Like many Taskers, Aubrey came to TaskRabbit as a way to earn money on her own terms. No more punching in the time clock or feeling trapped in dark offices when she’d rather be outside enjoying nature.
What Aubrey discovered through TaskRabbit was a new, flexible reality that gave her the benefit of starting a business supported by TaskRabbit, the time back to spend doing what she loves (spending time outdoors), and the additional reward of seeing the impact she makes on others’ lives every day.
Keep reading to hear more about her story and why she hasn’t looked back since becoming a Tasker.
What did you do before becoming a Tasker?
I moved around a bit—restaurant management to auto and medical insurance office work.
What was your primary reason for joining TaskRabbit?
I knew a work life that involved punching the time clock and a static Monday to Friday wasn’t for me. I was inspired by my boyfriend who tasked for a few years full-time and was prospering. I wanted to be my own boss and have autonomy over the type of work I did and my personal schedule, so I dove into TaskRabbit and haven’t looked back!
What is your best tasking memory?
Helping a woman organize her entire home ahead of her wedding as a long-overdue surprise gift to her fiancé. We worked over several sessions, and every room in the home was completely transformed. She was amazed by how quickly it was done, and her (now) husband was brought to tears with joy at the result!
How has TaskRabbit impacted your life?
It has completely changed my life! All those years I was seemingly trapped in restaurants or offices, I’d daydream of getting out of the daily grind and working on my own terms. TaskRabbit has given me the freedom to work for myself without having to make a huge capital investment to create a business from the ground up.
How do you market yourself to Clients?
I’m friendly and personable in my profile and pictures, and I always ask for feedback and referrals from my Clients to their friends to help me build my business.
What’s your top ice-breaker question to Clients?
What inspired you to reach out to TaskRabbit for help with this task?
What’s your best advice for other Taskers?
You get out of it what you put into it! Treat tasking like a serious business by providing excellent customer service and quality work, and Clients will appreciate (and reward!) your efforts.
What’s your hidden talent?
Singing! Most people don’t know it about me because I’m very shy, but I can belt out tunes like a rockstar 😎. I even won a singing competition on my vacation last year, which took a lot of courage to perform on stage in front of a few thousand people!
What do you do to unwind?
Hiking and nature trips are my favorite ways to clear my head and find balance. Bingeing TV is also great on days when I just don’t want to move 😁.
We second Aubrey’s advice that you get out of tasking what you put into it, and are happy to see her reaping the rewards of her hard work! And sometimes that means bingeing TV all day on a Tuesday—and when you’re a Tasker, that’s perfectly okay.
