Four free, one-hour Partners in Business seminars will be held at the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas, Texas, next month. The seminars will inform owner-operators on how to improve their bottom line by reducing costs and making better business decisions.
Seminar attendees can sign in with their name and address in order to receive a free PIB manual, a $20 value that includes detailed advice on planning and running an owner-operator business, including business tips, tax and insurance information, and equipment management strategies and personal finance.
Two seminars are set for Friday, Aug. 24 and two for Saturday, Aug. 25. The Friday sessions, presented by Todd Amen and Richard DeForest with ATBS, will be held from 12-1 p.m. and 2-3 p.m. on the Truckers Armor Stage in Hall D of the convention center.
