HOW RIDESHARE DRIVING HELPED ME AS AN ENTREPRENEUR
At the end of 2012, I decided to quit my 9-5 job as a graphic + website designer to start my own freelance business. I started my own business because I wanted to be my own boss, I wanted to have a flexible schedule, and I wanted to just have some more freedom in my life in general.
Six months after I started my own business, I found myself in a tight spot financially and was really kind of struggling to make ends meet, so I decided to seek out a side job that could help me pay my bills.
I began driving part-time for Lyft in July of 2013 and found it to be an extremely easy way to make some extra cash whenever I needed it. In December of 2014, I decided to sign up for Uber so that I could really optimize my time on the road and have that extra stream of income available to me while I was already out and about.
Signing up for both companies was what really catapulted my earnings and is why I want to share my experience with anyone else who may be seeking a side hustle (or even a full-time job!)
Rideshare driving has seriously made such an impact on my life, especially as a new entrepreneur who was still getting her bearings straight in the financial department. It brought me a sense of stability through a weekly paycheck (what person doesn't love knowing when they'll be paid!) and I really loved that I had the freedom to choose my own hours and work as little or as much as I needed every week.
In fact, here's blog post I wrote about Why Uber + Lyft are the Perfect Side Hustles for Entrepreneurs.
I honestly don't think I would have gotten where I am today without Uber and Lyft and so I really want to spread the word to anyone else out there who might be looking for a flexible job that can help you pay your bills, pay off student loans, or even help you save up for a vacation!
Driving can be fun! Why not give it a try? 🙂
