EN ROUTE PHOTOGRAPHY

This is what I´ve been up to today

Let me tell you a little story. When I first started to think about my future in photography and a possible company name, my very first idea was EN ROUTE Photography. I felt ike it encompasses what I´m all about, my gypsy spirit, the coolness, the constant journey of my life and I was smitten right away. However, when I told AC my name name, he didn´t like the idea one bit. I got a bit discouraged, I started doubting myself and ultimately the idea to host a naming competition was born. As you know there were a lot of great submissions, however I´ve decided to give EN ROUTE another chance and secretely included it in my top 5. ;) To be honest, I was shocked how well it was received and even though BohoLux certainly made it run for its money, I´m really happy that based on your votes EN ROUTE has won the competition and it will be the name of my future company. :D A big thank you to all 220 of you who voted, I´ve learned another very important business lesson: LISTEN TO YOUR GUTS! (and now even AC likes the name too! :)


But as I told you at the very beginning, there will be a winner of the prizes and according to the rules I´ve drawn one lucky participant from my original post and thus the winner is..... drumrolls please....


Congrats ag and a big thank you to everyone else for voting! I cannot wait to share the next steps of this process with you and for now I´m just really happy that I finally have my name! ;) I´ll be sure to celebrate tonight! ;)

How exciting and I love the name! I agree that one should always go with their gut, it has ways of telling you things quietly hoping you might just hear it! :) I hope you are having a Terrific Thursday, Gabby!

This story was exactly what I needed to hear today! I am in the process of renaming and relaunching my blog, and I just couldn't think of something for what seems like ever. Finally, it clicked on day and I found a name I just loved, but when I shared it with some close friends..they weren't too crazy about it. But I still loved it! I didn't do a poll like you, but I have chosen to just stick with my initial gut and launch with that name. After all, it's my blog and my business and no one else absolutely has to like it, right?

Congrats on your new business venture! You will do fabulous.
