Imagine yourself in a business meeting. After you are done with the presentation, your clients were totally impressed with your presentation and want to contact you in the future. When they ask for your business card, you fumble on your pocket for a pen and a small piece of paper. Since you can’t find any, you end up borrowing your client’s pen and ripping a piece of paper from your files.
Not very impressive, right?
What could have saved you from such embarrassment is a small piece of paper that contain all your personal and business details called the business card.
