Curiosity opens opportunities

“Don’t be afraid to venture into a new subject and learn on your own.” – Haig Dickson

I make instructional tutorial videos to help people resolve common computer issues such as: “How to remove Malware and Adware”; “How to make Windows 10 run blazingly fast”; and “How to avoid getting infected by Malware and Spyware.”

I learned how to do this by watching other people on YouTube. From there, I experimented by infecting my own computer with different types of Malware, Adware and Spyware. I then used different anti-Malware programs and software to determine which ones were most effective.

I decided to make my own instructional videos in order to help people who were in my position. I really like the fact that I’m helping people resolve issues on their own. I feel proud of what I’ve learned and the response I’ve received in numbers of views and positive comments.

I now have over 2 million views, over 12,000 subscribers and have monetized my videos by allowing YouTube to put advertising in them. By doing this I have already earned over $200 and rising.

I have recently started uploading my weather videos with hopes of incorporating my love and passion for weather and storm chasing.

If I could give any advice to others about self-employment, it would be to look on the internet for guidance and don’t be afraid to venture into a new subject and learn on your own.
