Thats a nice idea of yours.
If I were you, firstly what I will do is
a)I would start looking into sites like rentacoder.com or hireafreelancer.com where I can bid for and get some projects.
Let me tell you that payment is guaranteed at these sites if you finish the projects.
I would, in the meanwhile make up my own like-minded community of freelancers/to-be-entrepereneurs thr' sites like javaranch or the above sites' (u may agree that social networking is very important to gain new ideas while starting new things...)
I do not know much abotut google ads pay you, but its definitely possible to make money.Just do proper use of google
To be honest, I am interested in doing the same thing as what you are planning.I have a couple of very innovative ideas, but they need more than 1 person to take shape, if you are really enthu about working togetther and if we are in constant touch and we get along well in this matter, we can work together as well...
Please send a private message if you would like to talk to me...
All the best!!
