Ana's New Candle Business Cards

A couple of weeks ago, we got a great lesson in networking from a lady that Ana met while our kids were playing in the ball pit at McDonalds. They had talked for almost an hour, and the lady was nice enough to have given Ana some advice on schools and good neighborhoods to live. When it was time to leave, she simply said

"let's keep in touch, here's my card".


It turns out that she's a Mary Kay consultant ... it said so on her card.

When we got in the car, I pointed out the Ana (who is new, and therefore a bit "cautious", when it come to promoting our business) that we had just witness some very good "soft" networking. Her new friend didn't try to sell her anything ... heck, they didn't even talk about makeup. But, now if Ana does ever have the desire to purchase some Mary Kay makeup, you'd better believe that business card in her wallet is the first place she'll look.

Because of this lesson, we decided that it would be a good idea to get Ana some new business cards. Ana is much more personable than I am. Everywhere we go, she's having conversations and making new friends. Now, when it's time to go, instead of wondering whether we'll ever run into these people again, she's got a couple of candle business cards in her purse, and simply hands one over and says "let's keep in touch".

The cards look pretty cool. They have an attractive design, and all of her contact information. You can see what they look like here:

We bought a box with 500 cards in it. I'm really looking forward to having the need to re-order very soon :-)

Keep havin FuN!
