EP49: A Lesson or Blessing with Driveaway Veteran Marvin Miller

Though we unashamedly extoll the life-changing opportunities within driveaway trucking on this podcast, we also seek to reflect on the challenges that surface in this industry. For example, there is always the potential for obstacles like inclement weather or mechanical breakdowns over the road. The driver’s response to issues like these will make or break them. Our guest today has learned to invoke what he calls the Serenity Prayer in moments of misfortune or frustration. As a result, Marvin Miller says that his glass is never half-empty. As he will teach us today, everything you face will offer a lesson or a blessing, and both can work to your advantage, depending upon your response. We’re pleased to welcome this 17-year veteran and his wisdom to the show! Tune in now to this episode of the #SixFigureTrucker.
