What can someone like myself (a student between 16 - 20) who has a passion for technology do to play a role in the IT industry today?

At the moment, it seems the best work I can find is by offering computer support, but I often miss out on a lot of business due to my age. Many people don’t think a sixteen year old like myself can be capable of doing a decent computer related job, and go to a huge company where they often get ripped off. This is a shame because I have many customers that have in fact benefited from the services I have to offer, such as simple computer advice and web design,etc.

Does anyone of a similar age do any computer related jobs?

What are your opinions on this topic?

Thanks everyone Big Smile
