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!
