    Try to think of something you like, something you would enjoy doing it.

    What skills do you have - keyword research, website build, SEO, PPC etc all desperately needed by businesses.

    Start with the problem. What problems do people have, that they spend money on solving that you can satisfy as an affiliate or with your own info product, or service

    If you can make some software or templates start a website to promote and sell those things.
