Early in 2020, Sam Lyon’s new job fell through because of a coronavirus hiring freeze.
That’s when Lyon decided to create what he calls the “Uber Eats Challenge.”
The Salem, Oregon, resident committed to delivering food for 12 hours per day every day in June, aiming for a pace that would amount to $100,000 a year. He tracked his progress on the social media platform TikTok.
By the end of the month, he had made 795 deliveries and driven nearly 5,000 miles. Check out this video for a full breakdown of how much money he earned and to see what he learned from the experience.
