Questions about prime leasing

Terry, I can understand where these other drivers are coming from. Coming from a successful lease operator at Prime I can honestly say I averaged $1500/week NET average when I was solo. Now that I train I make double that but also acquire more risk. Your goal is very possible. If you don't mind staying out for long periods of time, watch your fuel mileage and buy fuel at the correct locations it's practically impossible not to be successful. Another important part of leasing is to set up an emergency fund so you always have back up funds available just in case of desperate needs. If you have any other questions or need additional information just let me know. Stay safe out there.
