Are you ready to stop living paycheck to paycheck? Do you want to own your time? Rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft offer a new world of opportunities for millions of people, but no one knows where to start. Life gets busy, the bills stack up, and instruction manuals aren't provided. Just a few years ago, Mukon Ngoyi wore these same shoes: working three jobs, struggling to pay the rent. These days, she's one of the highest rated drivers around, earns $90,000 a year, and is known as the "Hustlin' Hummingbird" of the rideshare game. Making it to the top wasn't easy, though, and now, Mukon is ready to share the hard lessons she learned on the road. Her debut book, Hustlin' Hummingbird, is not only about her own rags-to-riches story, and not just a tale of female strength and perseverance, but also a guidebook for how people from all walks of life can follow her road to success. Mukon outlines everything an aspiring driver--or a curious rider--needs to know about the rideshare business, and explains how you can transform it from an occasional hobby into a moneymaking career that YOU control. Buckle your seatbelt. Start the ignition. Hustlin' Hummingbird is the book you've been waiting for.
