    I’m super excited today to release this podcast interview with Ryder Pearce, co-founder of Sherpa.  I did a short interview with him almost 5 months ago when this site was still in its infancy and it’s amazing to see how far we’ve both come since then.  As you guys know, my site is all about helping drivers be more efficient and earn more by working smarter, not harder.  So I’m always looking for people to interview or topics to talk about that will help drivers out there become better at what they do and more efficient too!

    It was a pleasure to interview Ryder about Sherpa because their goals align nicely with everything that I preach: diversifying your income, using data to be a more efficient driver, driving for multiple TNC’s, etc.  During the podcast, Ryder also broke some news about the future of Sherpa and a new company that they’re going to be partnering with.  It’s actually one that I’ve had on my radar so make sure that you stay tuned for that news.
