Thread: Setting up a business

    I think he should just stick to what he's got going at the moment until he's had more experience. For someone who's still in school, a computer 'business' on top of that isn't the greatest idea. Odd jobs are good though, because you build up a nice base of 'clients', who will naturally spread the word about you (based on your work). So if you are as good as you think, then you'll reap the rewards.

    Jedi said it well. If you didn't want my honest opinion, then why start this thread? I'm usually brutally honest in my posts, so take it or leave it.

    Hey nice thought but i'm going to have to side with Beffy and JA. I'm 20 and I work as a IT Technican. I want to start my own business aswell however I feel I'm too young to start with it all. I'm doing odd jobs aswell. I've just finished building a computer for a guy but I still have my day job. I've done a lot of research it takes time and money. My Step Dad started a consultancy business 4 years ago. It became hugely successful very quickly but I remember the time before that he was trying to start the company whilist working for a network consultancy group. Before the whole thing went off we had no money and he had no spare time.

    Of your doing it has a spare time thing with people that just want stuff repaired then go for it :hammer: :hammer: :)

    However if you seriously want this thing to kick off and you want to build custom PC's you'll need a lot of baclground preparation and time. I don't want to be nasty but I think your too young for it to be a proper gig. In the long run it will be more trouble than its worth.

    If you start off with a few odd jobs - sticking memory in upgrading software then maybe when you leave school and have built up savings then think aboout doing it properly with all the bells and whistles.

    Sure, age isn't everything. Plenty of 15-year-olds know a hell of a lot more about computers than many 40-year-olds.

    But it works the other way, too. Who are you going to trust more when dealing with an expensive piece of equipment? The 40-year-old with experience or someone whose voice is still breaking? Maybe you do know all your stuff better than your elder local dealers (I doubt it, but maybe). Even if so, you've got to face the reality of the situation - who a consumer is going to choose.

    And if you are a multi-millionaire in "15yrsd", then you can come back and laugh at us all.

    Lol, yeah do that :laugh: :laugh:

    In all seriousness AMD_Man there is no doubt in anyones mind that you know your stuff. We're not saying you can't do it and that you'll fail horribly. All we saying is the most likely customer your going to have is a family man/women who has kids. Some of which may even be your age. When I was that age I was seriously bad with money (If I had any ( infact I still am just look at my credit card bill :o )) Their going to think my 13 year old just blew her birthday money on something she doesn't want now am I really going to intrust this kid with my hard earned money?

    I'm really trying not to mean here but you have to be cruel to be kind. None of the guys here want to see you screw up if they did they wouldn't bother posting their advice. Unfortuantly in the business world thats how stuff goes down. People that age don't take anyone they consider too young seriously.

    I've had people turn round to me and not taken me seriously and I'm a IT Techinican with a MCSE and a CCNA under my belt they've gone to my boss and said is there anyone with more experience. Trust me it sucks when people do that. You don't want people doing that to you. You'll just think why should I bother trying to help people.

    I hope i do this, and become successful, and in 15yrsd am a Muilti-Millionaire
    It would excellent if you did but don't start slagging people off when they're trying to help
