Being a trucker is not for everyone. These hardworking individuals are responsible for transporting everything from food and medicine to construction materials and consumer goods.

This is why Texas native and CEO of TruckGod CDL Training School, Corey Clemons, provides people with the skills and knowledge they need to pursue a career in trucking. He’s passionate about ensuring that everyone has access to quality training to succeed in this growing industry.

As long as there are goods to be transported and customers who need them, Corey Clemons will remain an essential part of the building careers. Through his hard work and commitment, he has not only made a name for himself within the transportation industry; he has also helped countless people achieve their goals of building successful trucking careers. In an interview, he discusses how he came into the trucking industry and the journey to his success.

Thank you for taking the time out to speak with me. Tell the readers and me a little about yourself.

I came from a tight knit-family and grew up an “army brat” traveling abroad. I was adventurous and always made new friends. I had big dreams as a kid, and to actually be living my dream and becoming TruckGod Famous is amazing on so many levels.

What made you want to go into the trucking industry?

When I was seven years old, I had a flat on my bicycle, and a truck driver saw me pushing my little bike along the road and actually pulled up to help me air my tire up and, on top of that, let me sit in his truck and blow the horn! That was the coolest thing ever to me, and at that moment, I knew I wanted to be a TruckGod!

You spent a lot of time educating yourself in this industry. Did you have anyone to look up to as you went along this journey?

I was influenced by self-trial and error and a great deal of prayer. I trusted people to be transparent, not realizing that if it’s not benefiting them, they don’t have your best interest at heart. I provide opportunities to people that I never had, with no pressure, any gimmicks, just vital information that can be used so they can make an educated decision. Now, what they do with that information is all up to them. I not only apply that to business but to life as a whole.

What learning curves did you overcome to get to where you are now?

The learning curve that was one of the hardest to overcome was being too generous, thinking that everyone was a friend or had good intentions like I had for them in sharing the wealth of knowledge and opportunities; when you are too kind, people take advantage and start feeling entitled. I learned to stop living in the moment and live for the future to be able to put myself in a position to leave a legacy for my children.

What is it like to be ranked in the Top 3 on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration Entry-Level Driver Training list?

Financially, great! {laughing} The IRS will be knocking on the door pretty soon, but all jokes aside, it is a BLESSING and rewarding to know that prayers, hard work, dedication, and giving back expecting nothing in return have worked in my favor. For that, I am grateful.

What advice would you offer to those wanting to go into the trucking industry?

Do your own research and then research some more no matter how many rabbit holes you go down; be prepared to be lied to with all the money circulating in the industry. Hence, doing your own research in this industry is so important from learning/knowing the laws and knowing any and everything there is to know about trucks and the trucking industry so people can’t get over on you.
