CDL Minded Entrepreneur is about developing the mindset of starting, owning and operating a CDL (Commercial Drivers License) Business. This is to help and relieve the stress of most entrepreneurs that want to start their business but don't know how. This will also help beginner and current business operators overcome the challenges of starting their very own CDL Business in the CDL Industry (especially during these times).
A must have book for those who are getting into trucking and experienced truck drivers alike. Everything you need to know about commercial driving from the ups and downs to the pros and cons. Once I picked it up, I couldn't put it down till I finished. It will always sit on my bookshelf. I have over 20 years of professional commercial driving experience
I love this little book. The writing is fluent and concise, easy to read but full of well-founded advice about starting a career. I don't have a Commercial Drivers License, and I'm never going to get one. However--I write books. And all the advice Joe Ryder gives for starting out with the goal of being a CDL entrepreneur is the same advice I would give a beginning writer for tackling a book project in terms of time management, prioritizing, and so forth. This book is a hundred pages of easy-to-understand tips and advice for anyone reaching for that long-term goal.
The book covers a lot of what it takes to run a successful business and combines it with how it could help you when starting your own business in the trucking industry. I got my CDL with multiple endorsements and have been driving for some time now. I really enjoyed the tips in this book and i'm sure you will too.
Having several friends who work as long-haul commercial drivers, I’ve always been fascinated with the income potential offered through the trucking industry. This timely book outlines what it takes in today’s current economic climate to become more successful. Much of the focus is on developing an appropriate mindset for the business. The book is a quick, yet informative read.
As an author and business owner, I am always learning and can say I gained some new knowledge here. This book is great if you want to start your CDL or any business. While the discussion is about CDL application, anyone who wants to start a business can learn some very actionable information. It is full of advice from an experienced business owner on what type of business to start, importance of business plans, necessary mindset, health, family, work balance, overcoming roadblocks, and much more. I especially like the links to business plans as they describe different types of CDL opportunities. If you want to start your own business, learn how to run the business and experience new freedom, get this book.
