Lifestyle Aspects to Generate Business Ideas for Brand Building

How do I find business ideas in an oversaturated market? That is a common question most wantrepreneur and visionary entrepreneurs seeking to diversify, rebrand, and expand their empires always ask themselves. Of course, the basic principle is not to reinvent the wheel. But to be creative and innovative. You do not need to waste your creative power by doing something someone has already done successfully. That mindset of not reinventing the wheel for venturing into the entrepreneurial world is a strong foundation for solid brand building based on the purpose and value of your business venture. 

Remember, a well-defined business venture starts with a strong business idea, clarified and niched into a simple and practical business model. That empowers and enables you to build a viable, functional, and valuable brand for impact and influence in your industry in a business landscape that is rotting with disruptions and duplication of more or less the same kind of idea, especially in the tech sector. So, how best can you source for more personal brandable ideas in today’s oversaturated business landscape?

Be the Source of Your Business Ideas

The secret is to start with yourself and go back to the basics of your own self-awareness and self-driven mindset of establishing a brand that reflects who you are and what you can contribute to the world as a solution that some people never thought about and saw it happening as a benefit to their own lives and entrepreneurial pursuits or dreams. It is unbelievable that each of us is sitting on entrepreneurial ideas that could help make the world a better place to live, learn, work, and do business.

The challenge is how to dig in and bring it into the world for public consumption to those who find value in it if well packaged and delivered through appropriate channels on relevant platforms. That is why personal branding has become a popular topic for founders and CEOs to embrace in a more meaningful and substantial way than just social media appearances with nothing holistic and humane to command their voice and presence for positioning their brands in the saturated market. Here is where to start searching for practical and functional business ideas that help establish yourself as an entrepreneur, founder, and CEO in your entrepreneurial ventures for solid brand building.


What you consume and binge on can be a wealthy source for generating a business idea you will die for to showcase to the world. Besides copywriting for digital marketing, I like sewing and fashion. And am a sucker for soft flowy cotton. Especially the summer cotton fashion pieces that I always associate with beach lifestyle fashion sense.  

And I already have a business idea, like working on must-have summer cool tops. For creating and building it into a brand, I would focus on snazzy tops. And the brand could be; ‘Cool Tops’ just for fun. But please don’t duplicate our idea. If you like the idea, you can contact us for collaboration, not disruption.

Never underestimate the exposure you get from any hobby you choose to get involved in. In my book, the Art of Simple Living, this is one topic that most people find fascinating to read and get the gist of it all from there. Remember, most people hardly think of having hobbies due to the rat race lifestyle that impedes creativity and the joy of simple living. Yet worldly, widely read, and traveled entrepreneurs, founders, and CEOs are more inspiring to do business with. They are not just technical-minded but practical and realistic in their entrepreneurial pursuits and brand-building strategies.

Generating ideas based on your hobbies will instill an entrepreneurial mindset of turning simple business ideas into valuable brands. Remember, brand building is not fancy and unachievable, as most people seem to have been taught and believe. It all boils down to your mindset and how you see the world around you. Think massive and dare change your hobby into an exciting project you can build into a valuable brand. 


Beliefs are powerful sources for visionary business ideas. What you believe in life and business can be a rich source for viable business ideas that might seek to remake the world for impact and influence in our societies and business landscape. Beliefs are a strong foundation for coming out with new perspectives and ways of doing stuff in the market. Beliefs influence your vision in life and business. That is why most successful entrepreneurs are visionary.

They get inspiration from what they believe in for generating business ideas for solutions to problems they might have encountered or other people encountering. That cannot be hard to relate to. Most successful entrepreneurs have beliefs influencing everything they have accomplished in their entrepreneurial and brand-building process and journey.

 You may want to reflect on entrepreneurs like Jack Ma, who believes in innovation and not giving up, Jeff Bezos, who believes in passion and adventure pursuits, and Elon Musk, who believes in sustainable growth through long-term value creation and impact in the world. Beliefs guide values for legit and authentic value creation that boosts credibility and integrity.


What you expose yourself to at home, school, college, work, or business can be explored and reflected for practical and viable business ideas that can help transform other people’s lives. The validation of your business idea that most creators always cite as one of the steps in building your business is your first-hand experiences and seeing how to clarify, brand, package, market them for deliverance, and consumption by the target audience.

As a former teacher, I could sense the hunger for something more challenging in my learner’s pursuit of knowledge that the prescribed English Language curriculum could not provide. Remember, as a teacher in a four-walled classroom, I had to religiously follow the syllabus with no tweaking here and there the way I could have wanted for my learner’s developing minds. That is why I have designed the holistic literacy program, which I know is practical and exposes learners to real-life situations in today’s digital world.

Explore your experiences, and you will never run short of business ideas that can inspire and motivate you to create and build something massive in the market. That you will never see as work but as a service to the people. Experiences are a strong foundation for building something relevant to the needs of your community, society, and the world.


A knowledgeable entrepreneur, founder, or CEO is more strategic in their projects and product development for professional branding and marketing to the world. Nothing is as powerful as using your knowledge to position yourself online and bring new perspectives in any field of your choice and interest and expertise. The professional knowledge sector has never been so popular and exciting in the business landscape. It has already gained recognition as an era of the knowledge economy for most professionals to explore and exploit through courses, webinars, YouTube videos, and other multimedia channels and platforms.

Some in coaching and consultancy have built multimillion-dollar empires through seminars, public speaking, training, and live presentations on virtual platforms. You can never go wrong with packaging your knowledge into something practical and using it in solving other people’s problems and pain points. The sky is the limit, especially with technology and the internet making everything digital, mobile, and portable.

A knowledge-based business idea can be an exciting opportunity to showcase your expertise and authority in your industry and subject matter. Remember, we now live in a knowledge and information-based economy. The more knowledge-based information you can curate, the more valuable and credible it becomes. They say knowledge is power. They are right. And that has become the guiding principle in doing business online through online courses, webinars, podcasts, blogs, and video presentations.


Some billionaire mindset entrepreneurs insist on not following passions but money and building wealth instead. That is debatable and depends on the industry to build your wealth. Passion is what makes everything easy and enjoyable. Do what you love, and you will never feel it’s work. Your work would be more fulfilling by doing what you love and contributing to making the world a better place to live, learn, work, and do business. That is always echoed and is a belief system from more innovative pioneer entrepreneurs like Jeff Bezos. Doing what you are passionate about will shape the whole trajectory of your entrepreneurship dreams and aspirations. Remember the Passion of Christ.

It will make you not feel scared that you are starting a business. But a challenging project aligned with your passions. And that will make the whole adventure exciting and full of fun and the unknown. Remember how most people get scared of entrepreneurship and going solo? It is not always easy, but you can do it. Pursue business ideas based on your lifestyle habits and elements. That will keep you grounded, knowing you are doing something based on your hobby, belief, knowledge, experience, and passion.

That is true. We have experienced it, especially with the new mindset of being more creative and innovative in the digital economy with an entrepreneurial approach to business than the cold and limiting corporate mindset of doing anything as long as it churns billions of valueless notes with limited benefit to the target consumer and user. In entrepreneurship, people work and laugh with a creative mindset of enjoying the job and providing value to consumers and users.

Remember, high productivity comes with the freedom of having the joy and freedom of exploring your creativity to deliver solutions of value and benefit to the consumer. And that is a powerful way of transforming your passion into a valuable business idea you can build into a solid brand. So, make your hobbies, beliefs, knowledge, experiences, and passions wealthy sources for business ideas you can build into a valuable brand.
