Business Name

Friends & Family in the Blog World!

It has come time to get down to business in regards to my future health coaching business. As most of you know I am studying to become a holistic health coach and presently am taking part in a year long online program. This has allowed me to gain a better understanding of over 100 different dietary theories. The program equips me to take on personal clients and coach them into an overall healthier lifestyle. It has come time for me to decide a business name that will represent me and my business offerings in the very near future. I need to chose a name so that I can move forward with marketing this business. This is where I need your help. I have been toiling over names for quite some time now and feel like I have narrowed my options down to several that will represent me. There are a few qualifications for my business name:
  • It obviously can't already be in use.
  • It needs to represent me.
  • It should do a good job of explaining what I offer in my health coaching business.
  • Needs to be fairly short so people can remember it.
Now as I think about exactly what I will be offering I am continually reminded of my passions. I am passionate about loving people, passionate about eating real food, passionate about helping others move towards a simple lifestyle, and passionate about encouraging people to take part in natural activities that benefit the body. Health coaching includes so much more than just the food we eat and our exercise as it also includes a close look at our relationships, our career satisfaction, and our spirtuality. So I'm thinking about how all of these things relate when choosing my business name.

Here are my options:
  1. Simply Live Well
  2. Simple Well Living
  3. Living Simply Well
  4. Simply Whole Living
  5. Simply Well with Amanda
I know they are all super similar, but please do me a favor and let me know your thoughts and opinions. Thanks!


  1. I like the last option. I think "Simply Well" alone rings well, but I also understand the addition of your name. For marketing purposes, your logo could be the first two words in a large font with "by/with Amanda" in a smaller font below. Good luck with the decision!

  2. Have you thought about checking to see if they are already in use? Businesses are quite particluar about other people using their brand words, which, virgin, easyjet have all taken smaller businesses to court to make sure they are not infringing on their brand name.
