‘At HiyaCar, we actually don’t have goals, we don’t have targets. We’ll have a direction of doing good things, but not a target’.
Often on this podcast, we’ll talk to people about the goals they set for themselves – both professionally and personally – and what about them as a person makes achieving those goals possible. Rob Larmour, and his company HiyaCar, is a different kettle of fish.
HiyaCar is a company that has no targets, no financial goals, and got its £2.2 million of financial backing from crowd-sourcing. Founded by Rob and his business partner Graeme in 2016, HiyaCar is described as the ‘Airbnb of cars’. It aims to make car ownership more economical and environmentally friendly through peer-to-peer car sharing.
Rob’s leadership style is calm and collected. He understands that having a ‘number’ to hit won’t motivate his team. He focuses on doing the right thing, over pushing people to achieve arbitrary figures.
This episode is unusual, inspiring, and thought-provoking. We can’t wait for you to hear it.
