    If you have that kind of cash just buy some bitcoins and make it 10x in a year or 2 without having to fleece anyone.

    Number one problem for trucking companies is finding and retaining good drivers.
    Solve that and you will make a lot more than five million

    Knew a guy 30 years ago won $250,000 in a lottery. Bought two trucks cash and hired drivers.
    After five years he had two worn out trucks and no money.

    So the idea of getting a semi truck on lease and putting a driver in it while you sit back is really that hard?
