With the implementation of the ELD Mandate, I would think drivers would have more time for rest or time to kill doing things that are productive or things that are not so productive. All these things depend on the person. A great thing to remember is successful people waste very little time!

Back in the old day, we could get around the hours of service regulations very quickly; a driver could pretty well run as many miles as he could stand, so we didn’t have a lot of free time. That worked until the DOT got wise to us. They have worked for years to get the Electronic Logging Devices installed in the trucks, and now it looks like they have succeeded. We don’t know if the drivers can figure out how to get around the computer, but I am positive there will be a lot of them try!

Several people ask “is Wealthy Affiliate for Beginners.” This short review will give you 5 Reasons Wealthy Affiliate is for Truckers and beginners.

#1 Start Part Timeis wealthy affiliates for beginners

The #1 reason to join Wealthy Affiliate is a person can start part-time, while you are still driving, and build it up to where you are making a pretty good part-time income. My short little blog/article here is not about trying to talk you out of driving a truck

A lot of you got into this industry because this is something you wanted to do or something you are passionate about. If you are like me, when I got into the industry I wanted to do a good job and worked hard to do that, but more and more they keep throwing curve balls at me, making it harder and harder to do a good job or make any money. Can not go into all the details, but all of you that have been in the business very long know what issues a person is confronted with every day.

From talking to drivers that are working today, a lot of drivers tell me nothing has changed. With the implementation of the ELDs’, it is going to be harder for a driver to make a good living, for a while. After some time companies will have a reality check and realize they will have to pay more to keep good drivers and maintain proper equipment. There more than likely will be a lot of changes in the trucking industry over the next few years, a lot of them good and a lot not so good.

Wealthy Affiliate is for real and about learning a new skill while you are still working. You may ask “what is this new skill”? It is all about Affiliate Marketing and building great Websites. If you have a reliable laptop and a good internet connection you can sit in your sleeper for two or three hours a day and learn all about this.

With this system, you can have a website up and running in one to two hours, even less if you have some experience. Once, you have your website up you can learn how to make money with it.

#2 Freedom to Work When You Want

We have over 100,000 members worldwide. If you have a question or problem someone is there to answer your question. That is why reason #2 is being able to work when you want; there is always someone awake working no matter what time it is where you may be working.

You will have the freedom to work when you want and the privilege to work at home. With the advancement of technology these days, a person can get an internet connection just about everywhere. About every fast food restaurant and truck stop has WiFi now, so a person can go in if they want to, set up and work as long as you like. Just tell the waitress to keep the coffee coming.

#3 Work At Home5 reasons wealthy affiliate is for truck drivers

When I was driving not a day went by that I did not think what it would be like to have a reasonable job, be at home to see the wife and kids on a daily basis. If you start doing this part-time while you are on the road, you can gradually begin to get things situated so you can work at home. Most of you can see the benefits of working from home, but I am going to mention a few here.

  • Your office Can Be Any Kind – You can set up a beautiful office in the corner of your living room/family room or on the kitchen table
  • Your Office Can Be Anywhere – A person is not restricted to his or her home. The way technology is nowadays you can take your work to the beach, work while traveling or at your favorite concert
  • You Will Save Money – No more gas or car repair bills going to and from work, no more cleaning bills for a suit or cute clothes and you can save on lunches. Just go to the kitchen and heat up your favorite meal.
  • Your Schedule Can Be Your Own – To be successful in any business you must set your schedule, but when you work for yourself your plan is your own.
  • You Can Learn More and Become More Independent – The education here at Wealthy Affiliate is unlimited. What you learn here is like none other and the many ways you learn how to make money here will make you more independent.
  • You Can Stay A Lot More Focused – With some self-control and a constant routine, you will soon learn to eliminate the TV, and you don’t have to worry about co-workers stopping by to socialize.
  • You Can Avoid Office Politics – We all know how that is and this is one of my favorites, you don’t have to listen to the latest scandal, gossiping and provocations.

#4 Do Something You are Truly Interested In

Maybe some of you have started your driving career and for whatever reason have lost interest. I started losing interest after about five years. Don’t know why, but that is the way it happened. I mean I still liked the driving part and seeing all the magnificent scenery around our Nation, but all the other things were happening in the industry, and we started losing interest.

After, becoming an Owner/Operator my interest in the industry perked up quite a bit. Probably because an O/O has more control over the day to day operation of the job and a more significant stake in their business. See one of my earlier post about becoming an Owner/Operator if you are interested; I feel this is the best way to go if you want to stay in the industry. But at the same time, you can become a Wealthy Affiliate member and build up that income for when you retire.

If a person losses interest in the job he or she has, then it is hard to do a good job and the desire to do a good job vanishes. Our reason #4 is to do something you are genuinely interested in. No one stays in a job for very long that they are not excited about or happy doing.

Create Your Websiteaffiliate marketing amazon

Before you create a Website, it is critical to think of something that you are interested in or something you are passionate about. Join Wealthy Affiliate for something that a person can regain an interest in and be excited about. The thing that interested me the most was learning how to build Websites, and that may be your interest. Or you could be the type of person that is not too interested in Website building and wants to find products to sell online.

Other people have an interest in blogging, about issues that are close to their heart. These could be social issues, political, sports, technology, or medical and the list goes on. There is no end to subjects to write about. Some of you may be worried that you have no writing experience, let me tell you this is not necessary! Blog writing is not your college term paper; one has to write much the same as they would talk to someone. For some useful information on Blogging, Click Here!!

No matter what you choose, you must build a website. Here at Wealthy Affiliate, you have the most comprehensive training in the world. The first seven days here at Wealthy Affiliate is free, and I can about guarantee you can have your Website up and running before you know it. The next step is to find products to sell, or you can start blogging.

#5 Great for Retired Drivers

My reason #5 for becoming an independent entrepreneur with Wealthy Affiliate is this has to be the best job for retired people. There is talk about how Social Security is running out of money. More and more people are retiring, and fewer people are paying in. I am sad to say I do believe them. It is the law of averages; you can’t pay out more than you are taking in, forever.

Our government has been doing this for some years now and sooner or later it is going to catch up. I am afraid it is going to be sooner. Overall the Baby Boomer generation has not done well at all when it comes to saving for retirement, and I hate to say it, Truck Drivers may be some of the worst.

If you are one of those that have not saved enough for retirement or thinking that if they reduce your Social Security, you will not have enough to enjoy your retirement, then Wealthy Affiliate is for you. That is why it is a great idea to start now, part-time, build up your business, and start making money. It could be you will be able to retire and get away from the rat race sooner!

  1. Hi,
    That’s a very interesting angle you’ve taken with this posting and I’ve liked it! You’ve really shown how value can be added to time that would otherwise have been lost and you’ve even gone ahead and given us steps to follow.
    And I think truckers doing affiliate marketing or blogging can have limitless things to blog authoritatively about. This could include trucks (of course!), traffic, cargo, clearing and forwarding, travel, engines and automotive information, work-life balance, among other things, don’t you agree, Wayne?

    1. Thank you SmileAfresh, glad you liked my post. Yes, that is what I am trying to do, to get Drivers interested in other opportunities. Most all Truck Drivers have laptops now and can get good internet connections at any Truck Stop. 

      I know I drove for 25+ years and if I can make a go of it, a lot of them can do it too. Some of them may be interested. You are right, they do have a lot to talk about!

      THX hope to talk soon!  Wayne

  2. When I first came across your article, I thought it read “5 reasons Wealthy Affiliate is for tricksters” LOL.

    The mind can be a funny thing sometimes!

    But on a serious note, I think it’s great that WA has numerous benefits for truckers, and in fact, anyone who wants to start an online business and earn an income.

    Reason #4 definitely resonates with me because I’ve tried to make money in the past with things that I had no interest in and I ended up quitting.

    When you truly follow your passion or at least something you’re interested in, not only will building an online business be fun, but you’ll have big success too.

    I also really appreciate the 4 steps to building an online business with Wealthy Affiliate because it shows that the process is simple.

    With all the reasons you’ve shared, I don’t see why any trucker or even retired one would pass up on WA!!


    1. Thank you Neil for stopping by my website! Your comments are certainty welcome. Maybe that would be an attention getter, Wealthy Affiliate for tricksters’, if you could figure a way to create some content around that!

      Yes, that is what I would like to do, get some Drivers interested in Wealthy Affiliate so they can start making some money and have more in their retirement years. I know I almost waited too long. I am an old Truck Driver doing pretty good here and enjoying everything about it!    THX Neil Hope to talk soon!

  3. Hey WayneTowns, excellent post. Your knowledge is a shining example that those who have a backup plan for making money off the clock are just plain better prepared than everyone else.
    My brother is a trucker and suffice it to say that he has some down time so your post helps a lot and I have something to pass onto him.
    Have you ever been a trucker, if so, is this post a reflection of that?
    Also, I like that your post is not just focusing on people who are unemployed but people who are working but looking to get out of the 9-5 grind, so kudos!

    1. Thank You R.J. for all of your great comments! They are appreciated. 

      Yes I was a Driver for 27 years, until I had to quite because of health. Another reason for this website is to try and encourage Truck Drivers to stay healthy so they don’t end up like me, due to not eating properly while on the road.

      Yes encourage you brother to create a plan for his retirement and life after driving a truck. He can find me on Facebook and get in touch with me at any time. Thank you again, hope to talk soon.  Wayne

  4. Hey there Wayne,

    You are not the only one who believes that social security is running out, I think it makes the two of us. I have also been observing the way the government has been spending and boy have I been fearing about my retirement money.

    Thank you for providing such a great option for securing our financial life in the future. I am going to look at it immediately after this.

    Thanks a lot mate. 🙂

    1. Thank You Dave for stopping by my Website, your comments are greatly appreciated.

      Yes, I don’t think we can depend on our government to fix anything. We are going to have to learn to do it ourselves and Wealthy Affiliate is one of those ways to do it.

      I wrote another post on this here atruckerlifestyle.com/government if you care to read it when you get time. THX again hope to talk soon. Wayne 🙂
