Lmao, exact same thing I was thinking. I even thought to myself, these two guys seem to be talking to each other in two different languages.

I read a lot on this post.
Very interesting to see how hard things can get.
I open my business in 2008 focus on commercial work. Boy.... it was hard.... by far the hardest thing I ever done professionally. I almost close down 2 or 3 times. Some moments I had no idea how to get the bills paid. The idea of giving up never crossed my mind, and I'm not saying that to impress no one here. Is just a fact we always plan for the best and rarely are ready for the worst.

In a new business you always need another income. No one can expect to make profit on the first and second year. I agree with the used equipment purchase on the beginning. Save all you can, leave new stuff for when you are profitable.

I really hope the best for the gentleman that created this topic. Is hard to admit failure but it brings valuable lessons as well.

Truck driving can open up alot of great things for you, it can allow you to clear up alot of debt. I have been driving for eight years and i have a decent local job that gets me home everynight. I live in the northeast so i deal with the snow and ice and it could be a [email protected] sometimes. Just remember mind over matter in whatever situation your in. Besides that i hate waiting on loads or how some places treat the overtheroad drivers. They say 98% no touch but that 2% is usually more, good luck youll meet alot of great people and alot of bad drivers lol.

Oh and dont use your jakebreak in slick conditions youll lock up your tires.

My buddy just jackknifed last week, he didnt tell me i found out today. He said he was coming down a hill in the rain and his wheels started to hydroplanecand the trailer came around then forced him into the gaurd rail and crushed the cab pretty good. Well over ten thousand dollars in damage. Company policy states over 10 k and your gone. Hes been there 11 years hustles his a$$ off six days a week. No word on whats going to happen to him yet.
This reminds me of a Mohawk driver with 30+ years first with Aladdin then when it folded into Mohawk. Great guy. Great worker. What youd call a company guy. Dude was reliable for them and always got the route finished. When they needed him on weekends he was there. Then he had a bad string of luck. Wife was almost killed in a car accident and then he was involved in an accident (his fault) and he hurt his shoulder. I think all the nights by his wifes side at the hospital and stress got to him. Slipped up once and they 86ed him. Its was sad. Another driver told me he came in one day and they let him go. Thats when I told myself Id never drive for a large non union company and thank my stars I work for a small FAMILY owned co. Too many variables on the road.
