Running by the Mile Book

Running By The mile Book


Owner Operators are the life blood of the transportation industry. Large and small companies are looking for skilled Owner Operators for their fleets and the opportunities are endless. Having the opportunity and being successful are too entirely different things however, as there are many stories of Owner Operators or small business owners being burned at the stakes from not understanding the world of business. I make it easy in this book called Running by the Mile, he breaks down the information into ten easy to follow steps that can be followed in order helping you make decisions important to the foundation of your business.

As a leader in the industry, business and leadership consultant I not only have the Running by The Mile by Bruce Outridge experience of business, but have been in the seat myself. My entrepreneurial spirit has lead me into many businesses and the Corporation that I lead to this day. Don’t follow the pack of being a disgruntled Owner Operator or getting the wrong information, listen to those who have the business sense and understand the importance of having knowledge of the trucking industry. My thirty years of knowledge and experience and leadership mindset are what is required to have success in today’s changing pace in the transportation industry. If you are looking at starting your own trucking operation or have been working at it for a while then this is the book for you.

As a financial advisor, for many years now, the most important part of building wealth seems to be keeping your family together. And lifestyle choices are such an important part of accomplishing this, allowing individuals to maintain their enthusiasm about their working lives! Your experience in the trucking industry and your objective analysis of various choices one can make during their career are tremendously helpful. You should be proud to have your name on it. Keep up the good work Bruce!”

tips for anyone in the transportation sector that is envisioning the entrepreneurial spirit or has already seized the opportunities to run their own company..  It is blatant that Bruce has captured the essence of the costs to operate a small business and thrusts open the door to knowledge and finances needed to operate profitably.  The read is easy, entertaining and educational.”
