Have You Given Up Wanting For More? Don"t
Do you feel like all you do is live for the next run
Do you feel the only enjoyment in life you
have is getting the next run?
Are you trying to get the real stuff out of life from games, TV, eating, or chatting
on the CB and getting the next run?
Aren't you tired of living pay check to pay check?
you notice those in trucking that are not behind the wheel are getting more out of life than those that do the real work?
Truckers are made to run so hard, just trying to get by, why should you and your family suffer for everyone else's
Life is so much more than being stuck on the truck all the time, you can now learn to make more and
live better, why not? Why, Not?
If there was a way to really, get beyond the "system" and really make
what you're worth, Why not try, why not at least try, why not?
If You Feel Like There's Gotta Be More To
Life Than Driving Your Truck "ALL" The Time
How To Have The Competitive Edge In The Trucking Business
Another really big reason you need to have your own equipment
is to have quick response to a load situation. There has been many time that even though I had the equipment right there at
my disposal, I lost loads because I was not using software or certain procedures that allowed me to perform transactions quickly.
Consequently the brokers found someone that would run the load for cheaper and took the load from me while I was trying to
get the paper work back to them. When a great paying load comes along, you don’t have time for your wife to rush home
from the grocery store and get that load booked for you, you have to do it and do it now! Beside, even though she has a good
working relationship with you, she most likely would rather have the flexibility to go to the hair dresser or whatever without
her schedule being tied up with the possibility of having to book a load.
While I was still learning how to get
a first time go in docking the trailer, I was making like $4.00 a mile in some cases. I’m not bragging, I just want
you to know how fast this equipment allowed me to get so far ahead in making money in trucking. There were many guys out there
that could drive me into the ground. They had all the knowledge and then some about using the trucking equipment, but they
are making basically minimum wage. These are guys that want to make more money, and sat around complaining about how ridiculous
the pay is on many of the loads they were running. Well how ridiculous would it be to go to work for a big trucking company
that has world recognition and the company doesn’t even have computers?
Before I got my own authority I was
at Panther II “now Panther Expedited Services” I met many guys that had been there for only a few week, over and
over again I heard the same thing, “I’m leaving Panther”, Why I’d say?, Cause they get me in certain
areas and I just sit”. First thing I’d ask them, “do you have a computer?” They’d say “no”
every time, not most of the time, not some times, every time. I’d say, no, no, no, you don’t understand how this
Then I’d remind them that in orientation the instructor told you to get a computer, buy the
services of a load board and find loads when you get out of the service area “the service area is where Panther supplies
the loads”. I say “what part of that didn’t you understand”? And so I beg guys not to leave, I begged
those guys not to leave. I was making all kinds of money over there, loving life and blessing the Lord and others; while many
of them were just dying. I begged so many guys not to quite, I told them what I was doing, how I was doing it and gave them
my phone number and ask them to call me if I could help them.
Sometime they would call me and ask me to post their
truck on a load board, which if I had the time I would do, but most of the time they were expressing a lack of resolve to
get the equipment they needed. I wasn’t trying to sell those guys on anything; I had nothing to gain, but the satisfaction
that I had told them the right thing to do. I’m not holding back anything from you in this book that I know will do
you good, and make you successful.
Can I earn high incomes in trucking without learning my market or having the modern equipment needed to follow the market?
There may be exceptions in anything but usually other factors
are involved that at some point must meet with a need for the modern technologies that make business and success feasible
in a world that can't wait.-Jo Bernard-
Frankly without much of the equipment that I present here
I personally just can’t see how you can accomplish the things that are going to give you the success you’re looking
for. It doesn’t matter whether you are a one man outfit or a great big corporation in trucking, you may as well accept
this fact, that just as much as you need a truck to be a Trucker, you need a computer to go into business for yourself.
Man if you’re cutting grass for a living, now a day’s, you need to set up your business to do paperwork,
process transactions electronically, determine your market, make your services available to the market and go to the bank
and pay bills and more right out in the field. Not just a computer but many other electronic devices. I’m not talking
to those of you that see this very simple fact. Only in trucking would I even have to mention it. Everybody in the business
world, which has their head on straight, knows you have to be electronically and technology based to succeed in this highly
So enough about that, if you’re still sitting around fighting and making excuses for
not getting all the electronic services and equipment you need, you’re just not ready to become a high income earner.
Complacency means’ “self-satisfied and unaware of possible dangers” it is referred to as “sleep”
or “a deep sleep” in the book of Proverbs, check out these verses, replace sleep/slumber/sluggard with the word
complacent or complacency and vision/dreams for eyes, the kind of vision of future prospects:
Prov:6:4: Give not
sleep “complacency” to thine “your”
eyes “vision”, nor slumber “complacency” to thine eyelids “dreams”.
Prov:6:9: How long wilt thou sleep, “be complacent” O sluggard “lazy”?
when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep “complacency”?
Yet a little sleep “complacency”, a little slumber “more
“complacency”, a little folding of the hands to sleep “be complacent”: 11: So shall thy poverty “a broker” come as one that travels, and thy want “a broker
agent” as an armed man.
I promise you, every week you
go without having and learning how to use the technologies you need to become successful you are missing out on monies that
you could be making. I think sometimes if people are making just enough to get by, they lull themselves into the idea that
their doing just fine without technology, there’s no use in getting it now. Until something goes dreadfully wrong, like
this economy we‘re in, then the need for these things are magnified, but even so, some just don’t get it.But here’s
what I know, if they ever owned, and use it for making money and suddenly had to do without it, the difference would be like
night and day. Then would they see how much difference it makes.
