getting deeper involved with the trucking life
by: Hervy

Hello there.

I hope your still around, your doing what I have been advising wives here and there to do.

It's good when a wife gets involved in trucking. Especially when there is a decision to go deeper into the industry like becoming an owner operator.

This cuts out overhead if the wife can work and puts more money in the home. Also makes it less risky than depending on other people.

I would like for you to explain kind of hold a chat with the ladies about the possibilities for them and their husbands to go the direction you and your husband have gone.

If you are glad or wish you hadn't. If you see more profit with multiple trucks or you wish you were only running the one. ETC

What did you learn and would do different. ETC

Also, feel free to post your company if you are looking for a driver or drivers. Check these new pages for drivers wanting to drive right now.

So Right
by: Jennifer Schnittker

Mrs.

You are so right, And that is what most men (Not all) miss. They get lost in their job, and forget what is left behind. I think you just set me on a mission to write my next column for the page. One for the men!

Best of Luck to you
