Nobody can tell you what to do and where to start but yourself. It is not like you ask "what to do" and someone you have never met before tells you "start selling frozen crabs" and you become a millionaire because they sold frozen crabs and became millionaires.

You must find the answers for yourself because that will be the only thing that will matter and you will value the most. The Internet is full of promoters and none will work for you unless you work for it first. So do a brainstorming. Read. Learn. Think (think a lot, ask yourself a lot of questions and answer those questions). This, what you know, what you don't know, what you like, what you hate, etc. One day, when constantly being in tune with your knowledge, education (and I do not necessarily mean college here), I mean read a lot and read everything you can put your hands on, it will dawn on you and you will be in awe asking yourself "why I haven't thought of it before"... but, unfortunately, as there is no magic, no holy grail, no easy path, it takes effort to find out what you want. Some people need to put a lot of effort, some can find it easy and come up with ideas out of both sleeves of their shirt in no time. You need to find out for yourself. No one can do that for you.

So, where to start? As I said, start brainstorming. Look at ideas you know, ideas you like, your dreams. What will make you happy in life. Dream big. Then start narrowing down the path to the dream. How you get there, what can you do to achieve it?

For example, my dream was to create a stream of income that will flow into my bank account even if I do absolutely nothing (I am extremely lazy). So I was dreaming big on traveling the world and spending fun time without the need of going to work for a 9-5 rat race every day. My next task was to find out which venues can get me there... I found my way and working on it hard...

This a marathon, not a sprint. Set your expectations properly.

Start with value skew. (Unscripted , back chapters.) No need to reinvent wheels, Uber, or Facebook.

The best place to start is to start creating value, even on a small scale. Sell something local which was created with your ingenuity or creativeness. Small wins, small processes, turn into bigger wins, and a bigger process.

Welcome to the forum.
