T​he most important skill in business isn’t a technical, marketing or sales skill. It’s not even strictly related to business. This most essential skill is your ability to brainstorm.

Everything in the world of business is driven by ideas. The ability to brainstorm allows you to efficiently generate ideas and evaluate those ideas to find the right one for the situation at hand.

Without brainstorming, you have to rely strictly on inspiration to give you the ideas you need. You may sometimes be struck with ideas or inspiration in the shower, in your car, walking down the street, and so on.

Mindmapping is a key ingredient in getting your ideas down on paper or on some format to reference as you go and later on.

Here are 17 free (and low cost) mindmapping resources you can use to kickstart and create the outcomes you desire during your brainstorming sessions:
