Do you hate working inconvenient hours at low wages? Ever get frustrated with your boss? Maybe self-employment is the answer. It sure works well for me!
I'm the proud owner of A Media, a video editing business. That means I make videos by compiling photos, video clips and music onto DVDs. My customers enjoy seeing their memories of different occasions preserved this way.
Watch me turn a truckload of pictures into a DVD!
I'm 16-years-old, and self-employment is very good to me.
It all started in eighth grade. My school was a test site for Sonic Foundry, a video production software design company. It gave the school free software so the teachers and students could provide feedback.
This gift transformed our basic, boring computer course into a fun and educational video-editing experience.
After making some videos for school I decided to start my own private video service. I've been doing it ever since.
Starting a business is often very hard. Fortunately, I had a lot of support from my family when I started A Media or else it would never have happened.
Surprisingly, it didn't take long to begin and get organized. After some initial advertising, I got a large project and many more followed. I turned a profit after completing my first or second project.
