    Hi everyone

    I’m Anna, I have recently started my new business and was very happy to find this site :-)

    I am a mobile nail technician offering both in school hours and after business hours services. I specialise in acrylic nails, manicures, pedicures, pamper parties and offer wedding packages as well. My page is http://www.facebook.com/nailsbyannaoshea

    The idea behind starting a mobile nail salon was so that I can work around my children and offering services that fit in with the busy lives of my clients, making it easier for them if they have children or if they work full time and just want to stay home.

    Kind regards
    Anna

    Welcome to FS!

    Are you going to have a website, or just operate from your FB page?

    Welcome aboard Anna!

    You have such a nice name for a premium nails brand. Something like “Designer Nails by Anna O’Shea” sounds like someone the stars would use. It’s adding your last name that elevates it, because it makes you a nails identity rather than just another nail technician or business. Just a thought :D

    Great to have you here.

    Dave

    Hi Dave

    Thank you for your lovely comment. I have been thinking about your comment since I read it this morning and really do like the name “Designer Nails by Anna O’Shea” as I have a certain type of person in mind that I want to target.

    How do I go about changing my name? Because I have already registered my business name and have only started operating a month ago. Does it need registering considering I would be using both my first and last name?

    Thank you
    Anna

    Hi Anna,

    From a quick search of the ASIC site it seems as though you’d just register the new business name (under your existing ABN). You would then hold 2 business names (until the first one expires) and could use either. You’ll just have to pay another fee for the new name.

    Link and excerpt below:

    http://asic.gov.au/for-business/renewing-and-maintaining-your-business-name/update-your-business-name-details/how-to-update-business-name-details/

    “Updating your business name
    You cannot change your registered business name.
    If you want to trade under a new or different name, you must register a new one.”

    It’d be great if any of our members who have been down this path could pop in to confirm. But if you’re unsure just phone ASIC.

    Good luck!
