Best of both worlds

A good thing has gotten even better. I’m talking about our Partners in Business program, which has an updated manual and website, and new sponsors.

For the first time, the manual combines the broad owner-operator coverage of Overdrive with the in-depth business knowledge and advice of the accountants and consultants at American Truck Business Services in Denver.

ATBS experts have conducted our Partners in Business seminars at major truck shows since 2005. If you’ve heard these guys before, you know they get right to the point when it comes to practical ways to cut costs and boost income.

Our next seminar will be 2-4 p.m. March 24 at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky. Those who attend will get a free copy of the 2006 manual. If you can’t attend, call us at (800) 633-5953, ext. 1135, to buy one.

The new manual content is reflected in the redesigned Partners in Business website (, as are the program’s new sponsors, Freightliner Trucks and Castrol. You’ll find links to their industry resources, such as Castrol’s free owner-operator publication, In Motion, and Freightliner’s Run Smart Hour on the Midnight Trucking Radio Network.

If you’re attending Mid-America, be sure to make time amid the hustle-bustle to catch our seminar. Even if you’re an “old dog” in owner-operator experience, you’ll find more than a few new tricks for running your operation more profitably.
