A few months ago, I went to a networking event in Cardiff. I had just introduced myself to another lone networker, when the organiser interrupted us and introduced me as Magenta. What to do? Do you correct the good intention, or do you smile graciously with an inner whoop as you realise your brand is getting ‘out there’?!
I went for the latter. Just for a little while. It was kinda fun. And over the last few months, my real name and my biz name have become synonymous – that’s cool. Most importantly, my name and my brand are becoming synonymous with impact, transformation, and unstoppability. That’s what I’m really all about.
I’m often asked “Why Magenta Change?”.
The Change bit is easy. I learned at an early age that change, in life, is inevitable. It taught me to be resourceful, that’s for sure. I carried that resourcefulness through my teenage years and into my professional life. My whole career has been about change and transformation: whether working with individuals, teams or organisations, the one constant has been change.
So Change was a given. Finding a word to go with it was harder, as some of you reading this will know. Having been through various options, I finally stumbled upon colours. One of my friends suggested something to do with turquoise – it featured heavily in my wardrobe, but that was all, I couldn’t find a relevance.
Then, I looked around my kitchen… hmmm. My beautiful strong pink splash back. What’s a word for strong pink, I wondered? And as I looked up colours, and then their meanings, Magenta just sprung off the page*.
I’m no colour psychologist, but I read how Magenta, as a colour, is an instrument of change and transformation. It symbolises universal harmony and balance… it influences our personal and spiritual development. It helps us to rise above the everyday dramas of our daily life to experience a greater level of awareness and knowledge. Magenta is the colour of the non-conformist, the free spirit. It pushes you to take responsibility for creating your own path in life… while assisting you in turning your ambitions and desires into reality.
And because it couldn’t describe my work better, Magenta Change was born.
Thanks for taking the time to read this short intro to Magenta Change. I intend to blog regularly now, initially as part of Sarah Arrow’s 30 day blogging challenge, to build my writing and blogging muscle – another step in my own personal development journey.
In the meantime, do say hello!
Be unstoppable today.
