Featured Tranquilista: Jamie Nast

Jamie is committed to guiding individuals and organizations towards overcoming barriers to achieving success -- including those which reside in one's own mind.

Jamie was born and raised in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and currently lives in Plymouth, Michigan, where she and her husband founded NastGroup, Inc. in 1998. NastGroup is a training and consultancy organization. She has specialized in mind potential optimization since 1992. Her workshops augment mental aptitudes and maximize individual and organizational productivity. Her range of expertise spans Idea Mapping, speed reading, leadership, creating personal missions, memory, presentations, tapping creativity, strategic planning, and graphic facilitation.

From 1992 until 2006 Jamie directed Buzan Centres USA and was the only Senior Master Trainer representing Buzan Centres world-wide for mind mapping and other mental literacy skills. During that time she mentored over 15,000 people world-wide (now over 19,000) towards better mental productivity and certified 109 Qualified Buzan Instructors from 24 countries. She also wrote the Think, Learn & Create Workshop instructor training manual for the Buzan Centres.

She spent 12 years at Electronic Data Systems in management and leadership training capacities and was certified as a trainer for Steven Covey's Seven Habits of Highly Effective People in 1996. She is a graduate of Purdue University with a BA in Industrial Management and a minor in Computer Science.


Jamie's first book Idea Mapping: How to Access Your Hidden Brain Power, Learn Faster, Remember More, and Achieve Success in Business (published by John Wiley & Sons, Inc.) was released September 20, 2006. It is currently being sold around the globe and is either translated or being translated into Arabic, Russian, Serbian, Bulgarian, Japanese, and Korean. This book combines her real-world business experience with her teaching and Idea Mapping skills. Using her unique, results-oriented coaching strategies, she brings her workshop right to the reader. Jamie was published in the October 1996 issue of Personal Excellence, was a guest on VoiceAmerica.com in February 2004, and had a column featured in Purdue University's Krannert Magazine in November 2006. In January 2007 she was a guest on both the Rolanda Watts Show (Hollywood, CA) and A Closer Look hosted by Leslie Stone of Summit City Radio (Ft. Wayne, IN).

I just starting mapping about 6 months ago--mainly for planning out papers on various topics (especially the theory/methodology of intersectionality and its use in counseling).

For techies, there is a great Android app called Thinking Space (sorry iPhone users, I don't think it is available yet). While you cannot add images, it does allow you create a map as large as you want and use many different colors. You can save the map as an image or upload it to the cloud.
