Get Carded.

All the panelists agreed that business cards are still a necessity, but one took the notion  a step further.  Instead of simply handing someone your card, make it your goal to get them to ask you for one.  Why?  Two reasons.  First, it forces you to become an expert at learning about the other person and presenting what you do in a compelling way.  Second, a card that someone asks you for means much more to them than a card you simply hand them.
