Rip, Pivot, and Jam
Studying what works for other indie hackers is one of the best ways to find realistic, profitable business ideas.  Many indie hackers share exactly how they did it which makes it much easier to replicate their success.  The idea is not to clone successful products (that probably won't work anyway) but to "rip, pivot, and jam".  Rip: Study a successful business and copy their business model.  Pivot: Apply the business model to another industry or vertical.  Jam: Hustle to get customers.  Or as Bruce Lee puts it: "Absorb what is useful, reject what is useless, add what is essentially your own."
