I am very fortunate.
By just doing my own thing with my friends, the work we do was recognized.
By helping others offering free software we got published in a major online publication: https://www.makeuseof.com/windows-10-decrapifier-debloater/
I am very fortunate to have my friends and family who understand, support me and guide me and are positive.
I will try to help.
I learned at my old age, you just need to find a 1-2 friends with similar interests who you can collaborate with. It might take almost a lifetime to find them like in my case.
