OK so I’ve always wanted to be an entrepreneur and I already have a failed attempt at that in the past. I was putting on local shows for underground musicians and artists.
as with anything in life it was a chance I took that didn’t pay out. After that I went into a slump and then plateaued at just taking care of myself and getting my personal affairs in order. I went from being unmedicated and undiagnosed to being diagnosed with bipolar and taking medicine for it. I decided that I needed to go to school again and finish my bachelors since I already had my associates. I applied at Depaul and got in three separate years in a row but could never get the full tuition amount and therefore never even started classes even though I signed up for them. I planned on going to school and just working at Jimmy John’s like I had been for the past eight years or so. But after finding out that I was awarded no scholarships and that I wouldn’t be able to attend the Paul for the third year in a row I decided on a different course of action. My friend was doing medical hot shots which is small freight and cargo that needs to be delivered within 24 hours or less. He and I talked about bringing me on for a while but I resisted because I was still planning on going to DePaul. This was going to be my new adventure the next stage in life. Needless to say I think I finally found some thing is that I can do very well and actually enjoy. I truly feel like I belong on the road. And I’m getting to see places that I never thought I would see it before. I’ve been doing this in my prius and it’s been going well but since my friend and I have been sweeping the dispatchers boards of all the runs they want us to step up our game. They have been talking to us about acquiring either a 26 foot box truck or a high ceiling sprinter van (Mercedes Benz make and model). Basically to get a fleet started Which they could then hire and contract to do bigger, more profitable Loads with. So after talking with my friend about this for a bit we got the information and broke down some simple math. At the bare minimum to get our fleet started with a van/truck, US dot number and MC number, We would need somewhere in the ballpark of $8000 -$25,000. If this goes through we would install a small cot in the back and take turns driving in teams of three so that way we could stay on the road essentially 24 seven for weeks at a time and bring in the most profit.
This is what I’m asking for today. Please note that it has also been a really rough year for me because I got kicked out of my dad‘s, exiled from his family, I had to work through the entire Covid pandemic in food service, I contracted Covid for a bit, my long-term girlfriend and I broke up and then within the same month my mom got diagnosed with colon cancer. And to top it all off a month after that my dog Was attacked by some rescue dogs that we were fostering at my roommates house. He ended up dying after they tried to perform life-saving surgery to no avail. A $5000+ bill.
I am a businessman and I currently have no family but I’m trying to leave a legacy for my kids since I am technically the last male Hendrickson and I am Carrying on our family name. I am willing to be completely transparent and follow up any questions and answers anybody might have and develop a working relationship. I am an honest man and don’t want any trouble just need a helping hand. And on the other side of the token freight cargo and logistics is very profitable right now due to decreasing/retiring workforce and the aftermath of the pandemic making this a viable venture for anyone right now.
thank you for your time and consideration.
