Uber Technologies Inc. is an American international transportation network company headquartered in San Francisco, California. The company develops, markets and operates the Uber mobile app, which allows consumers with smartphones to submit a trip request which is then routed to Uber drivers who use their own cars. By May 28, 2015, the service was available in 58 countries and 300 cities worldwide. Since Uber's launch, several other companies have copied its business model, a trend that has come to be referred to as "Uberification".
Uber was founded as "UberCab" by Travis Kalanick and Garrett Camp in 2009 and the app was released the following June. Beginning in 2012, Uber expanded internationally. In 2014, it experimented with carpooling features and made other updates. By mid-2015, Uber was estimated to be worth $50B.
Join us as we discuss this phenomenon and tell the stories that come with being in an Uber!
Feeling like your life is out of balance? Too much work on your plate? Too many demands from your family? No time to do it all—let alone do it well or steal an hour of "you time"?
If you've answered yes to any of those questions, then the latest data won't surprise you. According to a recent survey from the Work and Family Institute, 60 percent of working parents feel considerable conflict between work responsibilities and time spent at home. And a recent survey by the Pew Research Center found the majority of full-time working moms would like to trade in their current situation for a part-time position. What's more, the same number of stay-at-home moms said they'd like to give up a bit of the carpooling and PTA for a part-time job as well. And, of course, plenty of new moms or moms-to-be are searching for ways to stay home full-time with their babies.
On this episode of the ::ANSWERS:: show, we will discuss tips on how to create a work/life balance.
ENVISION THIS: It’s time to question your belief systems, to know that you don’t need to have all the answers, and that one size does NOT fit all!
Our guest, Betsy Chasse, says, “As I stand here knee deep in manure, finding my way to reclaiming myself, I’m going to share my version of finding your own capacity to live your life to your highest potential, even while cleaning up cat vomit, carpooling, and waiting in line at the post office.” She identifies herself first and foremost as a mom, “with two wonderful kids, Elora and Max. They are the light of my life and my world revolves around them! We love to garden, paint, create and cause as much of a rumpus as we can together.”
She is probably more familiar to many of our listeners as co-creator of the film, credited with co-writing, co-directing and producing. What The Bleep Do We Know?!
Her new book, Tipping Sacred Cows, and our interview with her have to do with all she has learned and unlearned since that achievement: “It’s time to tip some sacred cows about what we think we know about spirituality, reality, and ourselves. It’s time to get liberated from the fences we’ve put up and frolic once again through the pasture of life, realizing that stepping in cow shit is not always such a bad thing. That happiness is not a destination but a state of mind and you’re already there if you’re willing to just do a little work to uncover your true bliss, your happy mojo, that creamy cream that exists in the middle of you!” Betsy has some wonderful insights on finding your own spiritual path in today's hectic world.
