Good morning,

I'm posting here for traffic.

I'm in the process of starting a business. It'll be providing help and support for lifechanging circumstances such as illness or injury.

The whole ethos is about being positive and finding ways to move forward, but also keeping it real and admitting that some days just getting out of bed is a major achievement.

I need to come up with a strong strapline for it, and this is where I'm really struggling. I can write and I can do public speaking, but I'm the least creative person going!

Can anyone please help by coming up with any one line?

I've wandered about something along the lines of.. 'helping to find acceptance and nurture hope'.

If I give a list of key words, could anyone come up with anything? I need it to be one short but powerful sentance.

Words that I'm bouncing around include:

acceptance
positive/ positively / positivity
hope
peace
nurture
move forward
encouragement

If anyone can come up with any ideas, it would be truly appreciated.

Anahata xx

I would need to know what service you actually provide in order to really help. Is it counselling? Or is it something to do with psychology? Or is it a more spiritual thing?

I wouldn't use the word 'helping' - make it more direct and active. I like Stickyproblem suggestions. Use 'enjoy' rather than 'enjoying' etc.

Thank you so much everyone, this is very much appreciated.
User147... it's a mixture of all 3 in honesty.

Keeping it real

topcat2014 Sun 30-Oct-16 11:15:16

It's worth thinking about how it would look as a web address or email address - and how you would give this out over the phone.

For me 'enjoynotendure'.co.uk or similar would be difficult to ensure the caller had managed to take down the email name correctly.

That could mean missing out on leads.

Accept the past, live for the future

BewtySkoolDropowt Sun 30-Oct-16 12:18:57

topcat she is looking for a tagline not a business name, I don't think people generally use taglines as a web address.

Positively Forward

user1477282676 Sun 30-Oct-16 12:29:25

Love the life you can live...today.

Moving forward with positivity and joy

Looking to the future and living in the moment

Making what could be into what CAN be.

Thank you everyone. I already have the business name, I just need a strong strapline . Any more for any more?

topcat2014 Sun 30-Oct-16 17:55:47

@betty - I see, hand't read properly.

However, always worth thinking about websites.

Note for example B & Q use a website of diy.com,

topcat2014 Sun 30-Oct-16 17:57:28

Sorry to be the voice of the dullard, but when you do pick something it's probably wise to check you haven't unwittingly picked someone else's trademark etc.

anahata Sun 30-Oct-16 19:04:56

Hi Topcat

I've already got domain name, and it is the same as the company name. I've just spoken to a friend that has the software to check I'm not using plagurism in any way.

I just need a strapline that I can then use at conferences and in support groups etc

Richardhun Sun 30-Oct-16 19:07:45

I'm sure b&q got beaten to the domain name b&q....

Nurturing your future

Finding acceptance... Nurturing hope

Because shit happens.
When life gives you lemons.
It's happy hour somewhere.

(I have been getting leaflets from support groups probably for too long and anything with nurture in it makes me want to punch myself in the face)
