56: Creating A Multi-6-Figure Business with Uber — Harry Campbell

Harry Campbell started the Rideshareguy.com started in 2014, he was a full time aerospace engineer and part-time Uber, Lyft and Sidecar driver.  He actually discovered rideshare as a passenger back in 2012 but it wasn’t until he moved from San Diego up to Orange County that he decided to give it a try as a driver.

He started driving for Lyft and Uber in early 2014 because it sounded like a fun, flexible way to earn extra income.  Some people found it odd that he was driving in his spare time since he had a good career as an engineer but he had always been a huge fan of diversifying your income.

It’s easy to get complacent working the same job day in and day out but when you’re working for someone else, you’re never really in control of your own destiny, no matter how safe you might feel.  And that’s what he liked so much about being a rideshare driver.

You’ve probably heard the cliche radio ads that say “Be Your Own Boss” and “Set Your Own Hours” but the funny thing is that being a rideshare driver really is a lot like running your own mini-business.  And as any business owner can tell you, running a business is very rewarding but it’s also a lot of work and there are a ton of challenges that you will face.

He quickly realized that there’s actually a lot more to driving than just getting people safely from Point A to Point B.  After his first weekend of driving, he sat down at his computer and started looking for blogs, resources or online communities of rideshare drivers.  He was shocked at the lack of what he found.  There was nothing other than a few Facebook groups that had a bunch of newbies like myself asking all the same questions!

After a week or so of hopelessly searching for information, he decided to take matters into his own hands and The Rideshare Guy was born.  He knew that there were lots of drivers with the same questions he had and he figured that if he could provide an authoritative resource with good information, he would be able to help out a few of his fellow drivers.  But he had no idea just how many people needed help!
