Helped Me With How To Be Resourceful With Time

Much like the many book in this series, I've learned a great deal about the CDL industry. As with any financial profession that involves soul proprietorship, it is a risk and a commitment that can either make or break one. This is was a great listen and helped me with how to be resourceful with time, money, security, and taking action in the field. Since we live in a world of many distractions due to the amount of technology that we have, this book also helped out in how to network using such means, while shutting out distractions. Recommended.

Step out of the employee mindset!

This is the 3rd book I've listened to about CDL business and it does not disappoint. Helping me think like a business minded entrepreneur, make and meet my goals, and my favorite is the 3 lifestyle habits for success. Thinking about the future and possible bumps in the road doesn't scare me as I know how to prepare for these chalenges like tax laws, keeping up my trucks and equipment. The templates for the business plan is a huge help in visualizing my goals! great series!

Step-By-Step Guide

A three-book series of “how-to books” with the first one outlining how one can start and manage a CDL business, Joe Ryder provides solid strategies and advice on how to start your own trucking business, build a mission and vision, and overcome the many challenges. This book begins the series with insight on shaping your CDL and achieving your goals. Ryder’s strategies and instructions in this first book are clear cut and outlined explicitly detailing what you as a new owner should be focused on doing.

Chris Abell, the narrator, uses his strong voice to speak with confidence and with an instructional tone. Spoken clearly and with a steady rhythm, Abell’s narration is pleasant to hear.

Very informative provided you are interested in beginning a CDL; however, I suspect much of the basic information Ryder outlines within these three books could be used more widely with other potential businesses. As with all step-by-step books, there are things missing that might prove valuable but that is what learning and doing research is all about.

There were no issues with the production or quality of this audiobook.

Well meaning but to simple and not realistic

Having now read over 250 of the leading business books and counting and more importantly started and unsuccessfully and successfully run a number of unrelated businesses over many decades, I feel it's very important to caution would be entrepreneurs. Proceed with great caution. Don't let yourself be seduced by the great "romanticized myth of entrepreneurship." Ironically, most books about entrepreneurship would do their readers a much better service if they first presented all the most relevant hard, cold facts about entrepreneurship, starting with the fact that 90% of all new businesses fail within ten years of founding, and then actually tried to dissuade would be entrepreneurs from attempting to start a business. After which, for the brave souls that still wanted to pursue starting a business, a very sober and realistic discussion of what is truly involved, such as plan on working 80+ hours per week for at least the first three years after start up, would be presented.
If you really want to start to gain an understanding of what is truly involved in starting a business in the modern technocracy we live in today, I would suggest these three books are a good place to start, "Zero to One" by Peter Thiel, "The Hard Thing About Hard Things" by Ben Horowitz and "The Lean Start Up" by Eric Ries.
Further, it's so important to realize that every business today is a technology business. As Mark Andreessen famously stated, "software is eating the world." Moreover, the transportation industry is undergoing tectonic shifts that will disrupt and reshape the entire industry over the next twenty years. Just as starting a traditional cab company ten years ago, with the advent of Uber, Lyft and Didi etc, today, in hindsight is seen as a suicide mission, this will also most likely be the case for traditional freight brokerage and trucking companies ten years from now.
There are obvious, public multi billion dollar firms (Amazon, Tesla etc) and not so obvious multi million dollar VC backed start ups (Embark, Kodiak Robotics) that are collectively spending 100s of billions of dollars to capture and monopolize the entire logistics value chain over the next ten years.

Insightful, Useful, Valuable

Both my dad and uncles got their CDL's, and had always talked about how much money they could have made if they'd stayed in the business. Every time I asked them how, they never elaborated because it was too sore of a subject, so I started looking around and found this audiobook. CDL Minded Entrepreneur breaks down a number of the insider secrets for truck drivers looking to maximize their CDL, and how to leverage their skill-set for maximum profits.

The author is extremely well informed, and the narrator speaks clearly and is easy to understand. After listening to the entire audiobook, I am seriously confident in considering a path as a truck driver with a CDL, and pursue a life of both physical and financial freedom. Would DEFINITELY recommend for anyone who already has their CDL, or is thinking about getting theirs.

Sound advice in this audio!

This book was very well written and I believe it has sound advice on how to start your own business. This audio will get you excited to implement what you are being taught and guided to do with the simple step system that is laid out. I appreciate how the author spends a tremendous amount of time in advising the reader on the right preparation work that will inevitably set you up for success in business, as this is very helpful for all starters on the entrepreneurial journey to find rewarding freedom. I found a lot of useful information including how to create a sustainable long lasting business in the CDL industry and in any other business model that I might decide to explore. Great book!

Applicable even outside of CDL business

I know very little about CDL business until I listened to this audiobook. Going through the CDL Minded Entrepreneurs Action Plan Workbook is like having a business coach but with a much cheaper price tag! The questions and exercises in the workbook really helps me find the core and purpose of my business even though it's not CDL related. I recommend this book for any new entrepreneur who wants to find inspiration from Joe Ryder's CDL business model and implementing it into your own.
