Naming it and creating it… What is this business and what will we call her?
The basics: I am creating my own business. I will be supporting and promoting holistic health care practitioners by offering my skills as a writer, an editor, a healer, and a visionary. Yep, I dared call myself a visionary, and while I may not stick that on the business card, I know that talking with people about their dreams for their practice and helping them sketch out a way to realize their goals is going to be a huge part of my work.
I’ve got enough inner geek to see me through social networking and basic website creation, and I know I have a good eye and enough skill with InDesign to make some darn good publications. And is describing a Vinyasa Yoga class in two sentences the coolest way to play with language that I could ever be paid for? YES!

This whole enterprise is requiring buckets of the stuff, and I need to remind myself to dig deep and replenish the stocks at least once a day. And so, the newest incarnation of my fledgling business’s name has been born:
