Give your personal brand some moxie | Creative, doable personal business cards

You’ve heard it a million times. Get personal business cards.

You probably know you should have personal business cards (and many of you probably do), but have you ever thought about the value of having creative, memorable, impressive cards?

While it had been a lonely experience, neither of us was alone in it, and knowing that was a huge relief.
