FIT closed out February 2010 with a wonderful evening at Good Day Books in Ebisu, where yours truly gave a BookNotes talk about FIT to a very appreciative crowd. It was great to meet new people and share my experiences with them. One of the things I covered that night was the power of the meishi, or business card.

From the seven brave souls that exchanged cards with me at the end of the evening, no one had their picture on their cards yet. Well, the year's still young and there's plenty of time to get yours printed before April 1, which is the beginning of the fiscal year in Japan and also the time when the weather warms up, cherry trees bloom and people are in the mood for life, love, work and movement. So, get your new meishi and walk into your next networking event armed and ready to connect.
