The next part of my plan is still somewhat in flux. Now, I could then return to school to get my degree in Computer Technology with a focus on Networking, which would mean I could in theory host the websites I would build, and offer some computer repair services. I could also return to school to get a degree in Business Administration, with a focus either in Marketing or Accounting. Accounting, would probably be the most beneficial in the sense that if my business fails, I could likely find a job as a accountant somewhere. So there is that.
Depending on which degree I choose to pursue after getting my Graphic Arts degree, would really give me the best idea for how long it’ll take to get my business beyond the planning stages. Having looked at some of the prices being charged for website design, I could make a pretty good living even if I charge a little less than the average for a small company or freelance designer. So, that could be a lucrative opportunity. Hosting, isn’t as lucrative but would certainly provide some recurring income for my business if I choose to go that route. I think with good planning, and working to master my chosen craft I could be a huge success.
I think it’s a good plan, once I finalize a few of the details. In the meantime, I’m just hoping for the best in my educational pursuits. With all of that said, the song of the day is “Alternative Girlfriend” by Barenaked Ladies.
