This Florida teacher quit his job in 2017 to deliver groceries and makes $100,000 a year

Nick Davis

Ed Hennessey was a Florida teacher, but quit teaching in 2017 to deliver groceries for Shipt. Shipt is a grocery delivery service that is very popular and similar to Instacart.

Ed told Wesh, a television station that he never earned more than $50,000 a year as a teacher, struggled to make ends meet to support his family, and always had a second job. He started working for Shipt in 2015 part-time, but a couple of years later realized he might be able to make more money delivering groceries than teaching. So he quit teaching.

Ed made over $100,000 a year delivering groceries, which was over double his salary from teaching. He is putting in 50 to 60 hours a week but likes the flexibility and the quality of being your own boss that Shipt offers.

According to Shipt, their drivers can earn up to $22 per hour. Also offering flexibility with the driver's allowing them to make their schedule. Another great perk is they let their shoppers keep the tips they receive. If people would like to become a shopper for Shipt, all they need to do is apply and interview. Also, people must meet the Requirements listed below:

At least 18 years of age.

1. Valid U.S. driver's license and auto insurance.

2. A reliable vehicle, 1997 or newer.

3. Knowledge of produce selection.

4. Ability to lift 40 pounds.

5. iPhone (iOS 10 or newer) or Android (5.1 or newer) smartphone.
