Owner operators like to talk about how much money they're making. The trick is they're trying to fool you (and themselves) by talking about revenues, not profits.

Don't be fooled by what we call Owner Operator Math here at Trucking Truth. Learn the realities of owning a big rig and why you shouldn't waste your time considering buying your own truck.
