Welcome fellow entrepreneurs or side Hustlers. So if you're picking up this book you're probably interested in either becoming a Lyft or Uber driver or you already are and you're looking for some helpful tips. Well, I hope I can help you out.
Part-time jobs, side jobs, side hustles, etc. are no stranger to my past, and as for Lyft and Uber, I have to highly recommend them if you're looking for something that gives you quick cash and takes very little effort. Not to mention, you can multitask while driving Lyft or Uber. Let me say for a second, I don't mean literally while you're driving people around, you're out doing other things, but I mean when you're waiting for a fare to come down or another call on your app you can be studying. You can bring a laptop or something, surf the internet, play games, or so many things you could do while you're online with Lyft or Uber so it doesn’t just have to be sitting around in your car waiting for people to pay you money.
As they say, proof is in the pudding, right? Well I am actually writing this e-book right now while I'm on my Lyft and Uber apps. I am using Google dictation on Google Docs and I have my laptop just sitting next to me and my passenger seat and I am talking this out while I wait for my next fare. Another great thing that you may or may not know about Lyft or Uber is that you don't work for them. You are a 1099 contractor, so they don't handle your taxes or set your hours. If you're not their employee, you don’t have to wait for them to send you a paycheck every month, but you get paid immediately.
With current technology, you're able to complete a fare and automatically get paid. You basically have the money right away with no delay like JoyRun where you going must wait for hours to get paid or some other food delivery business where they pay you once a week. Speaking of money, the money is pretty decent. You're not going to sit around and make a cool million, but I have four kids and a wife, and we are able to support them on this income alone.
