Hello everyone! My name is Joe and I have been doing gig work since July 2020, starting with Instacart exclusively for about 3 months. Long story short I was inspired to begin gig work by finding YouTubers Steph on the Pedal and Dimples on Demand when I was literally stuck in Brooklyn during the start of the lockdown/pandemic after just leaving a 17 year career in retail management. Returning home to Chicago in May 2020 after 5 years in NYC, I found other channels like Jen On The Go and GigLife who were continued inspiration to get out there and try something completely new. Not only was I dealing with personal changes in life, but also navigating living through a pandemic like we all were. I eventually signed up for DoorDash, Uber Eats, Postmates, Shipt, and just recently got approved for CornerShop. Coming from the field that I was in, I really missed having a creative outlet and having the chance to share / teach information to others so I decided to take a chance and make a YouTube channel in January 2021. I am still learning and growing everyday, but appreciate the sense of community among this group of Gig Workers / YouTubers. If you would like to ride along with me on the journey, please visit any of the links below.
