Start-up on Friday, August 31

Yesterday I talked about how I’m starting a consulting practice and want to include you in this process. Today I want to provide a little information on the focus of the consulting company and get your ideas for a business name.

Yesterday I talked about how I’m starting a consulting practice and want to include you in this process. Today I want to provide a little information on the focus of the consulting company and get your ideas for a business name.

I have attached an Excel document (the link is below) that has my current purpose statement and some possible company names. The purpose statement is a work in progress and will evolve as I get feedback from you and my initial clients.

Right now, the hardest part is naming the company. I categorized the list of names on the spreadsheet to make it easier to review. However, you may think of a name that is not on the list. Feel free to contribute your thoughts no matter what they are. My intent is to have a name that is catchy and professional. I want to steer clear of trendy names and have something anyone can understand, not just people in HR, Training, or Organization Development. And, (the huge challenge these days) I need to have an associated web address (URL) that makes sense and is not so similar to another that if people mistype it they end up on a site I would rather not send them to.

So this is where I am now. I would greatly appreciate your help with the purpose statement and in narrowing the list of names. Please leave a comment or email me at msabbag3@gmail.com. In my next post, I will have a summary of the feedback I receive and where I am with my business plan. Thank you for your support in my endeavor!

New Company Names

Starting a business

Although I have consulted for the past year (and for over half of my career), I am now “formally” starting a consulting practice. Yes, I’m jumping in with both feet. My first focus will be on helping organizations gain exemplary performing and highly engaged people. Over the coming weeks, I will be going through all the activities and challenges that come with starting a business. I want to take you on my journey and let you know all I am going through.

More importantly, I want to get your thoughts and suggestions. I guess you can say I am croudsourcing my consulting practice because what you contribute will help me make many decisions. As the days go on, I will be sharing what I am doing and asking for your advice. Please take a second to respond in the comments section, vote on a pole, or even contact me directly. My email address is msabbag3@gmail.com. With your help, I am sure this will go well.

Tomorrow, I will have a statement about the specific area of focus for my business and possible names. I will need your advice on the naming thing. I have thought about that for a while and have asked some trusted colleagues for their input but nothing is sticking. It’s amazing how hard it is to come up with a name.

Also, let me know what you think of the new look for my blog. Thank you for tuning in. I hope to hear from you soon!
