Naming Your Business

Gone are the days of innocence when businesses could be named as simply as by these gentlemen in the photo.


WHAT IS THE BEST WAY OF GOING ABOUT THE NAMING EXERCISE?

I suggest a six-day course:

Day 1 – Identify key ATTRIBUTES, EMOTIONS & FLAVOURS. Based on them write generic names. Keep writing till you go to sleep.

Day 2 – Try your hand at Name Combinations. Once again write as many as you can. Worry not if they sound absurd. Just keep checking for similar existences… Google!

Day 3 – If you have done first two sincerely and diligently, ABSTRACT NAMES would start coming to you by themselves. Note them… play with them… may be Google them.

Day 4 – You are likely to meet someone… will share your struggle story and feel extremely CONFUSED… thanks the feedback. Let it be.

Day 5 – Things may get DEPRESSIVE. You may start cursing yourself or someone… Show patience; Have faith and just live through it.

Day 6 – The NAME YOU WANT will come to you. I Guarantee!

The most important point here is – HOW YOU SET THE BALL ROLLING ON DAY 1.

If that has been done correctly, there’s no way you shall miss the Day 6 target.
The journey won’t be easy, but success assured.

Wondering, who am I to make that claim? Well, that’s because that’s one of the things I do to earn a living. I help entrepreneurs set the ball rolling on DAY 1 and thereafter support them until the objective has been met.

Being the CEO

It’s all time management!

No! It’s not me who is saying that. Instead I have heard at least 3 founder CEOs repeat this message to me at different points of time.
So what is Time Management Being a CEO?

Oh! You feel, you are yet to be classified a CEO. Well, may be at the moment you just have an idea. Or maybe you have a small start-up, but nevertheless, being leader of the venture, you by default become a CEO.
This is the last story of the series and today the message is – always keep watching where your time is going?
Where must your time go? If that is the question… the chart may provide a lead.


 

The titles in grey colour are thinking subjects, where mental time and energy must go uniformly and regularly.

Box no. 4 and 5 is what one ends up doing almost 90% of the time.

The titles in the blue are spaces that must be watched out and time window created for conserving them.

And finally, the green-zone, where the title says it all!!! People say that is where the magic zone is. Try it first hand to find out more.

I am not providing how much of a day / week / month must go into what. That’s because CEOs neither like being told nor need to be told every little detail. So here on… happy CEOing!
Alles Gutte!
