It's A Big Deal!

So, does this look familiar, yet different. Yep, I have had a little name change over here at The English Pea. Last week I filed my paperwork to become an official Limited Liability Company. Feels like kind of a big deal and I guess it really is - a big step for me and one that I wasn't sure I would ever make.

Now, I will be brief so as not to bore you with business details, but the name change basically came about because there is actually another business with the same name - sort of - in the state of Georgia. So... in order to differentiate myself from this business I had to make some alterations.

Just fyi... if you are ever in a place where you are starting your own business with a name you created there are several things you need to do and one of the first is to file a name reservation with the State. If I had done this back when I selected the name over two years ago this would have never been a problem (as the other business was just formed in August). Lesson learned, but I am kind of excited about the new name and an even newer look - a little more sophisticated if you ask me. Would love to hear your thoughts!
