These are my stories working my side hustle as a Lyft driver in Southern California primarily in OC and LA areas. I write these stories with the hope you'll learn something about this gig. If you are a driver you can pickup tips from me as I go through learning about this #gigeconomy life. For the riders I hope you learn something from your fellow riders and how you can be a better rider yourself.

Working these gigs is enjoyable but can be grueling. Being your own boss is awesome but without proper training or research you can find yourself working an upward battle. I hope my stories help you. Be safe out there!

I drive a 2018 Kia Niro that I bought 740 days ago.

Throughout these stores I may reference to apps, tools, products and services that I use on a daily basis, most of these are affiliate links and by you clicking on them you are helping me monetarily. Thanks!
