This week, we’re excited to speak with Sabrina Evangelista. She’s a leadership and business professional in the Bay Area.
Tell us about your business. What does a typical day look like for you?
My firm helps and educates families with solutions and a strategy to obtain their financial security. I travel to various cities performing community outreaches, seminars, workshops, and one-on-one appointments.
How many miles do you drive in a typical week? Where do you drive as part of your job?
The mileage can vary week to week depending on where I meet with clients. On average, I can put in about 200-300 miles per week.
What’s changed since you started using MileIQ?
Being able to properly calculate the mileage that I designate for business. This has helped with expenses while filing my taxes.
What’s your top tip for staying on top of your miles/classifying your drives?
Before starting my car, I make it a habit to cradle my phone, and let MileIQ do it’s magic for me. Also, just as you would carve out time every day to check your social media accounts or emails, I would suggest taking a few minutes at the end of your day to go back and classify all my drives. Get it done and you’ll be ready to tackle the next day.
What’s the biggest challenge you face running your business, and how do you address it?
Finding passionate and driven individuals to work on my team. I’m always recruiting.
What do you enjoy the most about the kind of work you do?
It gives me joy giving back to the community, working with a distinguished team of like-minded professionals. I also enjoy having more control of my time to spend it with my family.
What tip would you share with other business owners?
Keep it simple. Allow yourself more time to concentrate on other things by utilizing helpful apps as MileIQ to streamline your daily activity.
When not working, what do you like to do?
I usually spend lots of time with my family doing fun things and traveling.
Where can people learn more about your business?
