Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?
A. It was many moons ago after I had got laid off from my second job. I was nineteen and a half years old while I was collecting unemployment and my uncle got tired of me being home all day. So he told me about a cab company that just opened. I went to check it out and Met the owner who was a very nice man. from that day on he took me on as if I was his own son. He mentored me and taught me a lot about the business.
Q. What types of customers have you worked with?
A. I am the jack of the trade. While driving a cab/ limousine I was also going to school for auto technician since I wanted to be a mechanical engineer, I thought this was the closest I can be to it. Really if I had my way I'd rather be a motivational speaker or street preacher. Because I enjoy speaking to people.
Q. Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
A. I picked up a lady and it turns out that she was a model. It was four o' clock in the afternoon and she was running to catch a plane because the breast implant she had was leaking and she thought she was going to die if she didn't make it on time. I was able to get her to her destination on time but she couldn't pay me because I didn't except credit cards at that time. So I decided to tell her that it's not a big deal, I would do it for her anytime because we as human being are suppose to care for one another.
Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
A. Do not go for the cheep way out. Most of the times its not the best way.
Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to
professionals about their project?
A. I wish my customers knew that folks that drive for a living are actually smart people too; for God has created them all. I remember thew Bible says, "the rich has more to say because they control the money which is power." And it seems to be because they have some sort of wisdom. But unfortunately it's all foolishness and vanity.
