#103 Mike Stewart - How To Build A Million Dollar Fuel Transport Company | Reliant Tank Division

#103 Mike Stewart - How To Build A Million Dollar Fuel Transport Company | Reliant Tank Division

Mike Stewart is literally in a big league of his own.

The 34 year old entrepreneur has built an impressive fleet of 9 Trucks and 15 trailers, specializing in hauling hazardous materials (HAZMAT) that consist of everything from Fuel to Wine and Orange Juice.

And it took him about 3 years.

The California native attributes his rapid growth in this niche to a few key things. One, he and his team’s attention to performance, Two, prioritizing his driver’s and having extremely low turnover. and Three, the fact that Hauling Hazardous materials is not over saturated like some of the other trucking niches. In fact, the demand is so high that Mike implores other to get in now.

The opportunities are great endless.

Mike started his driving career at 23 following in his fathers footsteps, who also is a tenured driver. He began working for CR England as a company driver, but quickly became a owner operator seeing the high earning potential. Things with CR England , would not last long. Although Mike built up to 2 trucks, he got frustrated with the industry and sold them both.


After some “time off” Mike decided to haul fuel because he knew it was the highest paying local CDL job in his area and he had previous HAZMAT experience. He took on the most difficult fuel hauling position and developed a passion for it. He would even grow to have supervisory role in his company, but his dreams for the company were bigger than their own.
“The company did not see their own potential!”
Mike wanted bigger!

Mike took what he learned and all his HAZMAT experience, purchased a truck and a old tanker trailer and started Reliant Tanker Division.

Fast forward Today, Mike has grown the company to not only hauling Fuel, but to specializing in all things HAZMAT with a mix of tankers, reefers, flatbeds and more. He has mange to carve out his own lane and has audacious plans for the future.

#100 Kim Wages - Your Favorite Fleet Owners, Secret Weapon |The Silent Partner

Kim Wages is the best-kept secret for trucking company owners and investors.

With thousands of trucking company authorities going active monthly, driver processes and procedures are often overlooked in haste. Kim spotted this problem and now with his signature “onboarding process” has helped over 180 trucking companies set a standard of excellence before their driver and truck tires touch the road.

Kim, the Queens, NY naitive, grew up in a rough evoirnement that he refused to become a product of. His father was imprisoned, when he was at a young age, causing Kim and his older brother to grow up fast enduring the streets while seeking a more productive path.

“Kim Kim” as he was know by in the neighborhood would grow and soon leave NY behind relocating to the Altanta where he got his start in the workforce after year's of trying to figure things out. Kim started his career working in a warehouse, growing into a leadership role at 20. He followed that by going to school to become a air plane mechanic but later realized that it wasn't for him.

Subsequently, Kim got his CDL embarking on the journey with a entrepreneurial mindset.

He would start off as a team driver and would later grow his own fleet of trucks through the Landstar system.

Later, utilizing his knowledge, Kim would become the go-to guy, implementing “driver onboarding” as a white-label service for new upstarts. This service includes Meeting your company driver on location and taking them through a meticulous “Onboard Process”.

Also, During the pandemic Kim and a partner also used their mechanical knowledge of trucks to do trucks sales, finding used trucks at auction, making them roadworthy, and re-selling them to customers looking to buy used at a substantially lower than market value cost, moving roughly 15 trucks p/month.

With all these accomplishments, Kim and his team are just getting started and the future is bright.

This experience would be a pivotal moment for Domo as he would learn the dump truck industry.

He would establish himself as a worker and find out how, when and where to get work by making all the right connections with some key players In the industry.

Soon, Domo felt that he was Ready for entrepreneurship. In 2017, Domo purchased his own brand new #kenworth dump truck to drive and started Pull-up bar master, LLC named after his passion for fitness and doing pull ups.

In 2018 he purchased his 2nd truck and last year in 2020 he purchased 7 more.

I can assure you, this podcast is one of the realest most uncut show we’ve recorded to date. Domo gives us a unfiltered look into the dump truck industry, his very own personal growth and overcoming adversity.

Domo says it best here

“Being an entrepreneur definitely has it’s benefits

I just pull over and work out

#94 Chris Bright - How To Build A 7 Figure Last Mile Operation In Under 2 Years

#Startsmallendbig Chris Bright represents the true essence of Truck N’Hustle.
An Avid listener and supporter of the show, Chris started his business under 2 years ago, but with the help of his community and team has grown a flourishing last-mile operation that consists of 7 box trucks and 12 Sprinter Vans. In total, they deliver about 5,000 packages per day.

Chris has always been a entrepreneur. His first passion and business was a print shop, which he invested every thing he had into but would ultimately fail.
After that experience, Chris wanted to try his hands at something new and was interested in the exploding trucking industry.

With little knowledge Chris began to do some research. He would find that the expense of getting stated with a semi truck was a bit more that he could invest at the moment.

This is when Chris found the term “courier service”. He would began to explore last -mile logistics and it would become his niche and also his passion.

To start, Chris went out and got his first box truck while still working a full time job. He would work his 9-5 during the day and deliver packages for Amazon at night. He would slowly grow his operation adding on additional box trucks.

Chris would then begin to connect with his community to scale and build no limit truck co. To where it is today.

Purpose driven, Chris's goal is to create 100 jobs in his community, of which the number is currently at 35 and counting. Job creation is Chis and his teams most important KPI (key performance indicator). Join our Free Webinar Tuesday May 18th 2021 “How To Build A 7 Figure Last Mile Operation”

#88 Thomas "Tank" Johnson - Building The Largest Network Of Black-Owned Trucking Companies With UPS

Thomas “Tank” Johnson’s
story starts out like many who have come from poverty, unfortunate circumstances and a rough childhood. Growing Up in Memphis, TN, Tank had his share troubles. Football would become his ticket to college and would get him out of that environment.

Tanks talents would eventually lead him to the NFL where he would have a fruitful career and retire with the Falcons. The NFL would provide opportunities for Tank and his family that were beyond his wildest dreams coming from his circumstances. Tank would have many memorable moments and enjoyed his career ,however, like most athletes life after sports can be an uphill battle and very difficult to find your footing.

Tank had to start over, and find a career outside of sports. One of the most pivotal moments for Tank would be joining a program for Athletes going back into the workforce.

Through this program, Tank had now found transportation. He started off by working as an intern to learn before starting his own company with some friends.

Through some ups and downs and and extremely interesting turn of events, Tank, would eventually partner with UPS . Tank’s company did such a great job with UPS they offered to invest in his company to increase his capacity as they had interest in diversifying with minority carriers and simply did not have enough performing at Tank’s companies level.

At this moment a lightbulb went off for Tank “How about a Consortium concept?” Instead of taking the opportunity for himself Tank decided to reach out to his Network and offer the work to other minority carriers he knew. Not long afterwards he would pool together over 500 minority carrier units for UPS and his concept became a reality.

With this consortium concept, Tank and his team controls and helps to allocate millions of UPS’s spend to Only black and minority carriers. Tank has plans to replicate this concept with other larger outfits and create more opportunities in the future. To learn more about the consortium click here and UniteUs Global

#75 - Brittany K. Barnett - 90 Days, 17 People Free From Life In Prison And A Trucking Company!

Inspired by a flawed criminal justice system Brittany Barnett left her job as a corporate lawyer to take on our judicial system, “pro bono”, which was and is still disproportionately jailing black and brown people convicted of drug crimes based on unfair, bias and outdated laws.
Brittany first came to national attention when she and her co-counsel were able to successfully litigate the release of 17 people in 90 days serving unfair sentences for drug crimes.
Her organization “Buried Alive” received funding and endorsement from television personality and influencer #kimkardashianwest .
This organization was founded by Brittany, along With Co-founders #Sharandajones, successful entrepreneur and criminal justice advocate and #Coreyjacobs, Senior advisor to Sean P Diddy Combs at Combs Enterprises. Both, Sharanda and Corey, were at one point sentenced to life in prison for federal drug charges with NO prior drug convictions and were cases in which Brittany litigated.


To date, Brittany along with co-counsel has litigated over 50 cases for early release and has been extremely active utilizing her resources for criminal justice reform.
Her passion , activism and fight has been well documented. What some may not know
Is that Brittany is also a trucking entrepreneur.

Staying true to her WHY, Brittnay teamed up with one of her former clients, who served 15 years in prison, to build a Trucking company, Trustworthy Trucking. She has since grown her fleet and looks to expand in 2021 as she learns the business and provides opportunities for the formerly incarcerated people.

Brittnay hopes to inspire and also help fund others in their endeavors as they re-enter society.

Wait there is more ...

This year Brittany also penned the Best Selling and Top rated #1 book by Amazon “A Knock At Midnight’” in which she’s shares her journey and the stories that guided her path. A Knock at Midnight: A Story of Hope, Justice, and Freedom

Adopted at 3 years old by his uncle who was in the trucking business Umair (Sam) Chaudry @uc78612 faced many challenges early and throughout his life in his 28 years.
As troubled youth, by the age of 15 he went to prison and did a 5 year sentence.
After returning home, he entered the workforce working low income jobs due to lack of opportunities for someone with his past.
Sam then reconnected with the Trucking Business and worked his way up as a dispatcher managing a mid size fleet of 14 trucks single handed.
His skill would be recognized and he was offered an opportunity to work with the owner of company on a new endeavor.
Shark Logistics was born. Due to a lack of knowledge, Sam’s company did not do well the first year and was not profitable. They would later get things on track and recoup some of their losses.
As The future began to look bright, growing the company to 6 Trucks, things were derailed by an accident that involved a fatality and Sam’s company driver.
This would change Sam’s outlook on life and business. He than shifted his focus to helping others as his company was caught up in legalities.
With @_uconsulting Sam wanted to help companies (30 + ) not make the mistakes he did along with helping them make more money and connecting them with the right people along the way.
