The short answer is that I mostly do IT stuff for a small .com retailer. I build the computers, purchase the networking, add GUI-based features to the database, and make sure it all works all the time. I literally live in the office, and am on-call 24x7.

But I'm also a farmer, pizza chef, construction worker, data analyst, marketing consultant, ditch digger, therapist, house keeper, and any other role circumstance has made favorable for me to be in.

How?

I live and work at income sharing community\\worker-owned cooperative.

Twenty people collectively run an heirloom vegetable seed business that makes most of its sales through a web store.

There is a 42 hour/week labor quota, and many things count as labor that are traditionally overlooked (for example, cooking, car maintenance, childcare, driving to the grocery store, and washing dishes are all valued just as highly as answering telephones for customer support, creating new content for our web page, fixing computer problems, or developing the layout and content for our annual printed catalog).

Different people specialize in different areas, but anyone and everyone might help with labor intensive tasks such as harvest, and everyone including visitors and guests are expected to sign up for tasks on a weekly domestic chores rota.

Income is distributed equally or according to need. As the IT person, I made the case that I needed a powerful computer that could potentially host several VM remote desktop connections, so the collective agreed to let me build one with shared funds.

I find the consensus decision making (think "democratic workplace"), egalitarian access to resources, and preservation of genetic diversity in our food supply . . . satisfying feels like an understatement . . . I'm jubilant to have the opportunity to support myself this way.

Well right now im a student studying my A levels in a UK college, and moving on to university next year , though I spend nearly every hour possible outside college working at a local compumputer repair shop.

It is the best job ever tbh, I get to work on old computers, and more importantly new ones I get my hands on testing out new hardware, when upgrading clients PCs, installed a new double loop WC today

Though along with the fun stuff there the less boring stuff like posting items on ebay, testing the less boring components such as RAM I hate vpc -.-, and THE most boring thing cataloging the websites on directories, the joys of copying and pasting.

Retired live on a fixed income.
I fix computers to make extra income.
Used the income to buy computer parts.
The outcome is the same no income.

Those kind of things add up over time.
This this this!

I've learned how to slowly become a jack of all trades. Watch your friends and learn from them. I hate cars so much but because I was sick of spending thousands on repairs and replacements, I just asked them, they helped me out at the cost of dinner and my help, and I've learned to do quite a bit!

You can learn computers on your own, too. Just need guinea pigs, even customers. Don't ever think you need schooling for doing your own small tech support.
