Two truckers share their stories

Meet Nailah and Martin!

Two different people who truly love what they do, which is driving a truck.

Sometimes in life, you need to think outside of the box.

When a friend suggested that Nailah attend truck driving school she stood in front of her in high heels and a dress and thought NO way was this for her. Today she happily says, “I am in a place where I don’t have to want for anything. I am happy. I don’t have bill collectors calling me…

Dispatcher wanted me to drive when I was tired

So last week I had to change sleep schedules a few times because of the timing of the loads. I ended up having a 10hr break and was able to grab a full nights sleep but then a half hour into my drive I was told to take another 10hr break. Of course I couldn’t sleep again so soon so when that ended and my dispatcher sent me out with a new load I was dead tired a few hours into the route. I pulled into the next stop and called in to let them know I…

THE 10 commandments of trucking

Saw this post on Facebook or somewhere and saved it because it's SO true and sharing it with this group.

1- Cover your ass. Take pictures, get it in writing, scale everything, get a dashcam and run it all the time.

2- NEVER trust a dispatcher.

3- Never enter any place you don't know how to get out of. Throw the brake, set the 4 ways and walk yourself in. always make sure you can get out.

4-. Don't screw over the next guy. Leave the truck…

Always remember there is an explanation for all occasions. When it comes to dispatch it's, Truckers never lie or get lost. They're…

YOUR LIFE IS ABOUT TO CHANGE! (When your light shines...) [IBYC]

NO OBSTACLES, SHALL PREVENT ME FROM READING THIS!

THOUGHT: Unknowingly, a mirror can reflect three possible things:

1) The person you were. (The Past)
2) The person you are. (The Present)
3) The person you're going to BE.(The Future)

You MUST let go of some things from the past, so you can reach towards the things that can attract you a brighter future!

No. #1. You have to STOP putting yourself down internally and in private when no one else…

DESPERATE

I'm down to my last 10 dollars. Got laid off in May. Unemployment hasn't compensated me. No one will hire me because of my age. Can't fully retire for another year. I have to move out of where I am by October. I just keep praying for a miracle. I'm determined to believe that God is going to make this situation better.
Does anyone know of any jobs where I don't have to be on my feet all day? I've been an administrative assistant my whole life…

Yes try work at home jobs

Age discrimination?

I am 60 yo. I apply and apply, but get nowhere. Someone suggested I drop the dates of employment from my resume. Has anyone heard of this? Does it work? I'm at the end of my rope.
