A name change is a big decision, not only because you’re changing the most essential part of your identity to the business world, but also because of everything else that must change! The process to change over to a new name is just that — a process. It can’t happen all at once, so creating a good plan of action over a period of three to six months is your best bet. Some must be done before you change your name, some can be done before or after.
