About

profilepicHello and welcome to my blog. Here you’ll find a mixed bag of my thoughts covering a wide variety of topics such as public speaking, leadership, motivation, team building, coaching (both business and personal), politics and world events, history, books, marriage, spirituality, and who knows what else.

My personal mission is to inspire and empower others professionally, personally and spiritually to elevate their lives to a higher level.

Since this is the “About” page, I’ll give you a little personal background. I guess the first thing to know about me is that I am somewhat of a workaholic. Aside from being the owner of a third party self storage management company, I am also a self storage owner. I have been involved in the self storage industry since the early 1990’s. Through my business, I now help many new investors become involved in self storage through education, sec compliant investment opportunities and doing feasibility studies of perspective development sites and acquisition opportunities.

I am a very avid reader and am a former Amazon Top 1,000 reviewer. Almost all of the books I read are business related or personal development related. I also do a lot of writing, have published numerous articles and am currently writing a book on personal development.

Servant Leadership is what drives me. My constant goal is to help other develop and reach their full potential. As a business owner, my goal is to make sure the right people with the right attitudes are recruited and developed and given the resources they need to be successful.

The key principles of my leadership are simple; the people under my guidance are not on my staff, I am on their staff. If I do everything possible to help them succeed, in turn I will succeed and the company will succeed. Recognition is a key aspect of my leadership. I try to always catch people doing something well and let them know how much they are appreciated for what they do.

If you would like information about self storage management, coaching or having me speak at your next event, please feel free to give me a call at 830-832-9496.

I want to thank you for checking out my blog and I hope you will click on the the “follow” button and come along for the ride.  Feel free to chime in any time.

    Hello Mr. Rainy,

    I read your post about “My Heart at Wounded Knee: An Indian History of the American West” and I see your point. Are you aware of any books that discusses inter fighting among Indians? thank you for time.

    Leo,
    Since all Native American cultures were void of a written language, unfortunately there is very little recorded history and much of what is available is based largely on speculation and lore. There are a few resources you may find interesting. One of my favorite books on American Indian history and culture, specifically of the Lakota and other Plains Tribes, is Plains Indian History and Culture by Jack Ewars.

    Another resource I would HIGHLY recommend (if you can find it) is a long out of print set by Benjemin Bussey Thacher – Early American Indian History, Volume I & II.

    In this genre, you may also run across something by the well known revisionist, Howard Zinn. I recommend avoiding these at all costs if you want an accurate portrayal of Indian in-fighting pre-caucasian. There are also a few books available about the early northern and eastern tribes, specifically the Iroquis and other Great Lakes area tribes but very little that succinctly provides insight into hwo so many of those tribes were erraticated prior to European arrival.

    Dear Mr. Rainey,

    Thank you for your voice. I did not want to trouble you by phoning but I would be much obliged if you would review the following book:

    ‘Tea With Socialists: Government In Your Panties’ by Blaine Brown

    Blaine is a fellow unapologetic conservative (and a lover of the Lone Star State).

    I repect your opinion and a review on your blog as well as on Amazon from you would be a great blessing.

    Sincerest Regards,
    Amanda Brown

      HI Amanda. I truly appreciate the offer to review the book, but I want to be as honest with you as I can. Right now, I am swamped with work and have had very little time of late to read much. It’s a great problem to have as my business is booming, but in all honesty, I don’t know when I would have time to read it and wouldn’t want to have you send me a copy and then be two or three months before I could get to it. However, if it is an uncorrected proof and you are not going to press then let me know and I’m sure I could fit it in and review it before it publishes. Thanks again.

    Dear Mr. Rainey,

    Thank you so much for your message! We would be honored to have you review it even if it is two or three months down the line. Thank you for your generosity. Where shall I send a hard copy? I can text you and you can reply that way if you would rather not post a physical address.

    Again, we are humbled by your willingness to help.

    Respectfully,
    Amanda Brown
