Business cards seem a little out of date these days. In our digital world, I more often than not now tell people to ‘Find me on LinkedIn’ rather then reach into my bag and locate a probably dog-eared business card. Although, with a name like mine, sometimes it is easier just to hand over something that has all my details printed clearly to avoid the song and dance of spelling my name (‘…no I-B; not I-V….’). So, I had some new cards printed when I started my new job and they are tucked away ready for use at conferences and meetings.
However, there are days that I wish business cards were more reflective of what is going on around me and could be used to explain how I am feeling or even suggest how someone might like to respond to my mood.
Here are some that I have found recently (and a couple of golden oldies) that would be particularly handy.
And finally, this one has an explicit language warning and as my kid reads my blog (but hopefully won’t click), you’ll have to go to this link for what is fast becoming my favourite saying. (Do not click if offended by the C word – and in this case, I am not talking ‘compliant’.)
