There seems to be this notion out in the world that Uber and Lyft drivers still make a lot of money. While that may have been true a few years ago, these days one of the most common complaints I hear from drivers is that they’re not making enough money.
New drivers are especially at risk because there is a steep learning curve in this industry. It’s not rocket science being a rideshare driver, but it is a little more challenging than it might seem. And unlike other jobs where everybody makes the same amount from day 1, a more savvy driver will be able to make more than a brand new driver since there are all sorts of tips and tricks that will impact your bottom line.
As you drive more, you’ll gain valuable experience and likely increase your income. But in the meantime, there are a few key things you can do to start increasing your income today.
