It has come to my attention that some business owners (artists, you ARE a business owner!) are not aware of the benefits of bartering. Especially in today's economy, we must utilize every resourse possible to help our businesses to flourish. Bartering is a sytem of give and take. We do it everyday. You give the gas station $40, you get a tank full of gas. You give JC Penney $100, and get a few items of clothing. You send Ford, GM, Chrysler, Chase, Citibank, etc a few hundred dollars every month, they continue to allow you the privilege of driving THEIR car. Yep, it's theirs until you finish paying for it. So, why not barter on a non-cash or reduced-cash rate? You can barter for babysitting services, lawn care, cooking, cleaning, whatever your household needs are. If you have a business, this should be your FIRST thought when you need something. You need business cards, call a graphic designer and see what he/she is in need of. You need a caterer for a small affair, see what you can do for them in exchange for them providing you with food at low or no cost. I know people have an issue with the something for nothing thought, but it really isn't that way. Time, for most, can be just as valuable as money. You can volunteer to do mentoring. That is time bartering.

Let's give this bartering a try. Find me on facebook every Monday. I, along with Lori Banks (she spear-headed this project), will be bartering on our pages. If you don't do facebook, please e-mail me (2DiamondDivas@gmail.com or Patrece@TCMradiostation.com) and I will post to facebook for you. Please post the products and/or services that you are in need of, as well as the products and/or services you are willing to barter.
See you Monday!!!

Funny how you would post this, I was just talking about this yesterday... it is amazing how most of the business owners don't understand this- barter is the twin-brother of networking- they go hand in hand!

[FOOD FOR THOUGHT]

“The man who stops advertising to save money is like the man who stops the clock to save time”

Why Is It... A man wakes up in the morning after sleeping in an advertised bed, washes with an advertised soap, shaves with an advertised razor, sits down and drinks advertised tea or coffee, drives to work in an advertised car and writes with an advertised pen. Then... He refuses to advertise, saying "Advertising doesn't work". But when his business fails, he finally advertises: "Business for Sale" - Anonymous
