This month I am taking a look back at the first 2 years of Trucking Answers. Since it is Monday, I want to talk about the Live Show that I do every Monday at 1pm Eastern. The show now runs about 2.5 hours. I end it there because I have to go to work! The first time I went live was about 18 months ago when Trucking Answers was only 6 months old. I just hit the "Live" button and off I went. Very nervous which I still am every Monday even though I have done dozens of live shows and a couple of live remotes. I never know how the show will go or if anyone will show up. That first show actually had a few people on it! I couldn't believe it. I did a few more shows at random times and then I got contacted by Jay from Auto Transport Intel. You should watch his videos HERE. Anyway, he asked me to be a guest on his live show which he was doing (and still is) every Tuesday at 8pm Central. I agreed and had to pull over because I normally drive evenings and nights. It was great and I told him I do a show but hardly anyone comes. He said to do the show at the same time every week and keep doing the show. Make it a regular thing. I did and here we are still doing the show. I had to switch stuff at work, I do less hours than I was so I could continue the show and the YouTube work. YouTube is closing in on 30 hours a week, every week.
I am still very humbled by the live show. There are many regular people that take their time out every Monday to be on the show and participate in the chat. We discuss current trucking events and help drivers who have questions. Now, trucking companies are in the chat as well as product sponsors. GP Transco is a regular in the chat and BlueParrott has sent many headsets to giveaway to drivers here.
I hope to see you in the next live show. Remember, no drama allowed! Let's keep the chat to trucking.
See you on the road!
