    Think about a skill you've got that's marketable.
    If you have no skills then you'll need to look at products that can be sold on with a margin in them.

    Friend of mine started a network marketing business in his gap year. Before he graduated from uni he actually quit as his network marketing business was paying him more than the profession he was heading towards. His classmates on the other hand graduated with massive debt and have signed themselves up for a lifetime of hard labour.
