Kim Wages was born and raised in Queens, New York. He grew up in an area he describes as rough-and-tumble, but one that he chose not to become a product of. His father was imprisoned at a young age and left an impression on the young Kim that would stay with him throughout his life.
Kim, known in the neighbourhood as “Kim Kim,” would grow and soon leave New York City behind. He relocated to Atlanta, GA, where he began his career in the workforce after years of trying to figure things out. Kim began his career as a driver for the Landstar system and eventually grew his fleet of trucks through this program. After developing “driver onboarding” (a white-label service) for new upstarts, Kim became one of the go-to guys among fleet owners.
Kim Wages provides trucking company owners with a wealth of information about the industry. Over the last three years, thousands of trucking company authorities have gone active on the site monthly. Kim spotted this problem and implemented an “onboarding process” for trucking companies, which has helped over 180 companies set an industry standard for excellence.
Interaction with TN’H:
In an interview with Truck N’ Hustle, Kim Wages shared how he overcame a rough environment, and helped him develop a career in the trucking industry. He described how he started his business and how important it is for someone to take the initiative and start a business in the industry.
Kim knows how difficult it can be to start a business in the trucking industry, and that is why he has been educating others on how to create their own company. His hard work has proven successful thus far. Kim also talks about driver onboarding as a white-label service for new upstarts. This service includes meeting your company driver on location and taking them through an abbreviated onboard process.
Kim’s insights are invaluable to anyone looking for an entrepreneurial spirit. He freely offered advice on how best to practice his own success and talked extensively about what not-to-do when starting a business similar to himself.
The interview with Kim shows he is a truly dedicated entrepreneur who has been through much while building up a successful company over time; this makes him a wise person! What we loved most, though, were all sorts of little details which showed just how inaccessible these ‘insights’ could be without real-world experience behind them.
In the end, Kim’s speech hit home with a very motivational message— “Don’t allow things to take your attention away from what you are or who you can be.”
