    It took me about a year to pull the plug and make the move. Honestly, i wish I would not have procrastinated.

    You won't become rich. Run hard and smart and you will do well. Like I said in a previous post, my wife is happy I made the move.

    What are your overall expenses weekly? If you don't mind me asking.

    Brian told me to expect 1100-1200 take home. Is that accurate?

    The expenses will depend on the tractor you choose, extra options you choose, tolls that you pay and your fuel. The numbers you get from Brian will be real close.

    You have control on toll and fuel. I try to take a different route when I can as long as I'm on time.

    Drive smart and don't gun it will save you on fuel. That's the biggest expense which I keep an eye on.

    That is true. Keep in communication with your DM, be on time, don't get fussy and refuse loads.

    You will definitely want to have a GPS. At orientaion, they will have a car for you to use to go to walmart to supply your truck and get food. Don't forget to get a broom.

    Yes, your running a business. You can use your own accountant, do it yourself, or sign onto a service like ATBS.
