Can You Help Me Out With the "Tween Tech Guy" Challenge?

Tween Tech Guy

A few weeks ago, my husband and I got into a discussion with our children about starting businesses for themselves. We both started our own "businesses" at a young age and thought this would be a great way to begin teaching them the value of a dollar and how to make money on your own.

The discussion went surprisingly well. My daughter's business idea was easy and straight forward. She is launching a pet sitting and dog walking service in our neighborhood. My son's was a little more complex. He wants to provide IT services. He's 10, so you can see there are just a few challenges with this one. Child labor laws, going into strangers homes... No thank you.

So, we decided that he could launch an tech advice column, through the supervised environment of my blog and "practice" until he is 16. This would give him a few years to build up his knowledge base and his customer service and communication skills. The pay off for him is that it counts towards his writing grade for home school. Now I need some questions for him to answer.

I know, I know... I can hear what you are thinking through the ethers? Why would you want advice from a 10 year old? Well, I am not making big promises, but for the last year, he has served as the full time IT guy in our house. I have a partitioned hard drive with Mac and Windows, so he knows both systems. He installs software and hardware, optimizes computers, cleans up hard drives, finds and compares software, ap's and other services. In some cases, he has done a better job than the professionals we hired.

So, would someone out there be brave enough to send me a few questions you want answered? If he doesn't already know the answer off the top of his head, he will do some research for you and get back to you with a recomendation.

What do you have to lose?

P.S. Before applying any of his advice, you might want to get a second opinion. :)

P.P. S. He has already responded to several questions and I think he is giving pretty good advice. Check it out.

Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious  - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive with incredible detection ability, in fact increased smell sensitivity can save lives. Just ask your local gas company – pregnant…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
