i am a newbie and my first language is not English so my excuses if my grammar is not correct, but i wanted to know why all of you have chosen to start this journey? And what drives you to keep doing it?
For me it was sharing knowledge and making income. It is still these things 5 years later. I didn't at first necessarily think of it as something to make a full time living just that if I am putting in time I need to make a certain amount to live on and I only have a limited number of hours in my day, so there was a hope I would make enough income to at least cover the hours it takes me so that I don't have to put those hours in for free on top of a full time job in my personal time. Obviously most things involve investment so you invest time ,but hope you get your time free to do what you want with it further down the road rather than working 60 hours plus commuting and in your free time working 40 hours and then never having time for loved ones or your own wellbeing...
I have been able to achieve these on Udemy, where I get to share knowledge and make a living while being able to focus on my wellbeing and loved ones. This motivates me to keep doing it and to help others achieve the same.
All the best
