Every business starts as an idea inside the mind of the entrepreneur.
Just looking at your business in a different way will enable you to consolidate, grow and position your business better in your own mind, your customer's mind and in the mind of potential clients.
During the business concept phase, you have to fly in your head, brainstorm and think out of the box.
But there's more ...
A mind mapped business plan will allow you to see the whole picture and explore each component of the business plan while keeping the relationship between the various components intact.
Mapping your mind allows you to explore your idea, structure and document it, and then use it to communicate it all to others.

• Customer Concept - Company's that build lifetime value for a customer will win as everybody has a share of the same customer.
• Societal Marketing Concept - Not only must a company look at the customer's lifetime value, they must also look at society's and the environment's needs.
A good marketing strategy starts on a mind map.
