Dazna LogisticsOur partner of the month for  October is Dazna Logistics!. We caught up with Tina to chat with her about how she got started with the company and what keeps her trucking.

When did you get started?

John and I started the business about 4 years ago and we are the owners and operators.

What do you enjoy most about what you do for a living?

We really enjoy working for ourselves. It can be very challenging but also very rewarding and enjoyable to own our own business.

What is most challenging about what you do for a living?

Expenses that come along with the business and timelines. Also, when prices go down, the expenses don’t and that can sometimes be difficult to manage.

What advice would you give to someone just starting out in this business?

Go slow, take your time, and be smart in who you’re working with. Do your research before jumping in.

How do you keep a work-life balance?

There’s always more work than there is life, but taking a couple days off now and then is a good start. It’s very important to take time to refresh.

Anything you’d like to add?

We started blind in the business. We signed up with Pay4freight in the first month of starting and they have been so helpful; we really learned a lot from them.

They’ve been more like a business partner than a factoring company and have kept us going through some tough times. Wendy started with us and she really took care of us.
