On April 12th, 2016, AskforTask CEO, Muneeb Mushtaq appeared on The Todd Shapiro show (Sirius XM CH 168) for an interview!
Todd Shapiro has a knack for making his guests feel comfortable and completely open up, and the interview with Muneeb was no different. Although Todd had never used AskforTask before, he seemed very intrigued by the idea of a task sharing economy platform, especially when he found out that he could get someone to assemble his IKEA furniture, which seems to be the bane of everyone’s existence.
Connecting People Through Technology
Going back to our parent’s and grandparent’s generation, everything had a very localized approach. Support for your neighbor was very common and neighborhoods were home to many more communities Although platforms like messenger apps were developed in order to better connect you with your friends and family, they actually reduced our ability to connect on a personal level. People have started to drift apart and become more isolated. AskforTask was borne from this desire to utilize and harness the immense power of technology to bring people back together and reconnect them face-to-face.
AskforTask is in the business of matching two types of people: those who are looking to free up some of their time, and those who have extra time on their hands and would like to help those in their neighborhood while making extra cash.
What is the glue that really holds this whole system together? Trust. Through AskforTask’s new Tasker onboarding system, the Taskers are interviewed, fully trained and vetted. This is how the Asker community can feel safe and comfortable with them in their own homes.
In this segment, Muneeb discusses how you no longer have to be tied to a traditional 9 – 5 job. You can find stimulating and exciting ways to make money on a schedule that works for you by engaging with the community that you are in.
