Truck driving might be a better job than many people think.
You could be starting out with a $50,000 salary after about three months of training, according to Pierre Laguerre, founder of trucking platform Fleeting, a site that connects drivers to on-demand jobs.
Laguerre, 37, moved to the U.S. from Haiti as a child and credits trucking with giving him an opportunity when few other industries would.
The entrepreneur spent 12 years on the road before starting his own logistics company.
Now Laguerre wants to make it easier for others to follow in his footsteps by training underprivileged people and the formerly incarcerated to get a Commercial Driver's License.
Check out this video to learn more about Laguerre's journey to becoming an entrepreneur and his plans for the future.
