  • Don’t use an atlas, or a globe, or a map, or one of the map apps on your smartphone. It’s generally not a good idea to use your geographical location as part of your name. When you are just starting out and only looking for clients in your area it may not be so bad, but when you want to expand your reach and use the power of the Internet, or if you want to start created books and DVDs, you don’t want to be locked in to one specific area on the map.
  • Don’t use cliché names for businesses. Remember Acme Products from the Road Runner cartoons (perhaps you aren’t old enough)? Using a name like Acme, Superior, Best, Peak, or other similar names is probably not in the best interests of your business success.
  • Though they shouldn’t be cliché, names for life coaching business success should be relatively simple. You want to keep it simple so people can remember it, and also to use for your website address. A name like John Doe Life Coaching for Business Success and Prosperity may describe what you do, but it’s too many words for anyone to remember, and too many characters for anyone to type into a URL box.. You may lose business because your names is more than a mouthful!
  • To follow up on the item above, you should always consider your domain name before you select a name for your business.  Though you want it simple, it will be hard to find a domain name with less than seven letters – most of those have already been snapped up by other entrepreneurs. So, somewhere between short and simple, and long and complex, ideally close to the short and simple side, is best.
  • One of the last things to consider before choosing names for life coaching business success is your brand. You want to brand yourself – name, logo, slogan, Your name needs to work into a good brand. This is how people will recognize who you are what you you do, and how good you do it, for the remainder of your coaching career.
