Increasing Truckers Income:
Some money making opportunities allow folks to earn what is called leveraged income.
This means that you're earning money from the efforts of others whom you have helped become successful, with payment on the basis of referral fees, network marketing, brokerage, etc.
Flatbed drivers who use a "buck bar" to cinch down the straps on their loads are very familiar with the concept of leverage.

Not all leveraged income opportunities -- sometimes referred to as multi-level marketing businesses (or MLMs) -- are suitable for professional truck drivers. Because your truckers income, reputation and future depends on it, examine all aspects of a future business before you invest a single cent in a leveraged income opportunity.
A Closer Look
Since trucking is one of the top 10 most deadly occupations in America, one thing that was particularly important to us when we were looking at expanding our business with a leveraged income opportunity was the ability to "will" that part of our business to our heirs or legal representatives upon our death or incapacitation.
Another important factor was not being required to reach a sales quota from others each month.
We also needed a business that matched our personal philosophy and is "trucker friendly."
Think about the possibilities of a leveraged income opportunity as part of your truckers income.
What if you had a network marketing opportunity that you believed in, that would pay you to refer to the company through five degrees of separation?What if you referred just one, two or three other people who did the same, down to five levels? What kind of network of wellness, purpose and abundance could you build?
In such a scenario, you wouldn't be dependent just on your own efforts at making money -- and there would be no caps on your truckers income as you currently have in trucking.
Money saving tip: The wrong choices could end up costing you a lot of money. Just because your best friend is making money at something doesn't mean that you will. Every person has his or her own path to forge.
What if you spend years building a business selling someone else's product and then you become incapacitated? Will your residual income continue or cease?
If you are required to make purchases in order to earn commissions or bonuses from a leveraged income opportunity, look to see if you receive something in return. If you receive something, find out if it is appropriate legally and size-wise to take it on the road with you.
Is the product or service something that can be used in every type of economy or only when folks have money to burn?
Does the product or service replace something that you're already using so that you don't feel that what you're buying is an "additional" cost?
Thoroughly read through each and every "distributor agreement" or legal contract that you intend to sign to make sure you know what you're committing yourself to.
Some people consider that the best network marketing opportunities stem from selling consumable products. Do your own personal substantiation test before attempting to sell these products to others.
Based on our experience with the products, we encourage both truckers and truckers' wives to investigate the leveraged business opportunity associated with Young Living Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils.
