You Should Have Your Own Business Card

Others call it calling card but whatever you call it, you should have this with you esp. if you have a business.

If you love meeting like-minded people, you should have your own business card because chances are those people you meet will give you theirs and ask you one.

I used to frustrate and got disappointed on myself whenever that thing happened in the past because you know, that is the best chance to promote who you are and what you do.

People you meet in seminars, events or workshops might be your future business partners, clients, and customers. The same also to them and that's the power of business or calling card. Don't miss the chance of introducing yourself and getting to know others.

I know you have this in mind and thinking, "But Jethro I don't know how to make or create one". Don't worry as I will tell you what to do.

First of all, you should have all your information ready that you would want to put and see in a business card.

Normally, your full name, things you do, contact numbers, and social media accounts are there so for people whom you give it to will know where to find and look for you. Sometimes, a company or business logo can be placed as well.

Then, go to the nearest mall in your area and look for a stand or stall that offers the creation and printing of business cards.

Go and approach them. Usually, they will ask for the information I asked you to prepare and let you choose from the list of templates and available papers. It's your call what you choose and based on your preference.

Within minutes or an hour, you will have your sets of business cards. Normally the price you would pay is 5 pesos per card and they will require you a 100 pieces minimum.

Anyway, that is cheap and requires you to spend 500 pesos for your business. Remember, in every business, there is always a need to pay and risk something.

Also, if you want to outsource or let other people who are experts in business card making do the design and layout for you, then is there. Usually, freelancers will provide you with their outputs and allow you to make few requests for revising their work before they will give the final design to you with your information on it. And then print it on your own.

Or, there are independent printing companies out there which you can hire or book their service. You can contact them via their email, website or even in their Facebook page for your orders. And within less than a month or even a week, you will receive your package fresh from their printing office.

That' it. I hope after reading this you will now decide to have one esp. if you don't have a business card with you until now. Thanks for reading!

By the way, here are my actual business cards. The white one is my first card which I printed in mall. And the other one with a cartoon theme is the recent one which I printed from the independent printing company.

Avoid Sticking To Unproductive People

Actually, this stuff I am about to share can be good or bad. It depends on where you get influence from. If the influence can help you achieve your goals, then that is good and vice versa if it can only lead you to misfortune. Anyway, I would like to put here the paragraph I read somewhere. I hope it makes sense to you. Avoid sticking to people who have hobbies of collecting stuff which are too much expensive. In the end, you'll be like them through the influence or the process.

Earn Real Money From Your Blog

If you want to make money from your blog, be serious about it and treat it as a real business. What I mean about that is don't depend on free stuff only and operate without spending a dime. Purchase a domain name either from these two well-known and trusted domain registrar: or . Consider also the storage or placeholder of your web pages or blog by buying web hosting. It is where you have a complete control over your website or blog including the design and code-behind.

Don't Look Outside, Look Inside

I learned that if you're planning and looking on what kind of business to start in, then don't look outside and be hard on yourself, but look inside. What I mean by this is don't imitate what others are doing just because that business is in or is doing well because chances are it will not work to you or you lose interest on it as time goes by. Look at your skill sets and choose one among those that you really love doing and profitable. Meaning even if you're not being paid to do it, you wake up every day and do it anyway. You will not treat it as a work or job because you love what you are doing. But I warn you that you should treat it as a business. Be serious in achieving your goals at the same time enjoy every moment.
