Last week, in Part # 1, we defined Mind Mapping and talked about its nature. In Part #2, we will discuss how to use Mind Mapping to help you start a new business, generate new ideas, or revitalize your business.
Whether you are thinking about starting a new business or revitalizing an existing one, visual Mind Mapping techniques can be an ideal way to bring life to your business ideas.
Business innovation and creativity are the results of effective brainstorming within a group. Getting a group of people together to brainstorm ideas is not always easy or practical. For those inopportune times, individual, hand-drawn Mind Mapping can be a great way to generate ideas on your own, and to develop a variety of great solutions for your small business problems.
Take a moment to focus on the ideas that you want to further develop. Then, follow this brief outline so you can begin leveraging the process of Mind Mapping for the success of your business.
Take advantage of free Mind Mapping software
Effective Mind Mapping cannot be overstated. It might be a good idea to begin Mind Mapping with free software like, Xmind and open source FreeMind. Once you have gained some experience using free versions, you can test drive some of the commercial ones such as, MindMapper and MindVisualizer.
One of the first Mind Mapping exercises you could attempt is to brainstorm how to acquire new clients for my business.
