Owner Operators are the life blood of the transportation industry. Large and small companies are looking for skilled Owner Operators for their fleets and the opportunities are endless. Having the opportunity and being successful are too entirely different things however, as there are many stories of Owner Operators or small business owners being burned at the stakes from not understanding the world of business. I make it easy in this book called Running by the Mile, he breaks down the information into ten easy to follow steps that can be followed in order helping you make decisions important to the foundation of your business.
As a leader in the industry, business and leadership consultant I not only have the experience of business, but have been in the seat myself. My entrepreneurial spirit has lead me into many businesses and the Corporation that I lead to this day. Don’t follow the pack of being a disgruntled Owner Operator or getting the wrong information, listen to those who have the business sense and understand the importance of having knowledge of the trucking industry. My thirty years of knowledge and experience and leadership mindset are what is required to have success in today’s changing pace in the transportation industry. If you are looking at starting your own trucking operation or have been working at it for a while then this is the book for you. Get started on the road to success and get your business working for you.
Check out what other people have to say about the book:
“I have had the opportunity to review the business manual for Owner operators published by Bruce Outridge. As a life-long trucking professional and industry executive, would confidently comment that the content in this manual is accurate, relevant and valuable for both those just entering the Owner Operator community and those who have been Owner Operators for years. Educational manuals like this make our people better at what they do. This manual is truly a positive asset to the trucking industry.”

Just read your book “Running By The Mile” while a friend was experiencing the exact same problems you describe. Your book helped me to see what was happening to him. Just as you said, he didn’t know his real costs and is feeling the pain of having a second truck. Trucking is a much more complicated venture than people realize. Thanks for your wisdom and good read!
