I’m sure plenty of people who don’t know me but hear that my name is â€œRuthâ€ and that I’m lawyer envision me to be a stuff old Jewish woman who embodies all the lawyer stereotypes. Â I suspect that’s who my co-panelist at Phoenix Comicon thought he was pair with when he heard he was doing a panel on Comic Creator Rights with â€œthe lawyer.â€ He was probably surprised to see a young pixie of thing in a pink geeky t-shirt instead. We had a great time doing our panel. He said we looked like gurus but I think we look like a couple of Muppets in the photos.
It’s always been important to me to have effective non-boring business cards. I made a joke after Phoenix Comicon that I should have business cards made that say, â€œRuth Carter, Esq., Not That Kind Of Lawyer.â€ Recently, I needed to order more business cards and I figured, since I’m paying for shipping for two boxes of cards, I might as well make it four – so I made them! I’ll probably use them at events where I’m more likely to meet people who are likely to wrinkle their noses when they hear I’m a lawyer.
What do you think? A friend mentioned that these fit in well with my goal to becoming a minimalist.
I love these cards. We’ll see if these become my standard business card. It takes me about six months to go through two boxes of cards so we’ll see how I feel the next time I need to reorder.
