There are tons of ways to make money. Combine what you are interested in with what you see in the job market. If you're good at talking to people try to do sales jobs. If you're good at computers do it. then learn a trade or get a degree in things that will help you do what you want
If classrooms aren't your thing you might want to do hands on activities that you could learn a trade in. Cosmetology, welding and mechanics and nursing?0

You might consider learning programming. There are quite a few places online where you can learn coding (one place you might consider starting is freecodecamp, namely because it's free and it gives a pathway to follow for learning), and coding of jobs don't necessarily require a degree. My brother never obtained a degree of any sort in so far as I'm aware, but he's worked for companies such as Amazon and Microsoft amongst others.
Unlike many more academic subjects, it's relatively easy to build functional programs / websites which you can use to show your ability. Those types of jobs in so far as I'm aware can often pay reasonably well and aren't necessarily that difficult to obtain.
Beyond that you could look into online courses. There are quite a few websites that have online courses you can take for free (although getting a certificate may cost some relatively small amount of money from what I've observed), although they might not be the most useful thing for a job, they could be used to prove you have some knowledge in a subject. www.coursera.org might be a good place to start looking but there are other websites.0
