Janet Parsons used to be a programmer and Assistant VP at a BB&T bank in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Today, she runs her own trucking business, DJP Trucking.
When Parsons left the bank to start her company, she had just one truck and her husband was the company mechanic. Since then, her business has grown to multiple vehicles and brokers jobs for over 65 truckers!
Whether it is managing a fleet or driving a big rig, the trucking industry is often perfect for those seeking new opportunities and challenges.
