    You start at what you're good at. Figure out what you're good at, see if there's a target market, and then target the market.

    It's a vague answer, and I don't really want to give it to you because you're probably legitimately confused and looking for help, but it's all I have.

    So...what are you good at?

    lolz yea.. and you got a point. true that.. i should look at where I'm good at.

    im good on creating concepts on websites, im good on creating ideas how to make things for marketing stuff but not those from the big guns. im good on graphic ideas too for what the market demands something like that. been into this industry i think long enough i learned stuff.

    what do you do bruh?

    I'm primarily a programmer. Fewer people in the industry, easier to find clients, and generally more rewarding for me personally.

    The "concept" thing might be harder for you. You may very well be good at it. You probably are. I haven't seen what you do, but I don't have reason to doubt you. The problem is that it's an industry where a lot of people are good at it. Basic supply and demand...lots of supply = lower paying. That's going to be your big challenge.

    oh programmer, cool.

    yeah creatives. there are lots of it and theyre pretty good... reeeally good. but the supply doesn't always meets the demand, there are lots of pretty good suppliers out there but couldn't grasp the concept that you "supply", you "create for the demands".. you know what i mean right? i have experience this actually. we couldn't settle with the supplier because they insist on what they thought - not on what we demand. anyway, point is yes less pay because lots of supply. but we should know where to look at.

    i don't mean to offend anyone. just my thought.

    I think you are taking supply and demand a little too literal. What he is saying is in the field you say you are great at is overpopulated and because of that you will see it harder to get jobs. Basically you are in a situation where your skills are the same as many others. This lowers the demand for your skill.

    Consider a bottle of water. The price will be less expensive somewhere that there is lots of it. At the same time that bottle of water is way more valuable if you were in a desert.

    You are essentially a bottle of water in an area where there is tons of other bottles of water and i mean that as no disrespect.
