Keep On Truck'in? . . . America's Highway Sentinels .
June 9, 2021
Hosted by Frank Helring
During my career in the insurance business I had many business clients and not the least of these being Owner Operator Long Haul Truck Drivers. Their profession is not only highly skilled but essential to the economic sustainability of this nation. Products are worthless unless they can be transported to stores that market to the consumer. At one time a long haul truck driver could earn after expenses a good living for his family but today with rising costs, the owner operator ranks have shrunken to single digit representation of the industry. Gone are the Peterbuilt and Kenworth days of prosperity and stature. Rising fuel, insurance, equipment, maintenance and reduction of income is effecting long haul truck drivers in a very significant way. Today, my guest is an expert in the field of long haul trucking because he owns a company that puts the load onto the trailer. He is a small businessman with a very rich history because he is an immigrant from the Ukraine who is proud to be an American and he is living out his American Dream. He is deeply concerned about his industry and his now American Homeland and we will cover both of these contingencies on the show today. You see, there is a paradigm shift happening in this industry that you don't hear much about in the general media because . . . Truth, has stumbled in the streets! You are going to hear today how this vital provider of services is becoming embattled and more so looking at alternatives to their present dilemma. The American Truck Driver . . . An Essential element of the future of America and the World!

BizZne$$ BuzZ is all about your business. Small business is in trouble and they have been as far back as the “rocking” that occurred in 2008. The 14.2 percent loss of many brick and mortar small businesses happened by the year 2015 (source, NFIB 2015 Report). Already being squeezed by Internet predators, like Amazon, E-Bay, etc. They are literally sucking the life out of small businesses by customer and profit “siphoning.” B2B Networking Groups and social media disappointments abound.
Small business needs a “counter” to these E-commerce tsunamis and that mechanism is the power of UNITY, RELATIONSHIP and the Law of RECIPROCITY. This is an EDGE that is a non-compete. The “perfect storm” of shut down/customer distancing, lack of capital and uncertainty are the devastating effects of COVID19 disruption.
Our mission is to provide your business the boost that it needs to recapture your personal visions, rejuvenate your operations and to bring about a platform that represents your interests.
