When we start a new job, we are always behind the learning curve, and moving into uncharted territory. After 20 years of continuous employment with my current employer, I have added a second job. I’m finding out that I’m going to have to go places if I really want to make money, with Uber.
Like Dallas proper
Perhaps even into Oaklawn and Lemon………….
Or even worse, Uptown.
Today was Monday, and I stayed in Far North Dallas, actually Plano to be exact. I only had two clients. The first pick up was at Frito Lay HQ on Legacy to 15th St. The other was from someplace at 4700 W Park Blvd to someplace in Lewisville. Between the two fares, the total $$ was okay. About $47 total. A decent total, if I can average that amount over 5 or 6 days, for part-time income. If I want to stay with my current day employer.
But I need about $200 a day in fares, to be able to quit my current 20 year experiment. And more $$$ means more rides are needed.
So maybe on Thursday, I’ll hang out in the Oaklawn and Lemmon are to see if things can be better. Maybe Uptown too. But only until it gets dark. Driving around there in the darkness is total madness.
What I’d really like are long runs like I did today, and perhaps trips to the Airport, DFW or Love Field. Those would be good too.
