Nika's New Title CONTEST!

Win any Wealthy Decorator Product or Book

Can I get your help?

I've been thinking about my "title" for quite a while (the Designers' Success Coach), and I'm not happy with it. It bothers me for two reasons. First, it doesn't really flow off the tongue. And second, I don't feel it really captures - in a succinct and powerful way - what I want to do for designers.

My intention is:

To teach and inspire designers to create success and joy in their lives. To provide access to strategies and ideas for living a happy and successful life as a designer.

I've struggled with this by myself for too long, so I've decide to ask for help. In fact, I'm holding a contest to choose my new title.

The designer who comes up with the best title for me will win a choice of any of my books or products. You can see what is available here.

Be creative, and enter as many times as you'd like. There are no rules or restrictions on what the title can be, but here are my thoughts:


  • I want it to be a powerful statement of my intention
  • I want it to be easy to say
  • I like rhymes
  • I want it to be succinct
  • I want it to be fun!


Go for it! I really appreciate all your help, and I look forward to giving away a great success product, too!

CONTEST RUNS UNTIL AUGUST 15

Nika,

You surround your self with all those "mavens" so I think you should be a diva...The Designer's Diva, that is.

Hi Nika:

I've got just one for you that I think describes you best. Based on what I got from what you want to achieve, I think you should call yourself an "Inspirational Design Director".
You inspire and motivate designers to do their best--you teach them how to be successful at their business. You are truly an inspiration for me. Thanks for letting me join in.

Hi all!
Thanks for your great responses so far. But I just want to remind you - this is a title for ME, not for the business. So what would you call ME?
Thanks - keep 'em coming!

Louise Peddell said...

Hi Nika,

How about "The Designer's Marketing Mentor"
as a title!

Love,
Louise

Hi Nika,

Sorry that I can't help - bec. I LOVE your current title. It is what motivated me to contact you - the title to me seems powerful = successful! I talk to people about my voice coach and my designer success coach, though I usually say "decorating" success coach since designer can imply other facets (web designer).

Whatever u choice, I'll still call you my "coach" ;)

Warm Regards,
Ada

Hi Nika~

I was giving a lot of thought to your title struggle lately….

Frankly, there are too many divas and queens out there already….

The one that I keep coming back to is “Business Coach for Designers”. I know it’s not funny or “sexy” J, but very accurate and understandable.

I’ve thought of trainer, teacher, mentor, director, guide – and keep coming back to coach… Everyone understands what a business coach is. And “for designers” specifies exactly who your clients are.

Anyway, for what it’s worth…

If anything else strikes me, I’ll let you know.

Designers' Dream Steward

Hi Nika-

What about putting "Motivational" into your title since you really are all about inspiring and motivating. You could always have a by-line below it to further explain what you do-

Nika Stewart
Motivational Mentor

Since you like the name you have, how about "Success Coach for Designers"? This rolls off the tongue a little easier.

Hi Nika,

I agree with Peggy. You coach designers to success in the
design business. The title Designers' Success Coach completely identifies who you are and what you do!
