3 HIGHLY Successful TRUCKING ENTREPRENEURS talk LIFE AFTER Prison! – FreightFest

Success becomes significant when it inspires the doubtful. The success stories of these three incredible men, who spent years in prison, are the dose of motivation you need. Of course, there will be bad days, but giving up must never be an option.


Ed Hennings is a successful trucking business owner today. But before tasting it, he had to go through the grind in prison for 20 long years. While there, he worked on himself, and his perceptions changed. As Ed said, when the inside of him changed, life improved, and he became an optimistic individual.


And next came Trent Griffin-Braaf, who experienced his prison time for the first time when he was a 19-year-old. He spoke about the networks and relationships that helped him climb the ladder. As a forever learner, he never stops seeking new opportunities. His urge to improve saw him move from a houseman in a hotel to the front desk and eventually became the General Manager.


Finally, when Coach Sheldon turned up, he enhanced the overall session with valuable lessons. His talk on the mind shift is so powerful. All you need is that transition from doing the dumb stuff to doing the legit stuff.


Five key takeaways from this session:


  1. The power of belief
  2. The importance of building networks and relationships
  3. The magic of mind shift
  4. Real stories that matter
  5. It is never too late to get started and achieve


Final Word


Mind you. These are people who had their spells in prison. And if you are having a bad day, don’t worry. It is never going to be the same. Just keep going.


Check out the session and listen to people who have been there and done that.
