Choosing a business name...

I am in the process of establishing a bookkeeping, payroll processing and accounts preparation business (working with a Registered Tax Agent who then lodges the return if required). I am struggling to come up with a business name I'm happy with. I would like to keep it generic in case I decide to become a Registered Tax Agent down the track. I don't want to use my own name so the business can have its own identity. Please help!

Starting a Counselling Practice

I am currently working as a Support Worker for people with disabilities. I recently completed a Bachelor Degree in Counselling. Ideally I'd like to run a counselling practice where people can overcome problems like anxiety depression and behaviour change that lasts a bit longer than 6 weeks. I feel like I can't compete against psychologists who have a medicare provider number. I'm doing a postgraduate in psychology with the hope to get a provider number. I'd still have to do another three years of study. I'm 53. I've seen other counsellors do well without a provider number. My house isn't good enough for clients to have here for counselling sessions. I have had one counselling client since November he is doing very well now and contacts me once a month to check in. He isn't paying. My job that kind of pays the bills is only casual and I earn about $700 -$900 a week. My morgage is $310 a week my bills are around $250 a week. Not including food. I feel like I'm stuck chasing my tail. I feel like I need help to work on my counselling practice as a business not just an idea.

What's the best way to promote online services?

I am a partner in two education based websites. The primary purpose of the websites is research and support. The first is focused on student placements the second is academic mentoring. The problem my colleagues and I would like to address is to understand the best process for optimum website promotion.
