Episode 72: Back to Basics

EWe’ve spent the last few episodes talking about the influence the pandemic has had on the market. We decided to get '“back to basics” and discuss the principles that we use and implement that allow us to survive in a crisis market.

Episode 72: Back to Basics

Episode 71: Optimistic About the Market

EIt's been 20 days since our last podcast. We've been busy keeping five trucks running during this pandemic. The market is down, but it isn't dead. We've had to work really hard to keep everyone loaded, but we have kept the trucks moving. We have found some silver linings and we talk about how we are optimistic for the future.

Episode 70: The Market Responds to Crisis

We're approaching 30 days into the crisis that has gripped the entire world. Markets are shut down and people are terrified to leave their homes. We talk about what we have seen in our own interactions with the market and what we think the future could hold. The Blue Ribbon Business Model is being proven in this time of uncertainty. No debt and low cost of operation positions us to still be here long after the crisis has passed. We now have five trucks operating and we just hired two new drivers last week. This is certainly a fascinating time to be in the trucking business. SHOW NOTES: Larken Rose on YouTube OOIDA asks Trump to "help" Truckers 800 Professors Write Letter to Mike Pence

Episode 69: Essential Business

EThings have certainly escalated quickly since our last episode on March 13th. We break down the hysteria surrounding the actions of the state and media and how it has affected the trucking industry. We also answered some listener email. Buckle up and grab a helmet. You won't need a ventilator for this episode!

Episode 68: Never Let A Good Crisis Go To Waste

For us, silence is not an option. We have watched the world lose its mind over the last couple days. Events are cancelled, markets have crashed, people are terrified. We are not allowing the fear to distract us. This is an important episode. We need to talk about what this means for today and what it means for the future.

Episode 67: Ignorance Is A Preference

This episode contains a lot of things that need to be said. We live in a time when information flows more freely than at any time before in all of human history. The answer to nearly any question you can think of is available IF you are willing to spend the time seeking it out. In the year 2020, being ignorant is a choice. Unfortunately, it seems like being ignorant is also a preference for a lot of people. So sit down, buckle up, grab a helmet and get ready. This episode will either make you mad, or it will make you free.

Episode 66: You're Asking the Wrong Questions

EWe have recently had a truck open up because a driver had a family medical issue at home and he could not be on the road any longer. We started going through applications we've received since we started doing the podcast. What we found are that people are asking a lot of the wrong questions.

BONUS EPISODE: DOES LANDSTAR REALLY TAKE 35% OF MY MONEY?

This is a hot topic and one that we need to set the record straight on. Too often i will hear people say that Landstar takes 35% of the revenue. While it is true that 35% of the linehaul revenue goes to Landstar, it is important to understand where that 35% goes, what it pays for, and who it truly belongs to

Episode 65: Farmers Are Buying 40 Year Old Tractors. Let's Talk About Why

We recently discovered an article that talks about how Farmers are buying decades-old tractors because they can acquire them at a fraction of the cost of new equipment and they can actually repair them without the need for complicated computer diagnostic equipment. We use this opportunity to discuss why Blue Ribbon buys ten year old trucks that others have discarded.
