I lived in San Antonio, Texas from age 7-10, and this past summer I went back to an old friend’s wedding. While visiting got to hang out with Sean, one of my close friends from my days in Texas.
In catching up with him, I found out that over the past two years he has developed his own computer repair service. Ladies and gentlemen, this is not your average “I reset my neighbors wireless router” repair service. This kid has clientele all over the city, gets away with charging $50/hour, and drives a 2007 Ford Mustang.
Sean uses both a personal website and Facebook Page to market his business. He has over a dozen personal reviews on his own personal site attesting to his greatness. This guy has no employees and doesn’t contract out any of his advertising because he does it all himself.
As a result of his hard work and successful marketing, Sean is working 10-20 hours a week and making around $35000/year while playing in a Christian rock band that’s about to get signed to a major record label. Pretty impressive what a 21 year old with no college experience can do when he puts his mind to something.
