Since we’ve gained a lot of new subscribers over the past couple months, I wanted to remind you guys that I am available to mentor new Lyft drivers in the LA/OC area. I became a Lyft mentor after only 29 rides due to my perfect 5 star rating and high reliability and I’ve actually had only two official mentees since. My first mentee was just a random driver but my second one was a good friend of mine. I met up with him one morning and he made the request at the same time I went in to driver mode and voila!
I’ve had countless ‘unofficial’ mentees but I don’t get paid for any of those. So if you’re already a driver, I’m also available to mentor you guys too. Just reach out to me via e-mail or social media and we’ll get the ball rolling. I can help you with things like finding new companies to drive for, understanding driving resources, rideshare taxes & insurance and everything else you could imagine.
In addition, if you’d like more great free advice I encourage you to follow me on Twitter where I tweet all of the latest rideshare news during the week. Or you can head over to our Q&A Forum and ask a question there. I’m usually able to respond to questions within 24-48 hours.
