Gideon King, the founder of NovaMind, is a big fan of Squidoo, a free service that enables registered users to create resource pages on various subjects. But rather than create a set of links to cool mind mapping resources, Gideon has decided to take a different approach: to utilize this service to develop a series of articles about applications of mind mapping software.
This Squidoo "lens" on Using Mind Mapping to Clarify and Strengthen Your Business is a case in point. In it, Gideon explains how to use mind mapping software to create a company mission statement, how to set goals, plan your website and sell your ideas, all illustrated with brightly colored mind maps. They all recommend that you download and utilize a copy of NovaMind to create these maps, of course, but thankfully Gideon employs a "soft sell" approach. The bottom line is that he has created an informative article that many new mind mappers are likely to appreciate. He has also created lenses on How to Mind Map and Business Continuity.
