There is a lot in a name! When when picking a business name, it can rather daunting. It is a lot like picking the name of your child. It has to be 1) something you like 2) something that you will like for a long time 3) something that represents you/your business and 4) one that hasn’t already been a registered business in the state!
I picked Integrated Behavior Services. Of course, the behavior services part was easy. I went with integrated because my vision for the company is to work with the client and their behavior as it affects different aspects of their lives: school, home, community. According to dictionary.com, the definition of integrated is “combining or coordinating separate elements so as to provide aharmonious, interrelated whole:“. For me, it is important to look at the person as a ‘whole’ and work with them in different environments.
I was a little concerned about the initials -IBS. I didn’t want MY company that I would be pouring my heart and soul in to be confused with the health problem of IBS- Irritable Bowel Syndrome! Lucky for me the word ‘behavior’ in the field is most often abbreviated as Bx….whew….so…the initials for my company are IBxS!!!
I am VERY happy with the name and the abbreviation!
Until next time…
