“What’s in a name?” (10.16.16)

Patricia Bokowski, you know those feelings of euphoria, excitement, and inspiration that send your spirit soaring?
Well, they’re just me and all the angels, finally rushing through one of the many doors you’ve knocked upon, down the hall, and dancing into the light of your searching heart.
And those feelings of depression, sadness, and powerlessness that make you feel like you’re carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders?
They’re us, too. Reminding you that there are still a few more doors to try. 
Let’s get this party started,

What’s in a name?

Hint: make it unique.

But also.

East to remember!

So, this is my famous story.

Of how I came up with my.

NineFrogs business name.

So, it’s late 2011.

And I needed to come up with a name.

For my new business.

I knew I wanted it to be two syllables.

And a .com name.

So, I went on GoDaddy.

I must have gone through about fifty names that day!

All the names were taken.

Who knew it would be that difficult?

Then.

After an exhausting afternoon.

Of trying to come up with a unique name.

I decided to take a shower.

I thought.

Maybe it will help my thought process.

And then.

I spotted it.

In our shower was a little plastic frog.

And I thought.

Mmmm.

Frogs are cute.

They are also good luck in Feng Shui.

So I thought, cool that should work.

Then I thought of colors.

Like.

Pink Frog.

Purple Frog.

All taken .

Then I went to numbers in my head.

One Frog.

Two Frogs.

And so on.

Then I got to NineFrogs.

And I thought.

That has a great ring to it!

And presto!

My new business name!

What’s in a name?

Not long after naming my new business.

Someone sent me this👇👇👇

F.R.O.G. MEANS, Fully Rely On God.  

Don’t believe me, Google it!

Yes, it’s true.

Have you ever seen someone wearing a frog pin?

Or have a frog statue on their desk or in their home?

Now you know why!

What’s in a name?

As for me.

I have quite the collection.

Of frog statues all over my house.

A daily reminder.

To believe I can do anything I set my mind to!

And since they are good luck.

Who wouldn’t want them.

All over your house!

What’s in a name?

To me, NineFrogs means: a space of grace, enlightenment and joy!

And.

In case you weren’t aware.

The number nine is the money-bags number in Feng Shui.

So, as far as I am concerned.

It was mean to be.

Like a wink from The Universe.

Now, that said.

Do you think I just sit back everyday?

Waiting for grace, enlightenment and joy.

To come knocking on my door?

Or.

Do you think I work.

At making all those things.

Come true everyday?

Taking action?

Making my own opportunities?

That would be a yes, yes, and yes!

What’s in a name?

Here’s the thing about naming your business.

It doesn’t have to have anything to do WITH your business.

It just has to be catchy.

And unique.

And not too long.

I’ve worked with people who’s business name is:

Joe Kramer’s Unique Fix It Shop and Garage LLC (I made up that name fyi).

Instead make it: Joe’s Garage

Because, in the back of your head.

You have to think about how you are going to market your business.

And marketing a long business name is not ideal.

Think of these names:

Amazon

Walmart

Target

Microsoft

TJMaxx

PayPal

To name just a few.

What’s in a name?

What do they all have in common?

Short and sweet!

And all memorable.

I mean, who hasn’t heard of any of these businesses?

They are world known.

Because they have great marketing.

And easy to use business names.

Again, think about that when choosing your business name.

I was smart enough.

That I read some marketing.

Books back in 2011.

And in every book.

That was a major part of marketing.

Choosing a unique business name.

I hope this helps!

What’s in a name?

People ask me.

How do I like having my own business.

And I always say: I love it.

I will literally be working on my business till I die!

That’s what happens when you do what you love!

And I hope you are loving what you are doing!

If not.

Please.

Change that asap! NineFrogs Daily QUOTE OF THE DAY:
