i'm wanting to start my own business. i've been flip-flopping over whether to build computers & sell them. or just repair computers. or both. sometimes i think repairing computers would be easier & cheaper to get off the ground. the problem with that is i don't know enough about computers to charge people to repair them. i think a+ or some other cert would be beneficial. i have a bachelor's degree, but not in computers. (i'm 36, married with a child) is it worth it to get a degree? if i do go back to school, it will have to be part-time. i think if i did sell computers, that it would help me earn more money if i repaired them also. not that it's all about the money, but when you're starting your own business you need all the help you can get. also, computer repairs could be a source of recurring income.
i've been reading the charges from geek squad. i've saved myself a lot of money. formatting drives, installing software & hardware. that's the easy stuff. i can do that.
