So here are the tips I can describe. These could fit person to person, so select your choice carefully.

Freelance work – First step you can take is doing some freelance work from you home in your free time. This seems an easy option but it is not. Most tough thing in it is to find work from market. You are experienced in your company but when you come into this world than you are a fresher and nobody believing you at start. So keep patience and keep trying or get some work from your contacts.

Professional Training – You are expert in your subject and you have good knowledge of the technology you are working on? Right! So why don’t you use these technical expertise to provide some professional training to the professional who are eager to learn those skills. You can provide this training own your own or you can join any professional training institute to provide training. They will give you per batch based money or per student based. But for this you should have expertise theoretical as well as practical knowledge. Because in IT field everyone wants a trainer who have working experience not just subjective knowledge.
