Author: Mukon Ngoyi
Are you ready to stop living paycheck to paycheck? Do you want to own your time? Rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft offer a new world of opportunities for millions of people, but no one knows where to start. Life gets busy, the bills stack up, and instruction manuals aren't provided. Just a few years ago, Mukon Ngoyi wore these same shoes: working three jobs, struggling to pay the rent. These days, she's one of the highest rated drivers around, earns $90,000 a year, and is known as the "Hustlin' Hummingbird" of the rideshare game. Making it to the top wasn't easy, though, and now, Mukon is ready to share the hard lessons she learned on the road. Her debut book, Hustlin' Hummingbird, is not only about her own rags-to-riches story, and not just a tale of female strength and perseverance, but also a guidebook for how people from all walks of life can follow her road to success. Mukon outlines everything an aspiring driver--or a curious rider--needs to know about the rideshare business, and explains how you can transform it from an occasional hobby into a moneymaking career that YOU control. Buckle your seatbelt. Start the ignition. Hustlin' Hummingbird is the book you've been waiting for.

A Darkly Comedic Coming of (Middle) Age Adventure - Why would a financially-comfortable, fifty-something father of two-with a Mercedes-drive Uber late at night on the toughest streets of Chicago? Pat White (pseudonym), a financial advisor and business strategist, decided to go undercover to research how the disruptive technology of ridesharing affects commerce. Soon his business study warped into a study of humanity . . . and himself. This reserved Baby Boomer first had to face his fear of picking up strangers in his own car and driving them to unknown locations. Most were over-privileged, over-served Millennials in route to their next adrenaline rush or wherever they were crashing for the night. Some treated him like he was invisible--making out, arguing, discussing sex and drugs, and lying to lovers on the phone about their whereabouts as if no one else were in the car. Others wished him to partake in their partying or craved his counsel on the most intimate details of their lives. Still others were just looking to pick a fight. Rarer were the tired and the timid: those returning to family after working long hours with hopes of a brighter tomorrow, those fleeing abuse, and those just fleeing a thunderstorm. This summer experiment took White down roads he never imagined he would travel. Soon he found himself embracing danger, longing for the thrill of voyeuristic glimpses into private lives made public, and facing the depths of his shadow personality. Come along for the bumpy ride as this sharp-tongued observer shares the always wild, sometimes dark, often humorous, and surprisingly touching side of Chicago nightlife in the smart-phone generation. Hop into the Back of Patrick's Silver Benz and Buckle Up!

This is my first edition of funny stories I gathered while driving in the great city of Chicago doing Uber and Lyft. I mainly drove late at night, and I ran across so many interesting people and heard so many personal stories. It reminds me of the TV series "Taxicab Confessions". After awhile, it seemed that I was having a conversation with the entire city (as the stories slowly blended together). Please enjoy this free e-book that I can share with you some of my more fascinating tales. Be well!

I never in a million years thought that finding a lost pair of keys would lead to adventure.

I never in a million years thought that finding a lost pair of keys would lead to adventure. All my life, I’ve been perfectly average. Compared to the rest of my high-achieving, type-A family, it feels impossible to stand out. While I’d love to make my big artistic dreams happen, I’m kind of stuck, thanks to a bunch of lame things like “affordable rent” and “keeping the internet on.” Dreaming doesn’t pay the bills. Freelance design work and part-time rideshare driving does. And it’s nice, for the most part. Finding a passenger’s thumb drive usually means reporting, returning, yay-hurrah-good-job-me. Except this time. This time, I put the thumb drive in my computer. Hey, I’m just trying to be helpful! Suddenly a chat window pops up and the owner of the drive is bribing me to fly halfway across the world. Today. Turns out he's the super hot fare I haven't been able to stop thinking about...who just so happens to be Logan Weiss—the crazy-hot 29-year-old billionaire known as "the most eligible bachelor in tech”. What the hell am I even doing?
Certified as an 'Uber Wine' driver, James also gave countless rides to fun seeking fares in California's fastest growing wine region. Out of the experience came a wealth of "Uber stories". This book is a collection of those stories.
Author: James MacFarlane
Publisher: Life & Times
It was the summer of 2016. The most expensive forest fire in US history raged in the remote tourist destination of Big Sur, California. The author, who is hyper-allergic to smoke, was forced to evacuate. Unable to wander far from home due to business interests, James Macfarlane fled from one Central California community to another, dodging fast breaking wildfires like raindrops. With a dwindling pocketbook and an aged car that died while in exodus, James had to come up with a plan. It took the form of a new car and an application to drive for the popular ride sharing service Uber. Over the next four months James gave over a thousand rides to fares ranging from the CEO of a billion dollar company, to a high-schooler who had missed the bus, to a baby-bag left in a restaurant by parents now a hundred miles away at the hotel (with a crying baby). Certified as an 'Uber Wine' driver, James also gave countless rides to fun seeking fares in California's fastest growing wine region. Out of the experience came a wealth of "Uber stories." This book is a collection of those stories. But it's more. The experience was part of a journey James was set on, with much humor and wisdom emerging during the odyssey. While driving, nearly every passenger wanted to hear an Uber story, and many in-turn provided one as the process called life unfolded adventure in after adventure and mishap after mishap, along with a number of heartwarming experiences. It is the eternal flow of stories, and people's interest in hearing of them, that sponsored "Uber James" to write this book.
