Idea and creativity

Generating ideas with your own skills.


As we all know that all businesses start with a business idea that comes from the entrepreneurial brain. It is part of the idea generation process. If the business potential energy of your business idea is at a higher level, the higher will be your overall business potential energy.

With all these being said let’s see how you could be generating ideas with your own skills

Steps to generating ideas with your own skills.

If you accomplish the first step of a business idea creation process successfully, you will pass the halfway to make your business idea to be with the highest possible business potential energy.

This first step when you integrate knowledge, passion, and hobby is the integration of your skills into your business idea. However, what are these skills? In the simplest form skills are defined as a knowledge of doing something or accomplishing something. This knowledge is covered through five different sources of knowledge:

  • The knowledge that you get from your home,
  • The knowledge that comes from your educational system,
  • Your own intelligence,
  • Your own experience, and
  • Your hobby.
  • Research

The generation process.

Self analysis.

Here, you must ask and answer several questions. What are the skills that you have? What skills are on the highest level and what skills are on the lowest possible level? What is your educational level? What is your hobby? After you find all your skills you must write them in descending order from skills with the highest level to lowest level skills.

Select skills that match on the highest level.

This will quickly help you position at an expert level, increase your worth and also your authority.

Generate business ideas that match those skills

At this stage of the process, you must increase your entrepreneurial creativity. I have already written about increasing creativity in six tips to increase creativity. Now, you can write the ideas close to your previously noted skills. Each idea will be next to the skills that the idea will require from your side to be implemented.

Researching and borrowing Ideas.

People known for creating a lot of brilliant ideas understand that ideas have to come from somewhere. You need to research your industry, competitors, keywords, buyer personas, content analytics and anything else you can add as the raw materials you’ll need to generate fresh ideas.


Another thing all of these models have in common is a final stage of evaluation. Creating ideas is a difficult process. Once you are 95% of the way there, resist the urge to call it good enough. After you have your raw concepts for content ideas, evaluate them and how they fit into your overall strategy.
