I’m Absurdly Excited

August 22, 2014

Not just because I have what sounds like an awesome job lined up for when I return to Detroit, not because I may very soon be responsible for the redesign and development for five related websites, but because I have ordered business cards.

This may come as a shock to the masses of people I’m sure are reading this, but I’ve long dreamed of having my own business cards. Throughout my childhood, I lamented the fact that I didn’t have a job mostly on the grounds that I had no reason to carry business cards as a result. This past year, though, things got downright embarrassing. The number of times I’ve taken someone’s business card and then had to say “Oh no, I don’t have one yet.” has been demoralizing.

I’m extremely excited to announce that I’ve gone ahead and ordered these from MOO and they should arrive soon. They were a little bit pricey and I know how you always see those ads for 500 free business cards and so on, but I’ve heard a lot of good things about the company and I wanted to try them out for myself. Apparently, I could’ve chosen up to 50 different images for the back for the same price? I’ll definitely look into that next time. I was also very taken with the idea of rounded corners. You’d think a person who hasn’t yet actually made much money wouldn’t be quite so quick to spend it, but I have faith that these cards are going to give me a nice confidence boost the next time I’m at some networking event.a mockup of my first business card

    Very exciting indeed. Business cards definitely staple the mark of professionalism and open doors for networking. Best of luck and maybe I’ll come across your card at an event.
