2019 Landscaping Project Video

Well, the landscaping is done and I just finished the original music score, so here’s the reveal video! Major thanks to Kristin Heggem, ALSA, our wonderful landscape architect for her wonderful plans. We can’t wait until spring to see everything in bloom! Huge props to Angel and his crew at Angelic Touch Landscaping. He was wonderful to work with and professional from start to finish. Amazing work. The final shout out goes to Colorado Sunroom and Window. The Solara louvered patio cover is just awesome!

Uber/Lyft driver makes $18.72 an hour…or does he?

My gawd this is a stoopid article. He made $257.34 gross working 13.75 hours, so $18.72 per hour driving Uber/Lyft. Sounds pretty good, eh? Gas was only $13.22 in his Prius, so that’s still $17.75 net after gas… However, the cost of wear and tear on his vehicle isn’t even mentioned though the $430 repair bill talked about in the article should have clued him in.

Let’s just use the IRS mileage rate of 58 cents per mile to estimate his true driving cost. Well, 291.1 miles at 58 cents is a whopping $168.84. Using this cost, his net is a paltry $88.50 or $6.44 per hour. Paints a different picture, doesn’t it.

I’m a driver for Uber and Lyft – here’s exactly how much I make in one week on the job

I’ve been driving for Lyft and Uber for almost one year. People always want to know how much money I make driving for the two companies, so I decided to track every penny I made for one week. The final tally was about $257 for less than 14 hours of work – or about $19 an hour.
