Not everyone has the skills to address and resolve their computer issues

Computers are used everywhere today and finding a home without one may be quite difficult. But not everyone has the skills they need to solve their computer issues on their own.

If you own a computer but lack training or experience with it, this does not mean you have to give up the many conveniences and comforts that technology brings with it.

Instead of going back to the outdated method of doing things like paying your bills, communicating with relatives and friends or even catching up on news, just get someone with the right skills to help you.

Get help with your computer issues, by offering accommodation and meals

HOSTS

There are many people who would like to make their lives easier by using a computer to handle their recurring tasks like bill payments, banking or ticket booking

One big obstacle that prevents them from doing so is their lack of familiarity with technology. If you fall into this category, we have the answer for your technology problems.

Hosting an individual with computer prowess gives you access to someone who can help you learn the basics and practice your skills under careful supervision.

Wins from this experience

The most significant advantage of signing up as a host is that you have someone you can depend on to get your computer issues resolved quickly and efficiently. The individual is on-call whenever you need help and that is a big advantage because you do not need to wait for a professional to pay you a visit. And you are actually helping someone achieve their goals, even as you get the specific kind of help you need.
