Today a co-worker who is new to my business area asked me, “what’s on your business card?”. My response, “I don’t have a business card”. It was a short conversation, but it stuck with me. I’ve been with my company for almost 13 years and have never requested a business card. I’ve never felt any of my roles required one. If asked, I’ll provide my business partners with my contact information. I’m armed with my electronic signature that’s on every e-mail I send. I can send my contact information via text. Do I need a business card?
I don’t need one. I don’t think anyone needs one in this day and age of smart phones, web enabled devices, clouds and big data. But, this conversation kept running through my brain because maybe it’s about time I feel important enough to need a business card. “What’s on my business card?”–Rachel Papke, Super Mom, Text me; don’t call because talking to me on the phone is an impossibility.
Being a Mom is the job that makes me feel important and worthy of a business card. “What’s on your business card?”.
