A COFFEE CONNECTION & *A WILDLY IMPROBABLE GOAL…

By

May 2, 2022

When I saw the name Gian Luigi Nigro I thought to myself, “Now that’s a solid Italian name!” I picked up Gian at a Caffé Nero, located in a suburban town surrounding Boston. Once Gian settled into my backseat it didn’t take long for us to connect. With his…

THE GREAT RESIGNATION?

By
on
February 25, 2022

I’m thinking you can actually get a feel for unemployment statistics by sampling the traffic flow.  During the height of COVID, with the early lockdowns, traffic was nonexistent. I owned the city back then! But slowly, traffic has clogged its way back to normal and into the nightmarish conditions…

HOPING NO ONE WOULD TOUCH HER HAIR

I wouldn’t normally mention race, but for this story it is relevant. Mercedes was a woman of color whom I picked up in the inner city.  Sitting in the backseat, it didn’t take Mercedes long to launch her engaging personality. The first thing…

I COULD BE JUST A LITTLE CRAZY

Okay, so I may show some signs of “losing it” just driving around this city. You might think I’m a little crazy and I wouldn’t disagree. Traffic is back to nightmare conditions and worse than pre-Covid times. This may be because people don’t…

YOUR NORTH STAR IS CALLING

One thing I have noticed with some of the Millennials and Gen-Zs that I pick up is that many are dissatisfied with their career choices. Many are looking for a purpose… or in my life-coaching world, “finding your North Star.”* In other words, connecting with…

FINDING YOUR TRUE PATH IN LIFE

Part of the life coach training coursework I took during my Covid year is based on finding your true purpose in life*.  Sometimes it never happens and sometimes it does.  When it does happen to someone, it is usually because they become aware of…

BLM: 2 VIEWS FROM THE INNER CITY

By

May 31, 2021

Covid-19 has definitely changed our lives in many ways, some good and some not so much. In my ride-sharing world with many white-collar workers stuck working remotely from home, I find myself spending more time in the inner-city, picking up essential workers and first responders.  I have mentioned in…

SOMETIMES YOU JUST HAVE TO DRIVE ON…

By

April 29, 2021

Most of what I write about is centered on conversations with passengers that ignite my soul and perhaps yours as well.  Out of over 37,000 rides, representing approximately 80,000 people I have engaged with over the last 7 years, I can only think of a handful of riders that…

STAYING IN YOUR LANE…

BRANDY

Driving in Boston or any major city can be dangerous and unpredictable at times.  Drifting into another lane or not signaling that you’re switching lanes can cause major problems with other drivers.  This is not such a different concept, when applied to the bigger picture of life.

A ROAD LESS TRAVELED…

By

February 18, 2021

Sometimes we travel unfamiliar roads to achieve a goal we have set for ourselves. I know I have done this many times, such as when I took a job teaching in Australia to get that much-needed experience in a first job, or when I decided to become a life…

Long story short: I started working with the Ride-Sharing platforms 8 years ago as a sabbatical from the corporate world. I have found Ride-Sharing part-time to be one of the most engaging gigs I have ever experienced. SOOOO… I decided not to return to corporate life and use Ride-Sharing as a way to market my Life-Coaching practice and more importantly, as a platform to help people through life coaching, conversations and random acts of kindness. I am a very HAPPY camper now!
