#LinkedMoms visit @StorageWorx–iPadMini #Giveaway

#LinkedMoms were asked to drop by and take a tour of the facility as part of the Real Estate, Movers & Stagers Open House on March 20th.  We would never turn down an opportunity for a networking opportunity & a Cafe Mocha!

#LinkedMoms – Margarita Ibbott  and Paula Schuck with Storage Worx President, Colin Bierbaum

We are so excited about telling our community about a great companies that we are working with.  Storage Worx is a state of the art Storage facility located in London, Ontario.  It has a unique concept that stands alone in the storage industry.

In 2012 (the year the facility was opened) Storage Worx won the Overall and International Facility of the Year Award from Mini Storage Messenger Magazine.  Not too shabby for a facility that has been opened less then one year. The facility has a complete business center to supporting the growing needs of their customers: Wi-Fi, laptop desk units with phones are available for no extra charge to those that rent units.  Small business owners can also book the spacious conference room for a small fee if you are not a self-storage client. A large flat screen TV lets you display your presentation easily as the room is all wired. You can also offer your clients coffee & freshly baked coolies to your clients.

We got a personal tour by Storage Worx President & Blue Stone Properties Manager, Colin Bierbaum.  He took us around and showed us the space calculator (so you can visually see what each unit holds. One large unit had been divided so you could see the different sizes of the units).  We also found the QR code on the signage very helpful as it took you right to the website and the cost for each individual unit.  Very convenient if you were looking it up on your smartphone…They also have a visual illustrator that will give you an idea of what will fit and how to store it.

The whole building was spotless, well it and easy to navigate.  Colin showed us how the alarms sounded off if you tried to open a unit that was not yours.  The security system is extensive and the property has various cameras that monitor all areas.

#Easter #LinkedMoms Chat Tonight

IMG_0785

Happy First Day of Spring! Clearly, my daughter looks a little less than impressed with the get up I put on her a couple of years ago. No, I am not some crazy mama that dresses up her kids and pets just for a laugh. Or am I? Well, I guess you need to come to our chat tonight to find out. I am super excited for March to explode into April showers and flowers and Easter because honestly I am tired of the cold weather. It’s so snowy here still. But at the same time it hasn’t been consistently cold enough to have endless hours of skating fun and hot chocolate and tubing. I say if you are going to live in Canada and do winter embrace it with zest and passion. So typically in years gone by we have spent hours skating outdoors. Well, this year all the rinks melted. While my kids got to go tobogganing I did not. It was a dud of a winter and now it has overstayed its welcome. So I say bring on the spring weather and let’s chat all things Easter. Bunnies and chocolate and special meals and family, and even an Easter Egg hunt. Bring it on. Bring your pins and posts and tips and thoughts to our twitter chat tonight. Let’s talk Easter!
