There are many ways to monetize your skills. Write down activities that you enjoy doing, that motivate you, that you naturally find yourself learning more about, that energize you. Then do some research and find out how others have made a living out of these activities.
When looking for a career, it's important to know what you value a d what your priorities for happiness are. What makes you happy- free time, a flexible schedule, a structured schedule, lots of guidance, lots of independence, a large salary, moving around, staying in one place, working with your hands, intellectual work, working from home, working in an office, working with people, working on your own? Once you've thought more about what kind and structure of work you would enjoy, then you can start researching what jobs suit your own needs for financial, physical, and mental wellness. I would suggest taking a career aptitude test for some guidance on what fields would suit your values and interests.
After you've narrowed down a few career options, you can begin researching what is required for the job- amount and type of schooling, credentialing, etc.
