I’m pretty sure Mark Zuckerberg’s current business card doesn’t say, “I’m CEO . . . bitch” (as it reportedly did, once upon a time).

In fact, my hunch is that Zuckerberg no longer has a business card.

That’s based on what I’ve observed within my sphere of clients, friends, and acquaintances.

Namely, people’s business cards — at least amongst entrepreneurs and the self-employed — often start out full of attitude and ego.

As they mature, their job titles and business cards actually become more modest, even as their financial success and power grow.

Finally, when such people are at the pinnacle of their careers, at least a few forego a business card altogether.

Their attitude:  “What do I need a business card for?!?”
