Get Paid to Drive with Uber offers  the possibility of earning extra money by driving people around your city.

It appears to be crossover between a taxi service and ride share service.  Although there is not much information on the website they do say that if you get if you get approved by them they send you a phone with the Uber app on it.  The app looks like it will work by people registering they need a ride and drivers with the app can arrange to pick them up. (to be confirmed).

As an Uber driver you set your own schedule and use the app to get extra work when you want it or when you need it

It appears to be quite new so there are not many cities are available yet, but they do ask you to say which city you want Uber to come to next in their frequently asked questions.


If you are professional driver you can drive in almost any city where Uber is available.  In other areas a sharing option is available where you can drive your personal car.

The requirements vary depending on the country and city you will be driving in, so you will need to check their website to see the requirements relevant to you.

While the options are currently limited this could be a company to watch out for in the future and is worth signing up for asking for it to come to your city, and you should also contact them about the option for ride-sharing if you want to use your personal car.

Mike Rowe is well known for his series ´Dirty Jobs´ where he travelled around  the US doing some of the dirtiest jobs around.  What started as a regular media opportunity has evolved into a mission for Mike Rowe who has discovered a huge skills gap with lots of traditional jobs available and no-one to fill them. As a result of Dirty Jobs, Mike went on to launch several websites to help people get back to work and challenge the idea that the school-university-job route is the only path to success.
The first 15 minutes of the interview talk about freelancers and entrepreneurs and he has some interesting things to say about freelancing:
  • For a long time people looked at freelancing as what you did if you couldn´t get a job, but as an expression, you know where freelance came from? The word? It´s actually an old medieval term, and it was applied to knights who were skilled in their trade but served no Lord and they were free lancers. 
  • The way you choose to approach your vocation is 100% a choice. Obviously there is inertia from what your parents did, the other people in your family, your friends. You take your cues from stuff that is around you...
  • There are enough examples of both (freelancers and entrepeneurs) for people to say "Do I have that entreprenuerial gene? Do I have that freelance gene? Am I going to be more comfortable with certainty or security?"
  • Part of the grown up conversation is this idea that security still exists in the workforce the way it always has. I think it´s pretty clear it doesn´t. 
  • I think alot of people are realising they were always a freelancer, they just didn´t own the identity.
  • I´ve always thought certainty was overrated. It´s critical, but the idea that you fall so in love with certainty that you start making all your decisions based on a known or quantiable outcome, that´s a suckers bet. The truth is, if your life is filled with certainty you´re going to be bored.
  • In the same way, if your life is filled with uncertainty you are going to be a nervous wreck.  Most people, if they really step back and think about it, I think will agree, you need equal parts of certainty and uncertainty.
  • You need uncertainty, which is just variety, and you need certainty, which is just security.
  • I don´t  think there is a one-size fits all solution.  I think everyone has got to try and figure it out for themselves, and that means getting bumped around a little bit.
  • I joked about that (passion) with a pig farmer back in 2004 and he said "The thing about passion is, you gotta have it, but only a moron would follow it. Bring your passion with you in all things, but never, ever follow it."
  • At least half the people we featured own their own business, they were entrepreneurs, they were inventors, they were very, very much outside of the box. They were just covered in crap, or something worse. It´s interesting that people don´t equate success visually with that particular image.  
  • When I think of all the plumbers I´ve worked with on the show, all of whom were very successful, they all say the same thing. It wasn´t their life´s dream to be a plumber..... what they did, they got to a point in their life where it was time to make money and they looked around at where everyone else was going and they just went the other way. 
  • First they identified the opportunity, then they got good at it, then they figured out a way to love it.

Micro tasks are exactly as the name suggests, small outsourced tasks, usually done by a number of people collaborating on a project. When the tasks can be chunked down, it allows clients to outsource the work to a greater number of people and get the work done faster.

The problem with chunking down a project into the smallest divisible part is the amount paid for each tasks is also very small. Micro tasks pay from as little as 1 cent per job. Yes, you read that right, 1 cent. $0.01!

So a natural question would be to wonder why on earth would people even bother doing these kinds of jobs? At 1 cent per task, even if each task only takes 1 minute, you are only earning $1 per hour.

Right now you are probably making a mental note to not even bother looking at any micro task sites because you are not prepared to work for such ridiculous pay. Or are you? Here are a few reasons why it could be worth your while checking out the microtasking sites:

  1. Not all task pay so little. Some pay several dollars for each task. If you can do a few of those an hour, you are now looking at the same hourly rate as some regular jobs.
  2. If you are new to the online working world, you may not yet have the confidence to go out and pitch for new freelance work or get new clients. Use it to get experience, and you might even find some clients give you further job opportunities.
  3. Use it for a specific item you want to buy. Mechanical Turk for example can pay in in Amazon credit.
  4. You log on see the tasks available and do them right away. No bidding on freelance sites, no waiting to see if you get picked.

Will it ever give you enough to be the equivalent of a part-time job? Unlikely. But if you are going to do it, dedicate a block of time to do the task. Microtasking requires focus and concentration to be successful. You are not going to dip in and out to earn a few pennies, so if you want it to be worthwhile you need to be ´in the flow´ to get through as many tasks as possible.

Use it as a stepping stone, not as a long-term strategy, and then when you ramp up your activities to the next level, you can use the microtasking sites to get work done for your business!
