Although I will have my Bachelors Degree in Human Resource Management in April 2018, I am obsessed with technology – I always have been. It’s such a strong passion of mine that I am always reading about improved technology from all sides of innovation and watching annual events in relation to Apple, Samsung and Microsoft new releases.
Every device has its positives and negatives about them. In other words, I personally don’t think that there is a perfected device out there, but there is a device perfect for everyone based on an individual need. This is the beauty of technology. Choices. Unlike your 5th grade math class, there is no right answer.
I have always been the go-to guy from family and friends when they need advice about fixing an issue and recommending user software or apps for mobile and stationary devices. Even people that I haven’t heard from in quite a while send me a message on Facebook looking for advice – and I don’t mind it, but I’m not your regular personal tech guru without a fee either.
This is when I started vigorintel.com. I became aware that there was a market for my skills – even if I only wanted to do it Part Time. I have always loved blogging, and one day I decided to teach myself Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, Premiere Pro (in the process of learning), After Effects (in the process of learning) and Muse. On top of years of my technical knowledge, this gave me a new incorporated service platform to offer people. An all in one stop shop for digital design, tech support, creative writing and web design.
All I did was buy a domain and web hosting services. Although you can use simple and easy sites like WordPress (I use it for blogging, like this one), I found it more challenging and personalized to create my own sites from scratch. After all, there isn’t just one smart device for everyone, why should anything else be?
Now mind you, I’m almost done with my BS degree in Human Resource Management, and I love helping people and business. But this doesn’t mean I have to neglect my other interests and expertise.
Once you figure out exactly what you love, you can do amazing things – and possibly make a little extra cash in the process.
Never give on your passions.
