I am not sure if you are aware of this but people will pay incredible amounts of money for a great mentor to work with them professionally and personally. I have personally been paid over $10,000 by a single person to receive mentorship from me. Can you help someone along their path? Can you guide them through a specific process or area of growth?
As a veteran, I believe you can for the simple reason that you have overcome and accomplished what most in the world are too afraid to even attempt!
Maybe you can’t walk, maybe you can’t catch a ball or hug your loved one… but can you give an encouraging word or inspire someone? IF you have the ability to get up each day and deal with what you are going through, could you be an inspiration to another who is struggle? YES!
There are many places that are actively looking for people just like you to come and speak to their community such as schools, churches, clubs, organizations, and corporations as well. And yes, they will pay you! It is often called a speaker fee or an honorarium. Look into who you can inspire and where they may hang out and then just let the leader know that you are open to the conversation.
All across the world you are in demand if you can write a complete sentence clearly. You may think I am joking, but go online and look at all the poorly written articles, offers, and sales pages. Did you know that one of the highest paid forms of writing is that of a copywriter? Yes, you can actually make an extraordinary income selling other peoples things!
