How to Become a Profitable Freelance Parcel Courier/Owner-Driver
Following 20 years in retail management I decided to pursue a completely different course, by buying a van and setting myself up as a freelance courier/owner-driver. After 6 months, I could not understand why I had not done it sooner. Gone were the 14-hour days, where I only got paid for 8 of them. Gone were the bosses, with their unrealistic expectations and gone were the needy staff!
I had always enjoyed driving and now I was getting paid more than I had at any time during during my entire retail career to do what I enjoyed, with virtually none of the hassle and I also had the satisfaction of knowing that when I worked longer hours, I was earning more money.
