Hello friends, family, and everyone I may be forgetting. I'm asking for help in resetting my business, 2 years ago I started a trucking company as a owner operator, unfortunately due to the percentage taken off the top by the lease company and jbhunt I have seen very little if any revenue. The with this in mind I've invested everything I have and sometimes what I didnt have to stay afloat as long as I have. My background is that of a Army Infantry 10 year veteran with several deployments under my belt, father of 3 amazing children, and a short term contractor for triple canopy. I started this business to "hang up my guns" and be able to spend more time with my friends and family. Unfortunately this has not worked, instead I spend so much time I'm living in my truck. The goal of my go fund me is to cut out both the lease company and jbhunt in a effort to become a full owner operator. I would be doing this by either paying off my current CMV which may or may not be a lemon, or based on how much can be raised use the funds to for a down payment for a reliable new CMV. Once this is accomplished I have several vendors that are willing to continue doing business with me. Those who know me know that I always have a plan but in this situation I have my back against the fence with no other options. I would only be using the bare minimum of the funds as a down payment for the new truck and anything that is not used in the purchase will be redistributed back to everyone who helped me in this time of need. I can not continue to survive off of zero earnings week after week. I understand that due to covid-19 everyone is hurting anything you can do would be of great help in this venture. Thank you all for your time.
