The flexible hours allow me to earn extra income around my full-time job that does not offer flexible scheduling. I live in one of the most expensive regions in the country and I’m raising 2 kids whose mother doesn’t earn a lot. So, having this driving job with my own scheduling has been crucial to maintaining our already meager lifestyle. Without this income, I’d be forced to relocate away from family and friends. The flexibility allows me the time to spend with my kids, to pick up and drop off at school or take care of them if they become ill. This would be more difficult with a fixed schedule.
