    Whats the title on your business card?
    Currently working on my 'solo' first business card and was wondering what title would be appropriate for me. I usually just doubled up my work business card, but now I'd like 'my own'. I don't know, having 'Director', or 'Consultant' on the card sounds way too serious for me and I was wondering what else could I put on.

    Alternately, having 'Marketing Guru', 'Code Ninja' or 'Serial Entrepreneur' sounds way to obnoxious and lame. Or maybe it's not and you've had super experience with it.

    Please share some ideas

    "Cool Guy", "VIP", "1337 kid256", take your pick.

    Why do you need a title anyways? My business cards just show my name and my services, with the business name and logo on the flipside.

    Ah that was what I was thinking to.

    The key is the services that's provided, business name and logo on the flip side.
    I like that.

    Well, what do you do and what sort of product/service would you want the people you're giving a card to buy from you?

    No title is the way to go. Since my 'title' changes depending on who I'm selling to, I think the best way to go is without a title.

    Who wants to carry 5 business cards around for different titles? Just make a generic one without a title.

    Sometimes I'm selling web design, SEO, coding services or a certain software of mine.
