Happy Women’s History Month!

emojis_animatedAs big supporters of diversity in all forms, we at TaskRabbit would love to take this opportunity to celebrate the women who have madeand continue to makeour platform the incredible community of independent contractors that it is today.

We understand that it is extremely important and valuable to have a variety of people, thoughts, and ideas within our community. Here at TaskRabbit HQ, we’re proud to have women on every team and in every department. In fact, women comprise approximately 55% of staff and leadership positions at TaskRabbit, not to mention our extraordinary CEO, Stacy Brown-Philpot.

But our plans go beyond just building a diverse full-time workforce at TaskRabbit headquarters. Under Stacy’s leadership, TaskRabbit is committed to promoting a diverse Tasker community in all cities to ensure we reflect the communities that we serve. Our diversity is part of what makes TaskRabbit so special, and we’re proud to have women tasking in every one of our categories.

To help celebrate Women’s History Month, here are just a few examples of our amazing female Taskers talking about how they kick butt on TaskRabbit every day.

 

Tanisha W., New Yorktanisha

Tell us a little about yourself.
I’m a single mom of two, college graduate, completing my masters and currently restructuring my life’s story.

What motivated you to start Tasking?
The motivation stemmed from my being unemployed at the time and needing to supplement my unemployment benefits.

What has TaskRabbit enabled you to achieve in your personal life?
TaskRabbit has enabled me to relieve stress. I’ve had a total transformation of mindset when it comes to my earning potential on and off the platform. I have tried other platforms, but TaskRabbit has been my most consistent and lucrative little side hustle.

What has TaskRabbit enabled you to achieve in your professional life?
It’s allowed me to craft my schedule, set an income goal, learn, and apply scalability in the cleaning and janitorial arena. My work on the TaskRabbit platform has allowed me to tap into skills I’d previously only seen as chores or hobbies, thus creating an incubator for unintended market research. I’ve found a niche that I did not know that I could monetize without TaskRabbit.

Savannah B., San Francisco Bay AreaSavannah

Tell us a little about yourself.
I’m a wife and mom to two school-age children. I enjoy spending my free time with my family doing outdoor activities like hiking and biking. When I’m home I like to snuggle up on the couch and read books and geek out on my favorite TV shows!

What motivated you to start Tasking?
I was looking for an opportunity to make some extra money for my family once my children were in school full time. I have a lot of skills that I have acquired from years of being a homemaker that translate perfectly into tasking for others. I also wanted a gig that afforded flexible hours to accommodate my kid’s school schedules!

What has TaskRabbit enabled you to achieve in your personal life?
TaskRabbit has given me a huge confidence boost, especially when clients are happy with the job I did for them! Whenever I receive a notification from the tasker app that I received a great review it makes my day!

What has TaskRabbit enabled you to achieve in your professional life?
I love getting to know Clients better. TaskRabbit enables me to network and connect with others whom I may never have had the opportunity to meet otherwise!

Ariel W., Seattle Ariel

Tell us a little about yourself.
I’m a single mom, part-time Tasker, and full-time hero.

What motivated you to start Tasking?
I needed a little extra money for paying bills.

What has TaskRabbit enabled you to achieve in your personal life?
The freedom to pursue jobs that I enjoy, and the freedom to be at home with my children when they need me.

What has TaskRabbit enabled you to achieve in your professional life?
TaskRabbit is a great way to earn some extra money and really make a difference in other people’s lives. One of my favorite tasks was assembling a kitchenette for a family with a little girl the same age as my daughter. She was so excited to watch it come together, and she even helped out a bit!

Susan S., Portland susan

Tell us a little about yourself.
I’m an outdoorsy, active, retired professional. I’m also a single parent to my wonderful adopted daughter, who surprises me every day!

What motivated you to start Tasking?
I wanted to supplement my income before retirement and then continue working after retirement. TaskRabbit is the perfect tool for this!

What has TaskRabbit enabled you to achieve in your personal life?
Thanks to TaskRabbit, I have a much greater understanding of working mothers with small children. There is such a need for help in this area. They don’t often ask for help when they need it but instead wait until it’s gifted to them. Then, after realizing the ease of having a few extra hands, they seek help. It’s so rewarding to be that person!

What has TaskRabbit enabled you to achieve in your professional life?
TaskRabbit is a great way to meet people and network. It’s especially humbling and exciting to learn from others whose skill sets are the opposite of your own.

Karina S., New York karina

Tell us a little about yourself.
I am a single mother of a 9-year-old boy and an 8-month-old baby girl. I’m also a makeup artist.

What motivated you to start Tasking?
I was sick of my job, and a friend told me about this groovy company he was working with (TaskRabbit), so I quit my job and joined!

What has TaskRabbit enabled you to achieve in your personal life?
It has enabled me to have full control of my schedule, so I’m able to spend quality time with my kids while also earning some extra money when I have a babysitter handy.

What has TaskRabbit enabled you to achieve in your professional life?
TaskRabbit has given me experience in things I’ve never done before! Bartending, marketing, working as an executive assistant–You name it! With this experience under my belt, I feel as if the sky’s the limit.

    1. @StormyAPerez Absolutely! We’re excited to be expanding our content to all of our Taskers – stay tuned!

  1. Very nice. This is great stuff and glad to see TR celebrating this history. Nice to know a little about these follow taskers as well as other taskers in our community which is diverse and solid.

  2. Very inspiring stories I am happy to be part of such successful family like Taskrabbit
    Thanks to all the staff.

  3. I wonder why TR still has not made the move from ‘Handyman’ to ‘Handyperson’? I am a qualified electrician and passionate lifelong multi skilled DIYer, female with 2 teenage boys trying to teach them not to fall for stereotypes…
    Also, I had one mean client out of my first 2 jobs giving me a negative feedback, so since I’m down to 50% rating with no chance of responding to the unjustified thumbs down…
    I have not have a request since, i may as well go to another agency. Shame, I had quite high hopes when my friend recommended you. Sylvia
