Sunny what do you think about DBA names? Do you recommend a female use her maiden name if she is married or planning to be married?

Funny girl!

A great name represents you when there are no images or content available. Consider this example. I have a son and his name is Bubba, without knowing anything about him do you imagine he is big or small, smart or slow, handsome or ugly. These subconscious associations take place with our business names as well.

I used a name that says exactly what my channel is about. "Boreal Homestead" would have worked too, but would restrict possible audience. Miss Ala is cute enough to be on Camera! Tell her I said don't hide!

Star Augustine (1 year ago)
still feeling so confused as to what I should do....I am wanting to start a business for filming and posting dance related collaborative projects on youtube. I of course would be initiating the projects but I won't always be on camera I think.... Some of it will be me interviewing someone, others I'll be filming dance parades and then there will be the "artsy dance videos." Given all of the diversity to this work, I'm leaning towards making up a business name . I made one "HEARTist moves" clever but it sounds like "hardest moves" when said aloud I JUST REALIZED. LOL so I know I need to go with something else. Do you think I'm on the right track or should I just put the business in my name?

What if our name is not catchy such as Isaac Gomez, just an example.

Jillian Whinery (1 year ago)
Great video & tips Sunny! WIth everything you mentioned, I fall into the "Branding Yourself" category with using my name. However, my last name is a little tricky. My first name is easy and catchy but my last name is spelt "Whinery" but pronounced "Win-er-e". Do you think this might pose a problem?
I love your vids in general. Great content. And yes, if you do (or even may) want to sell some day, it's
MichelleHend (1 year ago)
You can do both. This is what I am doing. Personal brand and a company.

Hi Am going to start a garment brand with women's wear n latter maybe men's and even kids wear what kind of name will suit.. Names like Mango, Lychee and Apple and other stuff is already take..? As it has to be unisex what kind of names do u suggest. Don't want to use my name.
Alejandra Leyva (1 year ago)
I love your videos, I just started my own youtube channel for my company and I ran into your videos just at the right time! Thanks for all the great tips!
Ana Adebowale (1 year ago)
I love your videos and speaking of branding, I have a dilema. My name is not something people could easily pronounce or spell (usually they get my name wrong) so then I named my website and facebook Angel Trinity (obviously I do spiritual work, even coaching with a spiritual touch). With all the impact this would have on me speaking publicly and having to say I am to be found online as my business name, I thought Angel Trinity is much easier for anyone than Anamaria Adebowale. Does this seem to be a big issue or a block in people recognising me in my brand? Thank you.

Great Video I am studying Illustration I was going on the idea of "Pykesworld Illustration" Any feed back would be great :) keep up the awesome work.
Md shohag (1 year ago)
plzz can u help me to choose a name for clothing business....
Being in the clothing business would involve, I would think, "being creative". Creative enough to come up with a name. Plus "name for clothing business"... is NOT enough info for someone whose assistance you're asking. The company name should fit the type of clothing...or aspirations of the customers...or...? It might include or reflect the name of the owner. If it were a purse and accessories line...how about "Shohag's Shoes n Bags".

Hi Sunny, I have an EO with a name "Crystal" and I start thinking about changing it because it doesn't have any certain meaning. I want to explain about communication, rather than small scope, EO only. Thanks so much.

Hi Sunny and Ayla, At first I wanted to keep one channel for both my activities : Food Mentor and Social Media Coaching. But most of our peeps in our BYOBoss group suggest I don't and create a second audience. Would you agree with this? I would love to have your advice! Merci Sunny!

Magnum (2 years ago)
Great advice and insight. I've thought of using my own name, but there are about four famous people with the same name. A major league baseball player, a concert pianist, and an author. I kind of like Magnum Videos (and I'm happy with the logo I created for it). Any suggestions on how to improve my reach? Thanks, Sunny!
Mess To Home (2 years ago)
Thanks Boss! 😉 that was great.
Mess To Home (2 years ago)
My pleasure! Your videos are so helpful and professional! I'm still having to go back and watch others to learn more when I get the time. Your confidence keeps me coming back! We just asked for help in possibly changing our YouTube name because I wasn't likely my first choice at first and flip flopping based on what I have seen other vlogger families do with their channel. So I think we finally decided on a final name close to what we already have. Thanks so much again!
Sunny Lenarduzzi (2 years ago)
thanks for watching, Boss!!
Tanya Ledesma (2 years ago)
Hi Love, I am so glad I ran into your channel ! I'm thinking about starting my YouTube channel on home decorating on a budget & home diy projects, I'm studying for Interior Design & was thinking that this would be a great way to help me grow as a person but also as a future Interior Designer. I'm definitely planning on using my name as a brand... any suggestions ?.
Umi Chumi (2 years ago)
Sunny after watching your video, i concluded that i should use my own name for branding my self, because my channel is about uploading tutorials that i am making for my audience. #Respect From Umar (Pakistan)

There are a few factors in running a woodworking business. One place I discovered that succeeds in merging these is the Enata wood system (check it out on google) it's the most helpful blueprint i've heard of. Check out the unbelievable info.

JT Lewis (2 years ago)
so from what i gathered in this regarding taglines....its good to have one if you are using your own name to build a brand to help tell what you do...correct?
ItsGrawVez (2 years ago)
Awesome video! Can I build my business name as a brand as well as my slogan? I am working to brand "ItsGrawVez" and my slogan is "EnjoyTheGrind". Now people are now interested in buying tshirts that say "EnjoyTheGrind"

Still speaks like a machine gun... ;-)! Okay, but guess for many a video that helps a lot. EVEN a good name is just the start. The rest is hard work and a lot of luck. Sunny ! Have a great day !
