How many times in business and in life have you met someone who knows exactly what they want — probably not that often. But every once in a while, you’ll meet people like Jackie Rocha and Michael Barclay, a husband and wife Expediting team who parlayed ES’s Path to Ownership into a Much Better Alternative to truck finance to become true owners in pursuit of the American dream.
The noted French writer, poet, aristocrat, journalist, and pioneering aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry once famously said: “A goal without a plan is just a wish”. His words could have easily been the inspiration for the husband and wife transportation team of Ed and Yolanda Camacho. Their career has spanned over twenty years together and during that time, they have always had a plan to achieve their personal and business goals.
The desire to own your own transportation business can be a compelling proposition. You need a singular focus, determination and the right opportunity to be a Success In Trucking. Kelsey Gagnon and her husband/driving partner Bryan James left their jobs in the hospitality industry to pursue their dream of owning their own business and determining their own future. Their quest led them to ES’s Path to Ownership (PTO), where they got their MBA (Much Better Alternative) to truck finance. Their path was successful and something ES does every day!
It takes a strong commitment, a belief in yourself and the right opportunity to become a Success in Trucking. As you’ll see in this issue of Spotlight News, Diana Jorgensen and her husband Ed recently took ES’s PTO (Path to Ownership) to get their MBA (Much Better Alternative) to truck finance in order to move their business forward from a problematic lease purchase agreement.
Not everyone takes the same path in life or in business. That’s why it’s important to stay flexible in order to take advantage of the right opportunity when it arises. A perfect example of this principle is the husband and wife expediting team of Bob (Robert) and Jessie Hodgson who are signed on with Panther Premium Logistics, a service of ArcBest, as their carrier. Until recently, the Hodgson’s business focused on being contract drivers for various owners. But hard work and knowledge about ES’s PTO (Path to Ownership) and MBA (Much Better Alternative) to truck finance would soon pay dividends as they became eve more profitable as truck owners.
