You don't have to have your own name in your business name even if a sole trader.
Depending on how you market your business, I'd think something along the lines of 'Lismore Lawns and Cleaning' would have more appeal.

And to be blunt, Logo looks crap. If you are going to go to the the trouble invest some money in your business and get an online mob to do something for around $50.

I always appreciate bluntness mate :D

 

i do like your name suggestion,   any recomandations for online places that make them?

with online places do they just make one and you have to accept it or do they give you a couple options?

My ABN is me (Drew Webb ) I use Drews Lawns most of the time. It,s not a bad idea to have your name up front.

 

Can i speak to Matthew not can i speak to Lismore. Who,s doing the work Matthew or Lismore ?  :)

Like Drew, my ABN is under my own name (Dale Porter), but I am trading as Dale's Mowing.

 

I decided to register my business name just to give me some backup if someone else decided to start using that business name. But it's a personal choice.

 

I did create my own logo (with the help of the other half) using Microsoft Publisher, but it was a simple idea and didn't take long....
