We recently had a driver, Andrew “Andy” Micka, reach out to us about a clever (and lucrative) business he started, which grew out of rideshare driving for Uber and Lyft. When we talk about “working smarter, not harder”, Andy really exemplifies what this looks like. Today, Andy will discuss his business, Arrivals with Andy, what he did to grow it, and tips for other drivers who’d like to diversify and increase their incomes as well.
Uber and Lyft started me out on the journey I’m on, working 100% for myself through contractor services, and eventually starting my own company, Arrivals With Andy, LLC. I left my decently-paying, full-time, Monday-Friday sales job to pursue this new career path, and I’d like to share my successes, failures, accomplishments, and goals, in hopes of helping them along their own journey – whether it be a part-time gig or, like me, a full-time career transition.
I believe in excellent, but simple, customer service – after all, that’s what we’re doing here, isn’t it? Providing a customer service. Being kind to people, empathetic to any problems they’re having, and doing other simple things like helping them load and unload luggage or groceries, assisting them with installing and removing a carseat, and all-in-all just providing a total service that leaves them a little happier when they leave my car than when they entered.
