Enterprising Teenager uses MindGenius to start her own Business

Tammy Strickland, aged 16, has been a MindGenius user since the age of 9, using it to improve her study technique, and she has found it so helpful in achieving excellent results that last year she set up a business, sharing her maps with other students sitting their Irish Junior Certificate exams.

Her father, Niall, is a long term user of MindGenius, going back to the early Ygnius days of the product and he introduced her to MindGenius. According to Niall, Tammy took to the method “like a duck takes to water” and since then she has actively used MindGenius to effectively study.

After using the tool for her Junior Certificate examination programme over the last 2 years, Niall commented to Tammy that the quality of her work was of such a high standard, and the results she achieved in the exams so good, that she should sell her notes to other students.

Tammy thought about her dad’s idea and agreed that her MindGenius study notes could help other students going through their exams and, with a little help from Niall to set up the web pages, Tammy soon had her site, www.JuniorCertMindMaps.com up and running.

All of the maps and the work on the site are Tammy’s and now it seems she is on her way to having quite a successful business. The first purchasable product went live in November 2009 and despite the fact that the business has yet to be fully publicised, Tammy has sold hundreds of mindmap sets to date and had several thousand downloads of her free sample maps.

Tammy thinks that:
"Mindmaps created with MindGenius are a terrific aid to memory because they allow you to feed your brain in a way that allows you to effortlessly soak up knowledge. This can turn average students like me into high-achievers."

All 10 subjects, which incorporate more than 600 individual mindmaps, are now live and available to purchase on Tammy's website www.JuniorCertMindMaps.com
