I have had the pleasure of meeting some truly good people on Twitter. I work a 12 hour night shift and I've had some good conversations with several tweeple with insomina. That's how I met BigCatTrucker.
I immediately found BigCatTrucker intreging because he's an go-getter type of guy and in these times, it's easy to let your dreams and goals fall behind. And this young man finds his way through with determination and keeping a positive outlook on life. I found BCT to be funny over twitter and then he hit me with his youtube videos.
I followed his tweets and videos and within a few days BigCatTrucker announced he was coming out with a show too. Let's see what the BigCat comedian has to say in the interview.
Carmen: BigCat, I know where to find you, but tell everyone where we find you on the internet?
BCT: I have a few sites I work with: http://youtube.com/
Me: A lot of people are turning to the internet to launch business and shows, how did you get started?
BCT: I'm just a big internet junky, I do all of my business online.
Me: When we tune into the BigCatTrucker Show what should we expect? What does the show offer?
BCT: Just getting your laugh on and I offer some helpful info as well. Basically it's just all about The BigCat
Is this full-time for you or do you have another career?
BCT: Yes and no, I'm starting a new career as a truck driver but I want to take it to the next level and be a "world famous" trucker who is well known online. I am starting my own show on youtube called "The BigCatTrucker Show" I just wanted to do a show so everyone can see how a newbie trucker starts out and hopefully break down the stereotypes about truckers and the truck driving industry.
Carmen: People are still a little scared about launching their endevours online. I've done it and you're doing it too. Can anybody really do this?
BCT: Yes!! Everything nowsdays is on the internet and it is getting more and more advanced everyday. Also, while this medium advances there are new user friendly sites out there that can help you build a site custom made for you!
Carmen: Who inspired you to get started with your business?
BCT: I have a good friend of mine in Houston, TX who I have known for about 12 years now who is a trucker still today and he would always talk to me about getting my CDL and making some real money. So it took me this long to think about it and the way the economy is today made me want to doing more and more.
Carmen: Being successful on the internet is all about networking. Tell me how you get the word out about The BigCat.
BCT: Like I said before I use websites like myspace and facebook just because there are so many people on them and its fast and to the point. I also use twitter.com, youtube.com and qik.com I do a lot of videos and these sites are a bigtime help for me. I think they all provide results!
Carmen: What advice do you have for others who might want to do what you do?
BCT: Well since I'm just starting my career as a trucker, I can't really say much about that. However, I have learned in life if there is something you want to do just work hard towards it and don't stop just keep on going and going until you get there. A lot of people might try to tell you your dreams are too big or unattainable, but keep at it and it will come to pass. It might not happen overnight but hard work always equals success.
Carmen: Before I stop with the 20/20 is there anything else you would like us to know about you and your business?
BCT: That I'm the next big thing that’s about to blowup the internet, so look out for BigCatTrucker and my new show and much more to come.
