Prescription question/Owner op question

Brett, what you said went where it needed to go. I have already had offers on the Volvo's and it's a profit on both. I really sat and pondered about everything you guys have said and I do think it would be best to start with one truck to learn the ropes,So me and my uncle came to a decision of team driving until I come to terms with the business. Any advice on a stinky old man? I want to succeed. I understand the method of falling to improve,but I didn't think there would be more than managing,driving etc. And sadly I underestimated the business. I really do appreciate all of you for taking time out to give me advice. Now I have to go deal with disappointed friends.

Prescription question/Owner op question

Thank you for the kind words. I have not been a full-time driver,but I was always with my father to learn the ropes and I know that doesn't count unless I am out doing it on my own. I hope you saying very few have ever done it is a good thing,lol. I am being very careful about this and I know the risks,but I have/need to try. I have a lawyer and my father's brother is my mentor/consultant,but I just need to hear "Second opinions" From people that are currently living what I am trying to achieve or just basic knowledge. Appreciate your time brother.

Help me i just wanted a job

Yeah..I am not trying to be a ****** or anything,but it sounds like you are complaining and basically asking for someone to give you a job bro. With that kind of attitude do you expect anymore than you have gotten so far? Lighten up man. Spell checker wouldn't be a bad idea either.

Best of luck man.

Prescription question/Owner op question

I would like to first say that this site is AWESOME,but I have some questions. Sadly my father passed away recently and I am a only child. He left me a very large sum of money and I bought a 2013 PETERBILT 579. Beautiful truck and I do know how to drive due to my father. Going to practice with it and get my cdl. I was in a car accident on July 30 this year and am under going treatment for a few herniated discs in my neck and back and am prescribed oxycodone from my pain management while doing shots to hopefully cure my problems. Is using when not driving prohibited? Obviously don't take when driving. Also, How does it work with being a owner op with my own authority? Do I get ahold of carriers for information or... I also bought 2 non sleeper volvos from knight trans. for 15k a piece that 2 very good friends of mine that have driven for knight for over 10 years will hopefully drive once I figure out what to do when they are licensed,insured etc. I know this will not be cheap with repairs,tires and fuel and obviously unseen problems. I am not trying to gloat,but I have enough money from saving all my life and this tragic loss. My father always wanted his own truck company and I will succeed,For him and I am hoping that you all can hopefully give me some direction on how freight will work whilst owning my own company etc. I want to do this the right way. I am business oriented and have done book keeping in the past. I just want to know how to get "Steady freight" without another company tapping into the profit. If possible. Thank you for future replies and I hope all of you are having a blessed day/night,Thank you.
