    I know Prime gets a bad rap from most guys but that is who my hubby went through for his training, the training pay is a guaranteed $600 a week, and when you get out on your own if you take a lightweight truck and get your fuel bonus you will make .41 cpm. They are not perfect and definetly not the place to stay forever but a way to get your foot in the door with the least financial impact.

    Lots of ways to get an extra $500. Get a second part-time job, either during the week or on weekends. Do you smoke or drink? Cut it out. Got a friend that just figured out that if her and her husband quit smoking, they could save about $600 a month. You can do it if you put your mind to it and want it that bad.

    LOL I'm from a small town in WV myself where they have to pipe the sunshine in. We had a lot of comic books. I did finally learn to read and not move my lips.:yes2557:

    I just finished school and OTR training with Millis. In October of 2013 My business went belly up. I lost everything. Got a wife, two kids, and my animals. I knew I had to do something. No one in my town was hiring, I'm 45 years old and since I've been a tattoo artist for 25 years, I'm covered in tattoos so no one wanted to even consider me. I tried everything, but there simply was nothing. Then I thought, My dad was a trucker his whole life, My wife's dad was a trucker his whole life, I've always wanted to drive a truck. I was four payments behind on my car, I had already defaulted on every credit card I had, My credit was shot, and my marriage was struggling, but I started researching. In November I contacted Millis. Now I have a history. I haven't always been a good guy, and when I was young I went to prison. It was a serious offense so nothing was certain. I shot straight. I explained myself, my past, my current situation and my need to get to work. I didn't have $500, and I didn't have anyway to get it...but I did. I went to school in Burleson with literally, the shirt on my back. I sold stuff to eat, I sold more stuff to pay for eating the first two weeks on the road. Now I'm in my own truck. You have two choices in life...make excuses for why you can't do something, or knuckle down and MAKE it happen. No one owes anyone anything in this life, and nothing is free. No one will give you a free ride...there is ALWAYS a cost. You can go with Western Express, but you won't be happy there. Or you can MAKE it happen where you want it.

    I remember this young kid who came into my tattoo studio years ago wanting an apprenticeship. I laughed him out the door. He was back the next day, and the next, and the next. He made himself useful, he MADE it happen. Now he is an accomplished tattooer in his own right. He got in with nothing, and honestly, no chance...if you want it there is no one who is going to get it for you but you...no excuses. Make it happen...or don't.

    Don't waste the 500, plenty of legit FREE options, Mill is is not the company it once was!
