EP45: It’s Work, But Not Really with Alvin Ross

Hall of Fame hitters are successful about 30% of the time. The greatest three-point shooter in the history of the NBA is 42% of the time successful. But, our guest today is batting a thousand. He’s currently hitting 100% on all of our measurables, and he’s doing it in style. When it comes time to deliver, no one is statistically better than Mr. 100%, Alvin Ross! As a former owner/operator in this space, Alvin has learned the importance of essentials like communication, customer relations, and responsibility. But now that he’s found his way to driveaway as an independent contractor, he’s added some stress-free fun to the mix. He’ll say it doesn’t even feel like work when it’s this much fun. Tune in today to hear his story and what makes this true professional tick. We’re pleased to welcome Alvin Ross on this episode of the #SixFigureTrucker.
