Building an income online requires time, patience, and dedication. That being said you can look for places to do transcription, you can sign up for freelancing websites and get hired to write articles or content or blog posts for others. You should build or have built a personal website/portfolio to highlight your work and experience. The more you can show, the more likely you are to get hired.
Also, if you are handy at handmade items you can sell on Etsy
Take whatever you are good at or most knowledgeable about and become a consultant or develop a website around it.
there are tons of ways to earn a living if you are persistent enough :)
