I do not have a business card. I will never have a business card.
A business card in 2015 makes absolutely zero sense.
Let’s get back to the original reason people even have business cards: to deliver information.
Well, you might have noticed, smart phones are a thing now. And freaking everyone has one.
So, here’s what you do:
1. Take out your f*cking phone.
2. Email the person on the spot.
It’s better. It’s cleaner. You won’t lose the card. It’s efficient. It’s right. You can even turn the phone and show the person what you wrote down if you’re really that nervous about it.
Can’t believe this is even a discussion.
