I listen EVERYDAY!

I learned about this guys through the TIA and stumbled across their podcast. I listened to one of the episodes and was completely hooked. Nate and Ben give great advice for both new and experienced freight brokers. I make it a point to listen to an episode before I start my day and when I am winding down. Do yourself a favor and start with episode #124: Setting Goals if you are looking for practical advice to get started and measure yourself!

Mbcflower ,

Great Find!

These guys are informative and engaging. Some podcasts I’ve found do a lot of hem hawing around through out the podcast. Time is valuable! These guys get down to the brass tacks! I’ll be going back to listen to previous episodes. I’m a fan!

Billy The Freight Broker ,
