Or, Debbie, you could use a title like we did at Apple: “Jack of all Trades”; “Universal Expert”; “Genius”; “Chief Cook and Bottle-washer”. As a writer I thought “Fabulist” would be neat. Turns out that I had to give a dictionary with each business card I handed out, so that card didn’t last long…

Seriously, there is no one title for your talents. You wear many hats and each hat warrants a unique card. Trying to combine your titles onto one card is like piling 3 hats onto your head; you can do it but it will just confuse people.

I see nothing wrong with having 3 cards. I have this many and hand out one or more to people who might be prospective customers for my skills.
