DREAM JOB…OR IS IT?

By

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

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…

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…

I seem to pick up a lot of people with some version of an English accent, and because I lived in Australia for two years and my great grandmother was from New Zealand, I always try to guess which country they may be from.  The Aussie accent has a little…

WHAT NOW?

Randi looked disoriented as she settled in for a ride downtown. I could tell she was really distracted. Perhaps it was her pregnancy (5 months along, I guessed).  Randi was not American, I observed from her talking on the phone.  As we headed off into the endless stream of…

I have to be honest here and admit I have an obsession… it’s true and I can’t deny it any longer, it’s time to just be totally transparent here, OK I’m a FOODIE!  There I did it and it was pretty painless.  Yes…I, like many of you out there simply love…

THE IMPOSTER SYNDROME

Had I been sleeping under a rock?  I usually felt ahead of the curve in life, catching trends early on, but until Cindi brought up what she was suffering from I was totally in the dark on this one!

*Cindi

I picked her up in the Allston neighborhood…

Jersey Roots

Lynn seemed to be my match when it comes to the gift of gab, so naturally this was a dangerous situation.  I soon discovered that she was a Jersey girl to boot.  I am a Jersey boy, so what’s not to like about that?  I seem to really…

DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY???

By
on
June 2, 2019

 
When people pop into my car it’s quite easy to gauge if they want to have a conversation or not.  Some people are so locked into their own world, they don’t look up from their phones or computers. I always respect everyone’s space, but most people immediately engage…

INTERESTED IN BEING LIFE COACHED? If so please visit the menu at the top left on home page (on Mobil go to 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!
