GoShare in the News
GoShare connects delivery professionals with people and businesses who need help moving and delivering large items on demand.
Why is your company the best option to solve the problem you're solving?
GoShare stands out from other companies thanks to our easy to use apps and on demand scheduling. Customers can get their items delivered on their own time, even within one hour. Using GoShare means no longer waiting days for delivery or being stuck at home for multi-hour delivery windows.
What nuggets of info make you interesting? Why do people care about what you're doing?
Our initial partnership with Costco began with only a few warehouses in San Diego. Customers were delighted to get their purchases home same day and the delivery professionals enjoyed earning good money while helping deliver items within their community. GoShare was built around the idea of local people using their resources to help each other and this partnership was a critical affirmation of it. GoShare wouldn't be where it is today without the experiences gained from the early days of operating in San Diego. We're proud to enable local vehicle owners to earn money while lending a helping hand to those who need a friend with a truck.
What else do you want us to know?

What one book, podcast, newsletter, etc. do you recommend to other entrepreneurs? Why?
Dale Carnegie’s classic, How to Win Friends and Influence People, is just as relevant and insightful today as when it was first published in 1936. For a new entrepreneur like myself, Carnegie’s work is a guidebook for creating strong relationships, making good first impressions, becoming a better conversationalist, and other key skills that are necessary for building new business partnerships and finding investors. An entrepreneur must be able to not only support their idea through securing partnerships and investments, but they must be able to lead their company and team. Many young entrepreneurs have limited leadership experience, and Carnegie’s chapter, “Be a Leader: How to Change People Without Giving Offense or Arousing Resentment,” offers key advice to inspiring a team, valuing input, and offering critique without offending.
What inspired you to start/run this company?
The idea for GoShare came to me after several bad truck rental experiences. I found myself wishing there was a simpler solution. As a fan of sharing economy companies, I wondered if a similar business model and technology could be used to connect truck owners with individuals like myself that needed a truck on demand. I pictured an app that allows individuals to connect and share resources, such as trucks, in their local communities. Since that solution didn’t exist, I decided to make one.
