I'm passionate about technology and want to pursue a career in IT. In 2017 I wanted to start my own company to provide IT support to small businesses that cant afford to buy PC's and or maintain them. However this was halted with the murder of my father and later that year my divorce.
2018 then came around and the plans were moved aside as my mother was diagnosed with cancer.
So two years later I'm back and ready to take this on.
How do I want to do this you ask? Let me give you a quick idea:
Simple, most of the people and loads of PC enthusiasts upgrades their PC parts, cases and some even stick the older stuff in a box at the back of their cupboards, so my idea behind this is having the account, is to advertise and sell items at a very reasonable price and or offer those with the old parts, cases and so forth a discount to an extent if they bring their unwanted items in or I collect/ship and use these then to assist these smaller people to build a PC on which they can perform their daily work on.
Now it may sound like I lost my marbles, but I’ve dealt with a number of small businesses (not back yard companies) whom I’ve seen the equipment they use, and it's impossible to run a business to its potential using the equipment they do. If they can't afford to buy a computer I will build the PC and place on premises with a rental agreement, this could the be broken down to PC rental, backups off site networking and the list goes on. Above all, I would like to offer them an opportunity to learn skills, which can be arranged with fellow members of the community to possibly give training on packages such as MS Office, accountancy, computer literacy to name a few.
Also, with the offered service of providing off site backups, it will save them in the event of theft, damage to equipment or worst case scenario when it's a one man business (with employees) that they can continue to operate if someone steps to the plate.
