Eric Smith ’99 has some naming advice.

I just had a package delivered and the guy pointed to my company name on the shipping label and said “Is this your name?”
I said, “It is the name of my company, and I own the company, if that is what you are asking – but it is not my name in a personal sense.”

He said “Ohhhh, okay, I thought it was your name.”

My company name starts with a number and is follow by an adjective, and that is it.

Of course you would think that was my name. My parents had a lot of kids and just named us sequentially.

Cool. By the way, Eric is doing more and more funny blogging. Is that a good sign for the health of his business? Extrapolating from my vast knowledge on the subject (N = 1), I say Yes!
