Entrepreneurs and small businesses are the innovators and drivers of the 21st century economy. More than most businesses, you need innovative thinking and fresh ideas to envision new products, services, business models and solutions. You thrive or struggle based upon the quality of your thinking and your ideas. You are the torchbearers of the Innovation Age.
You have been some of the biggest early adopters of mind mapping software – because you don’t have to convince your IT department that it’s a worthwhile investment. You want it, you buy it. You’re the business owner. You can do that. But I want to know more about what you’re DOING with it, and how it has benefited you as the owner of a growing, innovative business.
At the same time, I get the sense that there is a new groundswell of entrepreneurialism emerging. What got me thinking about this idea was Chris Brogan, who has created a constellation of companies and services (such as Human Business Works and Kitchen Table Companies) designed to help people with great ideas to build businesses and communities of customers around them.
There are some exciting things going on here, and I want to shed some light on them.
If you’re an entrepreneur or owner of a small business, I would love to hear from you. How are YOU utilizing mind mapping software to help manage, grow and innovate your business?
