Today on the Hub

Thank You I’m still in shock. I have over 70 subscribers on YouTube from just 25 videos of me blabbing away and talking excessively.  This small accomplishment is next to nothing, yet huge for one less than four months into an online world. This is truly a work in progress.  I’ve been mentally stuck in “Learning …

Uber Creeper

I got a request for ride, it was 11 minutes away, but my day had not been especially busy.  I accepted. The rider calls and asks how far away I am.  I reply almost 5 miles. “Ok, I’ll wait for you then.” Um… ok.  I hope so, because you asked for the ride, yes?  I’m dispatched because …

Robbed While Driving Uber

You can bet your ass I will be hyper vigilant from this point forward and I never felt this feeling of being completely vulnerable.  It’s scary.  It’s eye opening.  I’m sharing this experience with you in hopes that anyone out there reading this will learn from my mistakes and have a little extra awareness for …

Instacart Review

Originally when I decided to do this job review blog & vlog, I was going to post the review after 2 weeks, but due to finances and available shifts, I end up writing this after 4 weeks.  Read on to hear my experiences and what I’ve learned about working with Instacart as a 1099 independent …

Uber or Lyft… the long answer

Gosh I was ready to believe that Lyft was the superior driver service experience; like so many things, I wanted to like Lyft better.  All I had heard for months was how they treated their drivers so much better etc. etc. And I was excited to have finally completed my sign-up process.  I liked that …

Lyft Review

I’ve been officially driving using the Lyft platform for about a month at this point; although, I had been approved some nearly 2 months prior. I postponed completing my inspection and training with Lyft out of sheer procrastination.  I say that, but on top of taking care of my family and home, initially I was still working …

Finances Without Paystubs

Loans Good Luck with this one!  Until you have a good two year history as a self employed individual, most banks will look at you like a hairy three-eyed monster when you come in asking for virtually any type of loan.  Apply for that refinance on your mortgage or new car loan before you quit …

Uber Review

Uber is a technologies company, not a transportation company.  When you E-Hail a ride using the Uber app, you are not taking an Uber… You are taking a ride with an independent contractor,  who is sharing their personal vehicle with you and using technology provided by Uber to connect with your need for a ride …

The Value of Time

Initially I was so excited about getting a ride request that I would just put up with anything it didn’t matter how long I waited or how far I had to drive.  Before long I realized some people don’t value your time, even if they’re paying you for it. I don’t cancel often, but it’s always for …
