Not Your Grandma’s Resolutions

You know what day it is, right? This is the day that the whole world comes together and says, “I wish I’d worked more”. No, wait. That’s what people say on their death bed. Or rather, what people never say on their death bed. Also? The green squigglies are telling me that “deathbed” is one word. Also? Happy New Year.

If it’s not too late to declare my New Year’s resolutions, I’d like to name them here. In addition to the Word document boiler template called “New Year’s Resolutions” that provides the 3 default items, I am adding one more item:

• lose weight

Get Back to Work: Business Cards

Get Back to Work: Business Cards

In my upcoming book, Get Back to Work: Smart and Savvy Real-World Strategies to Make your Next Career Move, the fourth chapter – Business Cards – shares ideas about what to put on a business card and where to print them. 

Here is an excerpt from the book:

Business cards (also referred to as networking cards) are not only for those employed by businesses. Anyone seeking a new opportunity should have a business card. They are a great networking tool, so have them ready and use them.

There are many different places where you can have business cards printed. Try www.vistaprint.com and www.gotprint.net on the Internet, or use a local print shop. You can also purchase business cards at an office supply store, a Wal-Mart, or a Target. Microsoft Word can even be used to create and print them.
