Authors Karen Hoffman and Shera Dalin reveal the secrets to mastering the art of barter. They offer practical advice on how to: determine tradable skills, initiate a trade, set a fair exchange, and close a deal. Bernadette Dunne narrates in a silvery voice, delivering the valuable and inspirational information in a congenial manner.

Publisher's Summary

Learn how to barter—today’s best currency—in this comprehensive, up-to-date guide.

Just because you don’t have cash doesn’t mean you don’t want and need things. According to authors and business gurus Karen Hoffman and Shera Dalin, it’s time to get a little creative.
