Encouragement to seek a side job

My guy and I are supportive of each other. When we first started dating, my guy would often suggest things that I could do to earn extra income on the side.

It's funny, but I don't have that business-money sense like he does. He teaches a course on the side. This semester, my guy doesn't have a course to teach.

He has often encouraged me to teach a night or weekend course, like he does here and there. He also suggested that I do tutoring or provide editing services on student papers.

I decided to do something different. I asked him whether I should earn a bit of money by becoming an Uber driver.
"That's a great idea," he said. "You know your way around the city, you're personable, and you like to drive."
"I'm thinking that it would be a great fit. I could drive on the weekend and earn a bit of cash," I replied.
"For sure. You'd be a great driver."
The good news is that I have been approved. I simply need to register for a business number.


  1. I have no desire to dampen your enthusiasm but there is a risk associated with picking up strangers. Please be careful.

    1. You're thoughtful and you mean well. My enthusiasm is intact. I will be careful.

  2. Good luck to you, CB...that's a job you can schedule when you want. Wish I could find a side job that I could schedule whenever I wanted to pick up some extra money...yes, I know Uber wouldn't be a good fit for a directionally challenged driver. LOL

    Hugs and blessings...Cat

    1. Thanks, Cat! The flexibility is nice. You do have the Uber app that is a GPS, so you still have a guide.

      You do have a point, though. My guy would never do Uber because he is so directionally challenged that he would feel like a fraud... haha!
