Is there a right time to start a freight broker business?
If so, how do you know when that time is?
If these are questions that are rolling around in your head, you’re not alone.
For years I knew I wanted to start a freight broker business but with the consistent flow of money as a truck driver, I always had a reason why the time wasn’t right.
At any point in my trucking career I could’ve came out the truck and started my business but I didn’t.
On the surface, it was because I wasn’t ready, or the economy is bad or I need to save more money.
However, that’s not all.
Sure, you want to be prepared, sure you need to save money so you can support your family as you grow your business and yes the economy isn’t at the top of the game- at least not yet.
Although these are very good points, there’s one problem.
Now before I get into the problem, let me ask you a few questions.
What’s holding you back from starting a freight broker business?
Are you not financially stable? Are you waiting for more experience? Are you waiting to get laid off? No judgements here.
Now ask yourself, if you eliminated all those things that’s holding you back, if you could take them out the equation completely, when would you start? Today? Tomorrow, in a month? In 6 months? A year?
These are questions you have to ask yourself first.
Everyone will have a different start time. Your time might be today. Someone else might be in 5 years.
Point is, without knowing your situation first hand, I can’t tell you when to start.
However on the flip side of the coin, I can tell you when you shouldn’t start a freight broker business, or heck any business for that matter.
And that’s precisely what I talk about in this weeks episode of ReloGeek TV. When you shouldn’t start a freight broker business and why.
