Big Rig Business Startup
How to Start, Run & Grow a Successful Trucking Company
After losing my corporate job in 2008, I went through the toughest time of my life. At the time, my wife was pregnant with our third child, and my monthly unemployment check wasn't enough to cover our house and two car notes. In desperation, I decided to go to a local trucking school and get my CDL. I found my first driving job a week after I got out of school.
Long story short, after two years of working for other companies, I decided to start my own trucking company, and I started out as an owner-operator. In 2013, I decided it was time for me to grow and time for me to get off the road and spend some time with my kids.
Last year, I received a call from a business broker who asked me for a 10-minute meeting. He had brought an offer from a big trucking company to buy my company. After I refused their initial offer, they came back with an offer that no reasonable man can refuse, and I consider myself a very reasonable man.
It's been almost a year since I sold my business. Due to an non-compete agreement, I am not starting any new trucking business, but they never told me I couldn't write about trucking business. So here I am, sharing my secrets to success with you!
If you like the freedom and fresh air of the open road, if you like the job security and solid pay that the trucking industry offers, then you need to get started now. My suggestion is even if you don't want to drive as an owner-operator, to be successful in this business, you should at least learn to drive big rigs and have your own CDL. This way, you will learn and can master the ins and outs of this business faster. Think about it, if you own a bakery, shouldn't you know how to make bread?
The income potential is truly amazing, and yes, if you can hire the right people, you will not only see significant growth and high net income, but also the satisfaction that you don't get from many other jobs and businesses.
What I shared in this book, are the steps I went through myself, I wrote from my own experience and shared a step by step process that is easy and simple to follow, and best of all you can get started with very little funding.
