The Name to Use For Money Business
As a new independent contractor / consultant it has been decided by the shareholders that I won't create any kind of corporate shield.
But that doesn't mean I can't have a fun name for business. After asking my shareholders we have a number of options for creating a name where I can send really great invoices.
Valcherius Michelangelo Queen This is a fantasy name I came up a while ago. I like the idea of invoicing people with an overly elaborate name and creating a persona for my business work.
Merrill Finch In the movie Boiler Room (2000) there is a brokerage firm called J.T. Marlin, chosen to sound close to JP Morgan, a more established and trusted firm. There are a lot of options in this vein!
Michael Wave Theory Beau came up with this one in Slack. Michael Wave sounds like microwave and I like Michael Wave Theory because it sounds like the technical analysis Elliot Wave theory.
Michael Universe Another one from Beau, I think the initial spark was MikeWorldWide, a big PR agency.
Microsoft Internet Explorer This is a joke from my time at Panic where the idea was to use the name of some massive trademark but in a wildly different field. Sure, Internet Explorer is a thing in web browsers, but there is no confusion with a consulting company.
Business Affairs All the big studios have this massive black box full of lawyers called Business Affairs that slows down deals and makes petty requests to change the terms. So you'll have an interesting idea and some executive will say positive things and then come back later and tell you that Business Affairs didn't approve it. I think it sounds like erotic fanfic.
Busy Boys Industries Because sometimes you’re a busy lil boy.
UNIFIED METHODS What does it do? Who knows? The most generic name possible will leave many wondering if you provide clandestine work to the government, or worse.
Michaelsoft It's like microsoft.
Mikeintosh You get it.
Advantage Michael This is what I like to yell when I play tennis against Kathryn and she makes a mistake.
MikeMikeMike Because Llama Llama Llama is a thing
Vexing Multiplicities It sounds better with an LLC at the end but it still works.
Just Let Me Do It I think it's what most consultants think to themselves at one point or another. You could add a "Good Grief" to the beginning: Good Grief Just Let Me Do It, or a "For Goodness Sake" to the end: Just Let Me Do It For Goodness Sake, or both, why not?
