  • Great presentation! Thank you. Any chance you (or others reading this post) have used MindManager with a citation/reference manager like Zotero or Docear?

  • Thank you for your encouragement, guys. I am starting my affiliate websites, however, developing the MindMap continues to be a labor intense activity. My fear is that I am spending too many hours on the organization side and not enough time on the relationship developing side. . Are you able to offer any applicable insight ?

  • Thanks Chuck, I plan to add more presentations here to help others learn the value of and how to use mind maps. By the way, I'd love to hear how you and / or your wife use mind maps in actual coaching sessions. I've spoken to a few coaches in the past and recommended some maps. It'd be nice to get a group together and map out a whole tool kit for coaches.

  • Michael,
    Fantastic Job!!!

    This is great for everyone thru slide 75, and parts even after that.

    I have been using MindJet for almost 3 weeks now, and it has accelerated the startup of my new business at http://AllThingsCoaching.com. Its only been 8 weeks since I first had the idea, the website is up and moving fast, I am a MindJet affiliate, and I am using it everywhere. I have a major webinar coming up on July 23 to kick off a new 6 month intensive coaching program, and I am using a mind map for my webinar presentation and another for all planning for the course!

    Love it!
