Read|Delete: Naming Your Company

RDimage_040615_B Naming your company after your product or service may seriously limit future expansion. Naming it after yourself or giving it a one-word, made-up name, potentially allows you to expand into other products, services and even industries. If you think you might eventually sell your company, go with a made-up name (think Zappos, Etsy, Google). Always check with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office website to ensure the name is not already trademarked. Source: Success Magazine Got an interesting Fast Fact for a business audience?
