How to find business ideas and marketers?

Possible Duplicate: What's the best way to find/evaluate a Marketing co-founder?

I work full time as an developer. I have more than 5 years of professional experience in writing enterprise software for some of the largest companies in my region (Porsche Sweden, insurance companies, telecom companies, etc.)

I would like to build my own product, that will generate a stable monthly net income between $300 and $600. I have the skills, but don't know what market demands. Since I work full time, I have no time to promote the product.

What's the best way to find people with business ideas and good marketing strategy who are in need of software developers?

  1. Find something that you're passionate about, and then figure out what would you could create to make it all so more super awesome.
  2. Test your theory about whether it is super awesome to others like you. Read a bunch of books about customer development to figure out how to do that.
  3. Review results and determine whether there is enough revenue to make it worthwhile.
  4. Launch, Pivot, make money, refine.

and then go back and repeat steps 1-4.
