How can I be of best use to the world?

I'm looking to change careers and my goal is to be doing "that what is most effective towards helping the world". I asked in a previous question "What is the cause with the most leverage" and since then effective altruism seemed to be the best solution for making a difference on the biggest scale. But if I wanted to help that cause it seems like there's no better way to do it than to make a ton of money. Other than earn a ton of money, I suppose I could try to work for an organization like LifeYouCanSave. But would I be necessarily of greatest help doing that i.e suppose they have all the help they need other than people to donate. I'm not looking for importance or anything. If somehow standing on a corner counting how many red cars go by is the best thing I can be doing for the world, then so be it. I just want to know that I'm being useful.

Am I missing the point of my own idea?

I operate a universal wishlist website. It's still in the early stages, but I have a few users and I enjoy tinkering, and hope it will make me a few dollars someday down the road. Recently, I've gone into business for myself as a designer and developer. This has meant a lot of new traffic and a new trend in the types of things being added to wishlists... [more inside]
