I’ve been looking for mind mapping-related products and services that I can promote via my blog, but I’ve been very disappointed by what I’ve seen so far. I can’t in good conscience sell you something that I don’t believe in, so I’ve been very reluctant to promote any mind mapping e-books, online courses and other information products that don’t meet my high standards. Until now.
I first became aware of Michael Tipper via his Michael on Mind Mapping blog about two years ago. He impressed me with his high-quality blog posts, and his keen sense of knowledge about the principles of business – and how mind mapping software can bring greater productivity to common business tasks. My next experience with Michael was last year, when I did an e-mail interview with him. He impressed me with the deep thought he put into answering my questions. Here, I thought, is someone who thinks strategically, like I do.
So when Michael asked me if I would participate in an audio interview – which will be used as one of the bonuses for his new Business Profit Productivity Blueprint e-course – I jumped at the opportunity. We had an excellent conversation (which you can listen to here). I came away from this 40-minute discussion convinced that he is truly a kindred soul when it comes to mind mapping!
A sneak peek at Michael’s new mind mapping software e-course
Michael subsequently gave me a login so I could get a “sneak peek” at this online multimedia course (you’re hearing about it here first, folks!). I looked at several of the PDF “manuals” and videos, and was thoroughly impressed. I have been blessed (or some people would say cursed! ) with a finely tuned B.S. detector – in other words, I can immediately tell if an information product contains some real insights, or if it’s just a superficial treatment of the topic – or, worse yet, a bunch of crap hastily assembled as a quick “money grab.”
I’m pleased to be able to tell you that Michael’s e-course definitely falls into the former category – this is a professionally written and produced course that contains excellent, cohesive information. Although its primary audience is people who wish to build an online business, I believe nearly anyone who wants to learn more about utilizing mind mapping software for business can profit from the Business Profit Productivity Blueprint. Also, if you’ve been creating hand-drawn mind maps but aren’t quite convinced of the benefit of mind mapping software, then this program is definitely for you. Michael admits that he falls into this camp; it wasn’t until an internet marketing guru shared with him the benefits of software-produced mind maps that he “got it.”
It’s also important to frame who this e-course is NOT for: If you’re already an experienced user of mind mapping software, you will probably find it to be too basic.
Here’s what the Business Profit Productivity Blueprint contains
