EP69: Riding Hard Lessons to Higher Ceilings with Abraham Gomez

Each of us can remember moments when our younger, more immature selves acted in ways we regret. Sometimes the consequences of those actions shadow us for years to come. But some face up to their mistakes and learn from them. They outrun that shadow and rise like stars in the night sky. Our guest today is one of those stars. Galvanized in the school of hard knocks, Abraham Gomez has become a man of tested integrity. He’s learned to prioritize safety, honesty, and responsibility. As a result, his star has already begun to rise in just a short time over the road with Norton. We’re proud to have him on our team and introduce him and a whole lot of wisdom to you on this episode of the #SixFigureTrucker.
