Publisher's Summary

The idea of owning a business crosses everyone's minds from time to time, and I was no different. For the majority, all that really comes along is a fleeting thought that never gets much true consideration.

There are many reasons why people are afraid to take the plunge - they do not have access to substantial funds, they are afraid to lose the security that comes with a steady paycheck, they believe they will have even less time for family and other commitments, and a host of other "I just can't do it" excuses.

But the biggest reason that most people never try is simple - they are terrified of failure.

I was no different as I mentioned, I have gone through all the phases that most go through before getting into their own business, but being a OTR truck driver, I was gone weeks at a time. I still loved what I was doing, but I had been married now for several years, and we had two children with a third on the way. I missed my family when I was gone, and it was hard on my wife as well.

Then that little voice in my head came back and whispered, "Open your own business." This time I was in a position to listen and listen I did.

When I look at the faces of my family and know without a doubt that running my own Freight/Trucking Broker Business was the best decision I ever made.

I make my own hours, work right from home, and never miss any of those important life moments. There is so much opportunity out there for others just like me. I could work 24 hours a day if I really wanted to.

I started off with just myself and my wife in the office, and now the wife is "retired", and we have 22 full-time employees in various positions.

Starting out on my own took a lot of guts and was a long and winding path full of trial and error.

Nothing here

I'm in this industry, and this book has almost nothing substantial to offer. You can learn all this on the job. I wish I could get my time wasted on this book back.

Waste of money

This book did not contain any information that couldn’t be easily found on the Internet for free with a simple Google search. The author should change his name to Captain obviousTotal ripoff.
