In an effort to serve up content that would’ve helped me when I first started my side gig, I felt compelled to put together a list of the top five tips that I wish I knew before I dove head first into becoming an independent contractor.
Welp, it’s finally happened. Bill AB5 has passed the California Senate and will be signed into law in January 2020. So, what does that even mean? A lot actually. It could mean that it’s the beginning of the end of rideshare driving being a viable, flexible side gig.
I know what it’s like to start a new side gig from zero. I also know, first hand, what it’s like to have zero subscribers, zero followers, zero likes, zero ratings, zero visitors, zero comments, zero wind in your sails, zero chance for growth.
Don’t get me wrong. Clearing $1,000 per week driving rideshare is not easy. Just like any other job, you gotta show up and put in the work in order to get paid. Driving for Uber or Lyft is no different.
