Saving Money- Barter To your hearts content

With todays economy most of us have things we do with out. If your self employed why not try bartering. As a Massage Therapist I LOVE Bartering and have bartered for needs and wants. I have bartered with a Veterinarian, an Optometrist, for carpet cleaning, housecleaning,vitamins, installation of a ceiling fan,  and more.

Some people pay a large fee for bartering organizations who do the work for you and set up the barters but if you are willing to do the leg work yourself its FREE.

When I want something I just pull out the yellow pages and start calling. For some of my barters I've found interest in the first call but when I bartered with a Veterinarian it took me about 20 calls to find someone who was willing to treat my cat in exchange for Massage. But it was well worth the effort.

Don't be discouraged if you don't get interest right away or people act like your crazy because there are plenty of people out there that will be interested.

And by the way, I would love to find other things to barter for here in the Palm Springs area.
I've been a Massage Therapist for  over 15 years and come to your home/office. I LOVE giving relief to clients suffering from conditions such as Fibromyalgia, Migraines and just plain work/life related stress and pain. Its wonderful to be the highlight of someones week.

Whether I'm giving the lightest touch to someones Grandma or the deepest Massage to the Hardcore Athlete I fashion each massage to the needs and comforts of the client.

In closing, Barter to your hearts content. Louise 760-671-4062
