It’s official — another dream come true. Hugh McLeod of designed a business card for me.  Here is his explanation. Thank you so much Hugh!

I have been a huge fan of his work dating back to when I had three daily readers. His creativity and insight were very inspiring, and still are.

My clients will laugh at the “you don’t need permission.” Now you will believe me, right?

This is part of a new series he is doing called The Daily Bizcard. Yesterday’s was a classic gem, dedicated to the marketing wizard Brian Clark of Copyblogger.


To really understand Hugh, get his book Ignore Everybody. The title says it all, doesn’t it? 🙂

  5. Cool post. I’ve heard good things about that book “ignore everybody”. You do not forget a title like that one in a hurry.

    That’s a great business card! I would add that you need a few people who say that what you are trying to do cant be done. Wanting to prove naysayers wrong is a great motivation!
