EP24: From Broke to Financial Freedom with Bryan Bonar

He was broke. So broke that he had to quit smoking just to have enough money to eat. But, just two weeks shy of declaring bankruptcy, our guest today made the change of his life. He quit his job and made the leap to driveaway. Bryan Bonar quickly found freedom with himself as his boss and the open road in front of him. In a matter of months, he went from broke to boss! That was 20 years ago and, needless to say, he never looked back. He did eventually quit smoking, but this time money had nothing to do with it. He made that call the way he lives every day, on his own terms. We’re privileged today to hear from a veteran Six-Figure Trucker who knows what it’s like to live under the stress of lean times. But, lean days have a way of feeding a hunger for freedom and the fullness of life. Bryan Bonar has found both in the open roads of driveaway! Don’t miss today’s captivating episode of the #SixFigureTrucker.
