Hi! My name is Chadá (pronounced Sha-Day) Johnson and I created The Essential Driver to share my experience as a rideshare driver with Uber driving in the Los Angeles area. I started driving for Uber in late 2016 when it became clear that I was never going to reach my financial goals if I didn’t add an additional source of income. I have a great full-time job that I enjoy, but with the rise in housing costs and my debt steadily growing something had to be done. So far I am really enjoying it and can’t believe I didn’t start sooner! I hope you enjoy the site and that you will use my referral link to get started driving today. Let me know how it goes!
