    To each their own. I have read so many posts about any and everything bad about leasing, but I have made it work quite well for me. Not saying I wont fail, and not saying someone else will come and do the exact same as me and have the same success. But in the end, its business, and if you run the business right there is no reason you shouldn't do alright. Personally I'm paying myself just enough to survive so I can get this truck paid off asap.

    Company drivers, with 5 years experience I think, make 51 and 55 for ne. But I know they have miles. When I was company I averaged at least 2750, but I only went home like once for actual hometime over the 4-5 months.

    You will do fine and never mind the naysayers.
    Having been a ttr member for a few years now iv learned to take what I read here with a grain of salt and i dont let what i read here have much influence on my business decisions.
     
    Trucker Jon Thanks this.

    Not to put salt in the wound but............Not worth it 39k after taxes for 70 hours a week running a business- forget about it.

    I would agree with you if I were in this short term, but I am not. Before I started I worked on a long term plan for months. I am only "paying myself" enough for me to survive, and the rest goes back into the business. Eventually I will have enough trucks running under me that I wont have to run any more and can still live comfortably.
     
    Lonesome Thanks this.
