    just because some one has 10,20 or 30 years of exp doesn't necessarily mean they holds the key to success. dictating that someones gonna fail in a flease purchase is having a closed mind. there plenty of people who failed but there also people whose been successful so you statement is flaw. there alot of variables to consider before stating someone success rate, their business scene, work ethics, money management. every one keeps saying save up and learn the freight lane and buy a truck cash. well each company has there own freight base so staying a company driver to learn freight lane is another flaw, also why would i save up 20+k to buy a truck cash and find out that being a o/o isnt what i wanna do now i wasted 20+k and now have a truck that's sitting,

    how does a student grad get exp and become a better driver he drives for a company well whats better way of learning on how to be a owner op by doing a l/p with no money down and min risk outta pocket upfront, doing a l/p is a great way to learn what it takes to be a owner op( business scene, work ethics, money management, taxes, freight rates/lanes) before actually investing large amount of money when you guy started you started from the bottom and like 30 yrs ago when gas was $1 a gallon and you were making more money cause you weren't restricted to e logs and other mandates. yes i have 1yr exp but honestly how does your exp make you any better of a business person then me? because i decided to do a l/p im automatically a failure?? yeah i may not net as much as you guy but its not all about the money for this 1st yr its about gaining exp so yeah $1k-$1500 a week net is good to me esp if im gaining knowledge on how to operate my own business, im only doing a 1 yr lease then paying cash or financing a truck from a dealership.
    well why didn't i go to the dealership in the first place well my lease is a walk away lease so if being a wanna be owner op isn't for me i can turn my truck in and not default on my loan or have any charges where as if i go to a dealership and turn my turn in my credit is gonna take a major blow. but what do i know i only have 1yr exp

    I'm a "twentysomething" and guess what? I don't feel entitled to anything and I've worked hard even when I had no goal and got nothing out of it. I started working on my grandfather's farm when I was seven years old, and I was out there with him every single day that I wasn't in school. I didn't get compensated in any way, I was out there because I wanted to be and I loved doing it. I got my hard work ethic from an older generation, and continue to display that work ethic today. In fact, I can't stand anybody who is my age and their crap attitudes, and have spent my time around older folks my entire life. So don't lump me in with the rest of my ######## generation, because I'm nothing like them.
