1. Your success story
Success or victory story might be the answer, what are those challenges you have passed through and you were able to overcome, some people are also going through the same thing, this is a knowledge you possess that you can make money from.
For example, your health status can be what is going to make you the money, let say you are infected with COVID-19 and you were able to cire yourself of the virus, then you can provide a service to people who need such service and get money from it.

These days almost everyone has one or two certificates, the one you possess can make you money.
when you can’t secure a government or private jobs with your degrees or training, looking deeply into what you can achieve with your certificates and knowing how you can turn your knowledge into money using the certificates you have will be the best option for you.
You can start a consultancy firm related to what you have certificates on.
For example, someone who has a certificate on computer science can start an online freelance company.
Over the years what you have been doing, would have been part of you, many people gathered experience from their jobs, after holding a particular position for long, they become an expert in the field.
Use your experience to start making money today, if you have one.
You must have learned a particular skill or more during your lifetime, these skills can be transfer to others and make money while doing so.
