Freight Broker with Care (Author Interview)

Freight Broker with Care looks like a great freight brokerage guide.  Any plans to release similar themed books?  

I appreciate that, thank you.  Yes, absolutely!  I am currently working on the second volume of Freight Broker with Care.  I want to continue creating books that can assist and welcome new and upcoming brokers into this billion dollar industry.  My ultimate goal is to provide critical skills and information that most will only receive after some real-world experience.

 In addition, I want to eliminate the idea that the process of trial and error is king; which is the very reason why most upcoming businesses fail.  They do not have the financial cushion to withstand some of the challenges presented to them in the beginning.  There are a variety of different topics and scenarios that may occur within freight brokerages, and I’m interested in providing a heads up – or shall I say, ‘shed some light’ – to those who are interested.  Based on years of experience, understanding the culture of this industry has already been of great help to others, and I’d like to keep this process going.

What will readers get out of your guide?    

Readers will not only gain a deeper understanding of the steps and resources required to start a freight brokerage company from home successfully, but they will also begin to learn about some of the ins and outs of maintaining and growing their business with ease.  Understanding how to negotiate rates and how to dispatch, along with effective cold call techniques, are important factors when stepping into this competitive industry. Most beginning Freight Brokers struggle with getting their first shipment covered, and this is where Freight Broker with Care comes in handy for those who can use some guidance in this area as well.

What inspired you when writing Freight Broker with Care   

My inspiration stemmed from the admiration that I’ve received from others in terms of how I handle my own business. Those who started in this industry began asking me for advice, and as time persisted, it became a demand. From there, I decided to start a blog, and then the thoughts of writing a book began to creep into my mind. I wanted to share my knowledge on a broader platform because I felt it would help to benefit a larger audience.

When did you decide to become a writer?

I’ve always had a desire to write.  Throughout my extensive career in logistics, I have written countless SOP’s (Standard Operating Procedure) manuals that have helped to set a standard within organizations in hopes that new employees can obtain the information and jump right in with no delays.

However, once I noticed there was a need for me to lend my knowledge, skills, and experience to the industry, my decision to become a writer was virtually effortless.

When writing Freight Broker with Care, did anything stand out as particularly challenging?   

As I began writing, I assumed it would have been challenging to create unique content that has not already been presented by other independent freight brokers. However, after further research, it made more sense as to why so many people valued my knowledge – most of the information that is widely available doesn’t even come close to scratching the surface on some of the details that I cover extensively in Freight Broker with Care Vol.1.

How did you come up with the concepts and ideas in Freight Broker with Care?   

I focused on the top questions and concerns asked by those who are just starting out in the field. From there, I gathered, compiled, and analyzed this information, basing the structure of the book around my findings.

What do you like to do when not writing? 

Great question! Most days I am quite involved in my projects, but I have managed to make some free time outside of writing and am currently training for a half marathon.  I am also a combat veteran and am in tremendous need of a physical challenge again.

How can readers discover more about you and your work?   

Thank you for asking.  My readers can find me on all social media platforms. I’ve published several YouTube videos that provide value added information for new freight brokers, including freight broker affirmation songs, blog articles, and a training course website that many are raving about!
