Trucking is a tough industry with a tough reputation for tough people.
There really isn’t a better way to put it.
As long as people live in different areas all over the country there will always be a high demand for transportation. “Get it done or tough,” will always be the name of the game.
Independent truck drivers take this challenge like a bull by the horns when they step up and accept responsibility to get the job done. They sign their name on the line and stand behind it.
Some truck drivers are not satisfied by the lifestyle of just driving a truck, alone. They want more so, they buy their own truck. Then they want even more, so they start their own trucking company. This is the ultimate goal for most truck drivers as it was mine.
People told me that I could never get my CDL without going to trucking school. I’ll never forget how fulfilled I felt when I passed my road test and got my CDL license. It truly was an amazing feeling that I didn’t get again until I picked up my first load as an Independent trucker. Yeah they said I couldn’t start an Authorized Independent trucking company either.
I proved them wrong and I kept notes the whole time of what I learned so I could share this with other people. I wanted to help other people since people helped me on my journey and I knew there is no reason for people to spend so much money if they don’t have to.
That’s why I recommend if you are looking to make a move towards INDEPENDENT TRUCKING DON’T DELAY. I wouldn’t put it past the powers at be to find ways to make it even harder to get your authority in the future. Trucking is already a heavily regulated industry and you never know what new hurdle they want to add to the course.
Independent trucking is definitely not for everyone.
It really is only for those select few who have what it takes. Do you have what it takes to go independent?
- Do you feel like someone should help you do everything?
- Are you the silly type that thinks everything is a joke?
- Do you blame other people for your mistakes?
- Do you view safety practices as a waste of time?
- Are you a hot head who looses their temper at every little thing?
If you answered Yes to any of the questions above then I WOULD NOT
Recommend independent trucking for you. If you answered all of the above questions NO then you may be on your way. Some people don’t get this but responsibility is not a negotiable concept for an independent truck driver. The buck stops with YOU.
Register your email and I’ll show you every single step I took to go from nothing to a full authorized trucking company in only a few weeks. The process seems over welming and that’s because there are so many steps that you have to complete in a specific order or you could make a mistake that may cost you when you’re operating.
Learn what the factors are behind the regulations and how to setup your company to avoid getting snagged in safety audits. I’ll share with you the exact techniques I used to manage files and compliance documents so you don’t care if you get randomly audited by the DOT or whatever you’ll be set.
Don’t worry about what the naysayers say. You can go from nothing to an owner operator to an independent truck driver. I did it and you can too. See you on the inside.
