negative dispatchers:

by Shaggy on 09/24/14

If you've been in a truck, you more than likely started at a company. They had their own rules. Their own regulations. Their own ways for pay, hometime, and discipline. Even if you owned your own truck.


You may have even went thru a few companies. All of those companies have one thing in common -- they all have dispatchers.

More often than not, those dispatchers have never set foot into a truck. They just have no idea what it takes to be a trucker. Especially in today's rough regulated world.

Perhaps now that you've managed to lasso that authority and all your paperwork and you're all set to be completely i-n-d-e-p-e-n-d-e-n-t.... the last thing you want is to hire someone so that they can tell you what to do.

Here's what sets Shaggy apart from all those other places. Shaggy's been in your shoes. He understands what you're going thru, what you want, when you want it, no matter how large or small.  He's been on the road away from his family. He's experienced first and second-hand all the frustrations with "hurry up and wait". He's been on the phone with over 1000 brokers and has figured out which ones pay and which ones ....don't.

We realize it's the last thing you want to do but if you were to just give Shaggy a call, you'll realize within 10mins what kind of passion that he has to help you succeed.

He can set you up for a huge W in this extremely large field of "what-am-i-doing"s? And he has trained his agents to feel the same way.

You've really got nothing to lose but a few minutes of chit-chatting.. so what're you waiting for?

​Consulting

Taken from Wikipedia:
A consultant (from Latin: consultare "to deliberate") is a professional who provides expert advice[1] in a particular area such as security (electronic or physical), management, education, accountancy, law, human resources, marketing (and public relations), finance, engineering, science or any of many other specialized fields.


“I bring value to clients through an objective and trust based partnership. Having been an owner, I have faced and understand their challenges. I utilize my
industry expertise to customize solutions, business strategies, policies and processes that meet their business goals. Ones that enable them to leverage
their investment, increase their competitive advantage and their credibility. My driving goal is to provoke enthusiasm and action.”

With the benefit of over 11 years of "in the trenches" experience, Shaggy has established a comprehensive list of best practices that will provide clients with the competitive edge they need to navigate their business and be successful.  There's an old saying, usually attributed to Confucius, that goes "Give a man a fish, and you'll feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you've fed him for a lifetime." There's an important life lesson in that simple statement.

 Some people translate it conceptually into something like "Education is the most important thing you 
can give someone to better his circumstances." Shaggy is not sure that's really getting to the heart 
of the matter, or always accurate for that matter — though it's probably close enough.


A translation, Shaggy likes a little more: Give a man the answer, and he'll only have a temporary 
solution. Teach him the principles that led you to that answer, and he will be able to create his own 
solutions in the future. ​If you refer to the difference between temporary solutions and 
principles for solving problems, you may very well not only improve someone's standard of living, 
but give that person the tools to improve himself (or herself, naturally).
