EP80: Turning Wheels and Pages: The Remarkable Path of Trucker-Author Jonathan Greene

The wrong crowd and some poor choices landed today’s guest behind bars when he was eighteen. After his release, not even McDonald’s would take the risk of hiring him. But, instead of letting these early errors lead to ruin, Jonathan Greene turned failure into fuel. Some premium, Top-Tier, high-octane diesel fuel, that is! Maximizing every opportunity he was given, Jonathan eventually landed his destination job in Trucking. As a driveaway driver, he pulls six figures and simultaneously finds inspiration for the side hustle that might make him famous…and may surprise you. Jonathan is a published author who’s about to release his second novel under the pseudonym DaVon Greene. He’s a man who’s turned trouble into triumph and has a prosperous road ahead. We couldn’t be happier to have this fascinating driver on our show today as we welcome Jonathan Greene on today’s episode of the #SixFigureTrucker.
