Life on the road....
Written by Casey Hall 8/9/21
 When you work a job that keeps you on the road for weeks or months at a time, it can be frustrating to be away from the people you love. You are working hard to give them a better life, and making an investment in a better future. You want to know that all the time you have sacrificed away from them is worth it. Sometimes you question if it is. You have missed birthdays, anniversaries, and graduations. There have been late night and early morning phone calls, not all of them happy. What matters most to you is your family. You never want them to worry about what may happen on the road, or if something happens that takes you away from them. The thought of them worrying about you not coming home from your latest trip keeps you up at night.

You barely know anyone on your concrete or welding job and find it hard to trust the people you work with. Some people may see you as cold, but you aren’t. What you are is hard-working, driven, and willing to work yourself to death for the people that mean the most to you. Those are the people who know the real you. You are used to meals out of lunch boxes, takeout boxes, and drive-thru bags. You spend your days on the road and nights in cheap, awful hotels or in an RV park in a small town that is in the middle of nowhere. It’s not the life you envisioned you would have, but it has made you good money and allowed you to support your family. That is something you are incredibly proud of. You worry about your family because they are everything to you.

You are also proud that you have always been able to figure out any problem you face. It may take a little time, but with some trial and error, you are the person who people can always count on to fix any problem. One of the problems you can’t always solve when you are out on the road is reassuring your family that no matter what, you will make sure they are ok. Fortunately, it is possible to give the people who you love the most the peace of mind that you will always take care of them, even when you can’t be right there with them. A lot of companies don’t offer the kind of investment or health coverage that families need today, but there are some great options out there, like Callused Hands Insurance Group.

When you work long hours in construction or welding, sometimes 10-16 hours a day and 6-7 days a week, you want to know that the people you love are protected. You want to make sure they will never have to worry about if someone gets sick or injured. What retirement will look like in the future shouldn't be something they stress over. It is easy to focus on today and not think about what comes next tomorrow. With some planning and people in your corner that can help you along the way, you can sleep better every night, even when on the road. You will know you are taking the steps you need to build a secure financial future for you and your family, and protecting their health.
