Publisher's summary

After losing my corporate job in 2008, I went through the toughest time of my life. At the time my wife pregnant with our third child, and my monthly unemployment check wasn’t enough to cover our house and car payments. 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. I still remember my first paycheck was just $55 shy of what I was making at my corporate desk job. I was hysteric, I was happy, I knew this was my new found life and freedom, and no one was going to take it away from me.

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.

This was when I entered the second phase of my business life. I started to buy one tractor every three months as I was hiring great drivers who are professional, family-oriented, and serious about making money. By 2016, I had 12 trucks on the road, and this is also the year when my net earning passed $350,000 mark. To me, the 350K mark was always a benchmark. Why? Because I knew that was the salary of the CEO of the company I used to work for.

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. But I didn’t even remotely think about selling my company. Instead, I was talking to the bank and was in the process of finalizing a loan for four new tractors with trailers. Once again, long story short, 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.

The income potential is truly amazing, and yes, if you can hire the right people, you will not only see significant growth, high net income but the satisfaction that you don’t get from many other jobs and businesses.

What I share in this book are the steps I went through myself. From my own experiences. I share a step-by-step process that is easy and simple to follow, and best of all, you can get started with very little funding.

Here is a quick view of what you will discover:
