Get Creative With Naming Your Website

 

There are a number of creative ways to come up with a name for your business or website.  A quick google search for new business names and you will find loads of blogs and websites with a pre-made list of fun and relative names for the curious entrepreneur.  Seems a little too easy, doesn’t it? Well, it is pretty easy if that is the direction you’re trying to take.

I’ve had some practice in this particular area and know the struggles of trying to find that perfect name.  This is the name that you want to imagine sticking in the minds of millions of people. So instead of scrolling through the countless list of names that people have selected for you, try coming up with your own.   It takes time and consideration when choosing your name so don’t try to rush this process. The first step in finding your name is knowing what exactly your message is. What is your niche and how will your name tie into that?  Most people get stuck on this part because they haven’t taken the necessary time to sit down and narrow their passions to specifics. Finding your niche is key to creating your name.

The most creative way I have found in making a new name is by using one of the biggest sources of definition.  Often when we are trying too hard to find something, we never accomplish finding what we were really looking for.  To come up with a name for your business you have to put in the work.  Get fun with words.  Go to your search engine and type in a word or words specific to your niche and look them up in the online dictionary.  Look up the words synonym and also words related to that specific word.  Put two words together if you want a two-word name.  I found by using this exact method, you improve your chances of creating a unique name rather than a name that was thought up in the mind of another.  Moreover, you get to experience the gratification of coming up with it on your own.  Your name defines your mission and your mission defines you.

Key Things To Remember:

  • Finding a name takes time, don’t rush the process.
  • Pick a few names that stick out to you and then narrow it down to the one that you can’t stop thinking about.
  • Be creative!  You took the brave step towards a new future and never-ending possibilities.  Have fun with the beginning stages.

Good Luck!

 

 

 

 

The Power Of Creativity

 

Have you ever woke up in the morning with this insanely great idea to do something amazing and then slowly let it disappear as you let the day to day requirements creep in?  Creativity is often lost in the day to day autopilot programming that we live in.  We get up in the morning with the intent to do everything that we did the day before and most often we spend the day thinking about what we’re doing tomorrow or the next day.  Training your brain to be present and stay there is the most valuable practice anyone can do.

There have been so many times I have driven myself long distances only to realize I couldn’t remember how I had got there.  Living autopilot isn’t the life I want to remember telling my great grandchildren about.  Every morning brings new possibilities.  Opportunity is always surrounding us, we just have to be awake enough to see them and take hold of them.  I’m a huge fan of new ideas and creating new habits so with that in mind, I have decided to challenge myself and you of course.  Follow along with me in practicing these simple (seriously simple) techniques to awaken your creativity.  Daily practice is essential so if you plan to see any kind of results, don’t plan on being a slacker.

  • Wake up 30 minutes earlier than you already do.  You can use this time to lie in bed and think about all the things you want to achieve.  Focus on the things that are most important to you.  I find creativity speaks loudest in those early morning hours of the morning.

  • Practice positive self talk.  I have to admit this might be the toughest one.  If anyone is the meanest to “me”, it is myself.  I am guilty of consistently telling myself I can’t do it, what if they don’t like me, I’m not good enough.  There is no need for all this pressure. Be kind to yourself.

  • Stop worrying about how you are going to do it.  Make a plan, decide it’s what you want, and go for it.  Details will fall into place.  If you’re passionate about something then fight hard to make it happen.  Too often I stop myself from achieving my own goals.  Only I can change my circumstances.

What are some ways you spark creativity?

 

 

Fail With Confidence

Every year myself, as well as many other individuals, strive to change certain aspects of our life’s.  We may try to wake up a little earlier or eat a little different.  Whatever it is we are reaching for something to make a difference.  Some of you may not know where or how to make the changes necessary to be helpful.  Most of the time we lose inspiration or simply give in to our normal routines.  Have you ever asked yourself why you give in so easily?  We can change the way we do things and we do have the ability to keep going.  What if we pushed past that urge to give up and continued to build on the foundations that we have begun?  January isn’t the only month of the year to start a resolution.  Resolutions can be made at any moment or on any day.  We can change all aspects of our life whether it be relationships, careers, money habits, anything!

Rumor has it that January 21st of every year could be the most depressing day of the year.  How is it that some of us can enjoy so much of the holidays and our families and of course that amazing food and then the first of the year rolls around and we have a burst of energy to change the world and then weeks later we fall flat on our faces?  Is it that people are programmed to dream big and then the world tells them their dreaming to big?  Stop letting the world tell you how to move forward.  If you want to make changes and keep them here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Don’t be afraid to fail: Failing is how we learn, it is the most necessary thing to grow.  I fail every day in many aspects and yet I refuse to stop trying.  Fail with confidence.

  • Be consistent:  If you forget to be consistent then wake up the next day and try again.  Consistency will stick at some point and you will learn the habit.

  • Live to serve:  This is a recent concept that I have learned.  There is nothing in this world that we can take with us when our lives have ended.  The most meaningful and powerful feeling can be achieved from giving to and serving others.

  • Forgive:  This one can be really hard but it can also be really easy.  Let go of what you know others have done to hurt you, or what they have said about you.  Having the ability to forgive others is having the power to be the bigger person.

  • Be amazing:  In everything you do, do it with a pep in your step.  The day may crash around you but at least you tried to make it as amazing as possible. Whether there is a tomorrow or not, you will be remembered for your attitude and for the way you treated people.

Always remember that we are all striving for something.  There is so much commonality between people that we could use it to make a difference.  Your accomplishments are my accomplishments.  Love the most unlovable people and you will see a change in them.  Most importantly you will see a change in yourself.

A New Year, A New Me

It’s a new year and everyone is rushing to change their ways.  One of the most popular New Year resolutions categories would fall under health and diet.  “A new year, a new me!” At least this is what we tell ourselves.  It’s way too easy to fall off the health bandwagon, take it from me.  I have tried the amazing diet “KETO” at least 4 times in the last three months (Don’t Judge!).  100% healthy clean eating isn’t exactly the easiest thing to achieve when you are surrounded by all of those amazing holiday goodies.  The one great thing about a New Year is that we can push reset on all of our old habits and hopefully achieve new and better habits.  So for anyone wanting to dive into the Keto diet or any other clean eating diet here are a few things to consider.

  • Don’t throw away all of your current goodies you have stocked up in the cabinet.  This is self-sabotage.  You have to train your brain to have self-control.  Throwing away tempting foods will only make you crave them more!  My opinion slowly replaces the bad with the good.  This will help your pocket as well!

  • Eggs & avocados can be your best friend (specifically on Keto)!  There will be plenty of days when you feel like your stomach is eating itself and not only that, most people don’t have time to be in the kitchen making delicious snacks and meals all day.  I try to have hard-boiled eggs in the fridge ready to go.  It’s a great “go to” when you’re in a hurry!

  • Most importantly, don’t be so hard on yourself!  If someone offers you a taste of something that looks and smells amazing, just take the bite!  Balance is key in any diet.  You shouldn’t completely deprive yourself of what you desire or you might find yourself falling off that wagon and never returning.  The best thing any of us can do for ourselves is to form a habit of healthy choices and forgive ourselves during the learning process.

February Bucket List

Looking for ideas to add to your bucket list?  There are a number of things to see while you are alive and well.

Many people make bucket list as a reminder of things they want to do before they die and yet most never succeed at fulfilling any of those things.  It’s thought of as something to do towards the end of life but why should it be?  Stop dreaming about things as if hopefully they will happen later in life.  Make a list every week or every month of things you want to try or accomplish.  It could be as simple as exercising or drinking more water whichever it is you are acknowledging what you want and bringing it to the forefront of your thoughts. A good question to ask yourself is “how will you fill your bucket?”  We want to fill our lives with meaningful purposeful things that make a difference. I think we all know that time slips through our fingers faster than we can grasp it.  It is important to make the most out of every day even if it by taking the smallest of steps.

Here is my February list of things I want to do at this point in my life.  I may never do everyone but I am sure if given the opportunity I will do most.

  1. Take a Gondola through Venise Italy
  2. Visit a castle
  3. Zip Line
  4. Sleep on the beach
  5. Go sailing
  6. Ride horses along the coast
  7. Learn Italian
  8. Fly in a hot air balloon
  9. Take a cruise
  10. Do volunteer work

DIY FRESHENER SPRAY

Have you been looking for a way to freshen those closets?  Strong laundry soaps are the common way to make the house smell good but is it really good for your health?  I will let you be the judge of that!  When it comes to my clothes I prefer a more natural way of doing things.  Clothes are just the start, I also like to use my DIY Freshener to make the house smell AMAZING!

You can make a whole variety of different scents depending on which essential oil you prefer.  If you are not savvy to the amazing world of essential oils, I will fill you in on some of my favorites.

Essential oils have been used for decades to not only improve health but also to provide aroma.  Many different kinds of essential oils are used to make some of your favorite perfumes.  Lavender is one of my favorites and I use it for most of my DIY cleaning.  It is also known for it’s relaxing and calming benefits.  Some even use it at night to help them sleep.  Cinnamon bark and lemongrass are also very inviting in the home. If you are a young living fan than don’t miss out on Thieves essential oil.  It smells a little like cinnamon and is said to have sickness fighting properties but again I will let you be the judge.

When using essential oils to make your DIY Laundry Soap or DIY fresheners you will want to have a glass container to hold them.  Citrus essential oils can cause plastics to leach into your soaps and sprays.  I like to buy the amber glass spray bottles because they look great on counters and are fairly cheap on Amazon.

That’s it!  It really is that simple and it’s SUPPOSED to be.  You don’t want all of those nasty chemicals you can’t even pronounce lingering around your home.  I like to use this spray in my closets, on my clothes bins, and even on my curtains and bedding.  You save a lot of money not buying commercial fresheners & cleaners.  I don’t know about you but I like to save money and be natural at the same time!

P.s.  Make sure your not allergic to any of the essential oils you chose and always find a test spot for any oil.

Happy Spraying
