So what is a real way to earn real money without selling your first born to get started? Enter Driving for Lyft.
Lyft has become one of the top earning platforms for moms and we’ve compiled a few pretty compelling reasons why after talking to a few moms who are absolutely crushing it with Lyft:
It is safe.
It can be a scary world out there but not so much with Lyft. You are in your own car and driving on your own terms. Rider profiles are complete and tied to real payment methods allowing you to interact with verified people (no internet trolls allowed). You can choose your hours and work the daylight shift vs. the 2am pub crawl. Every move you make is tracked and monitored, which for safety feels pretty good.
It pays out fast and furiously.
Not only does it pay out weekly. If you are low on gas, you can request a quick payout and from what the drivers tell us, you get it pretty much right on the spot. Not waiting 2 weeks for the angry PR lady to hand you a check is pretty nice plus let’s get real – bills don’t wait to get paid. Thanks Lyft.
You can set your own hours.
This is one of the biggest benefits according to Lyft drivers. You literally get in your car and turn the app on and you are live. Want to stop, turn it off. One driver said they take rides only while their kid is in school. Another driver who was saving to buy a house (how cool is that), will grab a few rides after work to help bring in extra money.
The mom mobile is a premium service.
Ever think the soccer minivan or SUV would be coveted? Well it is. With Lyft, bigger parties need more space. Minivans and SUVs are needed for more than two riders or riders with luggage. All pay a premium.

Bumped into this quote recently:
“Amateurs built the ark, experts built the titanic.”
Look around you. Some of the most amazing things we have came from people that weren’t “qualified”. Qualification, intelligence, ingenuity, heck even education doesn’t compare to action and the experience that ensues. It is time for you to do. To solidify this point here are people who were not “qualified” by other’s standards when they decided to take action:
- Steven Spielberg was rejected twice from the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts. Regardless he built an empire that has made over 9 Billion dollars.
- Walt Disney was told by his editor that he lacked imagination and had no good ideas.
- J.K Rowling was a broke, depressed, divorced single mother simultaneously writing a novel while studying.
- Dr. Seuss had his first book rejected by 27 different publishers. Wasn’t qualified to be an author.
- Elvis Presley was fired after his first performance at the Grand Ole Opry, The guy actually told him “You ain’t going nowhere son. You ought to go back to driving a truck.”
…and the list goes on and on (Zuck and Facebook, Bill Gates, etc.).
My point: Go for it if you feel it is your destiny. Forget about the stigma of “qualification” – that is just keeping you down or giving you an excuse to not start at all.
Remember, many times we find ourselves more in the journey than the destination. Life is too short not to try. So, do it.
