“The best thing about Turo is that it’s allowed me to learn what it’s like to build and scale a business. There are a lot of things I didn’t know before, even with having a few side hustles.”

“We didn’t want it to be too time intensive because we both have full time jobs, and also, we want it to be a good return on our investment… The profits are great for us — we can pay off a Jeep a year!”

How a former auto consultant

made over $50,000 on Turo

In 2018, Elan left his 9-5 as a consultant in the automotive industry and reinvested that energy into Turo. He started small by listing a 2011 Ford Fiesta, and after a lucrative first couple months, he figured the risk-to-reward ratio was compelling enough to add seven more cars over the next two years. Turo has become one of many revenue streams Elan uses to diversify his income and strive towards financial independence.
