I love the flexibility of being an independent contractor
Hi my name is Raekisha and I’m a food delivery driver. I started driving part-time for extra income. I have an autistic teen daughter who works in modeling and acting. I have to chaperone her on set because she is a minor, so when she books a job, which is sometimes far in between, I work to make money for bills, food and rent. The cost of living is very high where I live. I love the flexibility of being an independent contractor because it allows me to care of my daughter and her special needs while making extra money needed to keep a roof over our heads and food in our bellies. I'm grateful for the freedom to work around my secondary schedule. Without this extra income, I could possibly lose my apartment. Thank you for listening to my story.
