Round Rock, TX, July 16, 2013 --(PR.com)-- The Texas Self Storage Association (TSSA) is holding its annual conference on October 27 – 29 in The Woodlands at the Waterway Marriott Hotel and Convention Center. Bill Rancic will be the opening session speaker on Monday, October 28. Several years after his introduction to America as Donald Trump’s original Apprentice, Bill Rancic continues to develop as a businessman and entrepreneur. TSSA members can relate to Bill because of his current real estate development activities. He also produced and starred in the A&E series “We Mean Business,” where he and his team of experts grappled with the impending doom of businesses in jeopardy by showing owners how to reduce expenses, increase profits, limit liability, implement new technologies and more. These are universal themes that appeal to all business owners.
A published author, he wrote Beyond the Lemonade Stand to help educate and motivate young people worldwide about the value of money and how to leverage skills, talents and abilities at an early age. All proceeds from the sale of this book have gone to charity.
