Should a 56 year old single woman consider becoming a trucker?
Been working at a desk job for over 25 years. Been single over 5 years; kids all grown. Been seeing a great guy who drives OTR, and who is interested in taking on a driving "team" partner.
I'm currently making about as much money as I can make in my current career. Frankly, I'm getting tired of sitting at a desk all day; I no longer finding satisfaction or challenge in the work I'm doing; I'm fed up with "suits"; and there's no way I can afford to retire on this kind of money.
Could this change of career, driving as a team for a couple of years, be the way for me to earn the money I need to retire in the next 10 years or so? My sister was an OTR trucker for several years (up until about 3-4 years ago), but I need some advice from truckers who are out on the road now.
Thank you, and God bless you all.
