If I gave you one string, you could probably break it without any problem. If I gave you a rope (which is made out of many strings wound tightly together), you would have a difficult time breaking it. Joining strings together make them stronger. The same principle applies to people and events. When they join their efforts, those efforts are stronger and benefit more people.
STORE Self Storage & Wine Storage (a single string) is joining together with Palm Beach Gardens (another single string) to create a strong event for the community. They are combining their separate green markets and making it one jumbo event. [More]

An old adage states, “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” Sometimes a book may have a worn out or boring cover but the story is griping and fascinating. The same principle could be applied to a business. Don’t judge a business by its curb appeal. Even if the business’ curb appeal may be boring it could still be a great business.
But why chance it? [More]

Statistics further show that the U.S. has the highest teen pregnancy rate of the Western industrialized world. Some people have observed that teens do a better job at planning to buy tickets to a concert than they do about when they will have children. [More]

When two entities in parallel industries join together, both entities become stronger. Such is the case of a new partnership between USSelfStoprageLocator.com and StorageMart.

StorageMart is a self storage business that has facilities where people can actually store personal belongings, RVs, boats, and cars. Both have customers that are looking for storage space yet the two businesses do not compete against each other. They support and assist each other instead. [More]
