I am nervous about the career change. Just started researching. Any advice or suggestions on do's and don'ts would be greatly appreciated. Glad to have found such insightful reading.

Hello Addy, you should first read a lot about trucking. After you have a good picture what it's like to be a truckers lady: ask yourself why you like to be a trucker and how much passion do you have. Since when do you dream about your new career etc.

I am a brand new member here and I hope I can figure out how to answer you gals and how to continue my diary.

Addy, follow your heart. When you here a big yes, I'll like to do this, then go for it. When doubts, wait a little longer for your decision.

Good luck to you

Research will be your best way to learn about trucking, and if its a possible fit for you. But keep in mind....that trucking is a WAY OF LIFE....not just a job. It will change every aspect of your life as you know it....
