After much consideration and suggestions from my wonderful friends here at Fabulously40, I have decided that I am going to take a leap of faith and start a new business  "security by phone," which will check on the elderly,"latch key children," etc.  I have already begun working on my website.  

I want the name of my business to be warm and welcoming.
I am pretty stuck on “Tender Touch Telephone Service.” (TTT)
But I would LOVE your input PLEASE!!!  If you have any ideas for another name,or think this name is too “fluffy” I welcome (and NEED) your opinions!

I could sure use more opinions as to whether this is a business You, or someone you know would use.

The cost would be $25.00 monthly for one daily call Monday through Friday.

    • I love “Safe and Sound“!  I call my mother every day. She is 67,a recent widow and not in the greatest health.  Sometimes I get so busy that I can’t remember if I have called her or not.  I get up at 5:00 am and work until I drop.  I do not want to call her that early in fear that I may alarm her, so sometimes I do not get around to calling her until late afternoon.

      If she doesn’t answer I panic!  I think that this is a wonderful idea.  I would still call my mother every day knowing that she looks forward to it but this would be a nice added service to our relationship!

      Best of luck to you!

    • What a great idea! I’ve found that doing exactly this, asking others, AND brainstorming ideas (which means, just write anything - no thought, just do it) helps for ideas too.  Once you choose the name, you‘re “stuck” with it forever - that could be good and that could be bad.  Choose wisely!

      I like safe and sound - that feels good to me.  Don’t forget to make your clients sign a waiver of liability, meaning that you are not responsible if anything happens while “you‘re on watch“.  I’m assuming your business plan has something in place for this and a way to contact family members if your client (the elderly person) needs a product or some help with something.  Just thinking out loud!

      Best of luck,
      Kelly

    • Safe and Sound sounds better.  

       Tender Touch Telephone service could be confused with another sort of business altogether!

      This sounds like a great idea.  At the moment it’s not the sort of thing I would have a need for, but if my mother were widowed, it’d be comforting to know I could subscribe to something like this.

    • Thank you SO MUCH everyone for your help and your opinions.
      I feel very encouraged!
      And Joyfull I am definetely considering your name suggestion!!!

      Do you think Safe and Sound may sound like an alarm sytem?
      Just asking for more advice because I like the sound of it,but want to be careful since as Lipdiva mentioned, I will have to live with the name.

      I think you all are right about the name I had. WHEW,I’m glad I asked my favorite girls~!  

      If anyone has any other names that pop in their minds I would love to hear them.

      Thanks a million zillion~!

    • I love the idea; and Safe & Sound is really catchy.  My mom is 83 and lives alone too and that would be such a wonderful thing to have around here.  I know that us kids cannot always check on her.
      You are such a wonderful person to even think of doing something like this for others. What a relief it could be to family members.
      Thank you in advance for being so kind at heart.
      Good luck

    • I really like Safe and Sound too, but does sound like an alarm biz. I’m not sure that should be a hindrance however. My husband actually has his own alarm business, Eagle Life Safety Service, and people often get the impression his is saving the eagles! But it hasn’t hindered his business growth at all.

      But here’s another suggestion: SecureCall. Not very warm and fuzzy. I still like Safe and Sound.  

      Very cool idea, shopgirl!

    • I think this is a great idea also. I agree with the one person about confusing it with another type of business and also the safe and sound is too much like an alarm system.

      Maybe something along the lines of Home Alone, Telephone Care, Daily Checkup Call, Telephone Angel....just something to throw out and brainstorm.

      Best to you on stepping out of the box!

    • Paris,thank you... because brainstorming is usually fun for me, but I am so stuck right now with finding a name I like.

         H-E-L-P~! lol lol

      I thought of a couple more that I’m unsure of :

      “Caring Calls“, “Comfort In Knowing“,“Caring Guardian.”

    • Still Safe and Sound.  Personally that name portrays a good vibe.  Be safe and be reassured that it will be sound.  So what it sounds like an alarm system.  First the name sticks to mind, then after explanation, they know what’s it all about. Thirdly, Shopgirl, that was the very first bus. name you came up with.  You are spinning yourself around.  I am not here to convince you but think, take a step back, narrow down to a few, then what do you like and don’t like about the name.  Peace my dear.

    • Sooooooooooooo.... it has been a long, hard decision between 2 names, one of which was Joyfull’s awesome recommendation. But I think I am going to go with
      “Safe At Home.”  

      Because this name is used a couple of times in the National Registery list I will have to add one more name at the end for my web site.

      Lordy be this has been a lot of work and research to get started. YIKES!!!!!

    • Hi Della, This is just a suggestion but if you wanted to use that name you can put hyphens after each word....Safe-At-Home...that way you would not have to add anything to it. Or you could put SafeAt-Home. Just a thought.

    • Cool idea!

      I like  Safe at Home or Safe & Sound! Tender Touch doesn’t resonate and I don’t see men signing up in droves or recommending others to Tender Touch! Also can go more into urban locales with these names.  

      Love to hear of more about your plan - is $25 enough - would you have range of fees depending how long the call is or other services that would be natural upsale.  

      Also, lots of possibilities for hiring independents - and cool ways you can market this!

      Have fun!
