“Roots Up!”


Description from J Yee smart chick: Since January, I have been talking with a couple of classmates of mine about starting up a consulting partnership to work with each other to do organizational change work. We are working on developing a partnership agreement, business plan, etc after months of discussion and talking to several people who do consulting already.

Coming up with a name for our partnership has taken a few weeks, and it's been fascinating to see how our name has evolved, "Roots Up" is it - we like it because of the symbolic meanings it has, both for acknowledging our cultural roots, and for the healthy growth and development we want to encourage...whoo hoo! :)

Now, I am on the lookout for some suitable supporting sources of income as we build up, my partners graduated last year and both already have "day jobs" that sustain them.

    Thank you very much Mary and Debra, we’re very excited about finally picking our partnership name; one of my partners Maria experimented with some fonts and visual images for our new name, she put some roots under the “R” and a douglas fir tree on top of the “U”, and it looks wonderful!!! :)

    Yep, I think so too, she did a fabulous job of creating a vivid image, based on our new name and the associated meanings – now how would I convey THAT name with beads, eh??? :)
