Interesting people, places, conversations, experiences & insights brought to you by a guy, who took some time off from corporate enterprise sales to take an Uber sabbatical... and that sabbatical continues 4 years later! ...Please note: Unless a person of fame, I do change the names and all vital particulars that might identify the people I write about (for their privacy).

I picked up a ghost…

May 4, 2015

As you sit there shaking your head No, No, No… All I can say is Yes, Yes Yes! I did actually pick up a ghost today… ghost writer that is, named Mercer,  Mercer moved up here recently having just graduated from College last year… he is a California boy.  I picked him up in Weston (the states’ wealthiest town and dropped him off at one of his clients in Sherborn (another really wealthy town).  This young lad must be doing something right.

As we drove through some really beautiful landscape we chatted about many things… but foremost his young writing career.  Right now Mercer is ghost writing for a professor who teaches at Berklee College of Music who is writing about her career in Ballet.  He is writing for a professor who is a “sleep doctor”… on a text book… be careful if you read this one… you might be lulled to sleep.  AND… Mercer is writing for an assistant dean of academics at Harvard… not too shabby.  Mercer does not want to do this forever and would like to find a career in writing that bares his own name.  I thought this was quite interesting as I have never met a ghost writer before.  Mercer says the main benefit here is that he is learning about things he would never have imagined he would be interested in, AND he finds it all quite interesting indeed!

Long story short: I started with Lyft (4) years ago as a sabbatical from enterprise B2B sales. I did not like Lyft for some of their policies and the way they ran their business so, I switched to Uber which I prefer for many reasons. I have found driving for Uber in Boston to be one of the most engaging gigs I have ever experienced.
