I don't know that it's as easy as being able to tell you what you would specifically be good at. I never in a million years thought I would be doing what I'm doing but, for the first time in my self-employment ventures, I truly LOVE what I do.
The important thing to remember (IMO) is that there is a vast difference between what you're good at and what you like to do. I am VERY proficient in administrative type of stuff, BUT I definitely am not passionate about that type of work. Thus, my first two ventures failed. Self-employment is hard work and, if you aren't passionate about what you're doing, it's pretty tough to get through the rough patches.
Think about the types of things that really make you feel good inside when you're doing them and then see what the common links are. Creativity? Helping people? Writing? That should begin to point you in the right direction.
