Episode 28: An alternative to Uber or Lyft - be a driver without a "passenger!"

Blog Description:
For most people, their vehicle is considered a "liability." But you can turn that liability into an asset when you deliver the perfect passenger for Curri: Construction & Industrial Supplies. ALL types of vehicles are welcome and needed on the Curri platform. Remember, "supplies" come in all shapes and sizes! No people, no food. Plus, Curri boasts higher pay than Uber, Lyft, and Amazon. Listen to CEO, Matt Lafferty, talk about the opportunity at Curri.

And so that was just our whole mindset through this whole thing. And now we're solving one of the biggest inefficiencies in the US and in the world.
