Black America needs its own IT infrastructure. One that is either traditional or cloud. I am not talking about one that the government builds for us. I am talking about one that we build ourselves. More and better computers are being released. There is a great increase in the number of things getting connected to a network. So the idea of an IT infrastructure is something Black America should consider. This is a task for us to plan and execute. Look around as everything becomes digital. From schooling to how you make money. An IT infrastructure can be considered if your business wants to profit or not. Cyberspace is real and it’s called the internet. Just think about who you want to maintain your digital space.
I don’t want to sound like to much of a computer nerd reason I don’t get into computer talk. I’m sure nobody is interested in Linux terminal and BASH commands. That if you type in the command “gedit helloworld.sh” you can start scripting. When the text editor does pop up you simply type “#!/bash/bin” and the next line write “echo “Hello World!” “. This will create your first script. All you got to do now is save and exit. Locate and change into the dictionary that file is in. Once in you type in “chmod +x helloworld.sh” into the terminal and your script will be ready to be used with the command “./helloworld.sh. I’m sure it’s an error or two somewhere in here.
I need a good plan that can have me making money within a month from now. A business plan is always a good idea. Like the amount of work I can do with my company but I just don’t have a plan. Having a plan is part of being a strategist. Since I started this whole business I have not had a set plan. I’m emphasizing this because time and money are not on my side at the moment and I need them to be on my side. I got to have a sense that this business is flowing in the right direction. The plan is to make money through my company.
I know that I am in the cybersecurity field. So I need a business plan around that. I should start doing remote IT work for people. The plan would be to service and maintenance computers in my area. I’m sure it’s several people who lack cyber protection or are looking to protect their online presence. So I should work around that. I should cold-call and visit businesses around my neighborhood to see if they are looking for a local computer guy to help with their IT problems. I do have a background in troubleshooting.
Also, part of my plan should be to get my first computer certification soon so I can add value. The value would come from having the certificate to prove that I do what I say I do. It’s like my authentication in the field. Also, I should not be afraid to market myself. The promotion of my business is up to me. That goes for sales too. I can’t get any customers if I’m not out here selling my services to as many people as possible.
Truth is that the business thing isn’t difficult at all. I got to do better if I want this business to move forward. The way I am now is not going to cut it. I keep having to remind myself that the life I want will not be made by me if I am mediocre, lazy, or timid. That this business requires more from me. Probably a lot more than I think I have in me.
Up watching some Lebron James motivation videos. Arguably one of the greatest athlete alive at the moment. The mentally of Lebron James is highly respected in my book. This is a man who strive for greatness every damn day. Lebron James wants to be the greatest basketball player in the world, or he is working on being the greatest basketball player he can be. This man is a top tier person. Watching these videos because I’m elevating my focus and mindset. I can’t do what Lebron James does on the basketball court but I can do it with the computers.
This is where I go into my goals and aspirations. I got to give my all every single day like Lebron James. The man a general and a gentleman on and off the court. You can alway catch The King leading and taking charge. He is alway showing why he is the most valuable player. I aim to be the same way with computers. Like Lebron I want to show that fears and limits are only an illusion. That you can put any obstacle, challenges, or wall in front of me and I’ll get through. My championships would be me get awards for my contributions to computer science and selling computer software and hardware for millions of dollars, if not billions. I know is that it all starts in the mind. I’m here develop my King Mentallly like Lebron James and strive for greatness. Lebron said it best, “You can’t be afraid to fail it’s the only way you succeed.”
I know nothing about computers and the internet for somebody that has been using both for over fifteen years. Coming to an understanding of that now that I’m working on my computer company. The computer on average hasn’t been used to maximum capacity by most people that use it. Don’t quote me for this is an opinion. I’m just saying if I lock in for a few months and master the art of computing that a put me at an advantage. Also, it would help me to figure what skills would be of value to me. Not that I trust everything I see on Instagram but a post had that coders are making about 10K a month. I know HTML, C, and Python programming at a beginner level. Can’t be taking to long on making this cyber money. I need my money right away and it’s getting hard to wait. Time to lock in and master the art of computing.
