My Days Are Numbered

I don't know how may days I have.  But we all know that we only have a certain amount of time to live.  The time I have to spend with my family is limited.  The time I have to work, to play and to be lazy are all limited.  I have to figure out the balance every day to make the most of that day.  I like to look at limited time, as a motivator.  I am motivated to make the most of the time I have.

One of the best things I do for my business and to make the most of each day, is staying positive. In freight brokering as in any sales job, you have to make a lot of calls that don’t lead to a sale. This can be frustrating if you focus on those negatives. Instead, realize each “no” is one step closer to a “yes”. Each “no” may one day lead to a “yes” if I don’t burn bridges. I learned today that our days are measured. So make the most of each day by focusing on the great in the day. Being my own boss is great. Having 3 granddaughters is great. Enjoying a beautiful wife and three daughters is super great.

Remember not to worry - you are not in control anyway. I have learned that God is in control from start to finish. He even knows how much time we have on this earth. Zig Ziglar says you’re going to be dead a lot longer than your going to be alive...LOL. Zig also often said: You really can have everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want.  Peace! God is with you. He has plans to bless you. I didn't make this stuff up to make you feel better. It's all in the Good book.

It does make me feel better to appreciate what I have and whom I have in my life. I feel comfort knowing that. I hope you do too.

Moving forward,

Great, Informative, Amazing

 Those were some of the words our last class of freight broker graduates used to describe the basic course they just completed.  We get a kick out of meeting and training a new group of freight brokers every month.  

Here are the parting comments made by our most recent group. 

J. Mauridi

This was one of the BEST EXPERIENCES this year.  The instructors were GREAT, FULL OF A LOT OF EXPERIENCE, with a great sense of humor. I WILL RECOMMEND this course to anyone who wishes to JOIN THE FREIGHT BROKER BUSINESS.

T. Thompson

The first week of class has been very informative about transportation brokering.
The instructors have been very helpful with clearing up knowledge and making me feel
comfortable with all of the information and the program that goes along with this career.

J. Gray

This course was very informative - the instructors are extremely knowledgeable. It has prepared me so well on becoming a successful agent!

B. Johnson

All of the instructors were good - I learned so much from this training class...they were amazing. I will refer this class to people in the future.

Summer is a great time to get out of the heat and learn a new skill or hone your current skill.  Come join us for one of our next classes of Freight Broker Training Basics or Advanced.  Take our course online or let me come and do a customized training at your freight brokerage.  Give me a call with questions or to sign up today.  You will be glad you did.

Moving forward,
