Are you looking for a job? Are you currently running your business? Then
your business cards are vital for marketing whatever skills/services you
render. And even in cases when you are looking for a job, you got to
develop your mindset for running a business of your own. Here are a couple
of proven tactics for using your cards for increasing your chances of
safely landing a job or coming up with an overall successful business
Never ever leave home without your cards. Before you leave home, you
should make a checklist of what you have to take with you and what not. If
the business cards are in your checklist, you just can't have them left
