We live in a world where people build their influence over other people. Millions of people have their own micro-community. By creating free content more or less entertaining A lot of influencers started to realize that people will pay for created content.
That’s not only working for influencers but also people with expertise in their specific field like fitness, education, business, health, beauty, and more.

What’s important to say is it’s not only connected with the online business but can work for the traditional business as well.
Doesn’t matter if you sell access to your training videos or 1-hour weekly personal training in your client location.
You still want people to pay you regularly.
Albert Einstein once said “Compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world. He who understands it earns it; he who doesn't, pays it”
That’s all about membership payments, you build a solid income by adding to a pool more and more people that pay you smaller amounts.
