How to use Mind Mapping Software to Organize your Business

December 14, 2010

We've all heard the statement – “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail”. It's something that applies in just about every aspect of life. Well, since I've decided to spend more time making my Interactive Biology website into a viable online business, I decided that I needed to organize my thoughts in an actionable way.

In order to do that, I downloaded a free Mind Mapping program called FreeMind, and started to organize my business. I guess you can say that the main question I was asking myself was “where do I see my business going?”. You will see the results in the video below.

In watching the video, pay attention to how I set it up, and try to see how you can implement it in YOUR business. Once you're finished watching it, leave a comment letting me know how you think you can use it in your business, or how you have been using it already. Enjoy . . .

    Hi Leslie
    Thank you so much for your clear, paced explanations–in all your work. Education is certainly your vocation and I find it so refreshing to listen to your tutorials. It’s all substance and very genuine. This is a real gift in the internet work that is so full of hype and ludicrous nonscense. Keep it up–I make it a point to watch all your information because of this!
