The creative, accumulative change will push your mind beyond critical thinking to sort out complex issues into finding relevant solutions that are made simple at their core, Challenging your mind and having fun at the same time at work is the purest form of staying young!
What I’m Doing Now
My latest dedicated journey is a new company I’ve founded TRYP RIDES that will enable independent driver owners to earn more money. Our Revolutionary ride hailing company will disrupt the disruptors with this new SaaS business model and it’s new rider app that allows a person to earn cash back by sharing the app with as many people as they like. Earn cash back on each ride that a person takes on your app that you shared with them. The user of the app can also share the app and earn cash back too! This business model has never been seen or done in the ride share industry before!
