This week, we opened the doors on our brand-new course for idea development.
The course — Mastering Mind Maps — is all about how to manage and develop your ideas. And it is fantastic.
The new course is normally $57. But right now, during launch week, you can save 20% and get lifetime access to everything for just $45.
Consider how much time you will save by having your ideas better organized.
Consider how much easier the creative process will be with a simple system for developing your ideas.
Instead of staring at the blank page, frustrated or discouraged, you can have a structure and clarity about your idea — ready to keep moving forward.
Last fall, I committed to give a webinar presentation. And that presentation was this week (Tuesday, Feb 11).
And, believe it or not, I didn’t actually put the presentation together until yesterday morning — just a few hours before it was due. But! It was not my fault…
On Monday of this week, I was finally able to sit down and go over what the host was hoping I could share about. And that’s when I found out they wanted me to do the entire presentation…
Fortunately, the topic they wanted me to talk about is something I am super familiar with, so it wasn’t a big deal.
But I didn’t have any presentation material prepared. And I didn’t have a whole lot of time. (I kinda had a big product launch to wrap up…)
Now, you can probably guess where this is going…
Mind mapping has long been one of my favorite tools to help me get thoughts out of my head and onto paper (or screen) as well as give things a semblence of order without enforcing a strict structure. I realized some time ago that there are particular areas for which I frequently turn to mind maps, and the benefit of this is tangible.

Myke Hurley and Stephen Hackett, Founders of Relay FM, announced two exciting new shows this week that really caught our attention: The Test Drivers and Flashback.

Each episode, Austin and Myke will be exploring products from smartphones to laptops, software to gaming consoles. Anything could be a daily driver.
Flashback is a new podcast from Quinn Nelson and Stephen Hackett. Quinn hosts the Snazzy Labs YouTube channel, where he reviews Macs, PCs and more, exploring the world of notebooks, desktops and workstations with a bent toward hardware performance.
