    Im 18 yrs old in usa working an hvac and plumbing job at about 2500$ a month, i am expectong a daughter soon with my now fiancè.so ive been lurking around the forum for about a year now and today at work i created a rough jot of notes and basically the threads i am most inspired by are the franklin hatchett method besides the "free product" detail. I would be marking up my products. And i am also inspired by social media marketing as i have seen products such as mvmt watches be funded strictly from indiegogo and grew an organic customer base through social media and email lists. My goal would be to combine the two by dropshipping products from china such as bracelets etc, and markup the prices. First i would grow my audience on social media with fashion blogs then launch a product on a seperate account. Or insteads of following the franklin hatchett method i could continue to grow my social media empire strictly and create partnerships with companies for marketing and sell shoutouts or build accounts for them. Not sure yet. I would also like to incorporate some type of seo strategy or pay for online reputation. I understand it is a bit confusing but i am stuck between picking one method or the other or strictly going with one. I am mostly interested in these methods because they are newbie friendly and have large profit margins if you put in the time money and effort. Here are my notes from today. Please provide feedback. Thanks
    P.s. My goal is to launch and brand my own product such as watches and shoes and clothes etc., for low production costs but i do not know of any good manufactures, if you could provide suggestions for that too thatd be great
