What’s a Migman?
Migman is actually my son’s nickname that I gave him when he was a toddler. How did I come up with that? The story goes like this.
When he was an infant, we would put him in a bassinet in our living room and I would stand over him and in my best Don Corleone imitation I would say to him, “Miggityghoul why are you so cute?” Well my wife could not get Miggityghoul out, she got caught on all the “g”s. So eventually, I shortened it to Mig than added “man” when he was a toddler for no apparent reason other than I wanted to say a second syllable. Here’s why I named the company after him.
Back in 2006, I needed to form a corporation and a holding company for real estate for a deal I was working on. So I named the corporation after my wife’s nickname and the real estate LLC after my son’s nickname. The deal fell through and I dissolved the corporation but I kept the LLC because when I had mentioned it to my son that I was forming this company and naming it after him, his eyes lit up, looked up at me and said, “I’m going to be famous!” Needless to say I didn’t have the heart to dissolve the LLC, so I kept it.
A few years later when I started freelancing, I wanted to form an LLC for the business. I remembered that I had an LLC and I remembered my son’s reaction, so I changed the name of the LLC from Migman Real Estate, LLC to Migman Media. I chose “media” because at the time I was doing photography, video and web. Today the focus of Migman Media is building better sites for better business.
