Part-time o/o

If you are within 3 hours of Mt. Airy, NC there is a company that will work you pretty much when you want. One 7 day run a month required.

Thanks all for your comments and advice!!!! Its nice to post a basic question and not just get flamed for it.

I have zero experience - not even a DOT medical card. I am just kicking the tires. So please break it down to the essentials and assume I know NOTHING, because I don't! LOL

Perfect for me would be 3 days on, 4 days off. Or 1-2 weeks on per month.

Essentially, I want to have the freedom to live the lifestyle I want, but still be engaged with the economy by running a small business without a traditional supervisor relationship. My whole life in the back of my head I though trucking would be kinda cool.

I am also tired of managing employees and a thousand projects. I in fact developed a case of OCD and anxiety due to my last job just destroying my nerves. I need something where I can just focus on one task at a time.

Is this feasible?

Part-time o/o

There are part-time casual driving jobs available - I have one - but AFAIK they all require 6 or 12 months' recent experience. Would you be willing to put in that amount of full-time driving before going part-time?

Yes, I would.

Honestly, I'd almost like a turn-on, shut-off situation like an Uber driver for passengers may have. Whatever I choose, most important is that I do not want to have a boss anymore. I can literally do whatever I want for the next 10 years and certainly don't want it to be a situation that involves asking for PTO, etc. At a point in life, you feel too old to be asking permission for anything.

Part-time o/o

Hi friends!

I am going into semi-retirement. Would being a part-time o/o be feasible at all? I'd like to stay engaged and working, be able to fund my own health care, but also be my own boss and be able to take off for extended breaks as I'd like. I also don't want to commit to weeks away as an OTR driver.

Currently just doing research whether this career may be right for my needs upcoming, please let me know what you think.
