we had investors falling in love with our project as much as we are in love with it. And I haven’t set down my parameters for the kind of funding that I want, but I already have three investors that are interested on participating in our project.
…And I could see how I would just want to come to every Mastermind there is, and I would just want to invest my amount of money in each, a little bit in everybody’s projects. Because then you just sort of expand your own profitability. So it was definitely … There were, out of those 20, there’s probably four or five that I would have invested in.“
– Monica Owen
“I would recommend the Mastermind to friends and colleagues. My number on a scale of 1 to 10 is a 10. I love masterminds and the synergy that is created. Scott does…
… a great job of moving everyone through our time together.“
– Val & Gary Bullerman
“when we were up and presenting our deal, just to hear the feedback from everyone else was, to me, a reaffirmation that we….
…were on the right path. And that we were looking at the right things. And we had the right questions… Going though it and speaking it out loud and trying to explain our concept to this group helped solidify for me some of the details and the feedback that they were giving us were … Some of it was things we had thought of. A lot of it was stuff that we hadn’t thought of, because they’re looking at it with a different set of eyes. I can’t wait to go back and see the notes on this and really sort of dive back into it.“
– Marc Stella
“I was very excited to be able to present and I really enjoyed getting the feedback from the group in the mastermind and that I could learn from things that maybe…
… I didn’t explain clear enough or, “Oh, my gosh, I hadn’t thought about that!” I just think once again with the education and how far in just a couple of months that you can actually get.“
– Sandra Straughn
“Each session of the mastermind we look at at least ten deals easily. And with each deal we evaluate each individually and we put our minds together – that’s the best thing!…
…We put our minds together, and we do critical thinking on that deal and think about all the possibilities so the person who has the deal would know what to do to move forward.
I think the Mastermind is very, very reliable. You can’t just attend an academy and expect yourself to be a pro. Mastermind is having 20-30 partners to help you.
– Cheryl Oh
“If you are a serious about taking your Storage Business to the next level, I highly recommend Scott Meyers’ Self Storage Mastermind Group. I have attended since…
…2016 and Scott and the group helped me with my first deal – our $9,000,000 Development in Minneapolis. Of the 13 deals that were presented at the last meeting, each was either being assessed for ‘holes’ in the purchase, allowing more sets of ‘eyes’ on the deal, or they were getting ready to be sold by the owner where the deal was put up for discussion and analysis. In one session I sat next to an investor who had access to $70M in syndicated funds who kept asking to see more and more deals! In another session that I attended, 5 out of 7 deals were funded. This session is well worth the time and investment to attend!“
– Mary Molloy
“We attended the Mastermind and there was, I think Keith mentioned there were 18 presentations, I believe, that sounds about right. But there’s a large number…
…of people as well in the room. And so, what ends up happening is you’ve got … Each person is presenting – some deals are ready, you just need to have the money to put into it and some are people that are maybe half way through it, they’re still going to do diligence, they’re you know, presenting the property as they found it and what they’ve started doing. But then of course … So the good thing of it is there’s always next steps that come out of it. You know, even if you’re still working on it people in the room can say, “Yeah, we had some similar experience and here’s what I would do in your situation, the next steps to take to determine if, it is a good or bad deal”.“
– Steve Southwell
