Like many, I was a broke student a few years ago and I was new to in the country. I did not have a network to leverage and get a job, I really struggled for a long time working under the minimum wage. With almost cero opportunities I decided to join the gig economy / crowdsourced jobs and I started to deliver things. During that time I experienced the opportunity and the benefits that companies like Postmates and Uber provide like flexible schedules and the ease to earn money but I also discovered how these companies profit taking advantage of "cheap labor" I indeed believe that these companies provide a much-needed source of income for people but they can treat them better, that is why I wanted to create a business that put people first. I as well came up with the idea for this company when I had the opportunity to work at an agency and one day I connected the dots, but that story I will tell below.
