I recently started a company, and as the only member, I am not sure what title to give myself. While it feels silly to spend time on something so trivial, I have a few concerns:
- Ideally, I want to indicate that I am operating a company rather than being a sole trader (this is important in my case as my company is a type of non-profit, so in the UK at least this makes some difference).
- I don't want to imply that my company is bigger than it is, or that I'm managing other people (which I feel titles like "director" do).
- I worry that if I leave out the title altogether, people will think that I just work for the company, and again may think that the company is more than one person.
My title would essentially only show up on emails, linkedin, business cards etc.
Thanks in advance!
