Hey business people, I need your help if you may.

Since I quitted social media and college two years ago, I had been working at my sister's bakery as an all-around graphic designer. It was a need and not a choice. My basics are covered here (shelter, food, wi-fi, electricity, etc.) in exchange of my time. It's as if I'm actually working for my needs, and yeah, working sucks.
-------------------------------------

Here are my domains:

Computer geek
Accounting student
Graphic design

------------------------------

And here are my ideas:

  1. Creating an app for bakers that will help them in their processes such as listing orders, scheduling of delivery, etc.
  2. Helping accounting students by:
    • Creating video explainers
    • Creating PDFs
    • Selling other merch such as
      • Calculator cases
      • Book-hardening services
  3. Printshop that focuses on
    • Tarpaulins (Birthday party backgrounds)
    • Sticker labels for food packaging.
------------------------------
I am proud to be:
  1. Fast learner - I can learn by myself
  2. Organized - Systematic
  3. Problem-solver - Innovator
  4. Coachable - I know how to sift through criticisms
------------------------------
I'm currently searching for a job in Upwork so that I could depend on myself and eventually leave this house. If I leave, I'll have more time for myself and my ideas. Also, I'm posting my works on Facebook Marketplace where I have customers every once in a while (albeit measly).

Any feedback is much appreciated

What do you think?

I don't have much to add, as I'm in a similar place as you. But I would recommended finding anyone who's willing to pay you for solving their problem (Reach out to your potential customers who'd be helped with your ideas) and tailor the experience for them.

Did you see a need here? Or are you just doing something you can do?

Can you explain the app for bakers a bit more? Did you see a need in your sister's bakery that made you think "that could be doe easier"?

Yes, both. I had been seeing a need: she's having a hard time processing orders, communicating them to other people in charge, collecting customer data, etc.

Also, I don't know how to code...yet.

She's doing everything manually, pen and paper. The app I visualize can:

* Makes listing orders faster
* Collect customer data
* Communicate orders to personnel
* Issue digital receipts
* Schedule orders
