When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade, isn’t that how the seasoned adage goes? If you get dumped on, you just need to find a way to turn it around in your favor. It’s a single of those things that easier to say then to do, but at the same time a little creativity will take you a long way. I am living proof, a guy stuck out in the middle of nowhere with no real job prospects, who took the junk on his land plus turned it into gold! Well, maybe not “gold” but something extravagant enough to pay my bills for me. I used to think the pile of seasoned shipping bucket near the dump was just another kind of garbage, but obviously whoever dumped 15 cargo containers out there thought they were garbage, too, which is why they took them to the dump. When I found them, I got a weird idea, mostly because my Mom made a living with custom welding, plus I was a pretty great welder myself. Our little town doesn’t have a secure storage facility, you think the kind with lockers plus temperature controlled units. I realized that if I fixed up plus organized all of these storage containers, I could rent them out individually to locals who needed extra space! Shipping containers are strong, they stay dry plus wipe inside if always sealed, plus they are easy to lock up. It took myself and others a few months to do all the work, but finally it is done, plus now I have an office in a single storage container, with 14 others available to rent.
