Jarrett Joyce, relative newcomer to the "uShipping" community, has a net worth of $100 thousand. At least part of his net worth has been earned through his new gig, which is bidding on contracts to ship unusual items to and from various parts of the country, the types of items that traditional shipping companies won't touch. How unusual? Here's a brief list of some of the items Joyce has had to ship since he started in this business: "A box of 40 kittens, a hot dog stand, someone's ashes and most recently, a Civil War cannon." But shipping boxes of kittens is far from being Jarrett's only passion. He is also an aspiring PGA golfer, and he tries to plan his shipping schedules and routes around PGA qualifying tournaments whenever possible. This is undoubtedly part of the appeal of the shipping business for Jarrett – where else can you get paid to travel to PGA qualifying events? The adventures of Jarrett and his fellow shippers/competitors will be seen on the upcoming A&E reality TV series Shipping Wars, which shows various independent shippers like Jarrett bidding on those unusual shipping contracts. And unless Joyce makes it into the PGA Tour any time soon, he's probably going to have to stick to shipping.
