Whether you eventually want to be a freight broker, or continue on as a one man trucking operation, what you need is customers. People who want you to haul their freight, or arrange to have it hauled. If you have customers now and can’t service them with your own truck, perhaps you should concentrate on being strictly a freight broker. Sell your truck and trailer and set up a proper freight brokerage operation. If at a later date, you feel that you have the volume of business and mix of lanes to start up a trucking company again, go for it. Or most likely by that time, you will be more than happy to avoid the hassle and expense.
