Truck Driving As A Career
Trucking offers great opportunities and a great way to earn a living - if you know what you are doing.
That's the problem for too many people who attempt to start new careers as truck drivers each year - they do not have enough information before they head off to truck driving school and before they start their first job at a trucking company.
Others have the wrong information from sources that either have their own agendas that are not in the best interest of the driver - or they simply do not have competent relevant information to provide to start with.
Either way hopeful new truck drivers enter the trucking industry misinformed and have unrealistic expectation of what life as a trucker really is like, and as a result they usually do not survive more than a few hard months if they last that long - before they quit.
They go home angry, disillusioned and broker than they were before they started.
The fact is that trucking can be an excellent well paying career for a lot of people - but it is not for everyone.
Even if it is for you - there is much to learn even before you start and more to learn along the way if you want to be successful.
In future episodes I will cover more details but this episode will give you a good idea of why so many people don't last long in trucking - and how you can avoid becoming one of those who fail.
Find out what you need to know to help you decide if trucking is for you or not - and if it is, learn how you can build a successful career and a better life!
