17: Learn the Secret to Earning 6 Figures as a Gig Driver with Adam Strum

Freddy D:  Raised in Brooklyn, New York, Adam Strum went to Brooklyn College, studied law and marketing, worked for Verizon Communications for 20 years, and then left to work on helping people resolve financial Cris. Adam retired from debt relief in 2020 because of health related issues and began working the gig economy, now self employed, driving for various companies such as Doordash, Uber, Eats, Spark, and Labcorp.

And after learning for about two years, I went off on my own and opened several companies, two of which I sold for a profit and one of which I am actually closing out shortly because gig work has taken over and my income from gig work has exceeded my income from legal work.

Freddy D: That’s crazy. So when you think about that, that’s just not heard of. So what is it that you’re doing different in gig work, and how did the career working in customer service at Verizon contribute to you being successful in gig work?
