Firstly I'd like to say I think you are on the right track. When I started off, I got so entrenched in the shiny objects that I could supposedly resell, that I forgot about my own skillset. The best thing you can do, especially when starting, is solve people's problems and get paid for it through your service. 

You can then evolve into other services, teams, products etc from there. Well, that's my experience ;)
