As a 22 year old with not much to do lately I've been thinking about selling my services. Sucky sucky 5 dollar!? Haha not quite those services. Within my circle of friends, family, friend's of friends, etc people come to me to fix more or less all their computer problems. I see people in Circuit City or someplace like that spending $1200 on a shitty Dell computer where for $800 I could order the parts and assemble a computer built to smoothly run the latest games, etc. Anyway I had an idea to advertise some of my services, to either build or repair computers. The unique part of my services are that I'd offer to go to them and fix it on the spot, or for those uncomfortable having someone come to their home they could always bring it to me. I met someone the other day who took their computer to a local shop and paid $300 for some guy to spend 30 minutes reinstalling Windows. Theres a few legal questions though, do I technically need permits to do this and need to be an official business? Or could I just freelance my services like I want to. I know I can't use the same Windows XP disc to reinstall all the computer I work on, but I know where I can buy bulk OEM discs that are very inexpensive. At this point in my life I don't care to have an actual business, I just want to start making a little money for doing what I've been doing for free for many years now. If I could properly advertise my services I'm sure I'd get some interested people, because retail stores like Bestbuy, Circuit City, etc are so overpriced, along with the fees local computer shops charge for their services. LPSG is not only the home to the biggest dicks on the internet but some of the brightest people as well. Help me out people, how should I go about this?
