If you are visiting here after a bit of an absence, you may find a lack of content or Latin gibberish on the screen. I am still rebuilding.
But what do you think about the new look? Better than the old, blah grey screen, right?
But that’s Not Why You Are HERE.
I am linking this Facebook post because my best girl and I found ourselves in this very pickle when we bought our previous house. Hmmm, house or car…house or car…what to do?
We ended up buying the car first. The mortgage company then required us to roll our car loan into the mortgage loan. I had mixed feelings about this. Basically we ended up with $20,000 less equitity in the house. This chicken did come back to roost when we sold.
At the same time, it could be said that my car payment dropped to just a few dollars a month. Like I said…mixed feelings.
But I will ask Ken to comment here about the pros and cons of that part of the experience.
I’d love to drum up new business. But how can I do that and…
…Finish my book?
…Be at my deli counter?
…Do an full-time job?
…Take care of kids?
…Maintain my niche blog?
…Do all the other paperwork my business requires?
Am I in your wheelhouse here?

Entrepre-Nutty was created to provide ideas, reviews and hard information help you make changes to your income and lifestyle. A few months ago, with that mission in mind, I decided to look into ride share companies (Uber and Lyft to start) to give my readers more options. I am actually driving for a few to give you first-hand intel. What I’ve discovered is pretty amazing. I’ll have much more to say about driver apps in other articles.
The point I’ll hammer home in every article is this: If you don’t treat ride share as a business, even a very small part-time business, you will come away frustrated and tired. And you’ll beat your car up for nothing. To help you build that business I will provide reviews of available tools.
Here’s a big one. Increase your rides by up to 30%!
Shortly after I signed up for Uber, I decided to give Lyft a try as well. My only concern was getting an Uber and Lyft call simultaneously. Naturally, one minute after running both apps together, I got a Lyft and Uber ping within two seconds of each other. I had to dump the Uber call. I don’t like doing this. (At the time it was a serious issue with the ride share companies. It seems to be less of an issue for them now, but I will tell you in a separate article why you still don’t want to be turning down rides.)
Anyhoo…in my research about ride share I came across an app that toggles automatically between the two major ride share companies along with a few other driver apps like Postmate Fleet. More are on the way and I have volunteered to be a part of a beta test to add them to the lineup.
The company is called Mystro. (Free trial available here) Their app is a simple and effective tool. When a call comes in, Mystro notifies you. You have the option of having it come through on auto-accept, as I do, or you can manually accept the ride. Once accepted, other driver apps are automatically shut down. When you complete the ride, the others are brought back online automatically.
At the “encouragement” of others talking about aggressive ride share strategies, I have experimented twice in four months with turning offMystro and putting Uber andLyft on together. BAM! Both times I had to dump one ride request for another. I will not be doing that anymore.
Caution: There have been occasions when Mystro has not turned off one of the applications. Fortunately, that is rare and has not been when I was getting two at once. I even got a notification of the failure. I simply went to the app that was not in use and turned it off. In both cases Mystro turned it back on again when the ride in question ended.
There are other apps out there that claim to be what Mystro is, but they are not. On is called Upshift. This is a heavy app. One reviewer complained of his phone running hot while on Upshift. It has a lot of neat features that track deductions and miles, but it has a constant display that tends to be in the way of other apps and requires much more hands-on operation between rides. It also, as far as I know right now, does not automatically toggle opposing apps on and off like Mystro does.
To get the functions you NEED for tracking and driving with multiple apps at one time, I recommend you go with Mystro as your toggling device and Stride for ride share to track miles and expenses. I will get into detail about Stride in my next post. For now, just know that it is a lightweight but robust app that runs quietly in the background. It will shock you with the money you’ll save on your taxes! The app is free.
