Within three short years, I went from working for others to owning and operating my own business enterprise.
Being an owner-operator provided me opportunity and through hard work, I’ve been able to explore different parts of the country, purchase my own fleet of trucks, manage my own operation, and now have a team representing my own brand of business.
