Interview @ Raul Mendez
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
Trucks have always just been a passion of mine. They look so majestic and beautiful that when I got the opportunity to work so up-close and personal with them, I just couldn’t let go of this chance of a life time. And then the production of the show came along and I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited about something in my life. It was my chance to finally bring my love for trucks to the population of America.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
Don’t give up and keep pushing through. Keep going forward and I swear nothing and no one will be able to stop you from achieving your dreams.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
My family is my lifeblood. I love them and everything I do, I do it with the hopes that it will benefit them. I don’t think I would have been able to reach this far ahead in my career without their constant love and support. Especially that of my wife.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
By sharing my love for trucks to the world. The show, “Texas Trocas” has definitely helped me and the team I am so grateful for in achieving that goal.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“There is no failure except when you stop trying.” I don’t think I would have been able to reach where I have in my career if I had just given up without pouring in all my blood, sweat and tears into all my projects.
