EP86: A Special Thanksgiving Tribute to Truck Drivers with Calvin Norton

We’re on a mission here at the Six Figure Trucker to elevate and celebrate drivers on this podcast…and frankly, it’s not difficult to do. In fact, we’re increasingly convinced that the men and women of trucking – and especially our drivers here at Norton Transport – are some of the most impressive, fascinating, and accomplished people in America. So today, we just wanted to pause to say, “Thank you.” In fact, Calvin Norton, the founder of Norton Transport, also wanted to stop by and offer his gratitude. Men and women of the Trucking industry, you deserve and have our respect. Thank you for the sacrifices you make and the services you offer so that the people of this great nation can enjoy the life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness afforded us here. We need more men and women like you, and we’re proud to stand behind you. 

From all of us here at the Six Figure Trucker, HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

EP85: Jetsetter to Trucker: Ray McMillan’s High-Flying Driveaway Life

At any given moment, today’s guest could be spotted pretty much anywhere around the globe. He’s no spy, but looking at his passport or driver logs, you might conclude that Ray McMillan is an international man of mystery. Whether he’s enjoying a five-star meal in Shanghai, walking the beaches of Guam, or cruising the streets of his hometown in Manhattan, Ray is living his best life through the world of transportation. As a flight attendant, Ray gets paid to see the world through the friendly skies. But, when the wheels of his jet touch down, he routinely slides behind the wheel of a truck in need of delivery. His expert planning and savvy use of load boards ensure that wherever he goes in this beautiful world, he’s making good money in the process. Join us today for a fascinating conversation with a guy who just may be the most interesting man in trucking!


EP84: Driving with Purpose: Shantel Chandler’s Route from Bus Aisles to Gourmet Meals

We never cease to be amazed at the people we meet within the beautiful business of trucking. The men and women who sit behind the wheel of trucks across this country are impossible to stereotype. Today’s guest is a great example. Shantel Chandler is a 10-year veteran of Driveaway and is a lady who loves the open roads. In the quiet privacy of a cab, she connects with God and relishes the opportunity to experience the various sights, sounds, and cultures of His world. But that’s just on the weekends and summers. You see, throughout the school year, Shantel drives a bus where she does far more than just safely delivering children. It’s more of a mission than a job, as she deeply cares for the kids she transports. In fact, the route she chose is one that regularly picks up children who are homeless. When those kids get on her bus, there’s a McDonald’s bag on their seat most mornings – she just has to ensure that her kids aren’t starting their school day on an empty stomach. But that’s not all there is to know about Shantel Chandler. On top of all of this, she’s a world-class chef who runs a thriving catering business and is currently preparing to open her own restaurant. We have no idea how she pulls all of it off, and we’re so pleased to get a few minutes of her valuable time for today’s conversation. Prepare to be inspired as you listen to this episode of the #SixFigureTrucker.
