5 Things to Consider When Selecting a Freight Broker Training Program
Cost/investment – everyone’s budget for starting a business is different. Online courses have a tendency to be more affordable while classroom instructor led course are more expensive.
How quickly can you start – most online course you can start immediately. Classroom style course may be limited to a few start dates per year, so it could involve waiting weeks or even months to get started.
Does it require travel/time away from work – Online course can be done from the convenience of your own home and do not require a commute while most instructor led course are offline at an offsite location which will require travel.
Experience/background of instructor – experience is key when selecting someone to teach you a specialized skill like becoming a freight broker. Do your research and make sure the person has started and grown a successful freight brokerage or freight agency before enrolling in their training.
Reputation/credibility – how many good and or bad reviews/recommendations/testimonials you find online about the course and/or the instructor can be indicative of the quality of the training you will receive.
Becoming a freight broker or freight agent can be a very lucrative business. Personally I have generated over $200 million in sales with my own freight brokerage.
BUT regardless of the training method you choose, I want you to understand that like anything worthwhile, it requires an investment in time, resources and money. It’s not some get rich quick scheme, it’s a real business.
If you treat it like a million dollar opportunity, it can provide millions in return.
If you treat it like a nickel and dime hobby, it will give you just that…nickels and dimes!
The secret is to find a someone who has already achieved what you are looking to do and absorb as much from their free and paid resources as you can!
