About Me

I have been working for gig apps for about 4 years now. I started out just part-time, but am now doing it as my full time job. In about a year of doing DoorDash, I could make about $35,000/year. I started doing gig jobs for side money on my days off full time work, but then it ended up becoming my main source of income due to the pandemic and also what some would call the ensuing "Great Resignation." I didn't really want to work for anyone else anymore. I ended up feeling unfulfilled with my career, and have recently graduated a bootcamp for digital marketing as I now try to land a job in that career field while using DoorDash as a way to make money.
