I finally gave in...

I've been navigating the business without business cards for some time, but along the way, I've gotten a few side eyes because I didn't have any on me. I figured we were past that era—this is the age of social media, right? Most people usually just ask for the Instagram, so I adopted it as my digital business card.

Wrong. And if I'm being honest, it was a pretty lazy move.

Through my interactions with a few folks, I've learned that having a tangible way to connect still has special value—and it makes you more memorable. After all, social media moves fast. DMs quickly fill up, and usernames get forgotten, at least until the person randomly pops up on your feed.

I actually had fun designing my business cards (made and ordered via Canva). My logo is also super cute (like, I'm super proud of it), so I'm glad I took advantage of the opportunity to bring them to physical form. I feel like they give me a greater sense of responsibility and credibility.

On the other hand, there are some pretty cool digital business card companies out there—my friend just put me on to Popl, where someone can quickly scan your phone and gain access to all of your contact links.

I think it's cool to have both options, to please various customer bases, and we have to keep all of our bases covered as business owners.

I hope this helped.

Keep grooving,
