04: Bustin’ Ass and Makin’ Bank with Eric Ryan of Norton Transport

His bust-ass work ethic and competitive spirit led Eric Ryan to believe the owner-operator path would be the surest one to prosperity in the trucking industry. But Eric’s early experience in that lane handed his ass back to him. Yet, that early experience was a blessing in disguise that led Eric to Norton. 

At Norton, Eric has found the lane where his work ethic and competitive spirit can genuinely thrive. Hear how Eric has more than quadrupled both his pay and his peace on this week’s episode of the Six Figure Trucker with our host Justin Scott. Let’s get to the show!
