I received the following email from a YFNCG reader. I’ll call her Sally. Sally wants to earn some extra money for college (she’s an Information Systems major) by repairing computers. She goes on to say:
I have been cleaning my friends and families computers for years now and just haven’t charged. I am emailing to get some tips about how I should go about this and how to present it to people. I am not yet A+ certified (because of cost) but have taken a detailed class on it. I just want to tell people that I am not certified but can do those basic things. Also what are your ideas about advertising and prices for repair and cleaning. I am going to continue this when I get to school as well so basically any help that you can give me for home and for school would be great.
