Let the countdown begin to March 22! 

If you're going to be in attendance at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Kentucky, join Overdrive and owner-operator business services firm ATBS for the 2:45 p.m. session "Owner-operator survival strategies, tactics to thrive in a down market." Join us there for the blast-off of this year's updated edition of the Partners in Business handbook, a comprehensive guide to running an owner-operator business. 

We're proud to welcome a new PIB sponsor, too, in Rush Truck Centers.

Rush Truck Centers logoRush Truck Centers is the premier solutions provider to the commercial vehicle industry with 150-plus full-service dealership locations in the United States and Canada. They represent industry-leading truck brands and offer parts, service, collision repair, and a range of aftermarket solutions.

I know the fine folks there share the Partners in Business vision for your success as an owner-operator.

We're making fast progress -- down to the final stages -- on updates to the special-edition handbook, which will be available to all of you for download shortly prior to the Friday, March 22, session. Significant additions to the book reflect some of the things Overdrive's own Gary Buchs and ATBS Vice President Mike Hosted will be talking about in the MATS session -- the value of time efficiency when the freight-market chips are down, necessary engagement with costs and income potential in load and pay-package evaluations and much more. 

Partners in Business 2024 cover.Other significant updates: Resources around recognizing and combating predatory tow bills and practices, the latest advice around income thresholds for evaluation of any move to the S Corp business structure, more red flags to avoid getting hoodwinked by a double broker, plenty in the insurance realm, and much more.
