What I am reading: Make Your Contacts Count (Networking Know-How For Business and Career Success) by Anne Baber and Lynne Waymon

Where in the book: page 72

Why I am reading: Learning how to network. Cause believe me, I have no CLUE!

Which quote: “Jot reminders on the backs of cards you collect, so that you can follow up and follow through.”

How this quote adjusted my thinking:

Now, how simple is that?  It never occurred to me to write on the back of a business card the context for receiving the card.

I have a business card  holder where I keep cards I have received.  Every once and a while I will look through them.  It is a neat trip down memory lane.  Imagine if I had handwritten notes on them?

How do you store the business cards you collect?  Do you write notes on the cards?  What is the date of your oldest business card in your collection?
