Can you apply for a green card to work in the US to sponsor yourself without an employer sponsored work visa (TN or otherwise)?

EB5

Sure, If you have a million dollars!

EB-1A/B if you have the credentials to back it up (leads to a green card). EB-5 if you have the capital to invest a million dollars in a business (leads to a green card). E-2 if you have the capital to invest $100k+ dollars in a business (does not lead to a green card).

You cannot self sponsor a TN. For O-1, you need an agent to sponsor you and you need to have the credentials for it. No other visas can be self sponsored.

Are you from Canada? You can quasi sponsor yourself for a TN management consultant, but you would need an executed contract and a letter of support from your end client
