About Tyler Sellars

Tyler is a Canadian entrepreneur based in Spain, currently serving as the CEO of TryCactus.com. He has been investing in self-storage for three years and in real estate for six. Tyler’s journey began in 2018, shortly after graduating from college, when he posted a heartfelt plea on Instagram seeking a down payment to secure a 7-bedroom rooming house. This successful acquisition kickstarted his investment journey. 

Despite early challenges, including a global pandemic that complicated the real estate market, Tyler’s strategic decisions led to significant growth. Eventually, at 27, he sold all his properties and shifted his focus to the self-storage industry, founding SimpleStorage.ca. This venture quickly became a leading name in the storage industry with three locations and expanded services, including third-party management and franchising options. Tyler attributes his success to the foundational support from his first investors and a relentless pursuit of innovative business strategies.
