The very first self-made earning that got me my first brand new SLR camera is from my graphic design talents as a freelance artist. But what hindered me to pursue freelancing my skills are: 1) the bank fees that preyed on my small business account, 2) the fast upgrading of expensive graphic software, and 3) dishonest clients who took the finished product and ran away from my reasonable fees.
Aside from graphics, I enjoy doing other things like craft work and the love for photography; and I am dreaming of upgrading to the best professional camera and macro/telephoto lenses with its matching gadgets that I do not yet own. To enroll myself to becoming more confident and professional in this field that I truly love to do would be a dream come true.
With having the right tools to what I love to do, I would prosper more and could earn from it. :)
