Freight Broker and Freight Broker Agents are making good money working from home. Like all businesses you have to put in a lot of work to make the big bucks. I found this great video explaining the step-by-step process to moving a load as an Freight Broker Broker(brokers take on great responsibilities) or Agent.(agents have less risk)
A freight broker may make $500 profit and an agent will make 60% of the profit of the deal. This happens over and over. The more deals you have the more money you make.Remember it will take 6 to 2 years to build any business to the point it can sustain you.
You must build your credit score up to show you are reliable to work with when making connections and proving you are worthy of business. You will also check credit of the entity that will pay you.
You should have money or an income that can sustain you while you are pursuing this or any business, or you will not be able to function and learn to your best ability.
