How can a 42 year old female with a Degree in Business earn more than $24,000 annual.?

I live in chicago. I am just getting my life back in order after years of a few bad circumstances. I have a Bachelors degree in Business Management but I make only $24,000 annual. How can I find a career/job making over $40,000 so that I can live like a real adult my age should? I have 10 years experience in the auto insurance industry working in a underwriting support department and two years experience as a claim adjuster trainee.
