Recently I was asked to share my advice regarding personal business cards (not the one from your employer, but one you create yourself.) I recommend everyone have a card that truly expresses who they are. if that comes from your day job, great! But if not, a personal card is the way to go. Here's why...
Why It's Important to Have a Personal (Business) Card:
When I decided to pursue my dream of being a cabaret singer, I invested in singing lessons and in a personal business card. My card had my stage name and title, a specially created email address and phone number, a microphone design, sultry red color, and my take on a George Bernard Shaw quote.
I gave the cards out to the musicians I wanted to work with and the owner of the club at which I wanted to sing. My cabaret cards showed I was serious and professional to the people who would ultimately help me make my cabaret show called, "Follow Your Dreams" a reality.
We are all unique and when you express yourself with a personal business card, you/it will naturally stand out. Put meaning behind the design or color or quote and you will be naturally more memorable especially to those who resonate with your message!
What would you put on your personal business card?
