IS CAREER-SWITCHING THE ANSWER

Career-Switching Tips

Career switching is becoming a choice for many different people for a number of different reasons. For some, it is because they have been in the same career for most of their professional life and they are bored or find that they are stagnant and have no where to grown any further; they are at a dead end. Others may find that their chosen career isn't what they thought it would be and it doesn't bring them the happiness and…

Unexpected!!!

I normally drive for Lyft on the weekends but I decided to try a Tuesday this past week. I had my longest ride yet to date! I drove her about two hours. She was heading to visit her boyfriend who lived out there but her car was busted. Nice girl. We listened to the radio and talked. She ended up tipping me $100 for the trouble. I drove home with a big smile on my face. Grateful for long rides and kind people!!

Great good for you

Does anyone drive for both?

I used to only do Lyft but I started driving for Uber too this past month. This way I can get the best of both worlds. I do like Uber's app a little more tho. Anyone else drive for both?

I drove for both but have found that I get more pings through Uber

I had no job

When my girl told me she was pregnant I had just lost my job. I needed something fast so I started driving for Lyft and it's been good. It's so easy and the money is there. I work 9-7 and stop for breaks. I don't work the later times because I don't like the drama that comes with it, but the days I do pretty well.

Wow sounds like just a advertisement, I had alot of dishes so I just loaded the dish washer and turned it on , wow dishes cleaned…

My Lyft driver saved me

This just happened to me.. I went out this past weekend to meet up with some friends. I was out for a couple hours and when I got home I realized I didn’t have my keys!! After a brief panic I realized that the bar and restaurant didn’t have them, they weren’t in my door or anywhere around.. I ended up trying to the lost item option in the app to call my driver and luckily he had them!! An hour later he was able to stop by and drop them off. It’s…

She just lost it...

I drive for Lyft and I picked up a mother and her little girl the other day. The mother held her baby's hand as they rode silently. I noticed that the mom looked extremely stressed. I normally don't like to butt in on people's lives, but I decided to ask if she was ok. She lost it and started crying hysterically. I pulled over. She told me her husband had just passed away three days ago and they were on their way to visit with family. My heart…

Absolutely! You did more than you even needed to. If I had been that mama, I would of rated you greately. Sometimes people ignore…

BUSY weekend!

I had a busy weekend! There was a HUGE wedding in town and I guess there was quite literally NO place to park your car at the place they had the wedding so the guests had to get rides to and from the hotel to the wedding. I have driven for Lyft for a while and never seen such a busy time. Luckily all the guests were pretty awesome.

The only problem is that lyft is not meant to be fulltime job, as a gig in between jobs it can help a bit.. But unfortunately it's…

Make sure you stay safe out there

I enjoy driving for Lyft and so far (knock on wood) no issues to date, but I know many women are too scared to even consider doing it. Here are some ways to keep yourself safe. I follow a lot of these myself, especially numbers 5 and 7! https://hyrecar.com/blog/uber-lyft-female-drivers-safety/ Remember the world can be a scary place, but work doesn't have to be!!!

Driving for lyft with PPZ so different than I thought!

When lyft first introduced personal power zones in my city I was skeptical and even considered stopping cause I just wasn’t sure about the change. I was already deep into doing prime time and I had my whole daily circuit mapped out but I figured I’d try it and see how it impacted my earnings. At first it just felt like a lot of waiting around. But now I’ve been doing it for a while and the bonuses def add up. Add that to the reduced cost of gas…

Hi Omar Barnes - what is the personal power zone? Is that something where you get paid more for driving in a particular area?

Matt Bornhorst Yes usually high volume areas and times especially big cities during the beginning and ending of normal business…
