Stop wasting your time, energy and money on business cards!

How many business cards have you purchased over the course of being an entrepreneur?  How many times did you have to change your name, phone number or email address to keep up with your brand only to throw away the last 250 business cards you ordered?

Remember the days of hangin out with your friends just because...

Well, that was networking authentically. Not once did you hand out a business card to keep in touch.

You shared a common interest. You made new friends through playing sports, going to the beach and lollygagging at the mall. And then you grew up.

Now you only hang out [network] with the intention of getting something out of it.

Get back to doing what you love. Just do more of it. And the clients will just show up. They will be attracted to the common interest you share. Be transparent so they can reveal their problems. And then, you can hit them with the solution...subtly of course.

In this episode find out how:

  • Why I refuse to hand out business cards.
  • Why I choose to stop attending business networking events altogether.
  • How to increase your bottom line by NOT giving out your business cards.
  • What you can say to the next person who asks for your business card.
  • Where you can go to connect and attract clients.
