Spring Renewal ~ Sometimes It Happens For a Reason

Our company name was confusing, to us, to our clients and to another company with a similar name. Simply stated, we needed to change it to eliminate the risk of being sued. We had read about the "Zebra" case and suddenly felt as if we might have our own case to worry about.

Sometimes things happen for a reason ~ So the decision was made ~ It was time for a new Spark, a time for Renewal, A new name for our business ~ An Inspiration for Us to Move On in a Positive Way ~

We live in Sunset Beach, North Carolina which is a coastal community near the border of North and South Carolina. Since we live so close to the
South Carolina border, we decided it was best for us to be licensed in North and South Carolina. With this in mind we wanted to change our company name to one based on where we live and work, Sunset Beach  ~ We decided on the name ~ Sunset Beach and Beyond ~

We contacted the company who designed our "old" company logo ~ Explained what we wanted changed and for a small fee they said they would be able to change our lettering in our logo ~ We are also in the process of designing a new website ~ another source of Inspiration, Renewal and Positive Growth for our company ~ It will reflect the lifestyles of the area and what the various communities have to offer ~

Buyers go to the internet to find homes but also want to know what the area has to offer ~ Being near the coast the beach is a big draw more many people ~ Many communities in the area are developed around golf courses ~ Boating, fishing, playing golf, walking, and biking are some of the activities that draw people to this area ~

Sometimes things happen for a reason and rather than dwell on the negative aspects of "having" to change our name, we will be inspired by our name change in a Positive way ~ for the Renewal and Growth of our BusinessChange is Okay ~ What better time to change than Spring, with new blossoms and buds growing everywhere in beautiful Sunset Beach ~

Richard ~ We actually did try that name out "Infinity and Beyond" but we got a nasty email from The Intergalactic Alliance signed by non other than BUZZ LIGHTYEAR SPACE RANGER asking us to step aside since he had it first ~ So we had to oblige him ~

What a great and grateful post full of inspiration and energy. Changing names, brokers, offices etc is never easy and yet you have inspired many to look at the change as a good thing that brings new hope and renewal. Way to go!!

Hmmm, headed over here to visit because of a comment in a Richard Yates post (not sure if I should backlink that or not ... is that a etiquette  thing?) Anyway, although I didn't know what your name was before, I love the Sunset Beach and Beyond! Descriptive and friendly!! Good choice!

Hi Frank and Karen,

I think your proactive posture and the fact that you are going to clearly stand apart, all come to be a great advantage for you and it must feel terrific to have a fresh new and more vital site and no more concern for the old site. The cool part is , using your old domain and pointing to the new site keeps your contacts and readers going straight to you and you benefit form the age of the domain. Well done and Congratulations on the whole new effort.

Frank and Karen, I love your new business name. You are so right about moving on when you run into obstacles. Instead of dwelling on something we cannot control, move forward. Great advice. Have a happy week.
