Damon shares his first night stories and impressions about the realities of driving for Lyft as a totally new driver learning the way. Each night is a new lesson learned.
Towards the end of the video, Damon gives us his side hustle thumbs-up review regarding making decent quick money.
Becoming a rideshare driver can be intimidating. Who will get in your car? Will you be safe? What might I expect?
As part of our Penny Stupid Project, Damon is taking one for the team and actually getting in the seat to give you an inside look at what he experienced. Subscribe to our update emails to stay in the loop.
Are there good things and bad things about rideshare or driving for Lyft?
Of course, there are, but that’s the same with any side hustle opportunity. Your decision should be how much money you can expect to make in your extra hours and what the side hustle is like.
If you live out in a rural area, you will probably not have the same results as Damon in Phoenix.
However, I’ve met rideshare drivers who drive towards a busier area, spend the night doing rides, and then go home with heavier pockets. The flip side is if you are in a less busy area, there will be fewer drivers to compete against.
Enjoy Damon’s experience. Watch the video. He is a great storyteller.
