This is a "lifestyle" business because of your ability to create diverse sources of revenue and almost passive earning potential. You are NOT going to learn how to become a box truck or tractor trailer operator. To the contrary, you are going to discover how to build, grow and scale your own network comprised of 1099 contractors who either own or rent their own box trucks, enclosed trailers, trucks, vans, and equipment.
As the "broker," you cultivate the business, collect the money, and assign work orders to contractors. Your contractors carry all liabilities and expenses as they are responsible for the cost of maintaining their own vehicles, equipment, fuel and insurance.
Because you are always paid first, you maintain complete control of all schedules, work orders, and commissions.
No, absolutely now. We are definitely not a freight broker and we do not teach our Licensees to become freight brokers. Although some of our independent contractors are involved in hauling freight and maintain their own operating authority, it is counterintuitive and not necessary for us or our Licensees to maintain Motor Carrier or DOT operating authority. This is a completely different business model - one in which the need for operating authority and/or complying with various rules and regulations as dictated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) simply is not necessary.
With 1099 contractors, you pay straight commission while your contractors carry all responsibilities and liabilities. This allows you focus exclusively on building your network and growing your net worth versus being distracted or discouraged by overhead expenses.
We focus on large item(s) deliveries or "loads" that are frequently boxed, wrapped, or palletized as compared to small package or last-mile deliveries that offer negligible earning potential. Deliveries can be business-to-business or business-to-customer and can include furniture, appliances, palletized products, or more.
Yes, of course you can. By choice, we do not offer small package or last-mile delivery because the ROI is, in our determination, limited. However, in your business, you have complete discretion and the infrastructure exists for you to invest in such opportunities.
We coined the phrase “Express Moves” which caters to smaller 2-5 hour local move jobs that traditional moving services with large box trucks, tractor trailers and team of 4-8 movers simply are not interested in servicing due of the limited size. Needless to say, this leaves incredible earning potential for those of us eager to take advantage.
There are a host of sources ranging from loading and unloading storage containers, storage malls, cleanouts and haul-offs, assembly work, and much more.
No, not at all. Because we are not engaging in passenger transportation, scheduling remains immeasurably more flexible with negligible exposure to potential liabilities.
First and foremost, our training material is going to teach you the tactics and strategies of this business model
Second, as an active licensee, you will receive one full year of one-on-one coaching with a Regional Director (RD) who will mentor and further assist you in learning the intricate details associated with this business model.
Third, you will have full access to our propriety software platform and associated apps which are critical for managing all of your contractors, work orders, revenue, cash flow, expenditures, and more.
The investment for becoming an active Licensee is $20,000 which includes all training material, one year of coaching with a RD, and the initial annual subscription to our software ($6,000 per year).
If you prefer to "start slow," learning particulars of the business before becoming an active licensee, you can invest in the “training-material-only” option for $5,000 which does not include one year of coaching and mentorship from an RD or access to our software and associated mobile apps. When you are ready to move forward and gain access to a year of one-on-one coaching and our software, you can invest the remaining $15,000 to become an active licensee.
That is a great but very much “loaded” question! There are MANY variables associated with your earning potential to include which types and sources of revenue you pursue – deliveries, express moves, labor-only, and others.
How aggressively do you pursue, solicit, and work to cultivate relationships with area businesses, retailers, customers, facilities, professional office building, apartment complexes, university and college campuses and so much more?
How many contractors do you deploy to meet demand and what is their rate of commission?
Again, there is a host of variables associated with determining your ROI, but statistically, you should anticipate profit margins that range between 25-35% with the vast majority of your expenditures being comprised of contractor commission.
Yes, your business should be structured so you and your contractors generate revenue from each work order. We always recommend paying your contractors a healthy commission, which we will discuss in greater detail in our training material, so they remain enthusiastic and committed to serving your network. The more money your contractors make the greater your contractor retention.
We will share multiple strategies in our training material, but in looking long-term, you will find that many contractors will come from friends and family of existing contractors. Success breeds success and when you have contractors making great money, others will want to join – which makes recruiting and retaining contractors much easier.
Quickly! Because the core foundation of this business model is predicated on deploying 1099 contractors, you do not need to invest time, money, or effort in acquiring assets, securing costly insurance premiums or managing maintenance programs as you would with a traditional delivery-logistics business.
Because you will be outsourcing work to contractors who either own or lease their own equipment, your “speed of implementation” is limited to your own efforts and motivation for cultivating business while building a successful team of reliable contractors.
Be assured, like any successful business, YouAreTheBroker.com is not a get-rich-quick-scheme or a set-it-and-forget-it “system." All successful businesses require proper training, astute strategic planning, and effective execution.
The YouAreTheBroker.com business model is time-tested and proven business model. We encourage you to follow all described tactics, strategies, and ideas in detail and, when combined with your motivated effort, your success will be imminent!
Our support includes a full year of one-on-one coaching with an RD when you become an active licensee along with any possible continued tech support associated with our software platform.
After receiving your information, members of our legal team will forward to you a formal application and questionnaire. Depending on how quickly you return this information with associated documentation, the approval process should not be long.
Active Licensees can operate their business anywhere. However, License Agreements are issued according to zip code. No two Licensees will be granted a License Agreement for the same zip code.
Yes, Licensees wishing to secure the rights to other key zip codes need only invest in the annual licensing fee for that zip code versus investing in additional cost associated with the initial Enrollment Investment.
Absolutely not. There are no long-term contracts or hidden fees. The Enrollment Investment covers all initial fees for the first year. Reoccurring annual fees are due by the anniversary date of your Agreement. There are NO hidden fees, commissions, or per-transaction debits.
You can cancel your Agreement whenever you like. Again, there are no long-term contracts or obligations and we reserve no rights to your business. However, we do not offer refunds, full or partial, on paid annual subscriptions.
You will assign all of your contractors unique username and passwords giving them unlimited access to their own web portal to manager their entire business. The mobile contractor app gives them express access and convenience to managing their work orders.
