Do You Miss The Lessons In Life?

Banding my head against the wall is normal for Michael The Traveling Trucker.

There are days I don’t even know my own name so to speak. People tell me things, sometimes I listen and sometimes not. Can you relate?


We have all missed the bus at some point in our lives. Been late. Been miserable in the process. The RAT RACE at it’s worst.

Being a trucker has given me insight into a number of things. Meeting people and talking to them about their life and how it could change if they are willing.

What is one thing you really, really , really want to change in your life you know needs to change? Is it how many hours you work? Lack of quality time with family and friends? Not having enough money? Need repairs around the home place?

As we start our journey, please take notes. Leave yourself sticky notes. Leave an encouraging message to yourself on your phone.

I know from my own journey in life there comes a point where all you have been doing IS NOT SATISFYING ANY LONGER. You dream of better days ahead. You tell yourself, there has to be a better way.

If you are serious about being an ENTREPRENEUR-FIND A MENTOR. I have two who speak into my life to help me gain from life’s lessons. Always point me to my end goal, even when I don’t know what the end goal is.

Kool thing is they DO. They have been down the road long before I got here.

Lesson 1– Go to my resource page at the top. Look around. See what’s of interest.

Lesson 2– Take 5 minutes right NOW- Write down what you want. This is the groundwork for everything else. This step will guide you from now on.

Lesson 3–Remember I said find a mentor? This should be someone who will guide you and push you out of your COMFORT ZONE. Show them what you have written down. It’s called accountability.

Lesson 4–Find something of interest that will make you want to do this everyday. It must be enjoyable, fun and easy to share.

When you start believing in the little things, believing everyday that they will happen, something wonderful happens. Your heart grows strong, your spirit is sensitive and your mind dreams of glorious days of sunshine and laughter.

When you look back to see all the little things, you notice some really BIG things got accomplished.

I hope you copy this post. Put it on your wall. Keep a copy in your car. Read it EVERY DAY and say-“I CAN DO THIS”.


How To Visualize Your Dream

Hello Everyone. Michael The Traveling Trucker.


Truck, Driver, Transport, Traffic

I had a dream of driving a tractor/trailer for many years. I can see how God walked me through the process.

I had a 28foot house trailer, I pulled with a pickup truck. I learned how to back up. Learning to turn the wheels in the opposite direction of where you want the trailer to go.

Then I worked for a landscape company, pulling big equipment on a 38-foot trailer. Each increase in trailer size got me closer to driving my big rig.

I saw myself behind the wheel of my big rig. I knew I had what it takes. Every tractor/trailer I saw put that burning in my mind and soul.

Then it happened, I got my chance to drive. I knew how to drive a stick shift, but I had to learn to shift 10 gears instead of 5. I have been driving for 27 years now.

This visualizing process took about 10 years to come to completion, I knew it would. This is what has driven me for years to pursue my dreams.

If you can dream it, you can do it. Always remember that this whole thing was started with a dream and a mouse. ~ Walt Disney

Typing, Computer, Desk, Hoe Office


Your life is too precious to be spent pursuing small dreams. Dream big so that you can reach your full potential. Answer this one question: “ What would you do if you took the fear out of the equation?

STOP HERE FOR A MINUTE. Really give yourself time to think about this.

You should make sure that you pursue the right dreams. You should make sure that your dreams are both fulfilling and meaningful.

Now I am being taught how to see my internet business as successful. I’m visualizing 1k per month in my bank account already. I’m seeing what I can do with that thousand dollars. ( Paying off some credit card debt.)

This is a kingdom principle. If you can’t see it, you will NEVER have it.

Can you see your DREAM? Is it a new house? How many bedrooms and bathrooms? What is the square footage? How much land is it sitting on?

Is it a new car? What is the make and model? What color is it? How many doors?

Get inspired by the stories of great people. This next point is crucial: WRITE YOUR DREAMS DOWN. Make a battle plan. Pay the price daily.

In working on your dreams, prepare yourself to meet difficulties. Expect challenges ahead. That way you won’t lose heart when difficulties come. You will be able to keep going.

Follow, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram

There might be times when you seem to get stuck. You might see no meaningful progress for a long time. In such a situation, it’s tempting to just give up your dreams.

Don’t do that EVER. “Flat” season is normal. It’s something everyone must go through. Keep dreaming. Keep moving forward. You need to think about what you can improve, of course, but keep the fire burning within you. If you do that, a new season will eventually come where things get bright again.

I believe in YOU, READER. Let me help you to dream BIG. Let me see what you see so I can inspire you to keep your dream alive.

When the time comes to go after your dream, send naysayers to TIME OUT.


What Does Your Village Look Like?

Park you vehicle behind my rig, The one that Say’s Michael The Traveling Trucker. We will walk into the village together and see what we see.


Village, Lake, Mountain, Reflection

Think about this” It takes a whole village to raise a child”. That’s the way it used to be. We see this slipping away more and more.

Food for thought- There is the village idiot, village gossip, village drunk, and the village prostitute. Are these the type of influences we really want when it comes to raising our children?

There are the village shop keepers-butcher, baker and candle stick maker. Village elders, village mayor and hopefully the village spiritual leader, who is a man of Jehovah God.

When we look closely at these people, we can learn a lot when we ask questions.

If you want to run a business, whom do you ask? If you want to know more about God, whom do you ask?

If you want to run the daily activities of a village, whom do you ask?

Panorama, Village, Landscape

NOW FOR THE FUN PART.” It’s Your Village, How Do You See It? What leaders do you converse with? Who are your advisors and mentors? How do you handle the negative side of things going on in your village? ( idiot, gossip, prostitute, drunk).

I am building my village on firm foundational principles. Listening to leaders who have already built their villages. Don’t try to change things, just because they sound good. Mentors teach you because they know you have what it takes to run your village properly and successfully.

Show up daily. Put in the work. Show your villagers, they can trust you. Work with those that want to build up your village. You must put finance into your village.

Castle, Lake, Sailboat, Roofing

Advertise your village. Show the world, why your village is worth their time and effort to join you.

What offers are you sharing with your villagers? What value do you bring to your villagers? People really love being a part of a thriving village. There is safety, financial gains, laughing, loving, sharing life.

Do you need help building your village? Being a trucker, I can load my truck with the materials you need, to build a strong, vibrant, and prosperous village.


Together, hand in hand, we will build a village that the world will stand in awe of. View my resource page for a glimpse of building materials.



Hello Everyone. This is Your money magnet driver, Michael The Traveling Trucker.


Believe that you deserve Prosperity! To create a positive mindset regarding success and wealth, it’s vital that you believe in your heart and soul that you deserve it.

Let Go of Self-Limiting Thoughts! If you have trouble identifying and letting go of this negative energy, try positive affirmations. This involves the repetition of phrases like…“I have money, success, and happiness.” or “Money is flowing freely to me.”

Focus on Exactly What You Want. The most powerful way to attract money is to focus on the exact amount that you want. If you want a raise at work, concentrate on the exact amount ($1,000) or percentages (10% more). If you want a new car, you need to focus exactly what kind of car, down to the make, model, and color.

How do you view money? Do you have a money magnet imagination? Have you thought you are worthy of wealth?

Take the time right now to visualize what you really want.

What talks do you have within your mind when you see people who change their life phenomenally in a few years and live a luxurious life?

Remember when the Universe is showing their wealth and luxury to you, the Universe wants to tell you that you can also become a Money Magnet like them.

NOW is the time for you to open yourself to the positive possibilities of life. This is the time for you to open yourself to your new abundant life. This is the time to become A Money Magnet.

Beach Hut, Beach, Vacation, Holidays

Who would you take if it was you and 3 couples? What would you do? What would you see? What food would you try, drinks to drink?

How would you accomplish all these things? It’s called RELATIONSHIP MARKETING. You must build relationships with others, remember the sharing part?

Most people love being a part of something. The interactions, talking, sharing ideas. When was the last time you invited someone for coffee?



Questions, Font, Who, What, How, Why

At the TOP of my blog, you will see a resource page. Take a look at my recommendations, then get back with me. I would love the opportunity to share life with you.

Tell me the one thing HOLDING YOU back? Time, money, no experience?

I have been there on all three. I’m a 61-year-old trucker. Been driving all across the USA for 27 years. I wanted to have a laptop lifestyle. I didn’t have a clue where to start. I just did the hit and miss thing at first.

Feedback, Confirming, Businessmen, Group

I heard, sling enough mud at the wall and some will stick. I saw some people on the internet, who were operating their own businesses. I watched, learned(quietly), then said to myself,” I WANT WHAT THEY HAVE DONE. IF THEY CAN DO IT THERE IS HOPE FOR ME”.

I found a good fit-(Look to resource page). I began my journey almost 1 year ago. I love writing my blog. Learning how to build lead capture and thank you pages. I’m am not afraid of the phone (calling prospects). I am having small amounts of SUCCESS, which will lead to MASSIVE SUCCESS.

I want you to look at the resource page, NOW. Go ahead I’ll wait. Glad you made it back. HOW CAN I SERVE YOU TODAY? This is my sharing with YOU. I hope you get encouraged to take the 1st step and never look back. Ask questions, we have the answers. We are a FAMILY here. COME BE A PART.

You already know how to show up for work daily, right? Show up here and learn from some of the best marketers. They will help you to money in your pocket.

I know from experience, they have done it with me, by showing me the WAY.




Confused, Hands, Up, Unsure, Perplexed

On the black sea highway, I find myself wondering HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE? Have You felt that way?

I’m your trucking host with the most, Michael the Traveling Trucker.

We hear” ARE WE THERE YET?” Most of the time the answer is NO, and we become impatient, dissatisfied, and rebellious, for it takes too long for things to happen.

I set up a new lead capture page, sent it out, and got immediate results. The contact was made and we had a good conversation. My prospect came to the Telegraph room and RobG took over. Through his leadership, an upgrade was made.

He shared with me, my prospect has been a part of the business since 2010 but had not logged in since 2015. How’s that for the long term? A 5-year HIATUS.

Keys, Open Locks, Security, Unlock

As ENTREPRENEURS, we never know which key will unlock the door for people to walk through, coming into our business world.

I heard Jon Olson say, He bought some crypto and forgot about it for years. Then he talked with a friend and was told the crypto he had was huge.

Strive to do your best each day. People you talk to might not be ready today, so you move on. They stay silent in the background, always watching. Then time goes by. When the time is right and they contact you, saying they are ready.

Most of the people aren’t ready, just looking they say. NEVER COUNT ANYONE OUT. Timing is everything, so be prepared to wait. Work with those that want what you have.

Man, Happy, Confused, In Love, People

Why waiting is beneficial and has beneficial factors. Priorities become clear. It produces Productive habits.

Tolerance and empathy helps people to wait and is a great humbler. A humble person is aware of the struggles of others and can empathize with their troubles. In short, waiting can make you a better person.

Labyrinth, Confusion, Confused, Way

Once you bend your head around the fact that waiting is your friend, and not your enemy, some important things will shift in your head.

Instead of being frustrated by delays, you can be grateful for them, make the most of each one and soar through your time of waiting.

On the other side of it, you will see how much has been grown in your character even though it felt like nothing was happening at the time. Now that is something to be grateful for.

Waiting Is A Good Thing


Please watch this video, it’s my fun time on Camera.

What a way to start the day. Over 5 million dollars. This is the value of a painting sold at auction for “Portrait of Juan De Pareja”. The value of art is determined by the QUALITY of the work, by who the ARTIST is, and by what the ART says.

This is a great day for another life changing adventure with Michael The Traveling Trucker.


Rustic, Ancient, Map, Globe

You were created as a MASTER PIECE by the greatest and most loving artist of all, GOD.

You are more valuable than any painting or machine that man has made.

I pray you just “BELIEVE”. If you don’t , let me believe for you, hold your hand, show you a small glimpse of what God has given you. This is a story of a Father who loves you so much.

A lot of people don’t believe, and that’s ok. You choose today, LIFE or DEATH?

Most will choose LIFE, so that tells me you really want something more and YOU have every right to have it.

So where do you start, where else but at the beginning. You determine where the story begins and ends, for it is YOUR adventure.

You are not just a FACE in the CROWD. You have a loving purpose, so show your best side. It’s also ok to show your bad side because we all have a good and bad side. That makes you real and human.

What do you want to do today in your life story? Are you writing your life book? Composing your life song? Dancing your life dance? Painting your life portrait?

Welcome all my CB talking, business gear jamming, network relocators. This is Michael The Traveling Trucker.

Yesterday is GONE, TOMORROW is not promised. That leaves TODAY. As our minds explore the possibilities of our future, do we pursue the unknown with fear or rise up in FAITH?


Being a trucker, I am quite familiar with the unknown. I get dispatched to places I have never been to before. Yes, I have my trucker GPS and yes it gets me to where I need to go, most of the time.

I have had a road closed and have had to find another way around, and the GPS is not helpful. It wants to put me on a car route. Does fear rise up or faith rise up?


Most outside people will never understand what you are trying to do. Their opinions and attitudes will NEVER define who YOU ARE. Choose today, to quit listening to the TOXIC people.

In your mind’s eye, WHAT DOES YOUR FUTURE LOOK LIKE? Do you hold the world in your hands? Do you look at the problems or look for the answers?

What books are you reading? Who are you listening to, so your business will GROW? What do you flood your mind with on a daily basis?

It’s time to rise up. Tell your SPIRIT, Today Is My Day. I will not look back, back up, or give in. The business highway is before me. It’s time for a mind-blowing road trip. Buckle up, switch gears, and burn rubber.

Michael’s favorite saying,” You have two choices when you wake up in the morning, be happy or sad. There are enough sad people in the world without me being one.



What a ride this has been. Greetings and salutations from Michael The Traveling Trucker.


Impossible, Possible, Attitude, Positive

Looking back is always perfect vision. It’s easy to look at where we have been and realize what choices we should have made or paths we should have taken.

It’s easy to miss the lessons of life that God is teaching us through constant challenges. Within the context of those challenges, we find valuable life lessons that must be learned.

So do you show up daily? Do you do your best for this day? Today is all you have, so let us DREAM BIG, TAKE ACTION and FOLLOW UP and FOLLOW THROUGH.

Clouds, Cliff, Jump, High, Rock, Boy

What is your biggest challenge? Mine is connecting to people. Being a driver, I have drive days that keep me driving all day and part of the night. I don’t get the opportunities as often as I like for my phone calls, texts and emails. I will do my best today. I will show up. I will make those calls.

Building a business is really a 2-5 year plan. You will have high’s and low’s. I see through observation of my leaders, they are consistent in all they do.

Here is a great interview with Rob Gehring, Hosted by Lisa M Gentile. Rob describes his daily routine. Click here to watch the video.

Describe your daily habits. What do you start with, and where do you end your day?

I start with my blog, Phone calls are next, with texts and emails second. I jump on the advertising wagon, shooting those arrows. I read and comment on different post, upvoting at every opportunity.

Green Men, Art, Artwork

As we build our following, remember it’s all about PEOPLE. Be kind, lead with passion, love with a grateful spirit. Be willing to give your ALL. The reason I’m here is my mentors have shown such love, passion, and commitment to me. For that, I’m eternally grateful.


Quote, Inspirational, Positive, Text

I will be all God has called me to be. I will continue to learn, make mistakes and sometimes fail. I will have GREAT SUCCESS at the end of the day.


How To Get The Right People To Open Your Email


Email Us, Email, Us, Web, Internet

Welcome Saturday Truckerettes, This Is Your Host, Michael The Traveling Trucker.

I’ve been studying lately how to get the right people to open my emails. I have to say some of the info was eye opening and thought provoking.

Let me ask this question, What is your open rate? When you track and split test, what are your results?

The average email open rate is 21.33 percent. Keeping track of your results is vital. This shows what works and what doesn’t. If you don’t belong to Hits Connect, click here. This is a great site for tracking your results.

To get people to open your email, start with a benefit: People feel good when they know they will benefit from you, It will give people the incentive to open your email. Say something like: How to triple your social media following.

Email, Newsletter, Marketing, Online

When you create CURIOSITY, people are really tempted to open your email. Write something like: What Does reading have to do with success or what to do if some falls down?

USE NUMBERS: Users understand what’s in store for them when they click an article. It’s about clarity, helping them to manage their expectations. Example, Why 90% of marketers are doing it wrong?

Borrow Credibility: People love to know what well-known people think, give advice, or talk about how to solve a problem.


The #1 Free Headline Analyzer

Write Headlines That Drive Traffic, Shares, And Search Results

Here are some things to meditate on:

Test Different Email Subjects, Testing Different Times and Days Of Send, Testing Different Email Frequencies, Testing Different Sender Emails, Testing Different Email First Lines.

Tease the value and benefits of opening and reading the rest of the email. Make them fearful of missing out, make it impossible for them to resist the urge to delve a little further.

In closing, Will you share your secret email headlines with me? What your open rates are? I can always use all the help I can get. Leave me a comment now. I will respond back, to thank you.
