Conversations with Charlie Dyer, Guest: Harry Campbell
Conversations with Charlie Dyer
It wasn’t all that long ago that what we now think of as the Gig Economy didn’t even exist. And, yet the granddaddy of disruption is not only a household brand, Uber has become synonymous with all forms of ridesharing. So, ordering an Uber or a Lyft or even a completely different service that isn’t even a rideshare service is an Uber just as brands like Kleenex are what people say instead of facial tissue. For better or worse, Uber is the face of the Gig Economy and remains the largest rideshare company in the United States recruiting and signing up tens of thousands of drivers every month but leaving them to largely fend for themselves. Harry Campbell, author of The Rideshare Guide: Everything You Need to Know about Driving for Uber, Lyft, and Other Ridesharing Companies continues to be one of the voices in the wilderness trying to help people along the path to becoming a successful rideshare driver.Website Link
