Mind Mapping free software and video training

by Adam Bean on December 12, 2009

Time is always a big problem for business owners and entrepreneurs alike, so in this post I am going to show you how to get hold of some mindmap free software that will help you organize those Entrepreneur and business startup ideas.

As well as show you that I am also going to show you how you can utilize your time, so that you can network, learn, provide value and create content all at the same time.

This isn’t going to be a theory as always I like to use real life examples so this is how this blog post, and the video down the bottom of this post came about.

It all started with the #twitterpreneur twub chat Jason Markow had yesterday, if you haven’t checked out the #twitterpreneur twub make sure you do the link for it is in my sidebar.
Anyway the topic was what were our goals as entrepreneurs for 2010 and different tools we use to organiize these goals to make sure we follow through on them.

At some point in the chat a couple of us started talking about mindmaps and what a great tool they were for organizing ideas.
The question about what mindmaps were was asked by one of the other entrepreneurs participating on the call.
So using the engage and interact principles that work so well for social media, I decided to create a quick tutorial for my blog which was a review of the mind mapping software.

So just by being involved on the #twitterpreneur chat I learnt a lot myself from other entrepreneurs, and found a problem that I could fix.
I figured that if an entrepreneur on the chat didn’t know about mindmaps maybe a lot of others out there might be looking for the same information (which was confirmed when I did my keyword research).

So if you are thinking about joining the next #twitterpreneur chat I would highly recommend it.
My advice to you would be interact, provide some valuable input, learn as much as possible and look for problems to solve.

So watch the video down the bottom of this post, and get over to the IMSL and grab you free silver membership which includes the freemind software and a video tutorial on how to use it.

Make sure you sign up for my report and audio on how to create your own information product, if you missed it just refresh the page and the fade in will come up again.

Please leave a comment below with your experience of using this software, or any questions you have.

Get out there and make a difference!!!
If a boilermaker from the Sunshine Coast can do it. SO CAN YOU !!!

Thanks for the shout out Adam! I really appreciate it.

Although I did not mention it on the talk, I have been a longtime user of FreeMind and similar products. My biggest issue lately has been that the majority of my brainstorming occurs in the car or away from my computer, so I need a portable solution. As of right now, I am recording notes via my iPhone voice recorder, and converting to text. This is cumbersome and not effective. Anyone have a solution out there?

Thanks for the comment Jason
The only thing I know of is dragon naturally speaking and a compatible voice recorder.
The link below is to some info about it on Amazon

I guess it wasn’t a stupid question I had after all! Thanks so much for putting together the quick tutorial and sending me the links. I’ll have to try it out. But I do have the same problem Jason has, too. I have so much time to think in the car and it’s the only place I can’t do anything but drive. A digital recorder could be cool…

Hi Carlee
There is no such thing as a stupid question.
Questions are how we all interact and learn.
Thanks for leaving a comment.
