    I am sorry if this is not the right forum to ask my question and will be grateful if you can point me to the right place.
    Basically, I have zero knowledge about the trucking Industry except for that I was part of the team that developed most of the web applications that truckers use to file taxes in the state of Indiana.
    I have money to invest but no knowledge.
    Any experts that can hold my hand and walk me up? I'll really appreciate it.

    You just stepped in front of a firing squad.

    I wish you well with the venture and with this thread.

    might be better to find a small outfit that's looking to sell out / retire , everything would be in place just need your $ investment , owner could stay on and mentor you for a while.

    You may want to get a job at a trucking company and start learning the business from the ground up.

    The only difference between this guy and the "I have no money, no credit, and I've been driving for two months and ready to be an owner operator now" is that his failure will be on a granduer scale. Please sir, continue. With pictures.
