Make Money by Working Hard
The secret toŵakiŶg ŵoŶey iŶ aŶy Đareer is ǁorkiŶg hard. It doesŶ’t ŵatter ǁhether you are a Đoŵputer prograŵŵer, doctor, engineer, or truck driver. You will never maximize your income without working as hard as you can on behalf your employer and those customers you serve.
The hardest workers in trucking make the most money. Why? Because hard workers get the most lucrative loads. Employers are not stupid. They trust their most precious loads to drivers they know are trustworthy. They give them to the drivers who work hard, obey the rules, and serve their customers. If you want to make money in any career, you must be willing to work hard.
Make Money by Learning
Hand-in-hand with working hard is learning. You are never too old to learn and learning new things will increase your income potential. For example, learning in the trucking industry might mean getting additional endorsements on your license that allow you to hall hazardous or oversize loads. Both kinds of loads pay more. Get your hazmat endorsement and you will increase your income.
Learning can make you a more efficient driver as well, leading to more loads in shorter amounts of time. In essence, efficiency is more money. The better you get at doing your job, the greater your earning potential.
Make Money by Working with Your Dispatcher
This next tip is one that is lost on a lot of drivers. Unfortunately, drivers and dispatchers often view one another as eŶeŵies. They are Ŷot. They are supposed to ďe ǁorkiŶg together as a teaŵ for eǀeryoŶe’s ďeŶefit. As a driǀer,you will make more money by working with your dispatcher rather than against him or her. Dispatchers love drivers they get aloŶg ǁith, aŶd they’re ŵore likely to thiŶk of those driǀers first ǁheŶ Ŷeǁ loads Đoŵe up.
Make Money by Moving Up
Lastly, truck driving is a career that offers job advancement. You can make money by moving up the ladder with your company. For example, you could become a driver trainer after proving yourself a safe, reliable, and efficient solo driver. Driver trainers make more because they have more responsibility.
Down the road, you could move into CDL training, dispatch, and even management. You could eventually go on to own and operate your own trucking company. The point is this: there is plenty of room for upward mobility in the trucking industry. The further up the ladder you go, the more money you will make.
