We start with my first tentative steps becoming involved in the trucking industry with my first post on Expediters Online forums.   Ask questions from those that have been in the industry longer and you want to know something from them.  When we read something online and like what we have read we comment.  Subscribe to the online news subscriptions.  Read the free publications that can be picked up at the truck stops.  We become charter members of the Trucking Solutions Group to work with other owner operators to better our business.  Send emails to the Team Run Smart Pro's by using our posted emails.  Read or post on the Facebook threads asking and responding to questions.  Couple groups on Facebook to read Freightlier Team Run Smart, Women in Trucking Associating Inc, and Trucking Solutions Group.  Stay involved by asking questions and listening to the answers.  You will get out of these groups what you put in so get involved!
