Our Story

Blue Lion Owners

Toni and Alison met and worked together for over 6 years at a previous company. After years of successful collaboration, Alison and Toni knew there was a need for small businesses to have more customized HR and Operations support.

Both Alison and Toni recognize that small businesses make up a strong community and a strong economy. With this being the driving force, they decided to launch their own HR and Operations consulting business. Their goal was to provide small businesses with services “big businesses” have to create growth and opportunity.

“BlueLion”

Coming up with a business name is no easy task. We wanted to come up with something unique to us that would not pigeonhole us into one industry or service as we grew over time. One night in a Panera Bread over some mac and cheese an idea began to brew. We Googled “how to name a business” and millions of hits came up. One page suggested to start with a color…..a color…… okay, let’s give it a try. We didn’t want a red, too aggressive, yellow? Too happy and bright. Orange? Toni HATES orange… Black? Too dark… Blue?

Hmmm… Blue was a color that represented what we wanted our business to be, calming, light, stable…the ocean, not to mention it is a primary color! The next suggestion was to place adjectives. What kind of adjective could encompass all the things we are? Nothing. We decided to make a list of all the words we felt described us and what we wanted this business to be. Powerful, loyal, protective, fierce, a force to be reckoned with. What could encompass all of these things? A LION! A Lion is the King of the jungle….. or in our case…. The Queen! Then came the LIONESS and BlueLion.
