With 2014 coming to a close, I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you who have supported my site over the past 7 months. This will be our last post of 2014 but trust me when I say we have some very big things planned for 2015.
I started this site all the way back in May in order to empower drivers to earn more money by teaching them to work smarter, not harder. I would have been happy if my articles and podcasts helped a few hundred people but they ended up reaching and potentially helping tens of thousands of drivers. That was and still is pretty cool.
To be honest, it has been a lot of work though. And there have been times where I was pretty sick of driving and writing about driving and talking about driving. But every time I get an e-mail from a fan thanking me or a comment on one of my articles saying how useful a certain post was, that gives me the motivation to push through those feelings of exhaustion and continue doing what I do best!
Thanks to you guys, The Rideshare Guy has become one of the top influencers in the rideshare space and we have gained some awesome publicity through media outlets like the New York Times, CNET, Forbes, VICE and Yahoo Tech just to name a few. The end result of all of this is that my articles and podcasts will help even more drivers out there. I’d be lying if I didn’t say that that feels pretty good but I really do like helping people and I like knowing that I’m making peoples lives better.
It obviously hasn’t been all me though. Scott has been a big help with his insightful articles and Jack has also consistently contributed some pretty awesome and often hilarious Friday News Round-ups. We’ve also had some great guest posts by The Black Car Guy and The Rideshare Chick that I know a lot of you have appreciated. And last but not least, my virtual assistant Marie has done a great job taking care of a lot of the back end stuff.
I’ve got some pretty big plans for the site in 2015 but the core message won’t ever change. I’m still going to do everything I can to help you guys be better drivers, live more fruitful lives and have a little fun along the way. That has been my goal from the start and I don’t intend to let anything get in the way of that.
Before I take a two-week hiatus for the holidays, I wanted to leave you with plenty of material to keep you busy though. I know there are a lot of new readers who probably have missed a lot of this content and even if you’ve been here since the beginning it’s always good to brush up on this stuff. [Read more…]
