No kidding, I ran across an article at Money.com about a teacher that quit his job and now makes $100,000 a year delivering groceries. 45 year old Ed Hennessey lives in Orlando and has developed quite an income as a personal grocery shopper. He works as an independent contractor for Shipt, a membership based grocery delivery service owned by Target. Admittedly, Hennessey puts in a lot of hours for his money (the article says he works 60 hours a week), but who would have thought that you could make $100,000 a year grocery shopping!
Full Time Or Part Time
One aspect of this I really love is the flexible hours (and the option to work full time or part time). Also, the requirements are minimal, including the following:
- At least 18 years of age.
- Valid U.S. driver's license and auto insurance.
- A reliable vehicle, 1997 or newer.
- Knowledge of produce selection.
- Insulated cooler bags.
- Ability to lift 40 pounds.
- iPhone (iOS 10 or newer) or Android (5.1 or newer) smartphone.
How Much Can You Earn?
I am sure the earnings vary widely like they do with opportunities like Uber, but the Shipt website says drivers average $22 per hour.
