Most people who have a job or business have a business card. That card usually has such information as the company name and contact information. It also has the person’s name and their position or title. To me the most interesting part of a business card is the position or title. Some of these positions and titles are typical like, President, Account Manager, Administrative Assistant, etc.
Several years ago I started seeing “Mommy Cards”. These were very interesting and creative, (not to mention handy). The title on most of these cards were along the lines of “Heather and Johnny’s Mom”.
In the be beginning of starting my business, my title on my card was just simply “Artist”. About three years ago, I changed my card and this is what my business card has been since then:
The title under my name now is “Artist, Dreamer, Eternal Optimist”. This title line is very important to me, because in a nutshell, this says who I really am.
As things are changing in my art and in my business you are going to start see more of the “Eternal Optimist” part of my title. Some days my eternal optimism is through the roof and on other days it is on pretty shaky ground. But regardless if it is high or low, it is still always there!
So many people let their business card define who they are. Unfortunately, that definition has usually come from somebody else. I would love to see everybody carry and hand out a personal business card where they are the one that has defined themselves.
If you had a personal business card, what would it say? What title would you give yourself on your card?
If you would like to make you own card, here are several templates you can use. Just click on the card and it will take you to the template where you can create your own card.
Enjoy & have fun!
