Two Heads are Better than One

I’m calling on Team Brain. Since you’re reading this, you’re on the team! Most of you know that my speaking/training business is accelerating and I’m working on improving many aspects of my communication. I want to give a shout out to Wendi McNeil of Charli Jane Speaker Services. She's a terrific coach and is really emphasizing the importance of developing a strong online presence. As part of that, I am brainstorming 2 items today.

I need a “tag line”; a one sentence synopsis of my message. One. Sentence.

One of my speaker friends uses “Making the complicated simple.”
Charli Jane uses “Opening doors of opportunity”. The name of my business is LifePoint.
So far, I’ve come up with “Inspiration to live the life you’ve imagined”.

The other thing I’m brainstorming is the title for my e-Newsletter. I'll be publishing twice a month. “Life Notes” is not very original but I like it because it makes me think of musical notes as well as Cliff Notes.

I’d like to tell you your ideas will be entered in a contest with an amazing award. So I’ll tell you that. The reward is my undying friendship and gratitude. The rule on brainstorming is there are no rules – no idea is dumb. I'm thankful to have such smart & creative friends! Quit looking over your shoulder- I'm talking to you. : )

Aw, I am so bad at things like this. I think I would need to know a bit more about your business to help you out with an adequate tag line.
I like the one you suggest, perhaps a slight alteration;
"Inspiration to live your dreams".

As for the newsletter; what about;
"Life Letters".

Sorry that I am not of much help.
I hope nevertheless you are having a great Friday.;)))
Good luck with the brainstorming.;))

Ask Robin if you can use her saying she blogs about "living my legacy" and instead use "Living Your Legacy."

Oh dear, I'm not very good at this either, but I would love to have a piece of that cake just under this post. lol.

Ok, since I will be rewarded with your undying friendship and gratitude I must at least try!

I am so bad at this....why I did not go into marketing!! but it looks like you have some good suggestions already!!!

Rosezilla said...

Wow, I could really use undying friendship and gratitude. Wish I had a soaring inspiration for you! The only thing I have thought of so far is Living the Inspired Life. Or Inspirational Living. I like Life Notes. You could say Cliff Notes for Life. But yours is less cumbersome. If I get a flash of genius I'll be sure to get back to you :)

I apologize for lurking so long without commenting.

I like the newsletter title, "Life Notes".

For the tagline, I'd like to suggest, "Life from all Points".
