I have been in trucking for about thirty years or so and counting and have held numerous positions from Driver to Safety Director to Independent Owner Operator. Before trucking I put years into Real Estate as an Investor, Agent, Broker and Property Manager - and I started and ran several small businesses ranging from commercial cleaning to wood crafting.
Prior to that I was in the US Military for twelve years - specifically the Navy where I learned many valuable life lessons including leadership, productivity and how to train other people very effectively.
I am the founder of Transport Resource Solutions LLC which is a company like no other.
TRS has always put others first - and in fact was started as a training, recruiting and consulting company to help other drivers start careers and businesses successfully and to help them do better in all areas of life.
We still focus heavily on Trucking and I have now trained THOUSANDS of people how to achieve Trucking Business Success systematically.
While we now serve a wider community including entrepreneurs and business owners of all kinds as well as those interested in getting started in any business, our core focus remains the same - to help other people, including you if you wish - achieve Trucking Business Success and/or learn how you can Build Your Own Business Empire systematically by learning sound principles of Entrepreneurship and Business Management.
Let's connect and explore how best I can help you achieve your own goals too.
My background includes extensive experience of more than two (about three now!) decades in all areas of the the Trucking industry.
Over the course of all those years I have held many positions including; Driver, Trainer, Dispatcher, Third Party Skills Examiner, Licensed Instructor, Recruiter, Personnel Director, Safety Director and Independent Consultant, and Independent Owner Operator.
Each and every position taught me very valuable lessons and gave me invaluable experience.
One of the most challenging experiences I had was setting up and running a truck driver training school from the ground up, including developing all curriculum, training and testing procedures as well as training and certifying all the school's instructors.
Additionally, I have set up and overseen an internal driver training program that was focused on bringing in new driver graduates with a fresh CDL but no experience, and training them to the next level and beyond as they gained experience to become top producing and highly efficient professional truck drivers.
I have assisted both owner operators and other small fleet owners as well as companies that operate dump trucks and other types of equipment with setting up and maintaining their own DOT Compliance and Risk Management Programs, and with developing recruiting programs and internal training programs of their own.
I helped set up a Freight Brokerage as a separate division of another motor carrier - and I consulted with several brokerages on hours of service, DOT Compliance and working effectively with Independent Owner Operators and small fleets.
As I began to help more people, I discovered that I really enjoy training, consulting, coaching and helping people who want and need help get better results in their businesses and their lives in the process. It is very rewarding to see fear and nervousness go away as people begin to understand what needs to be done - and as they become more confident that they can handle all this stuff.
You can operate both safely and more profitably - and I can help you do it. Get the help you need and do Better!
I have always been involved in some aspect of training, consulting or coaching most of my adult life and I really enjoy helping people.
The more important issue currently - is how I can help you.
If you are thinking about starting your own career in trucking - you have just found a way that can save you years of frustration and help you thrive in an industry where most others wont even survive more than a few weeks to a few months.
If you own, manage or control any business that that operates vehicles on public roadways whether or not it is regulated by DOT and falls under FMCSA regulations, I can save you frustration, money, headaches and years of learning the hard way.
I conduct very detailed and easy to understand training programs, and show you exactly how you can implement what you learn. Most of my courses are available online 24/7 from anywhere you have access to a computer and internet connection. Occasionally I do conduct live training in person or online, and many of my live training events are FREE!
The dates and enrollment information for any upcoming events can be found on this site and on Eventbrite as events are scheduled.
Get the information you need to immediately set up and start maintaining your own management control systems from the ground up.
Even if you already have some experience in risk management, DOT compliance and safety I can help you improve any existing systems you may have in place, confirm they are adequate and show you how to streamline maintaining them so you will always be in compliance.
We offer many resources to help you, including our online courses, as well as other products and services to help you operate safely and profitably.
