I just got done reading Mr. Money Mustache’s new post on driving for Uber, which brought back some feels.  Then I found Mad Money Monster’s interview with an Uber driver!  It seems like rideshare driving is one of the less talked about side hustles out there, but in my opinion one of the more profitable (and social) ones.
