i am curious. many posters seem to believe that they are running a small business as opposed to being an employee. does anyone have their "business" for sale now? how much are you asking and what am i getting for the money.

if you are not selling your "business", perhaps you could refer me to the website(s) where others have their "business" listed.

What are u Paying?
Uber is no different than selling shit on eBay or amazon, where you have to have inventory ( your car ) shipping packing expenses ( gas wear and tear maintenance) amazons cut (15% for most items)
But unlike uber, if you fail with one business on amazon you can get a new ein and be back in. Business
Uber goes off your SSN and you only get one shot
But for some ****ing reason we have not figured out other than assuming most Uber drivers are dumbasses and don't look at their expenses,
Hence the small business description

I call myself an independent contractor.
I'm even on linkedin per my lawyers request.
He want me to be part of his network.
He said it's a corporation.

How To Calculate Costs As An Uber Driver:
https://uberpeople.net/xfa-blog-entry/how-to-calculate-costs-as-an-uber-driver.23/

I did the math and my lawyer agrees. 89% of the miles on my car are work related.
This already gives me a $15982.99 deduction and will go up over the next 5 months.
That takes car of all the gas, brakes, washes, frebreeze, tires, and everything else in this wishful thinking blog.
(they are called blogs for a reason) No one else will publish it.

And, with 30885 miles over 18 months, I am averaging less than 100 miles per day. (someone asked)

so are you selling your business? where can i find the listing? what is your asking price? what are your financials?

Yes UberProphet? should email these thoughts to UberLawsuit attorneys. They can use every tool in the persuasive shed that we can find to convince a jury. Never take your opponent for granted. My friend said he learned in the service that everyone has a plan for the enemy, until they meet the enemy! :)

Small business that averages $7.51 per customer, I keep records and have a spreadsheet. I don't know if this in an increasing number or decreasing. I'll let you know when I have the time to work on it. My phone rang and I have a delivery. The first one of the night is always a minimum of 28.5. 25 gas and 3.5 for close delivery. 4.5 in City.

So youre under the impression that a business does not actually exist until it is publicly listed for sale...interesting.
