Hi guys, how are you all doing? Although I have a small question which ugh... I'm struggling with! And it was like this for the past 3 days. I end up thinking about it in the shower, or till 4am in my bed, or while I'm watching TV. My problem is this... I am 19, I will be going for my 3rd year of college. By the time I'm 30, 35, 40 I REALLY hope to own my company and retire (don't we all?) But I also want a rewarding company, and an interesting career to go with it. First I want thinking of going with WordPress web design. I find the customers and talk to them, get them so sign a website with me for a minimum of $500. Out of those 500, $300 will go for the guy to code it from .PSD to WordPress and $200 to me for doing the template. I hate coding so I can't do all of it. The template will take me 2 hours TOPS! So $100/hour is pretty good... but then I started to do a little bit of math to see how many sites I need to make in order to make AT LEAST $5000/month. Turns out I need to make 25 websites a month in order to make $5000/month, which is horrible! Because there is no way that for 10 years of my life I can make template after template with only 7 days of rest. So pretty fast that idea was canned. I mean sure there are exceptions.. I know Flash, and I can (and did) Flash websites. They go for a lot more, they go for around $1000 - $3000/site but that means I need to create 5 sites a month, meaning that I need to start on a new site every 5-6 days, which is also crazy! Flash is a bit complicated and also has a lot of programming. I also do very well in Photoshop. Especially photo manipulation. Like changing hair, eyes, faces, making the photos look good, etc. But its REALLY hard to find a rewarding job at it, and then starting your own company. I also design magazines and brochures, but in 5 years there will be less and less of that because everyone is moving on to the internet and less and less people want paper. I mean the newspaper companies are in crisis! So I'm thinking between exhibit design & package design. I think package design MIGHT be a bit borning, so I'm leaning towards exhibit design. Learning AutoCad & VectorWorks in about 10 months and then looking for a job as a "Jr. Exhibit Designer" Then slowly getting to know the ins and outs of the company, then perhaps start getting my own customers or something. What do you guys think?
