A lot of people judge their rideshare driving success by how much money they make. And while I agree that money is definitely an important part of rideshare, I think drivers also need to take advantage of the networking opportunities that are out there for the taking. If you were to stop someone on the street and start talking to them, they’re probably not going to be very willing to help you out. But as soon as that passenger gets into your car, there is an instant connection and sense of trust that is instilled between the two of you.
I have met some amazing people while driving and I’m always looking for ways that I can help my passengers and also for ways that they can help me. Today on the podcast, I interview four drivers who are doing just that. In addition to being drivers, today’s guests all have their own side businesses that they are able to promote while driving.
The goal of today’s podcast is to really get you guys thinking about ways to leverage your rideshare driving opportunities. Sure it’s fun to drive people around and talk to them but what is your longer term goal for rideshare and life in general? I’m a huge fan of starting your own business and working for yourself but it’s definitely a lot harder than working a regular job for someone else.
All of the things you guys love about rideshare: the flexibility, setting your own hours, working for yourself, etc can be had with your own business though. And I think the combination of being a rideshare driver and having your own side business is something that sounds very appealing. So I hope you enjoy this podcast and feel free to leave a note below if you have any questions, comments or concerns.
