How to Organize Ideas and Remember Effectively Using a Mind Mapping Tool

When we attend a seminar, listen to a lecture, or learn a new course, we take notes. There are many ways on how people do it.

And recently, people rely on their mobile phones. They use notes, or maybe some special apps. But of course, don’t forget the old way of taking down notes — the old school of pen and paper or specifically, pen and notebook. We don’t want to misplace those notes, are we?

Here’s another tool that can be addicted but really helpful – using a mind mapping tool. Why? Because it’s fun, it’s easy, and it’s creative!

Let me share with you how using a mind map can help organize your ideas and remember things more effectively. You can create an outline for your presentation or your online courses using a mind mapping tool.

Once you learn how to use it, you just can’t stop.


Connie Zabala is a VA for more than 5 years. Inspired by people around her, she just created an online course for aspiring VAs to show them how it’s done. Check out her website here.

Your website is only as safe as your last (good) backup

What would you do if you woke up and you website was … gone? There’s an ugly message from hackers showing where your lovely homepage is supposed to be.

What if this happened to your client – and they ask you to fix it for them?

It’s not always hackers. Innocent things like server issues, updates, or forgetting to renew your hosting can take your site down at the drop of a hat. How do you get it back quickly? How do you know if the backup you made is good?

During this presentation, you’ll learn tips I use everyday to backup a site so it can be quickly restored, no matter what tragedy has befallen it. You’ll also learn some tips to keep your WordPress site more secure and less likely to be hacked.

Your website is your business – keep it safe, and working hard for you.
