New Property Investment Project Business Cards

Right, so here are the facts…

  • My blog is growing on a daily basis (I think)
  • I get various property-related companies and professionals emailing me all kinds of shit on a daily basis
  • I don’t run my blog as a “business” per’se, but some people tell me I probably should
  • I sometimes (rarely) attend networking events
  • I’m not professional at all

Earlier today I spoke to someone that knew all of the above, consequently, she told me I needed business cards, and without them, I was virtually a short, fat, balding leper. She started off by telling me why business cards are important (I also wondered if she had a life). During the explanation, I heard keywords being muttered, like, “professional”, “branding” and “networking” She then explained what should and shouldn’t be on business cards. I was planning on putting a picture of my hairy arse on my one. But thankfully this person intervened and explained why that wouldn’t be a good idea. Close call.

While I was sitting there, half concentrating on what was being said, and half concentrating on flicking the dry-cum off the tip of my penis (residue from the previous night), I was thinking, “I run a shitty little blog, not Ebay. This is ridiculous. Actually, scratch that, you’re ridiculous.”

Eventually, I caved in and agreed to create my own business cards (probably just to shut her up).

What impact has business cards had on my life/blog/business? Well, now, for once, when I attend networking events, I can “exchange” business cards with the elite. I definitely feel more professional.

I’ve currently only drawn up 6 cards in total, but I plan on drawing out 6 per day for the next 30 days. That supply should keep me going. I’ll probably be selective to who I dish them out to (only important people), because I don’t want to keep drawing up new ones. Here is a picture of my new business card (I hope the person that lectured me earlier is happy now)….

On a serious note, that REALLY is my new Property Investment Project business card. Hopefully I’ll exchange one with you some day soon…

Just looked through the pile of business cards received from 100% Design, and honestly, I tell you - yours are second best looking.

I appreciate your honesty, Ciara.

But I must confess, i'm like a proud father- the birth of my cards are nothing but spectacular. Sure it may not be as fancy as the pile you collected from 100% design, but mine are wholesome and from the heart.

Sorry, wrote the comment in a hurry. What I meant was that yours are my favourite after Wei Ling's from Plus-zero.net. Others should take lessons from you:D

Ahh that makes more sense.

At the back of my mind, I was actually thinking, "this woman must be straight up tripping to grade my shit so low" But I'm glad that's sorted :)
