This is one of the main things with getting that first year done is that it allows you to put things into perspective with want you want to do next with your trucking career.

It was a good year. It really was. I'm not going to lie to you, it was definitely tough. But, I stuck with it and here I am now. I made it and I can pick what I want to do next. On top of that, I don't owe anything for CDL training. That's a pretty good position to be in after a year in trucking.
