I plan to set up a business which sells software that I develop myself. To advertise my business, the basic things is for me to print my own name card that I could distribute it.
The problem I face now is what position name I should put in the name card? (like Chief Executive Officer, CEO and etc)
Being a one-man-show in my business, it is kinda difficult to put a position for myself. I am the programmer, the sales person, the account officer and etc!! Or I just leave it blank, without putting any position.
p/s: Maybe can give your position you gave yourself for your own business. Just for reference purposes

It depends who I am communicating with.
If it's with an American, I go for CEO or CTO. If it's in the UK, I go for the generic 'Director', or 'Executive Director'. Essentially I try to go for something that is not particularly descriptive, but carries the message that I am positioned to make decisions.
There are exceptions of course: if I am discussing techie, say regarding hosting, perhaps I might change to something more specific, but usually, a generic title serves its purpose.
