Well, I'm officially not going to be training anyone anymore. I had my fun with Ken C. from TT but that chapter is over now. I thrive being a solo driver, its just for me. I enjoy being alone, not having to worry about anyone but myself, doing things when I want to do them. Its just not the right time for me to be a trainer.

I want to be able to play some videogames here and there, have some fun. I'm only 22 years old, there's no reason I should be working like I'm 45 years old supporting five kids and a wife. I want to earn some money and have some fun. There's no need for me to maximize my profits to the extreme. I want to still have some kid in me left. Being an instructor, I had no time to do anything but work, its not what I want. I'm happier solo.

I could help one person to his career by being his trainer or I can devote that extra time I will have to put into TT and reach a much, much larger audience. I would rather help hundreds of people over just one person.

That's the one thing we do on TT - help people. We enjoy it! None of us get commission for having a great post or a length, educational thread. We do it because we love to help others, all of us do. This industry is absolutely cruel to rookie drivers, misleading them with false information and confusion. TruckingTruth is a beacon of light to the trucking industry! I want to be more a part of it rather than spend that extra time on an indidivual.

Anyways, I got my new truck today!

Best Answer!

Here is my thoughts on this issue. Some may agree and others may not. That 's a personal choice. Which is exactly the root of what Daniel is talking about here. As a trainer in another field for 25 years I saw alot of trainers and students. All of us are different. I can say one thing for sure. You can spot a trainer that is truely passoniate about what they are doing, it reflects very clearly. You can also spot those who are not very clearly. Training is a huge responsibility and liability that should not be taken lightly . I fully appreciate Daniel trying this and recognizing at this time that is not what he chooses to do. That is very comendable. I have seen trainers who do it for a few extra bucks. The ones who suffer are the students with those types of trainers. Everything in this life is a choice, remember to choose wisely!

Daniel, I had no idea you are so young, because you have maturity beyond your years! I love the pics of your new truck, and of course your bike. Sorry for those who won't get to have you as a trainer, but I love to read your posts! Life really is too short to feel like you work all of the time, so congrats on realizing it now!

Nice!

I guess maybe you'll have more time now to come up with your own posts instead of copying and pasting other classics. I truly believe that copying someone is the highest form of flattery though.

Enjoy those video games and I'll be keeping a closer eye on your really classic responses in the forum! shocked.png

Why spend an hour typing it out myself when its already two clicks away? You can call that good time management, or laziness.

Aren't we all one team though? rofl-3.gifsmile.gif
