So the most obvious question in why you’re doing this, except obviously because you love people and connecting with them and all the cool benefits of the freedom of rideshare, is, “Can I make money?” “What kind of money can I make?”
Now, I can’t give you a straight answer, not because I don’t want to give you, but because I can’t. Here’s why. Depending on what kind of car you drive, what market you’re in, and your availability will depend [on] everything. And how good are you?
If you apply everything in all my courses, especially in the Master Elite Rideshare 101 course, you can do really well. But even then, there are limitations. If you’re not getting bonuses and referrals and all these other things that I’m going to talk about, that’s going to limit your income.
So I’m gonna give you some general numbers that I know some of you guys are going to be upset at because they’re not being faithful. But every market is different, so I’m going to give you generalities, okay?
So for my mid-tier market, Minneapolis, Twin Cities is a mid-tier market. I think you can make, and I’ve seen other people, and I’ve tried it, tried weeks that I worked a ton, you can make around $1,400 an hour just doing UberX.
Did I say $1,400 an hour? I mean $1,400 a week, okay? $1,400 an hour, sign me up for that. So email me if you know how to do that. $1,400 in a week, you can do just doing the regular platforms, and if you add different things like delivery and other kinds of services in between.
Now, if you can drive with an SUV or a luxurious car, you can increase that a lot. And if you have complete freedom, like I have limitations because I have three kids and a wife and other jobs, I can’t just work all the best peak times.
That’s also going to affect your time and how much you can make. And [you] also have to consider how good you are. And so all these things will factor in.
If you are able to do other things like referrals and other kinds of things like teaching, there’s a lot of things, you can make the six digits. And if you have the nice car, you can do it.
And the other big factor is what kind of market are you in? If you’re in a really good market that’s really busy and there’s high clientele, that could really work. So L.A., New York, [are] a lot more doable than a smaller city. So keep that in mind.
So, again, I’m not giving you a straight answer, but you can make pretty good income. But can you be a millionaire? No, you won’t be a millionaire. So when people say you can make as much as you want, that’s not true.
You can’t make as much as you want. There are limitations, so you have to consider that. What is your standard of living? And so if you’re happy making $60,000 a year, you can do that with rideshare.
It’s hard, but you can do it. But you may be driving 50, 60 hours a week. I know guys who don’t make good averages, but they work and they grind and they work a lot of hours. And you know what? They make $60,000, but they don’t have any time to live and they’re tired all the time.
So factor all those things. You know your situation, I don’t, but those are the general guidelines and the general ideas of what you can earn.
