Start ‘em young

22nd September 2008 by Denise

Do you find it difficult to network? To walk right up to people and say ‘Hi! I’m X from Y company, nice to meet you..!’ It’s not as easy as everyone makes out, is it? Even if you do have a beautiful MiniCard or Business Card in hand. Well, if you’re thinking of having children who will one day become Captains of Industry, you could help them out a bit by starting them off networking when they’re young. By the time they get to pre-school they’ll be old hands at this game and will work that reception room like a pro.

How? Easy, just get them some MiniCards (easier for little hands) and get them out there practising. digitalkatie has wasted no time with her son Louis, who is now eight months old. He’s got his own set of Text MiniCards all ready for handing out at the Scottish Learning Festival this week:

At this point I must admit to being unsure as to whether Louis is giving a seminar at the festival or merely watching. I like to think he’s giving a seminar though – he sounds like a little chap we could all learn from.

If you’re at all worried about a potential ‘cards+mouth=soggy cards’ situation, don’t worry. That problem has already been user tested and dealt with a long time ago, by the lovely Alice. She found that due to the matt laminate on MiniCards, they were far more durable than your average business card. Hooray!

So, what are you waiting for? Set your children up with the skills they’ll need in later life, right from the very beginning. (Bonus points if you can get them coding something that integrates with the MOO API before the age of 5).

    Our son is a big fan of Moo.

    We got a batch of Moo Cards printed up for his christening last year which we handed out to all the family and friends who came along and he’s also a bit of a fan of your stickers…

    @Si – that photo is *so* cute! We really need to get him in here and working for MOO :)
