I love to barter. I think it goes back to the fundamentals of business when there was no common currency in the terms of money. Fundamentally, it trades what one business person has to offer of value directly for what the other person has to offer. It makes both sides feel good by doing a transaction this way.

Many entrepreneurs I work with have limited resources. So, I try to trade a portion of my help for all sorts of things that their companies offer. I have traded for cooking lessons, handyman services, bottled water, etc. I recently just traded some books for a used monitor for my son’s computer. John Hutchinson at Used-PCs were very generous!

What have you bartered for?
