Hi, One of the most common sense thing you can do is evaluate what you are a good at. Then, look at how you can monetize that. Is there a hobby you have? Maybe you can monetize it. Do you have a passion? In my case, I also got laid off, so I wrote a book about something I cared about, which I am promoting now. That is giving me the experience to branch off into related niches.

I wish you luck.
