#166: Scott Lewis- Maintaining a Company Culture in The World of Self Storage


“If you’re honest with yourself, work diligently towards that goal and are disciplined, I think the wealth and the finance stuff will be a manifestation of being true to yourself.” -Scott Lewis


Today I am interviewing Scott Lewis. He is the Co Founder and CEO of Spartan Investments Group and is responsible for the strategic direction of the company. Before entering into real estate, Scott worked in the biotech industry in regional sales and also held positions of management for the federal government. Scott has been a guest on my podcast in the past and you can find that segment here


Scott Lewis:  Did not enter real estate in the traditional sense, but was a framer in high school and developed a skill for building. That skill aided him as a flipper as he was just entering the world of real estate.  After flipping he started investing in the self storage space and later on founded Spartan Investment Group. Scott was also an active duty US army Infantry Officer.
