How To Earn Money by Doing Smartphone, Tablet and Mobile Device Repair

  When I saw this class offered I must admit I was surprised…When I began the journey into the IT world of 2015 I was thinking this would be about personal computers, servers, networks, programming, social media, the internet etc., etc. I didn’t think Mobile Device Repair. However, I was interested straight away. The obvious question then that the reader must be asking is why. But we will get around to that later. First I must tell you I am no writer. I have never taken a writing class in my life, and English was my least favorite subject in High School! When Mr Vadim Mikhailenko informed the class that this would be a 1700 to 2000-word project, (a daunting task for a 61 year-old student) I was, to say the least, not looking forward to it. But here I am at 2:50 on a Sunday morning actually doing it! As I said before I am not a writer but I am a reader. An avid reader, a lifelong avid reader. My favorite writers were 19th century Russians. Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy, Turgenev, Pushkin, Gogol, just to name a few. To me all other literature pales in comparison.

Independence First is a 501C3 Non-Profit Organization.  We are located in the Walkers Point area of Milwaukee WI. We specialize in helping people with disabilities. The CRP department receives donated computers from business, government and the community and we give them out to low income people with disabilities. We mainly receive Dell, HP, Lenovo, and other computers with windows operating systems. These include XP, Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8. Every now and then we get some old Apple products. We receive about 90% desktops and 10% laptops. We also take all types of monitors, keyboards, and of course the indispensable mouse. We do not accept CRT monitors. By doing this everyone wins. Business and government have a place to dispose of their computer systems and members of the community can bring it to us rather than just dumping it on the street. This is important because there are many toxic chemicals inside these products. Lead mercury and many others. Chemicals that are not good for the environment.   So you may wonder, how it is done. Well, it goes like this. Many donations are dropped off to us, but sometimes especially with large donations we send out a truck to pick them up. By the way this is a tax write off for the contributors.   Now comes the refurbishing process. By the way some of us...
