So last week I was out and about around town and decided to stop in a newly opened boutique shop. I loved it. The aesthetic, the business model…everything about it was unique. A friend and I got to talking to the shop owner about how she got started and specifically how she’s currently running things. My friend and I mentioned a business idea we’ve been throwing around and then it happened…the shop owner asked for a business card. I was also making plans in mind for marketing or having review on sites.
AHHH, I didn’t have one with me and instantly felt inferior and less professional. I felt like if I would have had a card with me, the business plan we were blabbering about would have been more convincing. That’s the moment that I decided I really needed to make more business cards…and pronto. I’ve known the importance of having a business card since my college days, but I’ve been slacking.
Have you guys ever been caught in a situation where you wish you would have had a business card or some kind of leave behind? I’d love to hear your “I could kick myself in the face” moments.
