What Are Action Cards?

Action Cards are the avenues that allow you to quantify the gifts, talents, skills, connections, and knowledge that you usually don't count as assets or options. Action Cards let all of us experience the value and power of everything we have going for us that until now was probably invisible to us. Action Cards are the currency that lets us unlock opportunities and experiences, move us forward in life, and achieve our greatest goals. Your car, an amazing online group you belong to, your savvy cooking skills, a knack for Spanish or remembering names, or your friend in London—they're all Action Cards you can use and share creatively.

In the game of FreshBiz itself, all players start with five Action Cards, which they can use whenever and wherever they like. Each one is completely unique, and more can be picked up along the way. It's up to us to figure out the smartest times to play an Action Card so that it provides us with its best value. Also, as in life, players don't have to wait to use them. They don't need to wait for someone's turn, someone's approval, or even the seemingly perfect moment. They just need to recognize the cards and activate them.

Action Cards are literally everywhere waiting for you ...
