The idea of owning a business crosses everyone's minds from time to time, and I was no different. For the majority, all that really comes along is a fleeting thought that never gets much true consideration.
There are many reasons why people are afraid to take the plunge - they do not have access to substantial funds, they are afraid to lose the security that comes with a steady paycheck, they believe they will have even less time for family and other commitments, and a host of other "I just can't do it" excuses.
But the biggest reason that most people never try is simple - they are terrified of failure.
I was no different as I mentioned, I have gone through all the phases that most go through before getting into their own business, but being a OTR truck driver, I was gone weeks at a time. I still loved what I was doing, but I had been married now for several years, and we had two children with a third on the way. I missed my family when I was gone, and it was hard on my wife as well.
Then that little voice in my head came back and whispered, "Open your own business." This time I was in a position to listen and listen I did.
When I look at the faces of my family and know without a doubt that running my own Freight/Trucking Broker Business was the best decision I ever made.
I make my own hours, work right from home, and never miss any of those important life moments. There is so much opportunity out there for others just like me. I could work 24 hours a day if I really wanted to.
I started off with just myself and my wife in the office, and now the wife is "retired", and we have 22 full-time employees in various positions.
Starting out on my own took a lot of guts and was a long and winding path full of trial and error.
I enjoyed this book. delightful insight as to how an industry operates in America. great
