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 Uber has been a god-send to me ever since I started using it in 2012. The Uber 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.

    I’d like to try that Uber Eats app soon. I think that’s a very great idea for career woman who are always on the go but have no time to prepare for lunch.. I’m saying this because I’m guilty as charged. lol

    I’ve always counted on Uber to take me to places I don’t know how to get to. Been a rider since 2015!

    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!
