If you could go to Craig’s list and put up something like, “I need dental work, are you a Dentist? If you are I will exchange a dental appointment for any of the following skills: I can garden, clean, do yard work, paint, am trained in massage therapy, and can fix your computer.”
You would see things like, “I’m a mechanic, I’ll fix you and your families cars, foreign or domestic for as long as it takes to get my daughters some braces. Roadside assistance negotiable.”
The possibilities are endless...
And it wouldn’t be the type of thing where you can only use the service if you join and pay monthly or yearly dues. There would be no fees, no dues ever. That’s the point. No terms and conditions other than ones you make when you barter with someone, whatever you agree to with them.
Yea…let’s do that. It’s a great idea, there’s probably a law against it.
Or is everyone's desire to make a buck too strong? Would it even work?
