I made my first year with a safe record. All I can say is it’s crazy how fast time flew. I’ve worked for two companies this last year May and now Marten. I spent six months with May before the offer for my current job was presented and after careful consideration and the pay increase I made the switch, it was a good move for me.

Best advice I can give to the new folks is to keep at it and persevere. There is a lot to learn, stay humble and communicate communicate communicate. Those two things have kept me on track.

I’m wrapping up my 30 and moving onward to NM where I’m parking for the night. This load is a load of first aid supplies for a j and j distributor out of Fontana CA.

Time will fly, keep grinding and moving forward toward your goals in life!

All the best Moe

Awesome news! Most do not make the one year mark.

What's your next goal?
