My problem is that I don't really have a problem. :-)

So I don't have a clearly identifiable personal problem that I could solve with an "app". Otherwise I would probably have developed it already.

But a steady and predictable income of 1300 per month, yeah that would be a dream.

If you have a handful of friends in a particular industry, or if there is something you are really passionate about, you could always ask what their pain points are. E.g, maybe you have three or four friends that are parts store managers. Call them up! Ask them to tell you what is most frustrating about the software they're using. You might get nothing, or you might get ideas and beta testers at the same time.

Ah, but I forgot to mention that since a couple of months I work with some people who are knowledgeable in a particular "industry" and have a real problem to solve. So I'm now indeed working on a 'real' problem! Even though it's not "my own" problem.
