    hey thanks for your honest valuable info, what's the average time you spend on a daily base contacting new potential clients about how many calls, and can I do this part-time and have a driver job at the same time until I can totally support myself doing this what do you think.
     
    Rocks Thanks this.

    I think it's tough for full time guys much less part timers. I think driving a truck is brutally hard work already. Are you an owner op or a company driver?
     
    Rocks and Coachman1 Thank this.

    At this moment I'm company, but I was thinking on doing a L/P and finding my own loads if the freight broker agent is not possible now.

    Don't do a L/P. Ever. Honestly dude it sounds like you're unhappy with your company job. What kind of work do you do? This might be a better thread for @Chinatown than anything.
     
    Brickwall, Coachman1 and p608 Thank this.
