God help me if I have children and need to choose a name to last their life time! Choosing a business name was quite a challenge for me. I’m getting better at making decisions – easy ones at least – but a business name is something I ummed and ahhed over for quite some time.
MakeLife Initiative was born up over a Sunday afternoon catch up with a couple of friends. MakeLife being a play on words, changing a couple of letters in my full name Madeline and represents the true purpose of what I am trying to achieve – MakeLife healthier, happier, more enjoyable and balanced. But I want this to be more than just making an individuals life better, because I think sharing health and happiness is so rewarding for us all, and hence Initiative was added. The Oxford Dictionary defines initiative as:
- The ability to assess and initiate things independently;
- The power or opportunity to act or take charge before others do;
- An act or strategy intended to resolve a difficulty or improve a situation; a fresh approach to something.
Initiative fit perfectly – it means taking ownership of a situation, thinking about it differently and improving it in a creative way. I also believe an initiative is a force and can be a group of people motivating each other to work towards a common goal.
I hope you join me on my mission to make the world happier, healthier and hopefully a little less stressed. Enjoy the ride with me!
