THE STRANGER EXPERIENCE

By
on
November 2, 2020

When Covid-19 hit, we all had no clue what craziness would follow: locking down, white collar folks working from home, restaurants opened for takeout only, college students sent home, hospitals filled to capacity with sick patients, and waiting up to 45 minutes for an Uber/Lyft pick-up. Now, 9 months…

THE ELEPHANT IN THE CAR…

By
on
August 3, 2020

It’s been 5 months since the first COVID-19 lockdown. Rather than opting out of ride-share driving and collecting unemployment as so many drivers have chosen to do, I prefer to keep driving.  I am so grateful that I continue to be safe as an essential worker, and actually feel…

SOCIAL DISTANCING OF A DIFFERENT KIND!

By
on
June 28, 2020

I’ve probably said this before, but I never know who might pop into my ride and what story or conversation we will share. Now with the Corona, ridership is down and so are the variety of folks I might pick up; perhaps there is a correlation there someplace…  NOT,…

A Masked Society

Most of my passengers wear face masks these days, and some also wear plastic or latex gloves. A few even come prepared to disinfect my entire backseat.  I always appreciate that as it saves me from doing it, but I do wish Uber and Lyft would issue…

My Corona

From my perspective and probably yours, we’ve never experienced anything like this pandemic situation.  Whether you have contracted or been exposed to this virus, it doesn’t matter because we are all affected!   Many of you are locking down and limiting your exposure the best you can, which…

NERDY EXCITEMENT INDEED!

By

March 7, 2020

You could feel the excitement surrounding Sayeed as he
climbed into my car at the airport.  He
couldn’t wait to get going and begin his day in Boston.  Sayeed was a programmer who had recently
graduated from MIT and was working in Silicon Valley.  He’d come back for his annual trek to…

DREAM JOB…OR IS IT?

By
on
December 5, 2019

It’s hard to believe I have picked up people from over 77 counties,
but Boston has turned into a true International city.  Europeans in particular seem to love this
city as it is one of the few in the US whose architecture shows incredible
artisan skill and detail that you can never…

CHANGES

As David Bowie sings about dealing with changes in his popular song with the same name (& playing in the background)… it makes me think about changes in my own life.  We all face them sooner or later… there’s just no escaping them.  I have written about change in the past…

WAITING FOR AN ANSWER

By

October 29, 2019

Boston Medical Center is one of the city’s bigger hospitals. It’s known for housing one of the top trauma centers and the Boston University teaching hospital.  Unfortunately, the campus is close to 3 Methadone clinics (“Methadone Mile”) and several homeless shelters, so the neighborhood can sometimes be a little sketchy.  I…

LOVE, TRUST & THE COLLEGE EXPERIENCE

By
on
September 30, 2019

One of my more popular conversation options is Dating Advice… and why not? The LOVE department affects everyone and there are always questions or concerns; sometimes, Dating Advice turns into Venting Sessions, another popular choice.  On this particular day, I picked up two different guys who were heading off to college in the…

INTERESTED IN BEING LIFE COACHED? If so please visit the menu at the top left corner (3 horizontal bars). ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Now more about me... Long story short: I started with UBER (6) years ago as a sabbatical from enterprise B2B sales. I have found driving for Uber in Boston to be one of the most engaging gigs I have ever experienced. SOOOO… I decided not to return to corporate life and use Ubering as a platform to help people through life coaching, conversations and random acts of kindness. I am a very HAPPY camper now!
