You might want to change your profession after hearing how much money this Uber driver earns in a year…

Sam Lyon, an uber driver from Oregon, decided to challenge himself to see if he could earn $100,000 a year as an Uber driver…

He set his goal after an IT job he applied for fell through due to the pandemic and wanted to know if he could earn enough to live as a driver with Uber Eats.

He set up the thirty-day “Uber Eats Challenge” on TikTok, and decided to give it a go himself…

Now, this might sound impossible, but he actually made pretty good headway with his challenge.

According to Don’t Waste Your Money, Lyon told The Penny Hoarder: “I wanted to see what was possible and how much you can make given the time frame that these delivery apps give you.

“Can you make a wage that pays for a house, pays for a car, that can [amount to] what most people would consider an actual career?”

He documented his journey on TikTok, working twelve hours a day, 7 days a week…

And amazingly, after just the first day, Lyon was close to earning his daily goal of $300 a day. On day 6, he finally smashed his target, earning $366!

At the end of his challenge, Lyon revealed to his followers that he managed to earn a whopping $8,357. Although $2,988 of his wage were tips.

If he was to carry on working those twelve-hour days, then Lyon would be on track for earning the $100,000 he set out for. However, his health would probably suffer for it.

At the end of the day, money isn’t everything.
