Hey, buddy. Wanna buy a truck?

Most owner-operators begin their careers as company drivers. Making the leap from employee to independent businessperson is a huge step, but one that offers a great deal of promise for those with the right game plan.

As part of our How to Become an Owner-Operator monthly feature, we also are offering a series of free one-hour webinars this year. The first one, Getting Your Finances in Order, is May 18 at 8 p.m. central time. It will feature John Turner, a certified public accountant and owner of The Trucker’s Accountant. He has been preparing tax returns for truckers since 1989 and is a weekly guest on The Business of Trucking segment of The Dave Nemo Show.

Find out what steps you need to take with your personal finances in order to develop a business plan before visiting that shiny rig on the dealer’s lot. To register, visit www.truckerwebinars.com.
