My first business card

I was going through some storage boxes, and discovered it.

In 1991, my two classmates and I produced a yearbook video for our graduating class (at Sentinel Secondary School, hence the name). We sold it for $20 a tape, and probably netted $100 each at the end of the year. It did give socially-awkward 17-year-old me something to do at parties and sports events, instead of actually talking to people.

Yeah, I was a bit of a nerd in high school. This should come as a surprise to no one.

I remember my mother pointing out that we probably shouldn’t be wasting our money on business cards. After all, who did we have to give them to? She was right, but we got them printed up anyway. Totally worth it.


  1. I remember my first business card. I started a computer business with one of my friends at the age of 17 too. Our customers consist mostly on relatives. It was fun. Now I can look at that business card and easily see what I did right and what I did wrong. I agree with you when you said “Totally worth it.”
