    Is it a good idea to use your own name as a brand for your business and website? I am thinking about using my name as my brand but before I jump in, I want to know if there are any 'cons.'

    It`s a good idea - people prefer to trust a person than some amorphous entity. But be prepared for personal attacks - you will need a thick skin.

    Well, it is not totally a bad idea Dusart. If your name is somewhat catchy and easy to remember, it could be a good thing.
