No Money Down | Investing In Storage Units | Clark Storage LLC

Working with a young gentleman in Zagreb, Croatia who was seeking advice to get into the Storage business.  I was mowing the next day and thinking about a business I have in Belize (higher interest rates) and also the fact this person probably didn’t have much capital.  The amount of capital you have determines the paths you can take. Croatia has a very low-interest rate now around prime 3%, but it has been up to 3000% before, probably due to the war. If interest rates ever got above 9 or 10% I would never build.
