Thanks for these articles! I need to buy your book! This is great! I am just kind of starting with my cards... I only have 6 cards. I should come up with 2 dozen before I show a rep? It feels like so much! How about a dozen? Then I'm half way there! =0)

I would aim for at least 24, ideally 50. If you just want feedback (and not for a rep to carry your line) showing a dozen is OK.
