If you want to make money as an artist, create as much art as you can... and put it all out there.
If you want to make money writing, write as much as you can... and put it all out there.
If you want to become a famous public speaker, give as many talks as you can.
And if no one is willing to pay you for the things you do (why should they?), then do it for free.
Because the only way to get paid for anything is to be a professional.
And the only way to be a professional is to become really good at the things you do and let people know about the things you do.
But if you never do them, you'll never get really good at them.
And if you never put your work or yourself out there, then there's no way that people will ever find out about you and your work (no matter how good you are).
And if no one knows about you and the things you do, then no one will pay you for the things yo do...
