Our Journey To Positive Spin Trucking, LLC

 

About two years ago, Leo came to me one night and said, "Babe, I want to start my own trucking company."

Now hearing this from Leo isn't surprising. Leo was good for picking up a side hustle to earn a few extra bucks here or there for our family. He's really good at studying a business and figuring out how to master it for himself. I always knew Leo was more of a bigger picture kind of guy, but trucking? That was a new one.

He didn't know where he would begin or what he needed to do to get started, but I could tell after that conversation he would do whatever it would take to learn the ins and outs of starting his own trucking company.

He found an online trucking business class that taught the logistics of what is necessary to purchase your own truck. And through this class, it also broke down key business essentials to consider when getting into this line of work. Leo was initially on the fence about whether or not he wanted to drive the trucks himself or begin a fleet. But through this class, he felt assured that he wanted to manage his own fleet of trucks.

By managing his own fleet he'd be able to stay home with family, continue working with his current job, and still operate his business on the side.

A lot of time and energy went into building this business. There were some long days and even longer nights. There were moments I was even jealous that he couldn't watch a movie or stay up with me because he was glued to his computer screen studying as much information as he could about the world of trucking.

When he was ready to purchase his truck, it was probably the scariest moment for us. It was a huge step in a direction we weren't sure lied ahead. We were taking a leap and hoping everything he learned in his class would guide him through any pitfalls.

Leo for sure ran into some obstacles along the way. It certainly wasn't a smooth breeze purchasing a truck. It's not like going to a car dealership and picking which car you'd like. They're laws and rules that goes into it.

There were moments where Leo would have to take a step back and try again. There were moments where Leo made mistakes and had to figure out where he went wrong. There were moments when we even bumped heads on how to approach handling certain situations.

And here he is now. Positive Spin Trucking, LLC is now live. 

I'm so proud of him. He said it was what he wanted to do and he kept his word. Here's to the start of something big.
