Why Everyone Needs a Business Card (I don't care what ya do)

Many, many moons ago I was a bartender (exactly how many moons isn't important). One night in an attempt to set up a date, a guy gave me his business card that actually caught my eye...

Underneath his name read: "Director of Shenanigans." Needless to say, I was impressed that he created his own job title that was, well... creative. Clearly, this guy had no actual 'career title,' but he wanted to give something to people so they'd remember him. And, it worked (Well, kind of. I never called him but for plenty of other reasons). But, a lesson can be learned from this drunkard:
Do you ever find yourself striking up conversation with other people (or Mamas) at the park, gym or wherever? You're getting along, the kiddos are getting along and everything seems to click? Ever feel like you could totally put up with them for a play date, heck even a martini?  It's times like these where a business card would really come in handy. It's less invasive than asking someone to put your information in their phone or worse, asking them for theirs. You can hand them your card and leave the ball in their court.

Here's mine (sans cell #). What do you think of it?
You may be a little hesitant to make up business cards because you feel like you don't have a job that constitutes needing one, but being a Mama makes you a VIP. Your job title can be the "Director of Shenanigans," the "CEO of my Circus," the "Producer of all Things Wacky" or whatever you can think of.

After all, Mama needs her playtime too- with or without the kiddos. So go on and put yourself out there! You'll be glad ya did. Promise.
