Haulin Assets

#84. July 2021 Financials

August 25, 2021

Ahhhh, the ups and downs of trucking. We went from a record profit last month to a loss this month. The situation is not as dire as it might sound. There were some one-time expenses that created the loss. Craig and I will explain it all.

What To Expect From Episode 84

Craig and I start off this episode by talking about a YouTube video I recently watched of a commencement address Admiral McRaven, a Navy Seal, gave. It's a 16 minute speech where he talks about 10 lessons for changing the world. While you may not have ambitions to change the world, these lessons will help you in your life and in your business. If you follow even a couple of them, you might just do more good than you think. We discuss a couple of Admiral McRaven's lessons:

  1. Respect everyone
  2. Life is not fair, keep moving forward

I highly recommend you watch his address. You can find it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TBuIGBCF9jc&t=13s 

Here are the numbers for the month.

  • Total miles ran – 33,293
  • Deadhead miles – 1,960 (5.9%)
  • Total revenue - $82,041 (Three trucks running, forth one hit the road the last couple days of the month.)
  • All-in rate-per-mile - $2.46 (Great Rate Per Mile)

Haulin Assets realized a loss of $3,933.94.

In the episode, we cover the reasons we had a loss. The biggest two are: first, we added a new truck and there were costs getting it on the road and second, we replaced the turbo on truck #1.

Impact Tip

Don’t spend it all in one place. I think I am going to try to figure out how many different ways I can say the same thing so saving money will probably be a reoccurring theme in the impact tip section of the podcast. If you had a great month, don't waste the profits on something you'll regret.
