I started because I became unemployed and couldn't find a job. I wasn't in a very nice situation for a while, but it turned out to be the best thing that ever happened.
This!!!! x 10000000000!
I used to work 2 miserable low paying jobs until I decided I had enough of being afraid to start and focus on my computer repair business. I work from home and in the past 2 years I've made more than I ever did in 5 years at those 2 miserable jobs. Now I'm slowly moving to small businesses and I can't believe how much potential there's now.
I love fixing computer related problems, it is my passion since I was 13. The fact that it pays well is just icing on the cake. If you love it too then I hope you keep at it and wish the the best.
