Niche Websites- I learned this at Techie Youth today!

I learned about what niche websites are, and the tools needed to create them! A niche website is a website that is informational and is basically the websites that people search on a daily basis to find out whatever they need for the topic they're researching. When creating a website, one extremely important factor is a keyword. A keyword is the main word(s) people tend to search, and it especially helps the creator of the website because the more you use the word/phrase, the more likely the chance your website can show up higher. In addition, try to make the article as specific as possible. The reader wants a certain piece of information, and if you talk about that one piece, the reader can recommend your work and word can spread. Money from this doesn't come in quick, though. It's usually 6 months before you actually earn anything, plus it is very time consuming. That is also why the creators tend to hire ghostwriters or contributors, so that they have the writing which will then allow them to be able to edit, focus on the appearance of the website, etc.

Artificial Intelligence- I learned this at Techie Youth today!

I learned that one of the key necessities you have to understand if you want to be in AI (artificial intelligence) is algorithm. An algorithm is basically the steps in doing something. For example, me making a peanut butter sandwich is an algorithm because of the steps I'm taking while creating it. On a different note, to get a job in AI, you need experience! Creating your own code or anything like this can be considered as such. You just need to make something that helps the employers recognize your skills. Artificial Intelligence is a great job to consider one day!

Music Production- I learned this at Techie Youth today!

I learned that composing music does not need fancy equipment to create a hit song. Famous artists have used materials as simple as a laptop to create music that can be especially complex. Music also has different layers to it. Harmonies help the main melody and supports it, usually making the song more powerful. Besides this, it is especially tricky to get into the music industry. Anyone can create music, true, but getting your composition noticed by a big brand/company is difficult. You have to have connections and be aware of things such as micro/macro-economics, etc. This is also a job that can probably work better as a side, but can still be worth it!

Different areas of writing- I learned this at Techie Youth today!

I learned that each area of writing has a type of criteria that needs to be followed if you would like to turn writing into a career. With writing as a job, you cannot expect to earn a lot of money quickly, or even at all. While it can be a good side job, it takes up a lot of time and effort for very little return. It is also necessary to have good relations especially if you're involved in writing magazines, news articles, books, etc. Agents will definitely be on the list of criteria needed. To elaborate, without an agent, you have no connections with any high respected company. This makes everything the more difficult, considering the competition in this field of work. In addition, you should always be prepared for rejection. If one article or other piece of writing doesn't work out, learn from the mistakes and create a better one. It's a risky job that may not be worth it, but taking the risk can also be for the better.

How to start a business- I learned this at Techie Youth today!

I learned that an entrepreneur can be almost anyone with a creative idea that wishes to expand it, but starting a business needs a lot more than just an idea. In order to start a business, you need to know how exactly you plan to make money. For example, if I say if I get a lot of customers, I will make a huge profit that is not good enough. I need to know how I am going to get those customers. I learned that it is very important that you have a partner when you start a business, ideally 3 people. This is because one person cannot handle doing everything and the business is doomed to fail without someone to collaborate with. I also learned that it is important to have multiple sources of income in case one of them fails. Speaking of which, you should have an exit strategy in case the business does fail, like selling it to a bigger company or corporation. Then you move on to the next project. Even though you may have wasted a lot of time and effort, you can learn from it.
