TODAY’S TIP: Use a budget. A budget is your financial roadmap to success. A budget shows you exactly how much money is needed for business and personal expenses. It can tell you what you can expect to make each week, month and year based on how you operate your truck. A budget can help guide you to a break-even point by telling you how many miles you need to run to cover those expenses and be successful.
