"Allen, just wanted to say "THANKS" for this has long been needed. I've been driving OTR for six years and was looking for another alternative, and your information led me in the right direction. I enjoyed listening to your audio CD's while I drove. I checked with one of the companies you listed and will start work there in 2 weeks, making more $$$ than I have in OTR! Thanks, Allen....

"Thank You Allen and Donna, I just read your whole book and you saved me from making a huge mistake. I am an inexperienced driver and I was about to sign on with either XXXXXXXX or XXXXXX. I wonít be doing that any time soon. I sensed that everything wasnít as rosy as they made it out to be. Your book was the best $$$ I ever spent. VERY TOUGH TO MAKE A DECENT LIVING IN THE USA NOWADAYS. EVERYTHING IS A SCAM. Thanks again."

"Dear Allen, Thanks so much for the book! I was this close to signing up here at the local XXXXXXXX School here in San Antonio. Thank you thank you! Thanks!"

"Dear Allen: I want to thank you for the "GREAT" product that I received from your company!! Thanks,"


"Dear Allen and Donna: My grandson was getting ready to sign up to attend a trucking school. He told me that it would just take three weeks and he would then be up and running as a completely licensed truck driver with the opportunity of making a very good living. Of course I was skeptical and since I didnít know anything about the trucking industry, I decided to do some research on the internet. When I found your website and read about your e-book, I decided to order it for him. Your book opened his eyes to the trucker school scams. He realized it would have been a huge loss of money and a bitter disappointment. If he still wants to be a truck driver, your book will guide him in the right direction. I would also like to point out the excellent customer service provided by Donna for writing me back so quickly when I had questions. Thank to both of you, this was an excellent and valuable experience"!

"Allen & Donna, The e-Book contains much useful information and validates my own short-lived experiences with OTR Carrier with CDL Training. Many thanks for this very useful reference. I consider it a must read! I only wish that I had found it about a month ago before I spent 5 days at an OTR training site. It would have saved me some valuable time. Iím now in the GO LOCAL phase of investigating a career change into the Trucking World. I new loyal "believer"

"Hi Allen, The book was very informative, thank you. I was considering going into the trucking industry and I believe you have saved my family and I from a trucking scam disaster. Hope to hear from you soon."

Michael L.

"Thank you for your timely response. I am 64 and grew up around freight handling (trucking, shipping, railroad). Perhaps for nostalgic or sentimental reasons Iíve always wanted to drive a truck for at least a year just to have the experience of being on the road. I grew up in a world where companies and employees were more committed and honest with each other. In todayís relationship between employer and employee there doesnít seem to be much of a priority (despite the rhetoric) on honesty, loyalty, or truth. I, therefore, so greatly appreciate people like yourselves who are willing to expose the REALITY of an occupation, not the spin put on by those who would benefit by painting an untrue picture.
Thanks Again,"
