How Uber Makes My Life Easier #Sponsored

From the moment I wake up to the time I go to bed, my days are hectic and scheduled with meetings and events back-to-back. And living in Los Angeles, those events and meetings can have me rushing from one corner to the city to another - taking up a lot of time and energy, every single day.
This is why UberX has been a god-send to me ever since I started using it in 2012. The UberX app has enabled me to lead a productive work-week in a way that has not been previously possible. I can schedule rides beforehand and/or have rides linked to my smartphone’s calendar (so that my meetings’ destinations automatically appear in the app when I open it up to get a ride).
Of course, having someone else drive enables me to focus on other things like having phone calls or even catching up on work during the periods between Meeting A and Meeting B.
Being able to put my commute-time to good use (as a way to refocus and re-energize myself) for my next meeting or event in a busy work day has enabled me to give 110% percent to my team and to my audience.

Recently, Uber came up with a sister app called Uber Eats which basically enables me to order great food from a number of excellent restaurants/cafes in my area and have an Uber driver to deliver it to me.
Driving and following directions are not my best skill-set, so having an Uber driver get me from one destination to the other easily has been crucial to enable me to have a great work-day.
I also love that I can easily pull up my trip history on my smartphone or computer to keep track of my work expenses.
Having someone drive me goes beyond convenience - it feels like the smart and sane thing to do. Not having to deal with navigation and finding parking and instead using the time to re-energize myself in between meetings and events has enabled me to lead my life the way I want - from dawn till dusk.

    Uber is my trusted transport service and knowing that now it provides more services like Uber Eats, I know we’ll have a long and stronger partnership.

  • Susan Armstrong says:

    I am so gonna need this app. I still haven’t got my driver’s licence coz I’m scared of driving (seriously) and I can’t live with my dad’s or friends’ cars forever. So Uber it is!

  • Zarah Montreal says:

    Can I just say you look really utterly amazing and beautiful Heidi? I’m a big fan!

    Uber is really uber friendly and useful. I’ve met countless great drivers who became my friends.

    I hate driving, I am not good with directions, my family knows that.. They suggested Uber to me so I can go to places I need to go. Uber made my life easier too!

  • Wynona says:

    Why so gorgeous Heidi? Love all your photos here!!

  • Jessica says:

    It’s nice that there are Uber now and helps me a lot with my go-sees and rendezvous with friends. Back in the day, I used to ask and plead to my cousins who had cars to help me go to places I needed to go to.

  • Lorelei Chung says:

    I’m the worst driver ever, my mom tells me that a lot, she can’t let me drive even for just a kilometer. So Uber is really my life saver!

  • Melissa B says:

    Uber does make life easier. I am fond of using their services and have encountered really accommodating people throughout my commuting life. I could never get to where I am going without Uber.

  • Grace Adams says:

    Like what everyone else said, Uber is a life-saver. This Uber Eats delivery would also be very helpful especially to me who don’t usually go out to lunch because i’m always busy at work. Well done, Uber!

  • Patricia Cummins says:

    Uber is a prime service that we commuters rely upon for our everyday destination and travels. With Uber Eats, life gets even much easier and calmer. I love this idea!

  • Shikin says:

    Would love to try using Uber soon. There are times when my mind’s quite pre-occupied that I cannot function properly and don’t remember directions or places to go to, and that’s the time Uber really helps me with my travels.

  • Angelique says:

    I don’t really trust myself when I drive because there’s always a lot going on in my mind, with the court cases I’m always occupied with. So Uber really comes in handy and trust me, I’ve never been more at ease and relax when I let someone drive me around.

  • Raiza V. says:

    Thanks for sharing your experience with Uber. I have long wanted to try the service ever since my car broke multiple times. I’m tired of having it fixed everytime. Uber may just be the best answer to my predicament!

  • Danielle says:

    I am not good with directions, I hate rush driving too. So I always keep my phone handy and Uber is topmost app that I always use. Uber is so useful.

  • Desiree Lynch says:

    Can I also mention that the Uber drivers I’ve encountered are all kind, great mannered, joyful and mostly gorgeous, if I may say so.. 🙂

  • Ellie Matthews says:

    Oh let me tell you, Uber is a life saver. It’s aways been my saving grace whenever I need to go somewhere on my own with just an address in mind but I don’t really know the location. So yes, Uber really makes life easier.

  • Jenni Clark says:

    Uber is everybody’s friend! I’m glad I discovered about Uber when I really needed to go somewhere I wasn’t familiar with. And with my mad driving skills, I wouldn’t trust myself behind the wheels either.

  • Rhonda Shane says:

    My first experience with Uber was everything I’ve ever hoped for. The drive to and fro my destination was a breeze and the driver was very friendly and accommodating. I think I am going to use their services more than ever, especially now that my car has been broken!

  • Sarah Montiel says:

    Heidi, that fringe skirt is definitely gorgeous! You are so beautiful at all angles! A big fan here!

  • Lovelee Hussain says:

    I use Uber too whenever I need to go somewhere I am not familiar with. The Uber drivers I have encountered are so far, so good, never had bad experience ever!

  • Christine says:

    I haven’t gotten my driver’s license, so I use Uber every day. Really great service!

  • Bernice says:

    Everyone I know use Uber car services nowadays.. I do too!

  • Penelope says:

    I don’t know how many times I’ve rode Uber but I can tell you that it’s been really a life saver! Countless meetings out of my vicinity and my car still getting fixed so Uber is the right and only solution to my problem. Yes!

  • Shaneeza R. says:

    I also use Uber occasionally although I have my own car. There are times when I am already tired that I just want to sit back and relax and let someone else drive for me so I won’t worry about traffic jams or parking spaces and such. Uber has tremendously helped me in more ways than one.

  • Gabrielle says:

    My husband and I were travelling to LA a few months back, we were afraid to book a cab at the risk of them not showing up or coming late and us missing our flight. So I contacted Uber and they answered the phone right away, they had reasonable price, and the lady on the phone was very polite and helpful in suggesting a time to schedule our pickup. It was the most hassle-free ride I’ve been on with Uber. I will, fo sure, go to them for future transportation needs.
