I have driven semi before but don't have a CDL yet. I'm thinking about buying my own truck and be independiente truck driver. Don't have the funds to buy a truck yet. I have been doing research and I know some companies that will hire independent truck drivers.
I suggest starting this step wide, 1st get your CDL, then look for companies that hire drivers and use that to fund buying the truck.
I understand your thoughts Sherri, but many franchises cost less than what a new car costs today, and then you are in control of your future with recurring revenue in a business that no one can ever take away from you. And there is special military funding available that allows you not only to fund the business with the government's money but also to pay yourself a salary as it ramps up. David, I'd be open to having a conversation, I've put 8 Veterans into their own businesses just myself this year alone!
That's a great idea!
There are many companies out there that allow you to begin with less cash than the typical franchise fees.
I understand Amazon is seeking independent drivers for routes.
Best of luck to you.
