Hello all, I am a full time economist that works out of a home office in the Boston area. About 6 months ago I left my large company for a smaller consulting firm as an independent consultant. The work is actually pretty good and I travel a lot, but I also have a lot of free time while my wife is at the office. I decided to start driving to contribute a bit more to my family and, to be honest, out of curiosity. So far I've done 26 rides in the Boston area, some Sat night, some Sun brunch time and some earlier today. I have a pretty nice car (2017 Jeep Cherokee, dark grey with tan leather interior), not the most efficient vehicle for uber. I've received one $1 tip in the app. I have also only received 4 ratings (all 5 star). I look forward to getting a bit more savvy and trying out different platforms. If anyone has a question about any sorts of calculations I would be happy to try to help as I am pretty good with a spreadsheet. Cheers.
