There are some things you need to know if you intend to build your own trucking business successfully. Our new course is now live on Udemy and it will walk you through the key things you need to be aware of before you launch your own business. The course is called; Trucking - How to Become an Independent Owner Operator It is now live and available on Udemy and you can find it there or through our Courses page on www.ldsewell.com along with an overview of the course too. One of the big considerations when thinking about starting your own trucking company is whether to lease on to another motor carrier and run under their authority (and to a large part their control too) or whether to go the independent route and get your own authority and operate as a motor carrier. The independent Owner Operator route offers you by far the most freedom, control, and opportunity. But along with all that is good about it also comes all of the responsibility too. There is no company staff with multiple departments, divisions, and numerous personnel to handle all the behind the scenes stuff for you anymore - that is all on you and is your responsibility to either do it all yourself or hire your own people to do it for you. Either as staff or more likely as independent service providers, especially when you are just starting out. If you have any interest in starting your own trucking company with your own truck and trailer from the ground up then this is the course for you! We are still adding more and more resources to our site. At the moment there are a few pages that are not fully connected to their links - but we are working on it. So it won't be much longer and the site should be in pretty good shape. As far as an update goes, we did finally launch our own Training Center using Teachable as our platform and that is available from our Courses page under the Classes link and it is available from our additional resources page too. We are working on numerous courses for the Training Center that will be going live over the coming months on all of our core topics. So a lot is still going on. We have not started actively recruiting members for our membership yet, though we do have several facebook groups that are slowly but consistently growing. Soon we will begin looking for a few Independent Sales Associate Membership Recruiters ( they may have that or a different title but the mission will be to recruit members and build the membership as well as sell other select courses and products) which will be a one of a kind opportunity for a fortunate few. Anyway, that about does it for this one - talk to you again soon!
