I’ll admit I’ve never been a fan of the paper business card. And did you know the paper business card is over 400 Years old?
Relationships are everything. I thrive on a juicy, connected, authentic conversation with an individual doing what they can to add something to this world.
And like the next guy, I abhor the superficial leisure-larry at the event that believes he’s networking by collecting as many business cards as he can and making sure he distributes as many of his as possible. Because, ya know “it’s a numbers game, right?”. BAH! That’s an opening for another post, at another time.
Sure, if we connected at an event (you know “clicked”), I want your contact information but now I have to scan the paper business card in, type it in or get an assistant to input the data.
