Purpose, Experience, and Income all Within Minutes on Your Phone

Twenty-five years ago, I was a student at the University of Cincinnati. I remember calling for a cab in preparation for a fun night out on the town.  The cab company said, “We’ll be there in an hour.”  We waited for the cab.

I met my wife when I was 28.  It took years of visiting churches, bars, etc., to find her.  I actually met her at a Bengals – Browns game.  My dad pointed out a sharp group of girls three rows in front of us.  A couple of drinks later, I was sitting in the row asking for her number.

Not long ago, if we were craving our favorite food of choice, we had to go to the restaurant to satisfy that craving.

As my 10-year-old daughter would say, “Those were the old days.”

Today, people around the world are arranging transportation within minutes on their phone.  Swiping left and right, people find love within minutes on their phones.  People could also have their favorite food delivered for dinner within minutes on their phones.

What if there was an app that got you volunteering within minutes? Earning real-life work experience in your field of choice within minutes?  Earning flexible income around your busy schedule within minutes?
