Welcome to the forum.

It will be very difficult to just start off on your own without any training/experience. If you can't afford to take a temporary drop in pay (during training), your best bet would be to save up enough money to cover your expenses for a while during your training.

The last thing you want to do is find yourself sunk in debt with a truck purchase, and no place to work due to the lack of experience. Once you have the money saved, you might consider going through training and driving a company truck for a while to build up your experience.
