The next step that I decided to take in my business makeover was to create a mind map for my business strategy so that I would be able to determine the direction better. According to, a mind map is…

A mind map is a diagram used to represent words, ideas, tasks, or other items linked to and arranged radially around a central key word or idea. It is used to generate, visualize, structure, and classify ideas, and as an aid in study, organization, problem solving, decision making, and writing.

In order to create my mind map, I use both an online version (Mind Meister) and desktop version (Freemind). I have found that when I need to share a mind map that the online version is best. But if I'm going to be on the go without access to the internet, I use the desktop version. The best thing is that the online allows you to import the desktop version files.

There are a number of strategy tools available that you can use to help you grow your business. Do you have specific tools that you can use to create strategy tools? Would love to hear about the tools you use.
