A few helpful things that you may find useful.
I was once in your shoes.
Full time job I didn't like.
And I got out.
So here goes:
A lot of time. And effort. And hard work.
It may not pay off in a massive, 7 figure buy out one day.
In fact, it likely won't.
But most of those I know who started when I did (2013) and stuck with it are 100% self employed
Why would anyone buy something from you (assuming you're not a DS-er)?
You have to establish yourself first.
Content, content, content - build up a fan base and let people get to know you.
I coached friends for free and wrote 2 articles every week for 5 straight months.
Oh, and this next one is good, too.....
"How can I teach others to get in better shape? What struggles do they have? What struggles did I have? How can I relate to them and help them?"
Value, value, value, value, value.
Hadn't made a dime yet - it was 2 months into my blog.
I asked them if they wanted 100% FREE coaching in exchange for a testimonial at the end of the 12 weeks.
No money exchanged.
Just good will.
But I was PASSIONATE about helping others.
And I spoke just like them.
Because I WAS just like them.
A normal dad with 2 kids who went from fat to fit while working a full time job.
Key point: I was RELATABLE, nice, helpful, and knowledgeable.
I didn't act like I knew everything.
Because I DIDN'T!
I see so many 25 year olds jump on the internet and think they know everything.
These kids haven't even had an actual career, and they're positioning themselves as experts.
Within a few weeks, I had my first real client.
$149 for a 12 week program.
But you know what?
THAT is the power of the internet.
Provide value first.
The following and the money will come later.
99% of those who benefit from following me pay me nothing.
And people forget that.
I've had over 3k people take my free challenges.
95% of them have never paid me a thing.
What are YOU doing to provide value?
You can't just sell, sell, sell, sell, if you're created zero good will.
Never paid me a cent.
She received guides, tutorials, workout plans, articles, advice, etc.
Watched my FB Live videos.
And received kindness and answers.
You better believe it.
But you have to dish it out to receive it in return.
It's called reciprocity.
Go read "The Go Giver" by @BobBurg.
It's one of the first business books I ever read and it goes into this in detail.
And if that compensation is nothing - most of the time - you will be amazed by what will happen to you.
Have a prosperous 2019, fam.
Each of these items I COULD sell for $10 - 50 apiece.
You can have them.
4 different guides - one is legit a 45 page complete ebook with training, nutrition, and guidelines.
It runs on Facebook (sorry Twitter, come up with groups and I'll make one for here, lol).

Out of every 100 people that grabs this free shit, MAYBE 4-5 will reciprocate.
The way it freaking SHOULD be.
