I had to quit university to come support my family due to illness i work a job already but its pretty bad pay since i live in one of those ''shithole'' countries as Trump would say.

I want make money from things i enjoy just not sure how to go about it.
I have an interest in digital marketing, spent my personal time over the years on meditating,self development ,use to volunteer to help people with mental issues(such as anxiety,fear,social interaction)and helping people get their weight and health in order since they use to ask at the gym.
How do i combine these things or really any suggestion doing anything with atleast 1 of those things and making money off it would be hugely helpful.

Your primary concern at the moment is not how to do something you enjoy; it's to make money.

Start with the market, then work backwards to your skills & aptitudes. Only then consider which of the options you'll enjoy most (or dislike least).

That's part of your problem...

You're trying to make the market fit what you love, instead of giving the market what it loves.

If you want to make money, choose something in digital marketing and find clients outside your country. Find the webdesign thread from @Fox on this forum, that might help you.

I like the shithole you're living it btw. I actually travel one or more of your neighboring shitholes every year.

I always wanted to go to Serbia.

I would suggest something online so you can reach US, Canada, UK, or other bigger markets.

Also something with low capital needed to get going - SEO, web design, Adwords, copywriting, video editing, social media management etc.

All of these can be learned easy from these forums or elsewhere.
Do some searching on the forum and tag in the people you come across who might be able to help.
